Wow, we certainly got polar opposite trade deadlines the past two years!

With shocking move after shocking move around 3:00 PM last year, 2016 was a nice afternoon siesta, putting the “dead” in Trade Deadline.  This is why it’s impossible to predict trades!  I might use this year’s deadline as a response to “who is most likely to be traded” quandaries.  Is there a shrug emoticon?!  Because in 2016, every NBA GM was too busy playing Candy Crush to make phone calls to other teams!

Really the biggest trade had very little fantasy impact too…  Markieff Morris comes to the Wizards, and just like Archie Goodwin‘s neck, he puts a stranglehold on the PF position.  Watch me whip!  Watch me Nene!  …watch me never play again 🙁  Even though Nene started last night over Jared Dudley (and had a decent game too), I think that’s more about having him be a placeholder to get ready for the new Wiz rotation once Kieff gets there.  I just think Wizards fans should be happy Gilbert Arenas isn’t still there, that locker room might get fiestier than in Memphis!  We’ll get to that later…  Kieff should’ve been owned in all leagues already, and you can happily drop Dudley in almost all leagues.  That was my first text to Slim!  Pssshhh, Slim arguing to hold Dudley…  On the flip side, Phoenix got trash and roster dumpage, with Kris Humphries mayyyyybe playing some backups kims.  I mean mins.  The big takeaway is Alex Len should be nabbed in all 12ers, and when the news broke, he was owned in only 30% of leagues (and still is at 30% apparently)…  He should get a nice boost in consistency, minutes wise.  Here’s what else went down over this snoozer of a deadline, plus the Daily Notes from last night:

Courtney Lee This happened on Wednesday, but got moved to the Hornets for a lot of junk.  As I mentioned on the Pod, he moves to a faster paced offense that could use a nice SG to move Nicolas Batum back to his more natural 3 spot.  They’ve already said he’ll start, but is out tonight since he had to get his physical during practice.  Geez, what is it with medical staffs these days?!  Get his physical done ASAP and let him play!

Detroit Pistons – Picked up Donatas Motiejunas and Marcus Thornton for a lot of junk from the Rockets.  I’m not even gonna use a Thesaurus for “junk”, I’m just gonna keep using it!  A ton of junk this deadline…  Neither are worth cosidering in virtually any league, especially with “starters-play-a-ton-of-minutes StanVan” at the helm.  Helm to 108!

MORE JUNK – Cleveland and Orlando traded guys, just to waive most of them.  Uggghhhhhh!  I remember slamming that Channing Frye deal with Slim when it was made.  Looks like we would be better GMs for Orlando…  Anyway, Frye will play some backup stretch-4 on CLE.  Hurray.

Shelvin Mack This might be the most interesting trade of the day for me, which says more about the deadline itself than anything else…  The Hawks gave the Jazz Mack for a mere second-rounder, and Utah picks up the best point guard they have right now.  Neto slam!  Burke slam!  Now, it’s not like Mack is someone you’re adding in 12ers, but any deeper leagues needing a PG flier, Mack could be your starter and play a good chunk of minutes.  That said, it’ll take a few games, and Alec Burks looms to take G minutes as well.

Randy Foye – Heads to OKC to add some perimeter scoring with the second unit.  Bleck.  Going to Denver, some junk and D.J. Augustin.  Augustin for the super deep leagues is a little interesting, with Jameer Nelson weighing wrist surgery and the ups and downs of Emmanuel Mudiay.

Memphis Grizzlies being CRAYYYYY! – So just to spice things up now that Marc Gasol is out for the year, Memphis decided to go nuts.  They added Birdman to play some C.  In that junk trade for C Lee, they added P.J. “thrown out of the NCAA” Hairston.  Then to pair with Matt “I don’t find the term Eskimo Brothers funny at all” Barnes at the wing, they add Lance “worst contract ever” Stephenson.  I could see this ending like the elevator lobby scene in The Departed.

Jeff Green Moves to the Clippers, giving them a little more depth at PF.  It’s overall a sizable hit on consistency though, as he will split some run with Paul Pierce.  The Truth is I’ve never bought into Green anyway since burning me that year he was supposed to break out on the Celtics…

Brian Roberts – Got traded twice in two days, ending up on the Heat to play some marginal backup PG minutes.  Yawn.  Actually ended up in Portland…  Did he get traded a third time?!  I think I just messed up his timeline.  Stupid Brian Roberts!  Well with the Blazers, he fills a huge G depth need, and if Portland falls out of the race and Damian Lillard‘s plantar fascia flares up again, he could get some late starts.  Super deep league depth only.

