Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I was offered Monta Ellis for Richard Jefferson
I really need to improve TO - or I'll just tank it
3PTM, FT%, AST, STL, BLK are VERY tightly contested in our league.
RJ is really helping me
in FT% - 6 attempts/game at 80%
in 3PM - 1.2/game
Monta is good in:
AST, STL, and REB
a bit bad on FT%
and really bad in 3PTM and TO
What do you guys think? I know clearly that Monta is the better fantasy player but in this case, is he really going to help my team.
I have Corey Maggette and Ben Gordon for FT%. Are they enough to carry me so I can drop RJ and have Monta help me in STL.
PG - Mo Williams, Luke Ridnour, Sebastian Telfair
SG - Corey Maggette, Ben Gordon
SF - Carmelo Anthony, Richard Jefferson
PF - Shawn Marion, Jeff Green
C - Tim Duncan, Kendrick Perkins
monta might not get as many assists as you think. i assume he will go to point guard and crawford will go to shooting guard, but the highest amount of assists monta has had in his career is 4.1...this might be attributed to baron but you just don't know if he can put out a consistent assist and high% FG game as a point guard
last time i checked monta didnt shoot bad from the stripe, id try to get more players involved so you dont get totally screwed if ellis re-injures himself. but you have to seriously consider it. also its prob best to either not join a team that counts TO's or just take them bc the best teams usually have the best players and the best players have to ball the most thus turning the ball over the most.
try and expand the deal to make it less risky.
go to mine please about jhoward and chandler

Monta averaged just 76.7% last season on around 5 free throw attempts per game.
I'm currently at 78.3% in our league and only ranked 10 of 16.
1st place is at 82%, so you can imagine how tight the FT% race
I need to have a player shooting better than 80% to keep going up on this cat unless you say Corey Maggette and Ben Gordon is enough.
On the other hand, I also have to improve AST and STL. I can definitely catch-up on this cat if I take Monta since these cats are also very tightly contested.
what do you guys think?
