If your fantasy basketball draft is over, you should already be getting acquainted with the waiver wire. It’s never too early to be aware of who’s out there waiting to be picked up after a huge game.
It’s never too early to speculate on a free-agent pickup to replace that auto-draft pick that you never liked in the first place.
It’s never too early to scoop up Jamal Crawford, Omer Asik or Greivis Vasquez to see if they can follow up their strong opening performances with equally impressive encores.
But it could be too late.
The following eight players are all available in at least half of fantasy basketball leagues on ESPN.com and have potential for staying power this season. They’re ranked not by staying power, but by the chance that they’ll be available in your league.
After all, someone else will pop next week. That’s the nature of fantasy basketball.
