Drew Gooden PF/C WAS 17 Hrs
Drew Gooden kept up his productive ways on Saturday vs. the Bucks with 13 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks.
He did all of this in just 17 minutes of action and he was able to build off a 12-point game on Wednesday. Gooden's minutes haven't really taken off and they're probably not going to at age 32, but he still knows how to get free in the low post and is a nice fit around all the Wizards' 3-point shooters. His last two games came against the Bucks and Jazz, so his potential owners might want to take that into consideration before adding him. Plus, Kevin Seraphin (knee) should be back at some point.
Drew Gooden PF/C WAS 1 Day
The Wizards have signed Drew Gooden to a second 10-day contract, as expected.
The veteran has gained a foothold in the rotation with Nene (MCL) out of commission and Kevin Seraphin (knee) still day-to-day. He scored 12 points in 19 minutes of action on Wednesday, which probably represents his ceiling, so don't give him much thought outside of the deepest leagues.
Drew Gooden PF/C WAS 4 Days
Drew Gooden played a surprising 19 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday, making 6-of-7 from the field for 12 points,
He didn't score at all in his first two games and played just a combined 13 minutes. Gooden was making some nifty cuts and was able to get easy buckets against the leaky Jazz defense, which is not an adept area of Trevor Booker's game. He was a headache to own two seasons ago, so it would take a special kind of crazy to add him in even the deepest of leagues.

The Wizards are "likely" to sign Drew Gooden to a 10-day deal.
The loss of Nene (knee) for the next 4-6 weeks will make the Wizards very thin up front. Trevor Booker has quite a few injuries on his medical chart and Kevin Seraphin's progress has plateaued the past two season, so the move makes sense. Obviously Gooden is only worth a look in extremely deep leagues for now.

The Knicks have reportedly expressed interest in FA big men Lou Amundson, Drew Gooden, Ivan Johnson and Tyrus Thomas.
The Knicks roster is at 14 players, and the team is looking to add one more frontcourt player. Regardless of who is signed, playing time will be limited and fantasy value will be minimal.

Drew Gooden cleared waivers on Friday, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Gooden signed a five-year, $32 million deal in 2010 which quickly became an anchor for the Bucks. He appeared in a total of 108 games between 2011-2013, and spent most of last season as a healthy DNP-CD on the Bucks' bench. It's conceivable that he'll land a minimum contract to add frontcourt depth for a team, but he's not a fantasy option.

Bucks waive F/C Drew Gooden using the amnesty clause.
Like most amnesty waives, this one's not too surprising. Gooden's nearing the end of his career and while he's likely still capable of being a solid contributor to an NBA team, his fantasy value is nonexistent. Larry Sanders and John Henson will handle most of the big-man minutes for the Bucks this season and both will be popular fantasy picks. Sanders had his breakout season last year, while Henson's should be right around the corner.

Drew Gooden, who has quietly returned to the Bucks' rotation, finished Saturday's game with five points, four rebounds and one steal in 13 minutes.
Gooden racked up unlimited DNP-CDs until just this week, when (probably due to injuries) Scott Skiles began giving him custodial minutes at the end of the rotation. He has no fantasy appeal.

The Bucks are "trying to move" Drew Gooden in a trade, according to beat writer Gery Woelfel.
Good luck with that. Gooden is owed about $20 million total through the 2014-15 season and hasn't played in a game all season. The Bucks would likely have to take another bad contract (or two) in return to get any other team to even be interested in the veteran big man.
