Just when you thought it was safe… A surprising trade emerged today sending Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets. The Nets also made a deal with the Golden State Warriors involving the great Troy Murphy. So raise your White Russians to Mikhail Prokhorov and settle in to peruse the quick fantasy implications below. For my wordier take on the deals, head on over to DimeMag.com.

Terrence Williams will be picked up in a lot of leagues this morning, but how much optimism should he deserve? Head over to DimeMag.com to read my take on yesterday’s three-team deal that had the New Jersey Nets send Williams to the Houston Rockets and Joe Smith to the Los Angeles Lakers. In return, the Nets will receive Sasha Vujacic from the Lakers along with a 2011 first-round pick, and a Lottery-protected 2012 first-round pick from the Rockets. The Rockets also sent Jermaine Taylor to the Sacramento Kings for a future second-round pick in order to make room for Williams.

If you want a quick and dirty summary, here you go: (continue reading…)

2010-11 Fantasy basketball mock draft w/ Weakside Help: Round 11

Mario Chalmers

The pickings are getting slimmer than than Fatboy — or Shady — or Carlos. (Ouch, 0-for-3.)

I’m already getting teary over the fact that we’re nearing the end of this delightful mocking adventure but there’s still work to be done, so let’s truck on, friends.

Concerning Luol Deng vs. Rashard “the hack” Lewis, it appears that things have nearly evened out. Regardless of the outcome, I’m glad Henry and I will have this trifling scuffle to keep track of throughout the season.

We’re not working with all that much in these parts, but what we have are a bunch of players who, like Henry said in round 10, have shots at making some serious comebacks. The rest of the picks basically force you to choose between the known and the unknown. The risks are certainly mitigated down in the last three rounds, but a steal down here will draw the ire and admiration of your opponents.

For you naughty ones who have to catch up, here are round oneround tworound threeround fourround fiveround sixround sevenround eight, round nine and round 10.

Now, onward to the almighty round 11: (continue reading…)