Jarnell Stokes – Heat traded him to the Pelicans.  Gut reaction, “he’s still in the NBA?!”

Kirk Hinrich – Traded to Hotlanta.  So much for team loyalty!  Although I have no idea why the Bulls held onto him so long anyway…  He looks like a rabbit.  Bulls in turn get Justin Holiday, Slim’s ex-boyfriend.

Yikes, pretty sure that’s each and every trade.  More cowbell!  At least we got some NBA action again…  Finally!  Here’s what went down last night:

John Wall Boooooo, couldn’t score 30 last night!  The Wiz waltzed to a win against the Jazz in that make-up game from the blizzard cancellation like a month ago, in the start of a back-to-back-to-back.  Yet they get a roster makeover during it!

Bradley Beal Came off the bench and scored 16 in 24 minutes.  I’m just happy they’re scaling down the run during this heavy 3-day stretch!

Marcin Gortat When you think of a matchup against the Jazz, you don’t normally expect the Ten Foot Pole being the defensive-stat monger!  22/10/0/2/5, getting as many blocks as Utah did combined.

Rudy Gobert 16/12/2/1/1, scoring in double-digits in 8 straight.  Of course we want the sexier 6 or 7 blocks, but Monsieur Elbow is still bringing some goods!

Derrick Favors Foul trouble and butterfingers limited his night, going 11/5/1/0/2 with 4 fouls and 4 TO in only 22 minutes.  Hey, let’s just hope he spent this break getting a new bed for his back issues!  Change that Tempur-Pedic setting to 11!

Derrick Rose Came out strong when virtually the rest of the Bulls looked injured.  Oxymoronic!  28/7/2/1/0 with a couple of treys shooting 11-19.

Bobby Portis 26 minutes off the bench, and second most shots for Chicago.  13/10/1/0/0 with 2 TO and 4 fouls.  Not exactly a shimmering performance, and he still looks to have a little too much “aggressive-rawness” (aka crazy eyes!) but I think he’s still worth adding in 12ers even with no Pau Gasol trade and Taj Gibson ending up not missing time.

LeBron James Came out of the break strong with a tripdub flirt.  Abusing that Mike Dunleavy defense!

Kevin Love Ends up not traded, which probably sucks for fantasy owners.  15/15/2/0/1 is fine and all, but still only 29:31 mins and 10 shots.

Tristan Thompson In a rare multi-cat effort, 16/10/0/3/2, shooting 8-10 from the floor.  Who’s letting TT get his 4th-6th career steals like that?!

Kawhi Leonard Ahhhhhhh!  To the frustration of his owners – i.e. me in the REL – sits last night due to a “sore calf”.  Hey buddy, why’d you play in that epicly meaningless All-Star Game then?!  Sounds more like a rest for the b2b.  Poop!  I mean Pop! Pop is poop!

Rest of the Spurs – Yawwwnnnnn!  Played like a metaphor for the trade deadline.  Tony Parker “led” all scorers with a measly 14, no one had over 6 REB, 4 AST, 2 STL or 1 BLK.

Chris Paul One of several guys to attent Monty Williams’ wife’s funeral, had a big outpouring in the second half going 28/5/12.  Abusing that Tony Parker defense!

Jamal Crawford 19 Pts with 6 Ast, but 7 TO?!?!?!  Felt like me playing basketball this morning, I got called for two travels!  Both were so iffy, but I don’t care enough to yell at people.  I need to embody Joakim Noah yelling at the refs!

 

Thanks everyone for dropping by, and let’s get pumped for the second half of the season!  Which is more like the final 1/3 of the season, but ya know…  Have a great weekend, Razzball Nation!

