Pickups of the Day for Monday!
Iman Shumpert Kings – Replaced Yogi Ferrell in starting 5 and went nuts with 26 points, three boards, four dimes, three steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers on 9-of-13 shooting. The return of Bogdan Bogdanovic will hurt, but it’s hard to look past this line. This could be a one-hit wonder, but it was a big hit if that’s the case.

Montrezl Harrell Clippers – Blew up for 17 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, a steal and three blocks in win. He finally came through after some preseason hype.
Kent Bazemore Hawks – Backed up Friday’s three-point dud with 23 points, five boards, four assists and four 3-pointers. He’s too good not to be owned.
Buddy Hield Kings – Has scored between 17 and 19 in all three games with six 3-pointers.
Trey Lyles Nuggets – Shooting dreadfully right now (2-of-12 in last two), but had six points, four boards, three assists and three steals on Sunday. Gets a boost as long as Will Barton is out. Juancho Hernangomez is also worth a look.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Clippers – Bounced back from off night on Friday with 12 points, five boards, four assists and a steal. He’s the Clippers point guard of the future and is closing games.
P.J. Tucker Rockets – Has been quiet for two games and only had three points, three boards, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on Sunday. But Mike D’Antoni loves him and he’s played at least 34 minutes in all three Rockets games this season.
