We’re finally back with the Razzball Pod, and have so many monstrous trades right at the deadline to cover!  Everyone was on pins and needles waiting to see where Roy Hibbert would end up!  On today’s show, we break down the trades from around the deadline, including the bigger and better trades made well before the clock struck 3:00… We then preview tonight’s games making our 30-point challenge picks (for Friday night), and briefly wrap up the week at the movies.

    I’m punting ft% but I’m a little light on 3s.

    Trade my Drummond for his ibaka and favors?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @E: It’s a decent deal, but I dunno if Ibaka’s 3s will be that much of a boost.. That said, I kinda like Favors to improve and I like the value, but would still look for more 3s

          @E: Even though you’re punting FT, you could use the smidge of added depth, yeah I like that deal and like those adds!

    JB what it is! Happy post trade deadline day!

    Downloading pod now but wanted to ask first…

    Team’s been chugging along nicely thanks in large part to you and Slim but then Love went and had to get a knee op! Bad timing!

    So, how would you rank Noel, Capella, and Saric going forward? We count DD as well. Does Saric stay hot? I’ve got Gobert and Adams already so Saric kinda makes sense positionally but CC and NN are both tempting….

    Thanks JB!

      JB Gilpin says:

      @JakeTPE: What it do?! Haha yeah still sifting through the wreckage, but feel pretty good on it now!

      Yup lost Love in REL too, a week after trading for him! Ugh. Definitely Noel #1. On the fence with Capela and Saric, Saric should still get big minutes. Might go him

      • JakeTPE says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Love hurts, man. All you can say really. :’-(

        Thanks for incredibly swift reply! Will give Noel a shot to see how he gets on in Big D. Still have a couple weeks till playoffs to figure it out.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @JakeTPE: Haha that it does! Yup we’ll get some time to feel these guys out, but I don’t see how Noel isn’t a fantastic fit there

  3. Bye Felica says:
    (link)

    That Noel trade is driving me crazy! I don’t know who’s run worse Sac or Philly. They got ripped on that deal!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bye Felica: Hah yeah the Sixers didn’t get a ton, but I guess cut their losses since no one would take OKafor… Slim kinda sold me that they must really like Anderson…

  4. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Pts league, Portis or Ghostface?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: Def Portis, gonna play a lot more mins.

  5. miles proudfoot says:
    (link)

    Thanks for the breakdowns on trades! Thad Young looks to still be injured. In a shallow league drop him for Nurkic? He may get claimed if I drop him, liked the steals, but it’s a pretty good wire.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: Yeah Nurk looked great last night, I’d make that swap

  6. Michael says:
    (link)

    My PF-C position just got a whole lot better

    Picked up Willie Cauley-Stein
    now I have: Noel, Cauley-Stein, Cody Zeller, Tyson Chandler, Randolph

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Michael: Man, yeah without WCS and Noel, it would be horrific! WCS looked awesome last night!

  7. TheMuppetManiac says:
    (link)

    John Wall for 30!

    I have Taj Gibson. I’m in a 12 team, but rosters are a bit bigger than a standard 12, so it might be closer to 14, so free agents are pretty thin. Would you drop Gibson for Nance Jr. or Chriss?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TheMuppetManiac: Yeah I think Taj is gonna struggle with consistency. I would add either, Nance if needing steals, Chriss as more an all around flier type

  8. Nukna says:
    (link)

    Yo, JB and Slim, razzup!?
    Gotta choose 3 from this big men bunch: T.Chandler, Pau, Kanter, Nurk, Frye, Kidd-Gilchrist (nominally a 3, but provides big man stats).
    Would it be an easy choice for you? How would you rank them?
    Thanks!
    Regards from Belgrade!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nukna: Razzup man?! I’d straight rank them Pau, Nurk, MKG, and I think those 3 are a tier above the rest, so at least one is a 3 that provides big man stats! Good to see ya!

      • Nukna says:
        (link)

        Thanks, man! Got one more variable. Would Gorgui squeeze into the top3 and kick one of these out? I did not consider losing him, but when I think again, he might not be a firm hold.
        Thanks

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Nukna: Yeah he would be in the top 3 of those for sure. I know he’s low upside and hasn’t been “great”, but low TO, good %s, gets a steal and a block still… Would be maybe 2nd behind Pau

          • Nukna says:
            (link)

            Just what I wanted to hear.
            Thanks, man, helpful as always.

    Ever Since the Switch Boogie, I’d been waiting for your article regarding trades. Tjones has been waived, I own him. What teams do you think is a good landing spot for him. I have no idea what to do with him atm.