    Not that it matters, but Brian Roberts ended up in Portland lol. May actually get some run there if anyone in that back-court gets injured. Not much depth behind Lillard and McCollum

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Adam: Oh I thought Portland was the middle one… Psshhh thanks for the catch though, and yeah that is different

  2. Jake says:
    (link)

    Len over B. Wright? I know we will have to wait to see Wrights minutes tonight but I’m not sold on Len yet. I don’t see him getting many PF minutes even though I know he has.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jake: Yeah definitely going Len. While I don’t think Len at PF is a long term solution, Phoenix can mess around with it, and even if not playing huge chunks at the starting 4, I bet he out-minuteses (spelling?! haha) Wright

    These NBA trade rumors always get wayyyyy out of hand. I never believe them when big names are discussed.
    So in my keeper, keep 3 I have brow and goose as 2 and was just offered Blake and batum for Drummond and parsons. Do I do it and keep Blake as my 3rd? 9 cat h2h with ft% so yes Drummond has killed me there. I just wonder if an impending hack a rule change helps Drummond. Also thanks for setting up that baseball rel. I’m the Angels and look forward to fake fixing that broken farm.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @MJC: Yeah for sure, last year was def interesting though!

      I still dunno if they can ever put in the hack rule to full effect, it would have sooooo many loopholes. I’d be really frustrated if it got implemented. I think you take the deal if you’re not a very strong contender right now.

      Oh sweet, I’m really looking forward to it! But yeah, that farm system is roughhhh

      • MJC says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:
        Ya I’m not contending. So I’ll probly take the deal.
        I’m in tenth and that gets me the 4th pick as we do the draft order starting from 7-12 then the 6 playoff teams from 6-1, to prevent tanking.
        I stay optimistic in MLB, I just picked the Angels cuz they’re close to SD but then read about that brutal farm and cried. But 2 good drafts, a surprise prospect or 2 turns out good and the San Diego Angels are replenished with strapping young mensies to go around Trout!
        Thanks for your advice I’ll probly do the deal

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @MJC: Oh cool, yeah I like preventative anti-tanking rules like that. Sounds like a good deal for ya!

          Well just look at my Brewers! Close to last in minors like 2-3 years ago, and now ranking first in some lists. Sure it took a tear down to get it that good, but still, was a nice turnaround

    Hey, DO you think Evan turner will maintain his current production, I need the assists, I’d like to trade my RoLO for him. I got Bogut and WCS on my Weekly bench, that I could plug in. And could finally drop shane larkin, who I don’t know if He’ll ever someone around…THanks for any advice

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @james: Yeah Turner is fitting really well right now, I’m totally good with that move. Ummm, in weekly, I might be more apt to drop WCS to stash Larkin, since he could become the starter later on and it’s not hurting your numbers stashing him

      • James says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks!!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @James: Any time!

    My reservations about losing Dudley was all before Markieff was traded there… I could give you 3 guesses who is leading both of my Dudley teams in blocks this week but you should only need 1.

    • James says:
      (link)

      @Slim:
      I only start 10 guys in my weekly 14 team league, so you’re saying dudley IS droppable now, right

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Slim: @James: Psshhh that sounds more like a personal problem in BLK! Yeah James, Dudley can def go

  6. Pavel says:
    (link)

    My dude, I got a really enticing offer in my Dynasty League. Here is my squad as it stands:

    Pg: Cp3, DRose, Lavine, Dragic, Chalmers, Mack
    Sg: Kobe, Lou WIll, Wes Mathews
    Sf: Durant, Joe Johnson, Casspi, Mirotic
    Pf: BGriffin, Bosh
    C: Blopez, Meyers Leonard

    I’ve been weak at the rebs stats (and i decided to punt blocks altogether), so would you do a trade where I give:
    Durant+Mack
    I get:
    Harden+Tristan Thompson,

    considering this is a Dynastly league where we keep 12 each offseason and considering if I just punt big man stats and dominate in 3’s, assists, and points…what would you do? Or try to trade a guy like durant for something else?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Pavel: Yo! Hmmmm, that’s close. Def fits helping REB with low BLK next to Blake, I think I like that one. I might also look to move Brook Lopez to fit the strategy.

  7. Hey Vee says:
    (link)

    How do you feel about ditching Jokic, Lord Covington, or Rodney Hood for Len? I also have Big Al coming off my IR as soon as this weekend so I’m gonna need another spot for him… Those 3 listed are the guys that I feel are potentially droppable. Thanks man!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hey Vee: Ugh, Len not playing outta nowhere last night! I think Jokic is your first drop, and prob activating Jefferson and leaving Len out

  8. sliimbo says:
    (link)

    now that the trade deadline has passed…which moves should i make?

    drop schroder or even turner fpr Len, Sullinger, Nurkic, Barnes or Cole

    thanks!

