I think I have a high quality team overall, but I feel like I should really go for dominance in a range of categories because of the format of the league. I expect to be very strong in free throws made, blocks, and steals, but other than that I don't see much of an identity.
There are interesting FAs available - notably Mike Conley, Rodney Stuckey, Rashad McCants, Andray Blatche, Nene, and the entire Pistons PF/C rotation other than Sheed. So I'd like to offer some 2-for-1 trades to teams with injuries or who have a couple dead spots from autodrafting, but I don't know what I should be looking to give up, and what I should be looking to gain, or if any of those FAs are so much better a fit for me that I should drop one of my later picks right away.
I would really appreciate some advice.
your very right, your team is very solid. maybe try to use oneal and bynum as trade bait and having pau and bynum together is risky with one of them going to take a hit from how good the lakers are going to play. id keep gasol over bynum only because pau is a consistent player, bynum hasnt played in a year.
Your team also looks strong at rebounding. I dont recommend though having both Bynum and Gasol. It is unlikely that both of them will average 10 rebounds a game. I would probably stick with Gasol though personally i dont care too much for him. If you could sell high on Bynum I would and go after a SF like Gay. I cant believe you were able to nab Brand with the 19th pick and Kevin Martin with the 42nd pick.

I just think the Lakers will be so dominant that the overall effect of having their starting PF and C will be good, and I don't have to stress about which of them gets more of the windfall.
Bynum went about 35 picks after Granger and Gay, so that'd be a tough sell right now.
I don't know if I'm so weak in 3s that I should package Smith with somebody in a trade, or if I should be looking to get another point guard, or one more big body to tie up rebounds and blocks. Am I wasting CP3 with Ford and Felton the only other point guards on my roster?
