Enes Kanter - No Favors on Friday.
 
John Henson - He should be owned everywhere.
 
Giannis Antetokounmpo - I can’t quit Alphabet.
 
J.J. Hickson - He’s a little boring, but he’ll be a double-double guy.
 
Nate Wolters - He’s not really an add with Ramon Sessions coming to town.
 
Arnett Moultrie - I was high on him in June, liked him in January, so I have to like him a lot now. Might be the biggest winner at the deadline.
 
James Anderson - He’s very good without Turner. Check this out from his blurb: Anderson has a usage rate of 14.1 percent and made 44.9 percent from the field vs. a usage of 19.1 percent and a field goal percentage of 46.3 without him. Turner led the team in total shot attempts and coach Brett Brown will have to dial up some new ways to score. Anderson offers some decent upside for treys, steals and a solid field goal percentage, so he's worth a look in standard leagues.
 
Caron Butler - That’s two in a row with his 17-pointer on Thursday and 21-point game on Tuesday.
 
Danny Granger - He might get bought out, but you’d think Granger would want a chance for minutes after his terrible 2013-14. His contract would stink based on his performance so far (contract year).
 
Byron Mullens - He fits as a Spencer Hawes replacement. Although, he looks very, very bad in ’14.
 
Kyle O’Quinn - He is probably the big winner from the Glen Davis news (assuming Tobias Harris is owned everywhere). 
 
Elton Brand - He’ll get some run for the next two games.
 
Hollis Thompson - Solid in percentages and taking treys. Bigger opportunity in front of him.
 
Ramon Sessions - His slashing style has to help, but he’s an expiring deal. It’s hard to imagine the Bucks using his minutes instead of developing other players.
 
O.J. Mayo - I’d feel a lot better about adding him with Brandon Knight playing.
 
Jarrett Jack - He should be busy on Friday with C.J. Miles and Dion Waiters out vs. Toronto.
 
Henry Sims - The Philadelphia Secondrounders.
 
Timofey Mozgov - No more Javale, so he’ll have some value the rest of the way.
 
Tony Wroten - His percentages stink and the MCW-Wroten backcourt doesn’t work in large doses.
 
Andrew Nicholson - The Magic want him to play more, but he’s been a letdown.
 
Evan Fournier - Ty Lawson should not be out much longer. The Nuggets looked good in their big lineup.
 
Anthony Randolph - He’s still Anthony Randolph.
 
Marcus Thornton - I’m not a fan and Shaun Livingston has played great.
 
Jermaine O’Neal - The Warriors simply can’t play him big minutes.
 
Jeff Adrien - Larry Drew.
 
Aaron Brooks - He might have a couple games worth of value.
 
Dante Cunningham - Ronny Turiaf went down, Nikola Pekovic should be back soon.
 
Gary Neal - His value will go down compared to how the Bucks were showcasing him.
 
Jan Vesely - The Nuggets bigs picked a bad day to play well. 
 
Jordan Hamilton - He lost value on Thursday with his new team.
 
Eric Maynor - Nope.
 
 
Side note again: Don’t cut Terrence Jones.
