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…)

Beast of the Night: Pau Gasol showed that his hamstring is just fine, as he finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 steal, 5 blocks and 2 turnovers last night against the Wizards. He shot 39 percent (7-18) from the field and 88 percent (7-8) from the free-throw line. Gasol will take a slight hit when Andrew Bynum returns, but he’ll still be a top-tier fantasy stud.

Lines for Discussion:
Chauncey Billups: 5-13 FG (39%), 11-12 FT (92%), 4 threes, 25 Pts, 3 Reb, 5 Ast, 4 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO

Stephen Jackson: 8-22 FG (36%), 2-2 FT (100%), 5 threes, 23 Pts, 9 Reb, 7 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 3 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Luol Deng put up 26 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal, 2 blocks and hit 2 threes in a blowout victory over the Warriors last night. He shot 47 percent (9-19) from the field, 86 percent (6-7) from the free-throw line and had no turnovers. Deng remains a good sell-high candidate before Carlos Boozer returns later this month.

Lines for Discussion:
Ray Allen: 13-23 FG (57%), 2-2 FT (100%), 7 threes, 35 Pts, 1 Reb, 2 TO

Dwyane Wade: 2-12 FG (17%), 4-6 FT (67%), 8 Pts, 1 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Blk, 6 TO (continue reading…)

Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 11.8.10 (Weekend Recap)

Weekend Wonder: Pau Gasol averaged 25 points, 10.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1 block and 0.5 turnovers in two games over the weekend and had his fourth career triple-double on Sunday. Gasol is putting up ungodly digits with Andrew Bynum still making his way back, but should remain a top dog once the man with weak knees hobbles his way back to the court.

Lines for Discussion:
Roy Hibbert (11/5): 4-11 FG (36%), 6-7 FT (86%), 14 Pts, 12 Reb, 4 Ast, 6 Blk, 6 TO

Gilbert Arenas (11/5): 6-13 FG (46%), 2-3 FT (67%), 4 threes, 18 Pts, 1 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 Stl (continue reading…)

LeBron James: 10-21 FG (48%),  8-12 FT (67%), 3 threes, 31 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 Blk, 8 TO
