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

Avery Bradley, SG, Boston: Bradley (shoulder) made his season debut Wednesday against the Grizzlies after finally mending from surgery on both shoulders. He hit just two of his six field goal attempts while finishing with four points and one steal in 20 minutes, and he misfired on both of his 3-pointer attempts. While it was an ugly debut from a Fantasy perspective, Bradley is a must-have off the waiver wire. He has the chance at meaningful minutes now that he is back. Not only that, but as he rounds into form, he could be a trading chip for the Celtics. If he lands in another situation with a bigger role, he will definitely be a must-start at that point.

Will Bynum, PG, Detroit: Bynum exploded for 56 total points, 14 assists and seven 3-pointers in a two-game span from Dec. 26-28, but he has since cooled off. Still, Bynum is averaging 19.8 ppg with 5.8 apg and 2.5 rpg over his past four games. Expect him to settle down a little more, but to still see a meaningful role in Detroit’s rotation. Right now, only Fantasy owners in leagues with 12 or more teams will want Bynum on their roster, especially in Rotisserie formats.
