Hardwood Parxoysm: Haberstroh: Beating the Market

Tom Haberstroh uses WARP2 to determine the 20 best bargains in the NBA last season. Josh Smith was the 7th-best and Al Horford was the 16th-best bargain in the league.

In what-might-have-been news: Brandon Roy, despite missing 17 games last season, was still the 13th-best bargain while playing on the fourth year of his rookie contract. Shelden Williams does not appear on the list.

The Shelden Williams over Brandon Roy draft, in my mind, is a greater sin than the Marvin Williams/Chris Paul draft.

At least Marvin was a consensus top 3 pick. Shelden wasn't even on the Top 20 radar screen until word leaked out Billy Knight had promised to pick him.
