The biggest winner in the real-life trade that sent Rasheed, Shareef and Theo packing? It's really not any of them. It's Nazr Mohammed, who hasn't received a whole lot of playing time this season, but now figures to start at center for the Hawks. Mohammed isn't the same player as Ratliff; only once in his career has he played a full season, and in that year he averaged 9.7 points and eight rebounds. Mohammed should be able to start doing that right away, which makes him somewhat attractive in fantasy leagues. Sure, he's not a shot blocker, has a long history of injuries and is a poor free-throw shooter. But consider he's owned in only 5 percent of ESPN FBA leagues -- and that number is up 4 percent since the trade occurred -- and he's a better option than a number of centers owned in more leagues (Brendan Haywood, Chris Mihm, Chris Kaman and the injured Keon Clark and Raef LaFrentz). As for the players in the trade, it's possible Wallace could see a small spike in his numbers now that he doesn't have to share the frontcourt with Zach Randolph, but who knows where Rasheed's motivation is these days.