      @sliimbo:

      whatever you do just know by sunday night you’ll be saying the butler did it to me!

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @sliimbo: @sam: Haha, ummmm, probably Sullinger if you need a big. If you don’t need a big too bad, I would just hold Schroder

        • Threekola says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin:

          YESSSS JB the hell with Roto, all aboard the Schroder hype train!

            @Threekola: Haha I’m on it for sure!

  9. John says:
    (link)

    Two deals I am pursing but would like your opinion as always first!

    My Butler for his Gay. Like points, not sure I need his Rebs.

    My Butler and Danny Green for his Dragic and Reddick. Like threes and assists.

    My team: DeAndre, Gortat, Hassan, Okafor
    Ariza, Crowder, E. Turner, Deng, Green
    Paul, Wall, Payton, Cole, Moore (stream)

    • Threekola says:

      @John:

      Am I reading this right? haha

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @John: @Threekola: With Butler this hurt, I’m def doing both. I like the Gay one a ton more though!

  10. Case says:
    (link)

    recently joined a 20-man h2h league (keeper), all 9-cat’s. made a couple moves already, but i’m trying to develop a core since i’m not really in contention. my gut feeling is to develop around Reggie Jackson, Devin Booker, Markieff Morris and Greek Freak. but should I trade away Monta Ellis? Jamaal Crawford? PJ Tucker? and how low should I expect for Dwight howard?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Case: Def like your core, I think maybe Kieff could be moved if he looks really good with the Wiz as a sell high, and yeah all of those other guys are great guys to move for youth. So you own Howard? I would still try to get something decent, but I’m really low on him

  11. LOLER says:
    (link)

    Who to drop for Al Jefe?

    JR Smith
    Tyson Chandler
    Myles Turner
    Jusuf Nurkic
    Lou Williams

    Thanks! 🙂

    • sam says:
      (link)

      @LOLER:

      no one.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @LOLER: @sam: Really? I’m def good losing Nurk or Tyson

  12. jonny says:
    (link)

    Is it time to drop tjones with dwight not being moved? I’m in a h2h league with only 12 more waiver pick ups for the season. Should I drop for any of these guys:

    leuer, grant, harkless, larkin, hezonja

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jonny: Yup., I’d move on. Probably getting Jerami Grant, especially if blocks help ya

  13. Aladeen says:
    (link)

    I want to dump Taj since he’s not contributing a whole lot…

    Would you rather own any of these over him?

    Nurkic, Portis, Mahinmi, Winslow

    • Aladeen says:
      (link)

      Add Mcbob into the mix.

      I’m leaning towards Mahinmi, but I also want to take a flier on Mcbob…

      My other droppables are Marvin Williams, Goodwin, Markieff, Jennings (who i just picked up)

      Thanks in advance!

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Aladeen: Yeah I’m not a huge Taj guy either… And yeah, I’d rather own any of those first 3 I think. Maybe not Mahinmi, but he looked goooood last night. Nah, I wouldn’t McBob. I think I would drop Taj and Jennings and nab Mahinmi and Nurkic or Portis, and damn if I can’t pick which one, flip a coin!

  14. Jdubs says:

    WOW what a night in the nba! Crazy lines by Lillard and Boogie, some stealthy 30 pointers by deng and McDermott(?!?!) and some big games all around… I’m not even that mad about the Warriors getting demolished hahaha. Fun night to be an nba fan

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jdubs: Yeah that Blazers win… Just wow. Add in Tobias debut, Humphries playing well, Kawhi sitting frustrating everyone, Mahinmi huge night, Myles Turner hit his first career 3 at a pivotal time under a minute, so much drama!

      • Slim

        Slim says:

        @JB Gilpin: 3 of the 6 guys in my most recent REL trade got banged up last night. Kobe dislocated a finger. Bogut with an ankle and Bryce with a wrist.

          @Slim: Haha everyone too antsy outta the gate!

