The Nets will give newly-acquired Brandon Davies a look to see how he fits their roster.
There had been talk that the Nets might waive Davies and his non-guaranteed contract, but the team has until January 10 before his contract becomes guaranteed. Davis doesn't have much fantasy value, but he could be a short-term option in deeper leagues if Kevin Garnett (foot) and Brook Lopez (back) miss extended time. Dec 11 - 11:29 AM

Date:

The 76er will acquire Andrei Kirilenko, a 2020 second rounder, right to swap 2018 seconds and cash for Brandon Davies.

He was in the rotation and starts on the nights Nerlens Noel sits, but now he's probably not going to get minutes with the Nets. Davies' depature means more minutes for Jerami Grant, Luc Mbah a Moute and Henry Sims.
Dec 10 - 9:13 PM

Brandon Davies played 19 minutes against the Spurs during a 109-103 loss on Monday, scoring eight points with two rebounds and three assists.

Nerlens Noel (hip) is only day-to-day, so Davies probably won't have much value beyond today. He can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Dec 1 - 10:04 PM

Brandon Davies will start next to Michael Carter-Williams, Hollis Thompson, Luc Mbah a Moute and Henry Sims.

Nerlens Noel (hip) is out and there should be plenty of Davies tonight. He made five starts before tonight, averaging 8.4 points, 4.4 boards, 2.2 assist and 0.6 steals. He's worth a look as a plug-and-play guy.
Dec 1 - 6:41 PM

Brandon Davies (left shoulder contusion) is available to play on Monday.

We hadn't heard of previous word regarding Davies' shoulder, but it sounds like the team isn't concerned about it, so fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned either. Also, this is Brandon Davies we're talking about.
Dec 1 - 1:50 PM

Brandon Davies is starting against the Blazers on Monday.

He will likely have a tough day at the office because he's going to guard LaMarcus Aldridge. Davies has been very inconsistent and he is likely just going to split minutes at power forward with Nerlens Noel. Robert Covington is also a candidate to get minutes at the four. This is a situation to avoid in most fantasy leagues right now.
Nov 24 - 6:31 PM

Brandon Davies will move back to the bench for Wednesday against the Celtics.

He had been playing well for the 76ers, but his minutes might be taking a serious hit with Nerlens Noel back and the team giving Robert Covington some burn. Davies can be cut in just about all leagues.
Nov 19 - 5:30 PM

Brandon Davies did not score on Monday with four rebounds, four assists and one steal.

He has a little more competition for minutes with Robert Covington around. Davies has lost a bit of momentum and he's not likely to stick in the starting lineup much longer. If you can swap him out for Covington, go for it.
Nov 18 - 1:01 AM

Brandon Davies hit just 3-of-12 shots in Friday's 88-87 loss to the Rockets on Friday, finishing with seven points, five rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

Davies should be watched while he is starting and/or getting decent minutes, but he has to do a lot more before owners in standard leagues should go out of their way to roster him.
Nov 15 - 1:06 AM

Brandon Davies will join Tony Wroten, Hollis Thompson, Luc Mbah a Moute and Henry Sims in the starting lineup.

Davies has been good in some spots and he has a decent matchup against Donatas Motiejunas. Although, Nerlens Noel will likely get the bulk of the minutes in the frontcourt.
Nov 14 - 6:46 PM

Brandon Davies played 24 minutes off the bench against the Bulls on Friday with seven points, two rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.

He did not play well at all tonight and lost playing time to a suddenly hot Henry Sims. Davies should be better his next time out and is worth a look in standard leagues.
Nov 7 - 11:17 PM

Brandon Davies will come off the bench against the Bulls on Friday.

He's been great so far with an effective field goal percentage of 64.0 on the season. Davies will anchor the second unit with K.J. McDaniels and should still be able to match his 10.5 shots per game form the last two games. He's worth using in daily leagues today.
Nov 7 - 5:29 PM

Brandon Davies started at PF and hit 9-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 20 points, four rebounds and a steal in Wednesday's tough loss to the Magic.

It looks like Davies is now the starting PF for the Sixers and he's worth a look in deeper leagues, as well as dailies. He played 29 minutes, but once he starts missing shots, we doubt he'll be quite this exciting on most nights. Congratulations if you had him in a lineup tonight. But if Nerlens Noel is going to miss time with his fresh ankle injury, Davies could continue to be a sneaky fantasy play.
Nov 5 - 9:48 PM

Brandon Davies will start at power forward against the Magic on Wednesday.

He turned in a nice 13-point game on Tuesday and Henry Sims has been underwhelming to say the least, so coach Brett Brown is going to make the switch. At this point Davies looks like a much better add in deeper leagues than Sims and he offers a higher upside, as well. Fantasy owners in standard leagues can probably wait a game or two before grabbing him.
Nov 5 - 5:28 PM

Brandon Davies is a candidate to start at power forward for Wednesday's game as Nerlens Noel moves to center.

Coach Brett Brown was hesitant to commit to Davies at Tuesday's practice even though he ran with the first team while Henry Sims ran with the second unit. When asked about Davies possibly starting, coach Brown said, "I don't know. But what I do know is I don't feel a prisoner to anything. I don't. It's not a knock on these guys." Regardless, Davies makes sense as a flier in standard leagues while we can get behind you parting ways with Henry Sims. Check back before Wednesday's game for an official update.
