Podcast: Buyouts Swaying the Playoff Race

March 7, 2016

The fantasy basketball regular season is already in its final week, but there are plenty of players available to make your team into a contender.

Several big name players have changed teams — via a contract buy out after the NBA trade deadline — and their increased roles on a new roster provide an unexpected benefit to fantasy basketball owners.

After struggling in his fourth season with the Nets, Johnson had his contract bought out, enabling him to sign with Miami as a free agent.

The move to the Heat sparked his shooting numbers, as his field goal percentage has increased by 20 percent and he has knocked down 8-of-12 attempts from 3-point range during his first five games with his new team.

Several players had their contracts bought out following the trade deadline, infusing the fantasy basketball pool with revitalized performers for the final week of the regular season.

In our latest podcast, we breakdown an unexpected loss by the Warriors in Los Angeles, recap a first time experience at a Rockets basketball game and much more.
