Are you itching to make a trade in your fantasy basketball league? After the draft, it's one of the most exciting parts of the fantasy experience. For those looking to wheel and deal, here are some players to consider trading for, as well as a couple to think about trading away.
Trade For: Ja Morant, Memphis Grizzlies
Coming off of a Rookie-of-the-Year campaign in 2019-20, Morant is one of the most promising young players in the league. However, he's hit a bit of a rough patch of late, shooting 32.1 percent from the field across his last four games. His scoring numbers are down, in general, since his return from an ankle injury, as he's averaging just 15.6 points per game in eight contests. Three-point shooting was not Morant's strong suit as a rookie, and he hasn't shown much improvement in that area this season. Over that eight-game sample, Morant is hitting just 25.9 percent of his 3.4 attempts per game.
With that said, it's only a matter of time before Morant gets back on track in the scoring department. He shot 47.7 percent from the field during his rookie campaign, and even with his recent struggles, he's shooting 46.2 percent overall this season. If there was ever a time to float out an offer for him and attempt to buy low, now might be it.