  15. ABulldogs says:
    (link)

    What do you think about Moe Harkless? I have been eyeing him for the past couple of games.

    Can we expect consistent minutes/fantasy value from him?

    I have Terrence Ross, who had a dud yesterday. Any significant boost with change to Harkless?

    Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @ABulldogs: The FT% is deceptively KILLER! Luckily stayed off the line last night. And kinda marginal everywhere else. That said, Ross is kinda blah to me, I’m good with that switch, but in 12 or 14ers I bet I could find something better

  16. Rim$shotS says:

    In a 20 team H2H dynasty league I was offered Lowry and Felton for my Galloway, Ryan Anderson, and Middleton. How do you feel about this?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Rim$shotS: Definitely the jewels are Middleton and Lowry. Lowry isn’t a spring chicken anymore either… I think I have to take it though, since Lowry is a mainstay for a few more years

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Rim$shotS: I’m going the other way. I’ll take the Middleton side, anything close and I lean toward youth. I assume the waiver wire is extremely bare too.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Rim$shotS: @Slim: If in a full rebuild, I’d be fine with that, but I think Middleton is peaking/plateauing. Eventually they’ll actually have a real PG. Lowry helps win now for the next 2-3 years at least

      • Rim$shotS says:
        (link)

        @Slim: @JB Gilpin: I hope you guys still see this but I’m #3 in the league so no rebuild here this trade would give me vucevic, westbrook, howard, middleton, monta ellis, and KCP all in one team. I got him to switch the offer to Lowry, Felton, and P.J. Hairston for Clarkson, Ryan Anderson, and Galloway.

        Would you guys go with this deal?
        And yeah the wire is dry as the Mojave desert lol

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Slim: @Rim$shotS: We see everyyyyyyything! So you’re giving up Lowry? i think if you’re winning now, I would hold.

          • Rim$HotS says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: I would be getting Lowry sorry I didn’t clear that up

  18. Mike says:
    (link)

    Yo JB!

    Would you trade Lillard for Boogie in a vacuum? Kinda worried my FT% will take a hit, but need some boards + blocks.

    Also, I am so sad I drafted Aaron Gordon and Myles Turner and now neither are on my team 🙁
    MY TEAM WOULD BE SOOOO GOOD RIGHT NOW WITH THEM.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mike: It’s razor close, I dunno if much has changed from when I ranked preseason, having Dame 7 and Boogie 9. Boogie still scares me with all the hits and falls he takes, plus the Kings suck, I would need a sweetener. Hah, yeah luckily I added Turner in all my leagues right before he took off 🙂 Wish he didn’t break his thumb, he mighta been a hold all year…

  19. Dante Green says:
    (link)

    Wow Dame went HAM against the warriors! He’s definitely cookin right now…

    I couldn’t pull the trigger on the Gobert for Gallo/Moose trade… I mean I stuck by him even during the time when he was sidelined (that was a long and grueling hold), so it’s more like “I should probably have traded him a long time ago, not now when moving him won’t change the fact that I’m already out of the playoff picture”. LOL Even my Lillard’s been getting pretty nice offers which I’ve been rejecting happily. But if I were still in the playoff hunt I definitely would have entertained the thought of moving those two.

    Right now both Utah and Portland are fighting for a playoff spot so Lillard dropping 30+ point games from here on out will be a sure thing, and even tho Gobert has been underwhelming (in our standards lol) in the blocking department, I still want to believe that there’s a decent chance he’ll average a shade under 3 going forward (had 4 last game) because his team needs him to go HAM or else they’re not making the playoffs! So I’m expecting monster statlines from these two in the upcoming weeks!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: At first I read that as Gallo and Goose and I was thinking I would have made that move. But… Moose is a different story. Big ol pass for me too. It took a while for the Lillard/Gobert combo to get going but it looks like it may finally get to where we had hoped coming into the year.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Dante Green: @Slim: Yeah Dame = insame! Haha.

