Just when you thought it was safe… A surprising trade emerged today sending Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets.

Game watch:
4 games: ATL, HOU, IND, LAL, MEM, MIA, MIN, NJ, NO, PHI, POR, SAC, TOR
3 games: BOS, CHA, CHI, CLE, DAL, DEN, DET, GS, LAC, MIL, NY, OKC, PHO, SA, UTA, WAS
2 games: ORL

Waiver-wire watch:

  • DeJuan Blair: trending upward, double-dipped in two straight games
  • Omri Casspi: flavor of the week in Sacramento, hot now but will cool off soon
  • Matt Bonner: worth owning in deep leagues if you desperately need threes
  • Luke Ridnour: he’s playing well and though he’ll be in a timeshare soon, he’s still worth a look
  • Nick Young: if you like streaks, give Young a look
  • Nazr Mohammed: decent source of blocks and boards in deep leagues (continue reading…)
