O'neal - Always been an issue of health with JO, I think playing alongside Bosh will motivate him though.
Duhon - Same, similar role with Bulls, irrelevant fantasy player nonetheless
Camby - Down, less rebound and block opportunities at his secondary position.
We disagree slightly
Baron and will be about the same.
I'm confident they're gonna Run and that Kaman is now the odd man out.
They just picked up Azibuke too and Al Thornton is better running the floor anyway. Baron will be fine but I expect his numbers to look similar to what they were when he was playing under Byron Scott with a few more break out performances since he's their best scoring option.
Camby will see a slight regression not dramatic because although he has help they'll be plenty of rebound opportunities due Kaman being such an injury risk. And It's possible Kaman might make it easier for Camby to grab boards and put backs.
10 to 14 pts, 11 boards 2 blocks is about what I expect from Camby!
Agree on Brand
Maggette Stay far away he never makes it through an entire season.
But his stats should stay the same because the perimeter players dominate the GS offense. So he's gonna see plenty scoring opportunities rebounds etc no matter what. I expect Jason Richardson type numbers from Maggette but he's an injury risk don't touch him.
Duhon is a wait and see waiver wire steal after the trade deadline.
Nate is not a true point and Duhon is the closest thing.
Marbury is prolly gonna be gone around the trade deadline. I doubt before the season starts. But his contract will either be traded or he'll be bought out. Duhon doesn't have value till Marbury is out of the picture. Letting Marbury play will get his stock up to make him easier to move. And Nate is not a true point.
I don't know what to expect from O'Neal
He's not an above the rim player and he's not a dominant rebounder. He's not a true Center neither! He real position is PF!
The guarantee is he'll avg 3blocks no matter what!
I'm confident he's gonna avg 10 boards but that's not special and next to Bosh and considering his size, he should get 14 easy because he's their only Rebounder beside Bosh and should contend for the rebounding title by default. He's capable but 12 is probably O'Neal's ceiling in boards if he put his mind to dominating the glass every night(Which is unlikely).
I say Avgs of 15pts, 10-11rebs and 3blocks around 46percent shooting is safe for O'Neal but don't draft high due to injury risk. Although I do like his chances to make it through the whole season due to him not playing last year to get back to 100percent again!