        Yeah some injuries and slow starts hurt that combo, if you didn’t have all those other injuries, you mighta been fine and still in the hunt right now. You can play major spoiler now! Haha

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: @Slim:

        Hah yea, I mean I just won back-to-back against the top two teams in my league. That Lillard/Gobert pairing had serious potential, it would’ve been great if they didn’t have to miss time, especially Gobert! I could’ve wreaked havoc! Lol

    Time to drop Tim Duncan? Would you grab Brandon Jennings or Mirza?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Fella: I guess Teletovic but he’s behind both Leuer and Humphries for me. Also he’s a 2 cat guy with points and 3s only. There’s probably better out there in anything less than a 16er.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Fella: @Slim: Wow, behind Humphries?! I think Len out then Tyson hurt made them have to play Humphries. If the minutes stay though, then sure Mirza would be last.

            @Slim: @Fella: Yeah I was shocked Humphries started, but I guess no Chandler made only Leuer the bumped out guy. Wow, yeah give me either of them, Turner for AST, Len for REB/BLK, whatever need fits best

    hey jb

    drop Markieff in a 10 teamer? 9 cat h2h
    could get Teletovic, Mahinmi, Sullinger, Collison, Nurkic or Barnes

    thx pal!

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @sliimbo: My order would be… Sully, Kief, Matt Barnes, Mahinmi, Nurk, then Teletovic.

        JB Gilpin says:

        @sliimbo: @Slim: Yo! Yeah with Olynyk hurt and not adding anyone, I want Sully first too. I think I’m 100% with Slim’s order, mayyyybe Mahinmi ahead of Barnes in some builds

    You don’t think Kris Humphries will do well? I am hoping he turns it around like how he was back in the nets

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Michael: With all the injuries he pretty much has to play 24+ min. Will it get to 30 min? I don’t think so, especially if Len and Chandler make it back. If he can carve out a role then he could be a stream worthy guy. The order of the Suns bigs for me goes… Len (when healthy), Leuer, Humphries, Chandler, Teletovic, Len (when not healthy).

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Michael: @Slim: ROS I think they stop playing Chandler, but for now he’s still gonna play, I know he got this sprain right outta the 2nd half gate, but I don’t think he’s suddenly gonna go to 15 mins a night. By end of season they might bench him. Just seems like he got this run right when getting there only on Len out and Tyson hurt right away

    Hey JB,

    What would you offer from my team for Myles Turner in 8 Cat/H2H Dynasty?

    Guards
    Wall, oladipo, Knight, Hill, harris

    Forwards
    Batum, Covington, Gallo, Draymond, Griffin

    Centers
    Len, Okafor, Nurkic,

    He wants a SG in return so I was thinking of offering Hill because he has SG eligibility. However if I offer Hill for Valanciunas (also on his team) I have a better chance of winning this year (only IF Griffin and Knight are both healthy come playoff time).

    Because they are both NOT healthy I’m looking towards the future. Basically, should I be going hard after Turner and if Hill is enough to get him, pull the trigger? If Hill is not enough, what would be a good trade for me to make?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Nick: 1st I’ll take Turner over JV for the shotblocking both now and forever. In a dynasty I would have no issues losing Batum for him, but yeah might as well try Hill first. If he’ll take Gallo I would try that 2nd.

      • Nick says:

        @Slim:

        Thanks Slim!

        • Nick says:

          @Nick:
          Not covington if he’ll take him?

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Nick: @Slim: @Nick: Yeah totally agree, I want Turner ROS over JV anyway. Yeah I would offer Hill first, then Coving, then Gallo last. I kno Covington is younger, but it’s these awful Sixers. I’d be happy with any of those 3 getting Turner.

    Yo JB!

    Pretty huge trade I’ve been discussing with a friend who really wants KD off me.

    My Durant + Payton + Zeller FOR His Lillard + Dieng + Gordon

    I know I’m losing best in deal…but I don’t feel good about Payton with Jennings in the picture. Jennings played in OT over him already…?! And for Zeller, big Al is back now and he’s droppable, or at elast not a “must-own”.

    That being said, I do take a HUGE hit in fg going from KD to Lillard. The FT%, threes, points, assists, and steals, and TO (both at around 3) are all there for Dame. I do lose some boards and blocks but that is more than made up for with Dieng and Gordon. I’m confident in Gordon rest of season, but do you think Dieng keeps this up with Pek and/or Garnett back?

    Also, I haven’t checked these guys playoff schedule so I haven’t taken that into account.

    Sooooo, any analysis I missed you wanna point out? Would you do it?

    Thanks bro! Much love.

