    Drop Eric Gordon? Not sure

    Is it even worth dropping Gordon? Below are a few available that I might want to pick up for him. Any thoughts?

    Samuel Dalembert – thought maybe him since I only have 2 centers
    Stephen Jackson
    Trevor Ariza
    Arron Afflalo

    This is my team I am currently in first by 8 pts

    Kyle Lowry
    Nick Young
    Landry Fields
    Lebron James
    Jared Dudley
    Josh Smith
    Shawn Marion
    Marcin Gortat
    Andrew Bynum
    Mo Williams
    JJ Redick
    Mario Chalmers
    Eric Gordon

    • Drop Gordon, for sure. I'd pick up Afflalo, he's been tearing it up as of late. Dalembert has seen a huge decline in minutes= decline in production. Personally, I'd pick up Afflalo and use him and one of your other utility players in a trade for a solid big man.

    • Drop Gordon. No need to keep him. In order, pick up
      1.Dalembert
      2.Afflalo
      3.either of the other two

    • Unless you KNOW you're playoff bound, you hear some VERY good news about his progress, and your league has in season games past his projected recovery time then you should drop him. He's just not coming back.

    • Hey Danielle,

      Definitely drop Eric Gordon. He has been so injury prone the last few years and it looks like NO is close to shutting him down (maybe bringing him back for a few games towards the end of the year) so I don't think it's worth it to keep him. I know it sucks cuz you've been hanging on to him for so long, but he's only going to hurt you more than help you from here on out. I definitely recommend picking up Dalembert. He's a solid source of FG%, REBS, and BLKS and as long as he's getting 20-25 minutes a game, he will produce. Like you said, you only have 2 centers so I strongly strongly recommend you drop Gordon for Dal.
