I wouldn't even pick up Battier if healthy..He's not a good stat guy. And I agree with Ben ..none of them are worth picking up.

Ellis being the most tempting....

Ellis was drafted in my 12 team yahoo league and is still held onto if that helps you at all. (luckily I went with Ginobili in the draft)

Uh no.

The actual rumour was that Arenas was ready to return to Warriors during free agency this past summer

Battier not a good stat guy??? I will give you that his roll is a bit more up in the air now that Artest is there and Scola is more comfortable--that said, however, he is still an integral part of this team and someone Adelman wants on the floor a lot. He gets his points off of spot-up 3s, something that Houston needs right now so I woudn't expect any dramatic drop-off in production from him.

He is an under-the-radar type of fantasy option who can significantly help teams. He won't help you win Points, but 5reb, 1st, 1blk, 2 3ptm, and low turnovers (plus FG/FT% neutral since he shoots so little) will help you. Last year I beat a far superior fantasy team in the finals by letting him take points rebounds and assists but beating him in percentages steals blocks and 3ptm.

If you're in a 12-team league Battier should be on someone's team when he's healthy.
