I'd make the deal. Yao will significantly improve your front line while you have enough firepower with Kobe, Maggette, JJ, West to cover Pierces lost scoring.
Ford and Davis should combine to at least equal Williams in assists.
A line up of Ford/Kobe/Davis/Maggette/West.Okafor/Biedrens/Yao/Johnson/Ellis/Wilcox or Childress looks good to me.
Depends greatly on other players on the teams, what cats/scoring system etc. very hard to say without that info.
Yao is the best player in the deal at this stage so would have have to favour that side on the given info.
Interesting. Pierce isn't gonna be the first option so see his numbers go down a bit. D.Williams is the better part of the deal. He had 9.3 APG last year while Ford had 7.9 and Ford's minutes will be down a bit since Calderon is another great PG option for Toronto. Davis isn't great, but neither is Dunleavy. It all comes down to Yao Ming. He is VERY efficient! In this case the Ming deal SLIGHTLY edges out the other. Its a close one though. I am guessing you badly want Williams.
