Isaiah Canaan is Worth an Add in Fantasy Basketball

The NBA Trade Deadline ended with a bang, but one player who will not be talked much about is Isaiah Canaan.  He was dealt to the Philadelphia 76ers, who just traded their starting PG Michael Carter-Williams to the Bucks, who traded their starting PG Brandon Knight to the Suns, who traded two of their guards Goran Dragic (Heat) and Isaiah Thomas (Celtics).

Canaan is the most likely available PG out of all the ones who were traded today.  Tony Wroten and Robert Covington will steal lead the team in scoring, but unless the Sixers re-sign Tim Frazier, Canaan is going to get a chance to run the offense.  In 9 starts this year for the Houston Rockets, Canaan averaged 12.9 points per game, playing alongside James Harden.
