Each Wednesday we’ll take a look at the hottest free-agent pick-ups from around the National Basketball Association to help you in setting your upcoming lineup. Some players might have short-term value, while others might be moving up to have some long-term value. We’ll sift through the names so you can make the best choice for your team.

Steve Blake, PG, L.A. Lakers: The Lakers are expected to be without PG Steve Nash (shin) anywhere from seven to 10 days now, so Blake will have some short-term usefulness while he is starting. He doesn’t score a ton, but he will pick up a decent amount of assists and steals while turning the ball over very little. In addition, he has four 3-pointers over his past two games.
