This Week’s Topic:
Out of the many names being bandied about in rumors, who do you think could benefit the most from a change of scenery from a fantasy perspective?

My Response:
Not all trades are made equal. For example, it’s hard to imagine Antawn Jamison’s fantasy value not taking a hit with the move to Cleveland.

On the flip side, a player a player who was just dealt to the Wizards should see his value soar. Of course I’m talking about Dallas’ Josh Howard. His minutes are down with the Mavs this year and his overall production is worse than even  his rookie season.

Safe to say he’s worn out his welcome in Big D. Washington, however should welcome him with open arms. He gives them a versatile scorer, capable of scoring both inside and outside. Sometimes a change of scenery is what a player needs to clear his mind and start fresh.

Under Flip Saunders I expect an increase in points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, and three-pointers. I would expect his shooting percentage to increase as well despite a lackluster debut.
