Lots of offseason turnover, but still another playoff appearance for the Spurs

Davis Bertans is likely to join the Wizards' starting lineup over rookie Rui Hachimura, according to The Athletic's Fred Katz.
Bertans played a reserve role for the Spurs last season but should initially start for the Wizards. Hachimura was a standout for Gonzaga last season and the Wizards drafted him ninth overall. However, they may look to bring him along slowly while Bertans receives more minutes.

In a Q&A column, Candice Buckner of the Washington Post speculated that the Wizards could field a starting lineup of Isaiah Thomas, Bradley Beal, Davis Bertans, Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant at the beginning of next season.
Bertans comes across as the only player here that would be a bit surprsing to see in the starting lineup, mostly because it would put him out of position. Buckner makes the case that his floor spacing ability would outweigh the defensive limitations that would come from playing him there. From a fantasy perspective, he doesn't provide much aside from 3's and low turnovers, and it would likely take a big boost from his 21.5 minutes per game last season to put him on the radar for standard leagues.

Davis Bertans has been traded to the Wizards as a part of a three team trade between the Spurs, Wizards and Nets.
Bertans was traded so that the Spurs could open up space to sign Marcus Morris and the Wizards aren't contending next season so they lose nothing by acquiring him. He's not much more than a shooter and should still be undrafted next season.

David Bertans put up nine points, three rebounds, one assist and three triples on 3-of-9 shooting in 19 minutes vs. the Mavs on Wednesday.
Bertans attempted nine shots and eight of them were 3-pointers which shows exactly what kind of fantasy player he is. Bertans played 21.5 minutes this season and attempted 4.4 triple per game while knocking them down 43.0 percent of the time. His value was much higher in 9-cat leagues as he was inside the top-170 but when we look at his 8-cat value he barely hangs on to top-200 value. He's unlikely to be drafted to most teams next season but he'll a valuable 3-point guy if he can lock down some consistent minutes.

Davis Bertans scored two points on 1-of-5 shooting with four rebounds and three assists on Monday.
Bertans logged 31 minutes but didn't do anything with them as he went 0-for-2 from deep. If he's going to consistently log minutes in the 30s then he's a standard league guy who can pour in triples with some boards and dimes but that question remains to be answered.

Davis Bertans put up four points with four rebounds on 1-of-4 shooting in a loss to the Knicks on Sunday.
Bertans is primarily a shooting specialist in deeper leagues, but offers late-round appeal in most formats due to his starting role. Rudy Gay did not have the best performance either, with just 10 points and five rebounds on 4-of-10 shooting. Gay has pleasantly put up top-50 value on the season.

Davis Bertans played 27 minutes off the bench and finished Friday’s loss to the Raptors with 16 points, four 3s, three rebounds and a steal.
Bertans has been a standard-league play over the last two months and while his game is roto friendly, he’s also an option for anyone looking to get 3s from a big man. Marco Belinelli added 21 points, five 3s and six rebounds in the defeat.

Davis Bertans was once again efficient on Tuesday in a close win over the Grizzlies, going 5-for-7 from the field, 4-for-4 from deep and 3-for-3 from the line for 17 points.
His supporting stats were predictably lacking (three rebounds and a block), but he's shooting .480/.467/.865. So, while Derrick White is out, he's not a bad start in standard leagues if you need a percentage boost.

Davis Bertans started for Rudy Gay (sprained left ankle) in Saturday's loss to the Jazz and was productive with 11 points on 3-of-7 shooting and a splash of everything else.
Bertans added one rebound, one assist, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block to round out his line for the night. He's a viable glue guy with a stretch four skill set when he gets minutes (33 tonight). Gay's injury is not considered serious so today's little gem was more sparkly as a DFS play than season-long.

Davis Bertans will start for an injured Derrick White (right heel soreness) in Monday's game vs. the Kings.
Bertans offers a stretch four stat set and has been used as a streamer in 9-cat leagues on and off for his contributions in threes, boards and blocks. He's like a very poor man's Brook Lopez.

Davis Bertans started and scored 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting (including five threes) with one rebound, five assists, four steals and one block in the Spurs' 126-124 win over the Suns on Tuesday.
Bertans definitely benefits from DeMar DeRozan's absence as he's a willing shooter but he's more of a top-150 guy under normal circumstances. He can compile his way to greater value but he's still better suited for deeper 14-team formats.

Davis Bertans returned from a two-game absence and led Spurs bench in minutes (28) and scoring with 21 points (8-of-11), adding three rebounds, two dimes and five 3-pointers to the box score in Sunday's win over the Wizards.
The two games he missed were personal in nature and not injury-related. Berans has emerged as a solid stretch four for the Spurs this season, averaging 2.0 3-pointers made on .486 shooting from long range. He's currently suited for 14-team leagues or deeper as a streamer for his treys.
