    Hey Guys,

    Wondering whether to make this deal in my deep 20-team, 8-cat H2H league.

    I give: Jameer Nelson, Donald Sloan
    I get: Carlos Boozer, JJ Hickson

    While I don’t love either Boozer or Hickson, I think they have value in a league this deep. If you look at my team (below) I’m in need of some Bigs for sure and I have a lot of guard depth.

    PGs: M. Conley, J. Lin, J. Nelson, D. Sloan, D. Schroder, C. Joseph
    SGs: M. Ellis, J. Crawford, A. Rivers, J. Harris
    SFs: C. Copeland,
    PF/Cs: T. Harris, E. Davis, Mason Plumlee, B. Biyombo

    IR: K. Durant

    Would be nice to get BLKs, but this is a start. Also, as an Ed Davis owner, I think it helps me to get Booze to secure that value.

    What do you guys think? Thanks!

      @jon: As a Sloan owner in REL (20 teamer too), I don’t know if I want to give him up yet… It’s close though given needs… Could you swap him out with Schroder and make it work?

      • jon says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: I probably could swap him out for Schroder… but Sloan’s value goes right down when Hill, Watson, Stuckey come back – right? Feels like a sell-relatively-high, no?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @jon: He is, but I think he can be Schroder-ish even when they’re back, and this Hill thing lingering is no good. Any small injury for any of em and Sloan can get a lot of work end of year too.

    14 Team 10 Cat H2H

    The A-Davis owner in my league drafted pretty poorly except for Anthony D of course. Has not won one matchup with him. Am I giving up too much in offering:
    Z-Bo
    Ty-Law
    C-Lee?
    What ya think?

      @The guy: Not at all! Would be shocked if he took it to be frank, but worth trying!

    Hey guys,
    That TJones news wasnt very encouraging esp since im also holding rubio. Are you guys still holding in 12teamers 9cat leagues?
    My lineup
    G – cp3 jrue rubio beverley
    F – kawhi hayward tjones draymond
    C – horford brolo rolo j.hill sullinger

    Constantly losing 3s so far, should i just punt that cat and drop beverley for LENsanity, kaman or shumpert?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Tyler: 12 team… On the fringe… Yeah I’m fine grabbing Lin for PBev. Nice game tonight for Lin. I’d try to hold out for a little clarification on Jones in a 12er

      • Tyler says:

        @JB Gilpin:
        Hey man, its Alex Len btw haha. I know Lensanity is confusing, just got carried away by the bandwagoners.
        Hmm so should i move beverley for shumpert or alex len? Solomon hill is also available.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Tyler: Ohhhh hahahaha, well done. Thought it was a typo maybe or something. Nah I wouldn’t for Len, minutes will yoyo. Yup I think I’d have to for Shumpert, having a hell of a game tonight!

          • Tyler says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin:
            I know right? Thats a helluva game from iman. I just hope he will be consistent even with caldy back cos this might bite me back in the arse with bev not having any competition.
            Thanks bruh!

    Haha love this blog. What do you think about Greg Monroe vs Andrew Bogut vs Taj Gibson for the long haul?

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Sneaky Pete: Thanks for checking us out man! Man, really tough one, Bogut is the best right now but an injury can happen his first step outta bed… I’ll lean Bogut, but don’t feel great about it

    1. Do you prefer morrow or middleton?

    2. you think stuckey and speights will have value this year, or would you rather own sims over marreese?

    3. Is covington worth grabbing?

    All for 16 man shallow FA pool league.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: 1. Gimma Kmidd 2. With lee coming back, probably Sims but close. 3. Ehhhh, probably not, rather everyone else you’ve mentioned

  6. hamtime says:
    (link)

    sorry, speights or middleton? gotta make a quick add..

    • hamtime says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: morrow, speights, middleton – please pick 2. currently have morrow and speights but looking to make the drop.

        @hamtime: Leaving out Speights

    Man, Ibaka has been stinking it up so far this season except like 2 games. I’m not going to try to sell low on him or anything but what gives? He’s playing like a bad shooting guard.

    • JB Gilpin

      @hanns: Was cold today and was a blowout so Brooks didn’t play him late. Should come around

    Drop c lee for shump?
    9 cat h2h
    Thx

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @the pillar & the stones: Ehhh, it’s close. i actually think I would since Lee’s %s are unsustainable

  9. Giannis or Danny Green?

    It’s looking like Green is returning to 2012-2013 form. Giannis is also full of potential. What do you think here? I also have Jabari Parker if that means anything.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jeffrey Ito: Sticking with the Greek. Danny has been playing well, but Giannis had 2 fouls in the first minute and a half and then the 2nd unit gave the Bucks a huge lead so he didn’t play but that first 1:30 or so in the first half, why his mins were down tonight

    as a Pelicans fan and an AD owner (I bring out the best in him when he’s with me) is it too much to want some 3s this season? … man if (once he starts) hitting a trey per game he’ll have value in every cat bar assists (and even then he is only 1 assist away from a positive score in that cat as well) … according to Basketball Monster in my league settings where we have $100 to spend at auction he is worth $71 currently and he hasn’t yet reached his ceiling (bearing in mind KD’s value was $58 last season) … I’ve heard of a studs and scrubs draft strategy but with him it might be worth consider a stud and scrubs strategy next season … here’s a challenge for you next season JB you gotta draft a team with him at max value and 9 other $1 players … I think you’d have success particularly with your ability to find $1 talent

      @Dirk’s Digglers: Must be sick being a Pels fan right now! Yeah, taken 4 3s so far this year, he’s got a good shot! Some will start falling! Yeah a week ro two ago I looked at his BBMonster per-game value this year vs all previous season they have data for, and his is the highest. Hah, I dunno, in my auction ranks I always have the studs valued higher than anyone else! Be an interesting makeup doing that strategy!

    Hi JB, I have a center heavy team. Would you trade Derrick Favors, Marcin Gortat or Zach Randolph for Rondo? Thanks for advice.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Wen: Sure, yeah I’d trade any one of them straight up. Still think Favors has yet to hit his stride, I’d go with Gortat+a sweetener

  12. mamba says:
    (link)

    I want to try to trade Reggie Jackson while his value is still high. Right now he’s giving me 2nd-3rd round value but he’s probably going to go back up to 60-75 pick value once Westbrook is back. Who would you be looking to acquire that another owner might consider? Brandon Knight maybe?

    And lastly, what do you think Reggie’s points/rebound/assists will be once Westbrook comes back? He did 13/4/4 last year but I can see an improvement on that this year.

    thanks in advance

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @mamba: Yeah, would love going after Knight! I would go to a team that needs PG depth and try to take one of their wings or C. For Favors? Maybe even Horford as a buy low, but doubt it. Ummm, well I think it’s that, but maybe even lower since a lot of last year was with Westbrook gone too. As a sub last year (should be most of the games Westbrook was healthy) 12.3/4.1/3.4. So yeah, I’ll stick with that 13/4/4ish range.

    Hey slim, just a quick question.
    Was thinking about dropping Noel for someone like gorgui (seeming pek is out). He just hasn’t really delivered, u reckon I should hold out n hope he turns it around or drop him?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Sam: I dunno about Slim, but I would have to hold Noel over Dieng. Although I would hope to get Dieng for someone else who is my last roster spot

      • Sam says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: haha my bad jb, been a long day. id say my worst 2 players atm are shump and noel, seeming I’ve picked up beal whose coming back soon. would u think dieng over shump, or roll with iman seeming he’s coming off a crazy game?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Sam: All good! Whewwww, yeah I’d take Dieng over Shump but that’s a sophie’s choice, that’s for sure!
