The NBA season will start in about a little less than a month from now, so for now we can use this thread to discuss which players may be in the waiver wire pool throughout the season, players who will begin in the waiver wire pool and then become solid players and etc. But throughout the season, we can use this thread in case if anyone needs help or advice on which players they should pick-up or which players should be dropped and etc. This is a very important part of fantasy basketball and can help you a lot if you use it the right way.

The annoying thing about the Yahoo waiver wire is that in the middle of it they list all the rookies and bums, which goes on for pages, and after that comes a number of pages with some pretty good role players and vets.

I never understood why they don't put all those scrubs at the end and put guys like for example Jerry stackhouse in the middle of the ranking instead, where they belong, but they've had it this way since I began playing fantasy bball in 2006.

So keep in mind that on their current list there still are a lot of usuful players to be found at the end of the ranking, behind all those pages of noobs and bums.

Would you guys have OJ Mayo on your fantasy team? I'm looking to draft him in the later round.

I have drafted 3 public league teams to practise for the PSD drafts, and so far I drafted him twice, in the 9th and 10th round I think.

We'll have to wait and see if he lives up to the hype he (once) got, but I believe he has all the tools, so he could be a huge steal that late in the draft.
And if not then there is always plenty of guys who emerge throughout the season to replace him with. It's a gamble worth taking Imo.

Both have the same amount of potenial. Depends if you need a big man or a guard.

Right now the only rookies that make me feel comfortable enough to give a mid round draft choice for is Oden , Love and Beasley. Outside him I'm not so sure I would risk burning a pick on one unless its late but by that point any high profile rookies will be long gone.

In the end you decide how Yahoo presents its players on the wire. It is a query after all. You have a lot of options available to you, it doesn't have to be the scenario you're presenting. You could always make a watch list as well.

Should I keep Aaron Brooks (keep in mind that Alston is out and Lowery is in) or go for Augustin or Hinrich?
