    • with allen I was looking for points..but I will get them another way..thanks for the advice..

    • Wow, that's a great team. Honestly I'd hold onto Okafor as Josh Smith's bad shooting will hurt your team (Nash, Carter, Amare, Manu, Miller all get great %s) and you don't really need the 3's from Ray Allen (Carter, Manu, Miller, Gordon can all get you 2+ each) as much as you need Okafor's boards and blocks (especially with Al Harrington a little weak in boards at C). If you take Josh Smith you can always make up his lack of 3's with Al Harrington's 3's at C so its definitely plausible but you have to weigh your options. Do you have enough boards that you can downgrade that and is the increase in shooting and steals worth getting lower %s (you don't need his 3 point shooting)?

    • here they are

    • Amare and Dalembert are good so you should be okay at C. If you take the trade you have to be sure you're willing to tank your FT% and take a hit in FG% to get more scoring, less boards, and maybe half a steal extra per game. If this was a H2H league I'd keep Emeka but since he's so injury prone and I have the feeling this is a Roto league I'd take Josh Smith. If you want to risk it, you could wait it out and see if Okafor's value rises with some good games but looking at your C situation you should be okay as long as Amare's knee and Dalembert's foot hold up.
