NBA | Must-Haves | 2/23/17

Aaron Gordon (DK: $4,900, FD: $4,500) It has been an interesting ride on the Magic roster for Gordon. However, it seems like he is finally about to get his chance. Serge Ibaka has been traded to Toronto and Gordon will likely slide back into the PF spot. Our research suggests that this will be to his benefit. Last season, Gordon played about 80% of his minutes at the PF spot…

Nicklas Backstrom (DK: $7,100 FD: $6,700): What a great year Backstrom is having; 61 points (17G, 44A) with 107 shots on net in 58 games played this season.

UNC Basketball

With NBA currently on a break, I decided to take a break from writing about fantasy sports and write an article about UNC basketball. Recently, I engaged in a debate with some classmates about whether or not Isaiah Hicks was all that important to the UNC basketball team.
