Friday and Wednesday night are the two craziest nights of the regular season for pickups, but there will be no more. Here's a look at who had a good line heading into the final weekend. Also make sure you look at your schedule to see which days you need players.

 

Rodney Hood - Love me some Hood.

 

Mike Muscala - He's actually a must-add guy.

 

Kyle Lowry - He's back.

 

Ben McLemore - He's the captain now.

 

Ray McCallum - Ray Mac is getting tons of minutes.

 

Derrick Williams - Rudy and Boogie are probably done.

 

Omri Casspi - He's safe, but the upside is too low for my liking.

 

Bojan Bogdanovic - He's looked fantastic again.

 

Dennis Schroder - I'd guess Teague misses a game, but Schroder isn't healthy.

 

T. J. Warren - He should get more minutes with the starters stinking it up.

 

C.J. Miles - He's not really a pickup and is a roll of the dice.

 

Jabari Brown - We got the Jabari vs. Wiggins matchup! Just kidding. Really hope Jabari Parker comes back strong.

 

Rodney Stuckey - Ditto with less threes.

 

Jared Sullinger - He should be over 20 next time out, which is enough to put him on the radar.

 

Paul George - Solid in limited playing time.

 

Jason Thompson - He should get some double-doubles.

 

Dwight Buyck - 25 minutes at point guard for a decent usage guy is fine.

 

Lance Thomas and Quincy Acy - Take your pick. Acy has a higher upside.

 

Jodie Meeks - He's playing a little better, but the minutes aren't increasing much.

 

Marcus Smart - We have to see it again.

 

Jrue Holiday - He had a brutal game, but at least he played.

 

Aaron Gordon - Very impressed with his improved FT%.

 

Troy Daniels - Hornets are done, so maybe they give Troy a look.