    Also, Im planning to drop Juancho since no trade happen in denver, this are the one’s left in the wire. Barea, Nicholson, Solomon Hill, KJ?? and Dudley. Need overall Value thanks

    18 teams 9 cat H2H Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TheBeardedOne: Whew, 18er is rough… Yeah i think I would lose both Jones and Juancho for Nicholson and Hill. Obviously you’re dropping soooooo much more upside, but I doubt Jones finds a team to give him big minutes

  10. Niko-Cola Kevin says:

    Let’s go Jimmy Buckets for 30.

  11. Shahed says:
    (link)

    Hey JB,

    So glad NBA is back. Got a question, 12 team, standard 9 Cat, H2H.

    G: Lillard, Wall, Middleton, Nelson, RJax
    F: Griffin, James Johnson, AD
    C: Jordan, Howard, Capela, Zubac, Plumlee
    IL: Hood

    Need to drop Plumlee, but wanted to wait for the dust to settle. Who should I pick up.
    Options: Saric, McConnell, Hernangomez, Kaminsky, Seth, Barton, Nance, Portis, Payne, Ish, Tyreke, Ross.
    I just listed everyone, Ha.

    Thanks, and give me Butler for 30 points. Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Shahed: Me too man! Whew, lots of good options. Which hernangomez is that on your wire, Willy or Juancho? Rebounds aren’t really a need, but kinda like Saric tbh… Scoring would help. Portis intrigues me but isn’t really a need, and def like Payne but you don’t really need a PG… I think it’s Saric

      • Shahed says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: It’s Wille, I wasn’t sure I needed the rebounds with AD, Howard and Jordan, I’ll go Saric. Thanks.
        What about RJax, he is so up and down, and Hood, you think he’ll finish the season strong? Make any changes with those guys?
        I got Lillard by trading away Hayward and Wilson Chandler, I think it really helped me. I then picked up Middleton at the start of the month, he will be awsome right?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Shahed: Yeah agree, I think Saric has the scoring upside which works. Might as well keep holding Hood in IL, but he’s kinda blah since you have a strong roster. I still gotta think they’ll eventually get RJax going as a 30 mpg starter again, but damn last night was not a good sign.

          Nice deal for that Lillard one! And yeah, middleton looked great to me thus far, I think he’ll be solid at around a top-50 range

          • Shahed says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Just getting around to listening to the pod, why Slim hating on WCS.

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @Shahed: Dunno man… Slim be cray! Not great last game, but still got blocks. Just got him in REL, pumped!

  12. Connor says:
    (link)

    I’ll follow Slim’s lead and go with Wiggins! Boo JB!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Heyyyyy, that’s f’in rude! Haha

  13. your mom says:
    (link)

    Hi. 9cat roto. Westy/kcp better than kat/nelson ROS? Thanks

    • Shahed says:
      (link)

      @your mom: Mom is that you?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @your mom: @Shahed: Haha, well in Roto, depending on how many points you stand to drop in TO and FG%, I would likely rather have KAT. But if those two cats aren’t gonna plummet too much, def good getting Westbrook

  14. Ryan says:
    (link)

    Should i drop pj tucker, if so do i take t. Ross in orlanfo, avery bradley, or tj warren

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: Whoa, definitely taking Bradley. I know he’s been hurt a while, but things seem to be improving and he might be close

  15. Mad Beach Bums says:
    (link)

    Portis, zubac, okafor, Payne on the wire would you drop McConnell or Lin or ish or James johnson for any of these guys? I’m currently in a playoff spot but let’s say I could use help in any cats. 9 cat h2h league.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mad Beach Bums: Would hold Johnson. Def wanna add Portis and Payne, would lose McConnell for sure. On fence with Lin and Ish, I think I would add Portis since he’s the more added guy right now, and wait and see one game from lin and Ish and possibly change to Payne

  16. Funk Master says:
    (link)

    JB,

    Who would you rather have as a keeper? Embiid or Myles Turner? Given Embiid’s injury history, I am leaning toward Turner, but if both were completely healthy, I think Embiid is the better fantasy player. What you think?

    H2H, 9 cats

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Funk Master: Well, the TO are a big difference between the two… I think I would go Turner too, but it is really close.

  17. Sheikh says:
    (link)

    Yo JB,

    In a 12 team, standard 9 cat, ROTO league, would you trade away Wall and Teague, for Giannis? I could use the help at SF, gotta a lot of Guards.

    My Roster:
    G: Wall, McCollum, Conley, Teague, Waiters
    F: Hayward, DeMarre Carroll, Taj Gibson
    C: AD, Howard, Jordan, Kaminsky, Zubac
    IL: Thad Young

    FG-10, FT-4, 3PTS-9, PTS-12, REB-11, AST-12, ST-12, BLK-11, TO-1

    Thanks,

      @Rahman: Sorry about that! Yeah if you change your commenter name, it will go in moderation, you have to use the same name/email every time.

