Alexey Shved is not expected to be waived by the 76ers.
He's been one of the worst guards with respect to efficiency, and maybe a change of scenery will help him. Shved will compete for minutes with Tony Wroten and rookie K.J. McDaniels. We'd target Wroten and McDaniels before Shved in almost any format. Aug 23 - 8:27 PM

Alexey Shved will be headed to the 76ers in a three-team deal involving Kevin Love.

Shved had difficulty cracking the rotation in Minnesota last year (10.5 minutes per game), averaging a meager 4.0 points, 1.5 rebounds, and 0.5 three-pointers a game while shooting a dismal 32.1 percent from the field. He also had some trouble staying on the court as various injuries held him to just 63 games. However, he will certainly have opportunity on a horrific 76ers squad, but we'd rather draft a guy like K.J. McDaniels or Tony Wroten in standard leagues.

Alexey Shved may be included in a deal for Thaddeus Young.

He'll likely be traded with Luc Mbah a Moute, which makes things very interesting for the Sixers. Shved will have a very good chance for playing time, but his inefficient scoring severely caps his upside. We'd rather target someone like K.J. McDaniels or Tony Wroten.

Alexey Shved is likely to miss Eurobasket qualifiers due to a groin injury.

His name is also popping up in trade rumors. Shved has been a disaster in his NBA career, making just 32.1 percent of his shots last season while his passing has been sub-par as well. The addition of Zach LaVine may push him out of the rotation.

Alexey Shved will sit out the Wolves' Summer League game on Tuesday due to right groin tightness.

It's Summer League so it makes sense for Minnesota to be extra cautious, and this sounds like a minor day-to-day ailment. Shved shot 32.1 percent from the field last year and the Wolves want him to play more point guard this season, so hopefully he can quickly get back on the court with his teammates.

Alexey Shved said he is ready to accept his role on the Timberwolves as a point guard.

Shved saw his numbers drop across the board in his sophomore season and Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders thinks a permanent move to point guard will help restore his confidence. "The thing that I like about him is defensively," Saunders said. "He is pretty long and lanky and stays in front of his guy and probably led us in rebounding in the scrimmage." Shved won't return much value in standard fantasy leagues, but he sounds like he's ready to accept his new role with open arms. "It doesn't matter - point guard, shooting guard," said Shved. "I just want to play."

Wolves coach Rick Adelman said that Alexey Shved needs to learn to move without the ball.

"He has been struggling with what to do: Do I finish? Do I pass the ball?," said Adelman. "When you’re not getting the minutes, it’s hard ... He has to get us into things [playing backup point guard while J.J. Barea is out], and he has to have a nice balance to what he’s doing." Barea is questionable for Wednesday's game, but even if he sits there's no reason to gamble on Shved in typical fantasy leagues.
Mar 26 - 1:43 PM

Alexey Shved will not play with a mask on Saturday night.

He said he was happy about losing the mask, but it's not likely going to improve his play. Shved has regressed this year and is more trouble than he's worth in fantasy leagues.
Feb 22 - 3:07 PM

Alexey Shved played 19 minutes on Monday with 11 points, one board, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers on 4-of-10 shooting.

He was hot to start, but fizzled out and missed his last four shots. Shved really can't score and is often out of control while he's attacking the basket, so it's hard to imagine him ever being consistent. He can be left on the wire despite how he could clear the 20-minutes plateau, but there is just no upside here.
Feb 11 - 12:11 AM

Alexey Shved did not score on two attempts in six minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

His two misses were not even close to going in and he looked bad, which is par for the course. Excluding the restricted area, Shved is shooting 23.0 percent from the field on the year. He could get more minutes, but with an offensive game like that, who cares?
Feb 8 - 11:43 PM

Alexey Shved (nose) played with a mask on Friday, scoring seven points on 2-of-5 shooting with three rebounds and one steal in 14 minutes.

Shved is back into his backup role and has no real fantasy value.
Jan 25 - 4:44 AM

Alexey Shved (nose) will play against the Warriors on Friday.

He broke his nose on Tuesday and should be ready to go. Shved is sporting a larger than average mask on his face, but it probably won't hurt his production. He doesn't shoot the ball well enough to be owned in standard leagues.
Jan 24 - 9:03 PM

Alexey Shved suffered a broken nose on Tuesday in the second quarter and will not return to the game.

Expect to see him wearing a face mask the next time he's on the court, and consider him day-to-day for now. Chase Budinger will see a boost in minutes if he's going to miss time.
Jan 21 - 10:35 PM

Alexey Shved finished Sunday's defeat with 11 points, three rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes off the Wolves' bench, making 4-of-7 FGs with three 3-pointers.

Shved was one of the few bright spots for Minnesota tonight, but he's shooting 28.9 percent from the field this season and seems to have lost all confidence in himself on the court. Chase Budinger's return makes it even more unlikely that Shved will earn a bigger role in the second unit and owners should be skeptical until he consistently plays well.
Jan 12 - 9:34 PM

Alexey Shved said that he hopes to remain with the Timberwolves, adding, "If I want to play more, I've got to work more."

"Basically, he hasn't played well," said coach Rick Adelman, explaining Shved's limited minutes and 24.4 percent shooting. "There's nothing [I] can do about it. I think the one thing you can do is keep talking to the guys who don't play and say 'You have to be ready.'" Shved will earn a guaranteed $3.3 million next season but the Wolves are rumored to be shopping his contract.