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Threekola: This is a redraft right? I know how difficult it is to lose Durant but I 100% agree with your analysis. I’ll take the Lillard side.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Threekola: @Slim: Yup I’m with ya too! I’m hugggggge on Dieng ROS. Only reason i wouldn’t do it is if you had a stacked front line of bigs and Dieng didn’t change much anyway, but I’m guessing he’d help. Much love back man!

        • Threekola says:
          (link)

          @Slim: @JB Gilpin:

          Thanks for your input guys! Hopefully I tagged both of you…I think I just figured out how haha.

          Yup, it’s redraft. Slim. 10 team standard H2H. And JB, my frontline right now is KAT, Towns, Val, and Zeller who was my stream spot. I replace Zeller with Dieng and add another rebounder in Gordon, who basically counts as a big that doesn’t take up a big spot lol.

          This trade for me is more reliant on my confidence that Elfrid will be droppable with Jennings in town. If that is the case and he wont hit numbers like 12-4-6 at leasttt, then I’m 100% doing it. I’m not worried about losing Zeller.

          With this trade I doooo lose a stream spot/open roster spot and I have Brandon Wright waiting in my IL, so if you guys are both still on board with this I’ll just try another 2 for 1 after this trade haha. This’ll be my 6th trade of the season.

          And here’s my team after this trade:

          PG- CP3, Lillard, Dipo, Schroder

          SG- Klay, Monta, Wes

          SF- Gallo, Gordon

          PF/C- Gobert, Towns, Dieng (KAT + DIENG!!!!), J-Val

          So should I pull the trigger?!

            @Slim: @Threekola: Yup you got us! Just gotta nest the Reply button from top down ha. Nice yeah one more big doesn’t hurt and neither does a pure PG especially with his play outta the gate! Take it!

  25. Jerry says:

    Hey, JB! Fournier, Schroder or Collison for ros to fill last bench spot. I’m in a twelve team head to head points league. Thanks for the help!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Jerry: It’s gotta be Fournier. If Teague or Rondo were to miss games then it would be closer but even then it’s probably no better than a push.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Jerry: @Slim: I dunno, I’m still all about Schroder and Teague’s got a bum wrist now, on top of kankle issues. I know Fournier is off a nice dimes game too, with big minutes… I’m kinda feelin German today!

    Courtney lee vs tony allen..who has a better ROS outlook? I’d like to think moving to Charlotte should bump Lee’s value..right?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @rob: Yeah I agree, a faster paced offense that wants some good wing D, I think Lee gets a bump. Kinda depends on needs with the 2 though, very different stats. Scoring/3s/FT% for Lee, Allen hurts FT% but will kill in REB/STL

  28. Ryan says:

    Bazemore or RoCo ROS? Both have been far too inconsistent for my liking, and I hate ATL’s PO sched.

    Also what are your thoughts on Dragic and Deng? It looks like Bosh will be out a while, but can they actually keep this up when Wade comes back and hogs up some usage?

    Am I sniffing a sell-high moment for the Dragon or is he about to be untethered? Ihdk. I remember him putting up some solid performances before going down with that calf strain; I feel like I should at least be slightly optimistic because he looks a lot healthier based on the highlights I’ve seen.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: Yeahhhh, I’ll go Covignton, but both are bugged down with inconsistency. Deng I expect takes a hit when Wade is going more than Dragic, but will impact them. Still, no Bosh makes their arrows point up. Yeah I would probably hold Dragon unless there was an overwhelming offer, but I doubt it

      @Slimbo: Harris is sooooo much younger! And without the various knee things. All values equal I’ll take Tobias

    JP,
    I’m in need of some rebounds as two of my big men (Zingis and Turner) aren’t great in that area. I have a wealth of threes, points and steals. Do you think I should take a risk and send Heyward for AlJeff and KCP to see if AJ can produce big time come playoffs?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steve: Ummmm, it’s def close. I think I would try for a tad more than fits, does he have another big in that KCP range he would be willing to throw in instead?

    Yo JB, just trying to upgrade my weakest player.
    Would you rather own: pbev tyson chandler, galloway, patty mills, shelvin mack, jared dudley, brendan wright, jerryd bayless (if healthy), oj mayo, donald sloan, shane larkin or jose calderon?

    Thanks in advance!
