This is a tough time for waivers, so like I always say on the podcast, trust yourself on how you view demand on the wire. For the adds from Wednesday night, upside is king and especially young players on bad team. I didn't mention any Rockets or Spurs because P.J. Tucker and Tony Parker don't offer much upside.


Bam Adebayo - Getting minutes next to Whiteside will be big.


Stanley Johnson - Still not sold as a 10-team guy.


Dragan Bender - Basically played five positions.


Andrew Harrison - He should get a big chance, especially with Wayne Selden struggling. Kobi Simmons is hurt in the G League, too.


Josh Gray - Suns out of guards, basically.


Wayne Selden - I still believe, but he's cold.


Luc Mbah a Moute - He's fine, but needs steals for value.


Royce O'Neale - If Johnson and Hood are gone, Royce is the guy.


Cedi Osman - Free him on Thursday!
