    Hi JB,

    Who would you choose between Taj, Jordan Hill, Henson, and Kanter? I have Taj, Whiteside, and Nurkic on my roster.

    Thanks.

    Hi JB!

    Would you drop Frye or McLemore for George Hill?

    Thanks, and happy new year!

      @Mike: Yo dude! Yup I’d probably drop either for him, losing Frye first. Any time, happy new year!

    Thanks for telling me to stand pat on Kieff – I just need him to rebound more! It already got a PF who hangs out on the permiter in ibaka

    Meanwhile, gortat is damn near unownable in my shallow league. Shall I drop him for giannis or Covington even? He’s poo in my 14cat roto

    • Lasandro says:

      @jb Gilpin: giannis just got picked up. Covington or Jarrett better overall ROS pickups than Marcin? I’m thinkin the acquisition of hump has screwed his chances of boarding well and right now I’m just after someone who’ll potentially be a more attractive trade piece in the future

        @Lasandro: Maybe JB disagrees but I like Covington much better than Jack. Vs Gortat? It’s probably a bit more need based. Mostly coming down to FG%. But I imagine Gortat’s track record will make him the more valuable commodity in a trade.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:

        @Lasandro: Yeah I’d still want Covington over Jack, but if 3s/steals aren’t a need I’d want Jack. Good %s for Ast and low TO. I’m fine grabbing either for Gortat

        @jb Gilpin: with GSW plying an extra 3 games more than OKC the ROS from next week, is it worth trying a straight KD for curry swap? What about harden even, who will play the exact amount of games as KD from next week?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Lasandro: I think I still like KD over those options, although Curry with the more games is intriguing.

    So Kevin Love for Draymond Green. Crazy?

    • JB Gilpin

      @Scott: Nope. If I was a top 1 or 2 team, I’d take Green thinking ahead about H2H playoff sched

    Thanks for the shoutout bra! Interesting discussion on Kieff’s value. Seems like the jruy may still be out between he and Gianni’s ROS value.. Kidd did Freak no favours today. WTF is he doing? 15min all in the first half?!

    Been offered Gay for Millsap in my 14cat roto. Love Trill as much as you do but is this fairly even? Was thinkin of countering for M Gasol, even tho I’ll be losing in 3s which is a cat I could use some help in and I def need the bump in scoring. He’s unfortunately not interested in Serge who I’d like to shop for a Gay-type

    With Deron possibly out for a lil while, I’m looking at Gortat closely now.. to drop, or not to drop. Of course, he had a good game today against the poopybockers. AND Covington, who I was close to picking up for Gortat, had himself a shocker today, too haha. Jack is looking like a nice pickup but if Gortat picks it up a lil, I know I’ll regret dropping him, even in an 8-teamer. Shame Nurkic isnt still available otherwise I woulda picked him up in a heartbeat haha. Hell, maybe I should float an offer for him

      @Lasandro: Yessir! Yeah, weird, benched for Nate Wolters. Yikes. The Gay deal is for sure close, still Trill for me though especially since it’s roto. Hold Ibaka! Huge tonight.

      Gortat for Nurkic? Might get taken!

    • Lasandro says:

      @JB Gilpin: so you’re saying that nurkix is an obvious upgrade from gortat despite him ceding mins to Hickson today? They’re still coached by the same guy who benched faried for a majority of the season yes? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Lasandro says:

      @jb Gilpin: as a seperate trade, what do you think of my KD and Ty for curry or either bled or Conley? Like it? Or do I try the same but AD instead of curry? Yes, the dude has both players on his squad somehow, as a result of a stupid trade earlier in the season

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Lasandro: def not obvious! But barely lower downside with so much more upside. Nahhhhh, I like KD/Ty more. AD though! Now you got me thinking. AD/Conley for KD/Ty – sure!

      • Lasandro says:
        (link)

        @jb Gilpin: if I can’t get a trade for gortat, do I go ahead and pick up jack for him? He’ll prob me more valuable now right?

        • JB Gilpin

          @Lasandro: Ummm, yeah I think that team needed a little more in PG over C, I’d think about it
