Quick takes: Wade, Bosh in Miami, Boozer in Chicago

Dwyane Wade

Two-thirds of the dream trio that has been the recipient of so much attention this summer have finally decided on their future.

Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh announced today that they plan to sign with the Miami Heat.

From a fantasy standpoint, it’s not all that exciting — yet. It’s too early to jump to concrete conclusions on Wade and Bosh’s values next season, since we don’t know who else will (or will not) sign with their squad. As it stands, the Heat only have Wade, Bosh, Mario Chalmers and Michael Beasley on its payroll. If they fill out that roster with a bunch of minor role players, Wade and Bosh remain fantasy studs, though their stats might take a slight baby step back.

If, however, Wade and Bosh are joined by LeBron James, all three dudes will see their values take a material hit. (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Zach Randolph finished with 31 points, 18 boards, 1 assist, 1 steal and 2 turnovers. He shot 67 percent (12-18) from the field and 88 percent (7-8) from the free throw line. He’s improved a few of his stats this season, making him a top-25 fantasy player.

Noteworthy Lines:
Kobe Bryant – 15-28 FG (54%), 7-10 FT (70%), 2 3ptm, 39 Pts, 2 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO

Beast of the Night: Russell Westbrook put up 29 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals and 4 turnovers while shooting 54 percent (13-24) from the field and 60 percent (3-5) from the line. In leagues that take into account field goal percentage and turnovers, Westbrook’s value is limited, but his ability to put up great all-around numbers is too good to overlook.

Notable lines:
Michael Beasley – 10-21 FG (48%), 1-2 FT (50%), 1 3ptm, 22 Pts, 8 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Blk, 3 TO

Kirk Hinrich – 5-12 FG (42%), 3-4 FT (75%), 2 3ptm, 15 Pts, 3 Reb, 7 Ast, 4 Stl, 1 TO

David West – 9-13 FG (69%), 2-2 FT (100%), 22 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 3 Stl, 2 Blk, 3 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Steve Nash finished with 16 points, 2 threes, 5 rebounds, 13 assists, 2 steals and 2 turnovers last night. He shot 64 percent (7-11) from the field but didn’t shoot any free throws. Nash continues to do well in the Suns’ return to their run-and-gun style of play, as his points, threes, assists and shooting percentages are all up from last season.

Notable lines:
Luol Deng – 8-16 FG (50%), 7-7 FT (100%), 1 3ptm, 24 Pts, 13 Reb, 5 Ast, 2 TO

Danilo Gallinari – 6-17 FG (35%), 0-1 FT (0%), 6 3ptm, 18 Pts, 3 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 TO

John Salmons – 7-14 FG (50%), 5-5 FT (100%), 1 3ptm, 20 Pts, 7 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 4 TO

Rashard Lewis – 3-9 FG (33%), 1-2 FT (50%), 2 3ptm, 9 Pts, 3 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 TO (continue reading…)
