    Seasons greetings guys! Looking to improve my bench. I currently have Stuckey, Mason Plumlee, Motiejunas, and Matt Barnes. Drop any of those guys for James Johnson, Corey Brewer,Iguodala, Meeks, Kaman, KMidd, or Shawne Williams? I’m more than likely dropping Barnes, and if J-Smoove goes to HOU I’ll drop Motiejunas, however, if he goes to Miami then that takes Shawne off the list. What are my moves?

      @Annunnaki: Happy holidays man! Right now Barnes is an easy drop for someone. Probably Johnson for now, but it might not be long-term. Meeks with Smoove gone is a little interesting, maybe they filter him into some SF minutes. Agree, D-Mo is a cut if Smoove goes there, we’ll see where he lands

    JB- what do you think of smooves value in HOU? In my fpts lg he’s currently the 13th best player…… Is he going. To get crushed?

      @Tony: of course I own Motie too ugh

        @Tony: Whoa, it’ll def go down from that mark, surprising he’s that high in any format! Might not be Houston though, you never know… Motiejunas unfortunately is prob a drop if he goes there

    Thoughts on Sullinger in Boston? Was amazing when I drafted but looking like Zeller is the better option. Should I drop Sullinger for Zeller?

      @Mozgov: Sheeeeesh. Yup I think I would, it’s shocking it’s come to that. Zeller’s great FT for a big helps a ton

    JB, how about dropping Sully for O’Quinn or Demarre?

    I’m still trying to get rid of this guy.

    • Mari says:

      @Mari: Or drop him for Shabazz

      • JB Gilpin

        @Mari: I’m fine with all 3. Depends on needs, Pts – Shabazz, 3s/Stl – DeMarre, Reb/Blk – Irishman

    I called B.S. on a trade in my league, but it looks like it’s going to go through anyway.

    Manager 1 gets Lillard, Cousins, Matt Barnes and a 1st round pick.
    Manager 2 gets Griffin, Draymond, Monroe and a 2nd round pick.

    Manager 1 is saying that the trade is fair, cause he’s going to drop Barnes anyway. That he used a trade analyzer and it came out close.

    My beef is that the trade analyzer means nothing. Cousins’ stats took a hit with him out with a viral infection. He should be ranked in the top 15.

      @TheMuppetManiac:

      I made a mistake. The picks qre switched. Team 1 gets a second round pick and team 2 gets the 1st round pick.

        @TheMuppetManiac:
        Sorry. I was right the first time. Team 1 gets the 1st round pick with Lillard and Cousins.

          @TheMuppetManiac: Yeah I don’t love it, Manager 1 getting so much value, but it’s not obvious collusion or anything. Unless they know each other and you think they schemed, it’s fine to me. I’m very anti-veto

    • ADadhd says:

      @TheMuppetManiac: If that team was punting blocks and FT then getting Griffin and Monroe would be awesome. I vetoed a trade in my league just based on the fact that I couldn’t rap my head around it and thought the guy was absurd. There was no colusion I believe is the word. I am usually all about getting the more useful players on the deal but I am with you on this one. Just hard to veto a trade unless you really feel they are conspiring against you. I vetoed one earlier this year because the guy who usually takes it traded Jeremy Lin for Mike Conley. Of course he found the greenest Asian guy in our league and used his ethnic pride against him. It was total evil. Four weeks later and he is thanking us every chance he gets for saving him from himself.

    Love @slim making a case for Butler! I got a jimmy for jimmy!!! He had a flukey low percentage game today but surely at least a 2nd rounder, even in my shallow league

      @Lasandro: Haha yeah he is in looovvvveeeee. A game more on my side last night. Still very solid and way up my board for sure.

    Yo JB what’s up brotha merry xmas to ya. So here’s what’s up, i tried to move my rjax, sent out trade proposals to people in my league:

    = bjennings
    = jsmoove
    = ariza
    = ryanderson
    = oladipo
    = draydray

    After a few hours i actually got a taker, IT WAS THE OWNER OF BJENNINGS! So what do u think of that trade? Lols

      @Dante Green: Merry Christmas man! The bottom 4 would’ve been absolute steals. It’s decent, don’t love it, don’t hate it. Worried Jennings might get moved as the PIstons are willing to outright drop Smith.

      • Dante Green says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: yea brotha i feel ya, just took a chance! Maybe theyre worried about rjax’s playing time, but moving bjennings with dirk together for a solid pf/c wont be a bad idea, both have name value haha. Merry xmas again brotha thanks for always taking time responding to all our questions!

    I picked up Nene last week. He’s at the bottom of my bench. Should I drop him for Ed Davis, James Johnson or Shawne Williams? I have a pretty balanced team, so I’m just looking for best value.

    Happy Holidays to all.

    • JB Gilpin

      @TheMuppetManiac: I’d go for James Johnson right now, but none of those guys I’m huge on. Happy Holidays!

    Curious what you guys think about Celtics frontcourt ? I have Sullinger and Olynyk on different teams and I was debating dropping Sully for Zeller or possibly O’quinn. 2 games after trade may be hyper reacting but O’quinn and Zeller won’t last another good game on the wire I am sure.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @ADadhd: Yeah I don’t think so either. Olynyk with the 3s I’d narrowly, and I mean NARROWLY take over Zeller. But it’s a coin flip each night with those 2. I’d def take O’Quinn and either guy over Sully these days though
