2013 Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire: PF Brandon Bass
The Boston Celtics were gutted this off-season when they sent three of their best players to the Brooklyn Nets. However, the move has left many undervalued fantasy basketball options a chance to shine this year in Beantown.
One of these unproven stars that has been thrust into the starting lineup is PF Brandon Bass. Bass is getting a steady amount of minutes, which is right around 33.5 minutes per game, and the veteran is averaging an impressive 13.3 points.
Most bigs unfortunately shoot around 55-65 % from the free throw line. Bass, however, is shooting a staggering 92.3 % from the charity stripe this season. It may only be three games into the season, but he has shot 83 % from the line throughout his career and has proven to be one of the best shooting bigs in the league.
Bass has also been a very reliable rebounder throughout his tenure in the league, and he is already grabbing 5.5 boards per game. Bass won’t average 20 and 10 this season, but he should easily be able to match Kevin Garnett’s stat line of 14.8 points/7.8 rebounds from last season in Boston.
Bass is available in a good chunk of leagues and can be a valuable pick in any format. He will be in the starting lineup night after night and will be one of the best secondary big men to own this season.
