Perhaps you aren't thrilled with your 2012 fantasy basketball draft. Maybe you drafted Dirk Nowitzki forgetting about his recent knee surgery, took a flyer on Derrick Rose in hopes he comes back 100 percent or just plain got unlucky by drafting Brandon Rush. But there is hope for fantasy basketball fans, because there are some interesting players available on the market if you move quickly.
After one week of the 2012-13 season, you probably don't have the best idea of your team's strengths and weaknesses. If, however, your team has been bitten by the injury bug or just plain needs more of a spark, there are some patch jobs and even full-time replacements you can find in free agency.
Whether you need three-point shooting, rebounding, steals, blocks or simply need to score more points, there's a player on this list for you and your fantasy squad.
(Note: "Hot" pickups will be determined mostly by transaction trends in ESPN fantasy basketball leagues).