      If you stick with this one or Sheikh it will go staight through 🙂

      I’m not sure where that really helps you… Helps cut down TO a little bit maybe… Maybe try to throw in Howard and get another low TO, 3ptm guy and I would be down

  19. The Gintern says:
    (link)

    Man, lots of good options tonight! I’ll go PG for 30 to mix it up, probably jinxing myself by straying from Jimmy…

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Gintern: Paul George has gotten me a coveted point a few times!

  20. Irk No D Nowitzki says:

    I’ll go jokic for 30 since he should be rested from yesterday’s big bench game!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Irk No D Nowitzki: Ugh he’s in a crazy funk all the sudden./ Can’t believe Plumlee is working there

  21. ThE sHiT says:

    I got Hayward for 30

  22. Justin says:

    9 cat h2h. 8 person league. Gorgui or nurkic.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Justin: Mannnnnn Nurk looked good. I’ll still lean Gorgui but I do think both should be owned

  23. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    Glad to have stuck with Zubac instead of Parsons! Was watching the kid against Adams and he truly held his own. He’s looking damn huge out there! And the minutes were there too–11/6/1/13 in 27 playing minutes. Hah Though I’m not in the best of shape right now bcos my team is 1.5 games behind the final playoff spot. I’m about to win my match but if the two teams above me come out with a win it’d then be harder for me to make the playoffs. Hah I didn’t drop my matches prior to the ASB, it’s just that my team has gone cold from the 3 point line so instead of winning 7 or 6 cats, I only won 5 so this one particular team caught up to me! What a bummer. There’s still two matches left and luck is going to play a huge role in my hopes of making the playoffs. Teams 5 and 6 just need to lose then I’m off to post-season. By the way, Hernangomez Chriss and WCS are all playing well, too, so far. Hah

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: Yeah man, I always liked Zubac as you know! He did look great that game, I watched some of that one. Glad all the big men I’ve been pushing for are working out!

  24. Connor says:
    (link)

    Tj Warren or Thad Young ROS? Thanks man!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Man Thad was bad last game… I’ll lean Thad still, but very close. Obviously if scoring is more a need, would go Warren. Any time!

  25. Connor says:
    (link)

    Recently I’ve been trying to make 2 for 1s or 3 for 2s to consolidate talent because I love having that streaming spot. 12 team 10 cat league with FT made. Any advice for this team? Thanks man, I appreciate it.
    G- Harden, Klay, Kemba, Batum, Cam Payne, Buddy Hield
    F- Draymond, Jokic, TJ Warren
    C- Nurkic, Deandre Jordan, Myles Turner

    Probably looking at adding Yogi if he’s still available on Sunday, other names available are Ingram, Parsons. I was thinking of just streaming that last spot

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Right there with ya, that’s the way to go! Your out of position dimes are out of control, so I think like Batum is kinda expendable. TO is pretty much a punt and you have good 3s. Batum + Klay for a more TO prone higher end guy? Maybe Paul George?

  26. Nick says:
    (link)

    Trade the 3rd or 4th overall draft pick in next years rookie draft for Covington in a win now situation? Robcov’s been top 30 the past while here. 8 Cat Dynasty

    Or trade LaVine + Drop Zeller or W. Chandler?

    Or do nothing, haha.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Dynasty I would prob hold LaVine. 3rd or 4th overall is too steep. Would they take a 2nd and 3rd rounder? Just too much front-end talent for this summer’s draft

  27. Game of Zones says:
    (link)

    Frye or Chriss rest of the season, 12 team 9 catg standard h2h.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Game of Zones: Definitely taking Chriss, looking liek Suns are full-embracing youth now

  28. Tyler says:
    (link)

    Should I drop Yogi or AGordon for a streamer?

    Thinking of picking up one of the ff: Harkless, Mirotic, Aminu, McConnell, Len, Alan Williams, Holmes, Frye, TRoss, Kaminsky, Chriss

    10team punt PTS/FT%

    G-Holiday,JLin,Bev,Yogi,GaryHarris
    F-LBJ,Ariza,Covington,Middleton,AGordon
    C-Whiteside,Deandre,Gobert

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: Hmmm, lots of options… Gordon really fits the build I would prob hold there. Def need some 3s, I like Miro, Ross and Kaminsky a lot, surprised Kaminsky is avail. I’d probably get him while this hot

      • Tyler says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Magic’s playoff schedule is really bad though with 2games first 2 weeks. You think it’s better to have AGordon’s 3games than 4games from Harkless or Mirotic?

        • Tyler says:
          (link)

          @Tyler: @Tyler: I meant to say magic goes 3-3-4 for playoffs

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Tyler: Thats a good point on the playoff sched. I don’t really have those committed to memory 🙂 Harkless is one Evan Turner away from losing the high minutes. Miro has just been so inconsistent… Yeah still leaning Gordon who could keep getting better (that’s the hope), but yeah it’s close
