      @Know One: I like your bigs, Faried should pick it up, yeah I think i’d take best player of the deal in Kobe. Any time!

    Do you think it is still worth it to trade Monroe + Teletovic for Tim Duncan? Considering the way Teletovic plays now is pretty awesome. If I move them 2, I definitely need to find a replacement for my 3pt considering he gives me quite a lot everyday. He’s averaging almost 3 treys per game now.

    Looking at my roster, would that make my team somewhat needing more threes if Tele is gone?

    My current roster:
    Guard – Curry, Lawson, MCW, KCP, Sloan
    Forwards – Draymond, T.Jones, Teletovic, McD
    C – Millsap, Gortat, Monroe, Ed Davis

      @DK: Yeah I’d still take Duncan, 3s are very easy to find on the wire. Remind me of your league, can you stream every day/make a good amount of moves a week?

      • DK says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Yeah I can stream every day and weekly limit of 5 moves. There’s always players going in and out of FA. Of course the good streamer ones like Devin Harris, Hill, Morrow, etc are all gone. Of course players like CJ Miles, later Jodie Meeks should occasionally pop back in along with others.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @DK: Yup then def would take Duncan! And Telet showing so far tonight why the 3s only guys are tough to stretch and attach to all the time, 0-4 FG so far

          • DK says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Accepted trade. My league is pretty tough on trade policing. I have a feeling they might veto this trade simply because they think it is not a fair trade added to fact Teletovic sucks today.

            • JB Gilpin

              @DK: Tell your league mates JB from Razzball said they can suck a d for vetoing trades with their fervor. It’s plenty fair!

    My R-Jax for his Leonard?

    • Ryan says:
      (link)

      @manosun16:
      Manosun,

      I’d take that trade in a heartbeat. Have you been seeing the numbers Leonard has been putting up over the past few games? He’s clearly recovering from his eye injury, or at least learning to work through it better. R-Jax’s numbers are really inflated right now because of the OKC injuries. I think he’ll still maintain good production once Durant and Westbrook return, but it won’t be anywhere near what it is now.

      @manosun16: Yup, gimme Kawhi!

    Hey JB

    Just got offered Jared Sullinger and Anthony Morrow for my Ricky Rubio and Jrue Holiday.

    I got Teague, Lowry, Brandon Knight, and Chris Paul as my backup Guards.

    Im really lacking in big men as I got Al Jefferson, Milsap, Taj Gibs, Dieng, Brandan Wright, and Ed Davis

    What do you think about the trade?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Locifer: Nooooo no no no, you’re giving up way too much

    Hey JB just got offered a very intriguing trade. I got offered DMC for my Ibaka and Korver. What are your thoughts? Thanks man. Also great podcast!

      @Thunder from down under: Whewwwww… I still love my Ibaka, think some big games come down the road, I’m very very very narrowly holding. Thanks so much for listening!

      • Thunder from down under says:

        @JB Gilpin: I do have Davis and Noel though does that change anything?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Thunder from down under: That def does… Yeah I think I’ll flip flop, run to get some DMC!

    i was offered B. Lopez and Drummond for Boogie.

    we are a 10 team with fantasy points.

    should i go for it?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @the_henchmen: Nah, too worried about Drummo and a little slow start and Brolo with injury concern

    10 team H2H league with 14 players and 1 Injury Reserve spot. I want to pick up Swaggy P and stash him before he comes back but I would have to drop somebody. Who would you consider dropping for Swaggy P out of Courtney Lee, Olynyk, or Kanter? It is a points based league with extra bonus points for double doubles so Kanter has shown some good value.

    I could also drop Calderon and add Swaggy P and put Swaggy P in my IR spot until he gets back. But once he’s healthy I would have to drop somebody else on my roster to make room for him. What do you think? Worth an add or wait and see how effective he is when he comes back?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @mamba: Yeah Kanter is better there, man I don’t wanna drop any of those guys! I think I’d wait out Swaggy P, not too enthused about what he’ll do with Kobe throwing up a ridiculous amount of shots a night

  8. Boss says:

    Ed Davis or Demarre Caroll as your last man?

    • DK says:
      (link)

      @Boss: Depends on the rest of your roster. Rebs/Blks – Davis. Treys + steal definitely Carroll. Either way I would still go Carroll because he has higher value I think. Unless you really need blocks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Boss: I’m going the other way, but very close. I want Davis given equal needs, blocks are harder to get than 3s and they’re pretty close in steals (Ed 0.8 DeMarre 1.2)

    Should I trade vucevic and Rubio for holiday and Sullinger

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Spo: Eeeehhhh, it’s very very close. You have any other injured guys? If not I would keep Rubio

      • Spo says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:
        I have only Calderon and batum but they should both be back soon. I just really need assists and steals

        • Spo says:
          (link)

          @Spo:
          It’s a standard yahoo 12 team 9 cat league

          • Spo says:
            (link)

            @Spo:
            I think I’m going to pull the trigger. Do you thinks it’s a bad move at all?

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @Spo: Def not a “bad” move. I’m a big Vuc guy, but also a big Holiday guy. It’s just if Rubio is Rubio in 6 weeks from now, you’re gonna want that so much more over Sully. I think since I like Rubio so much, I think you’re giving up a little much, but then again my 2 leagues I own Rubio is REL (20 team dynasty) and Yahoo F&F (weekly league, so you can’t filter guys in and out, so holding one hurt guy is easy)

    Got offered Kobe for Derozan.

    Kobe’s stats seem better but his FG% is atrocioussssss. Roto saying his FG might improve when nick young comes back but idk. Am i wrong for thinking Derozan is better? Last thing I wanna do is turn down a good trade.

    If it matters my team lacks assists/blocks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Michael: Yeah he’s been awful with the volume… I would think Kobe could get more than DeRozan but I don’t mind it straight up at all
