   2017 NBA Manifesto

Mason Plumlee
C, 6’11, 245lbs, 27 years old, 4 years of experience

Plumlee’s production, hitherto high in Portland amidst something of a breakout season (particularly in the assists column), tapered off after his arrival to Denver, where Jokic took shares of both his minutes and the ball. Nevertheless, Plumlee was still productive, a strong rebounder and capable finisher who tries hard defensively around the rim without the greatest natural quickness. If kept around - which is far from certain - Plumlee could be one of the league’s best backup centres. Limiting his minutes in this way however would make the trade to acquire him not one of particularly good value.

Player Plan: Entering restricted free agency. There are a couple of teams who will have significant money to spend this summer who are in the market for a starting centre, who might come after him. But even though the team’s salary picture is so clear that a big salary for Plumlee can be afforded, be careful; he projects only as a backup for the team, would lose trade value if overpaid, and the money will need to be spent elsewhere in the near future.

Mason Plumlee

Plumlee has the offensive skill that his brother Miles doesn't. That's not to say he's a hugely polished offensive player, but he's better. Plumlee has rescued his free throw percentage from terrible to average, hits a few mid range jumpers, and has a hook shot and a reasonable handle. He'll run the floor, has all the athleticism of a true Plumlee, and has a good rebounding rate. However, Plumlee can be a little clumsy, soft and mistake prone, moreso than you'd like from a four year college grad. But the height, athleticism, and decent skill level show good potential.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 4th December 2017

Similarly, Mason’s brother Miles is suddenly in fantasy contention due to injuries ahead of him. With all of Dewayne Dedmon, John Collins and Mike Muscala out with injury, Plumlee – who had only played two games all year himself until this point due to his own injuries but also through simply not being needed – responded with a very energetic and effective game at both ends. Playing a shade under 20 minutes, Plumlee put up 6 points, 7 rebounds, 3 blocks and 3 assists versus Brooklyn, good for 23.4 fantasy points. Despite the wide variance in his role throughout his career, Plumlee generally responds with rebounds and post defence whenever he is given significant minutes for a stretch of games. He may now be about to be.
