    Batum, Horford, and Rubio for Klay, Parker, Jarret Jack, and Bosh

    Batum, Horford, and Rubio for Klay, Parker, Jarret Jack, and Bosh would prob drop
    My team as is:
    Wade, Beal, Brandon Knight, Horford, Gallinari, Rubio, Batum, Amare, Asik, Okafor, Derozan, George Hill, and Hinrich (team was autoed and dropped most due to injuries so most of team is waiver wire)

    • Doc: Know your situation well as I auto'd too and only have my top 5 players left on roster. Have a few opinions on this trade 1)This trade looks fair until you dig deeper. Where do you stand for playoffs? If your fighting for a playoff spot I might make this trade but i'd be stuck when playoffs start. 2) I'd be stuck because everyone but Bosh has a lousy playoff schedule. I have jack(Klay on same schedule) and parker but rest of my team has very good playoff slate so I can overcome most of that(also have Paul with a bad schedule too). Batum,Horford and Rubio have super playoff schedule's,especially Horford and Rubio(Al 6 straight 4 game weeks and Rubio 5 4 game weeks in a row. Weeks 21-23 Bautm has 12 games( I have Hickson so i know Blazers have 12). 3) Just my first impression,reading your post,is that the trader is playing you for your best playoff scheduled players!!!! Maybe not but it seems that way. 4) Looking at your team I myself wouldn't want to part with a great RB's guy like Horford and Batum grabs alot too.With Gallo battling an injury,Amare still working for more PT and will Okafur get less PT once team starts playing it's youngster's down the line, I'd hold onto my rebounder's. Bosh is not a double -double pts./rb's type player,only occassionally. I love Batum,best across the board cat 9 player in this trade. Rubio is getting better and better each game(know his FG% and TO's suck) but he can give you a consistent line like he did last night. Doc if your locked into playoffs I'd keep what I have. It will payoff in the playoffs!!! Good luck!
