Dewayne Dedmon

Dedmon is about to turn 24, and was seemingly too old to be drafted as a prospect. But a prospect, he is. Last year for USC, he averaged 6.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in only 23 minutes per game. He's old in relation to his level of development, a touch thin, and raw on the ball skills, but is he really any further behind the curve than Saer Sene was?

   Why NBA Teams Sign Players They Don’t Want
2013-10-28

The vast majority of players signed for training camp are signed to contracts without any guaranteed compensation on them.

This, certainly, is no surprise, as it has long been known that most players signed for training camp are not expected to make the team. A few players have fairly nominal guaranteed portions – for example, Dee Bost received $50,000 from Portland, Dewayne Dedmon $25,000 from Golden State, and Trent Lockett $35,000 from Sacramento. Most, however, do not. Teams are not involved in bidding wars for the Trey McKinney-Jones and Carlos Morais types, and thus there is no incentive to give any guaranteed money away.

   These unsigned big men are ready to help (or hurt) your team
2013-12-12

Dwayne Dedmon - Twice signed and waived by the Rockets thus far this season, Dedmon's combination of size, agility and shot blocking instincts will keep him on the radar for many years. Dedmon even has a semblance of a jumpshot, hook shot and ball-handling game, tantalising in one so big. It may however take him many years to develop into a consistent NBA player - right now, he fouls too much to be in any way reliable.

Dewayne Dedmon
C, 7’0, 245lbs, 27 years old, 4 years of experience

Played his way into the starting role, then got put back on the bench come playoff time, even with all the injuries around him. An athletic big in the mould that the team has not had before, Dedmon ran, blocked, caught lobs and rebounded at an extremely good rate. It was not without its fair share of mistakes and missed rotations, and the offensive skill is limited to being that of a finisher around the basket with an occasional jump shot than it is that of a creator in any way. Still, Dedmon brought a set of skills unique to this team and played well within them, so it was odd that he was left out towards the end.

Player Plan: Opted out and enters unrestricted free agency. Would be worthy of a room MLE deal but it is not a glowing endorsement that he fell out of the rotation come season’s end, nor does it make it likely that he will feel too wanted to return, so Dedmon seems likely to leave in free agency. (He should join the Cavs.)

   2014 Summer League Rosters - Orlando
2014-07-04

Dewayne Dedmon - Dedmon signed about thirty five contracts last year and eventually wound up signing with the Magic through 2016. He is a fairly unique player, a prolific rebounder and decent defensive presence in the lane who takes quite a lot of mid-range jumpshots offensively, a factor of the game at which he continues to improve. His frame, mobility and hugely long arms were built to play the NBA pivot position, and Lord knows he can do for years if he can rein in the fouls and mistakes a bit. Dedmon's contract is unguaranteed for both this year and next, but given how Orlando is in the midst of a rebound, they ought stick with Dedmon and see what develops. They will not likely find a better centre prospect elsewhere.

Although rookie reserve John Collins subs in for him and makes a lot more noise, Dedmon is starting at the centre spot for the Hawks and doing a solid job. He is averaging 7.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks per game, while having only five turnovers recorded all season. So much is he enjoying the freedom Atlanta offers him that he has even started shooting threes now.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 5th November 2017
2017-11-05

Both of these two players have featured in this list multiple times before. They are productive, they are good value, and that’s the entire point of what we are doing here. But tonight, it will be extra good for these two. Bad for the team, but good overall. All three of Mike Muscala, Miles Plumlee and Ersan Ilyasova will miss the game, and between those five, that literally is the entirety of the Hawks’ big man depth. There are no others. Luke Babbitt will play some power forward and Prince might be bumped down a spot for a few minutes, but Collins and Dedmon are the only two remaining bigs. They will at least split the 48 centre minutes and will get some power forward time as well. They were already two good picks before. And they really are now.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 3rd November 2017
2017-11-03

A relatively steady presence in an undermanned Hawks frontcourt, Dedmon averages 7.8 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. Only the play of the aforementioned Collins is preventing him from playing more than 24.1 minutes per game. Dedmon will never explode, but he will always contribute, and that’s enough at this price.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 6th November 2017
2017-11-06

Dedmon and Collins were picked in yesterday’s list, due to the fact that injuries to the rest of the roster mandated that they would split all of the centre minutes. This, they did, and both produced: Dedmon scored 15 points with 7 rebounds, while Collins put up 12 points, 13 rebounds, 2 blocks and 1 assist. Notably, however, they did not take most of the power forward minutes. Instead, the hitherto little-used Luke Babbit not only got the start, but also played 41 minutes. Babbitt (who counts as a small forward in fantasy) is a largely one-dimensional jump shooting player, a very poor rebounder who does not handle the ball or post defensive statistics, and it is worth mentioning his 17 points came against the Cleveland Cavaliers, famously poor at defending the perimeter. This won’t happen again. But what might happen again is Babbitt starting, for none of the injured players seem likely to return tonight. He thus is a filthy cheap fantasy starter tonight.

2017-11-18

Dedmon has been featured in this space a few times, having started the entirety of the season and posted some career best averages in doing so. In his last game, he had a career best individual game to boot, recording 20 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks and 56.3 fantasy points in only 23 minutes. This was an outlier performance in a huge blowout victory – nevertheless, Dedmon’s usual fantasy output is already good at this price, and if he has the potential to put up the occasional monster like that, then it gets even better.
