      • Losing Johnson and Randolph is really going to hurt your threes. But, since your last in those categories anyways it really depends on if you want to try to make up ground or not. LeBron James is a tremendous talent, but his value in roto is much less than his value within a h2h league. I think that the Joe Johnson and Zach Randolph side is the better in this one. If you can get a little bit more, than I would do this trade, but as is I would sit tight.

        As for the Baron Davis/Al Thornton for Joe Johnson I would see how Thornton plays once LAC is healthy. His value could take a big hit in the second half once the team gets healthy.

    • Both Scola and E Gordon are free agents, should i drop anyone for either of them?

      My team:

      Stuckey
      Hedo
      Nash
      David Lee
      Marion
      Amare
      Diaw
      Okur
      Turiaf
      Ilgauskas
      Sessions
      Rose
      Deng
      Josh Smith

    • I would give: rashard lewis, antawn jamison, and manu ginobli

      i would get: danny granger, paul millsap, and andre miller

      please help me with this decision thanks

    • hey bebops - continuing from my last post.
      Roto league, 15 teams, 12 cats
      Keep top 3 (mine are Wade, Billups, Kidd/Marion)

      I spoke with the owner of yao and he said he'll think this offer over:
      I give: Billups, Marion, Big Z, E. Gordon
      I get: Yao, Hedo, Tony Parker, D Gooden

      I also sent out Billups for Amare strait up (the owner has both bosh and amare and needs help in PG, thought I'd give it a shot)

      Lastly I sent out Jason Richardson for Andre Miller strait up.

      do you think those are legit trade offers?
      thanks

      • intro,

        Your probably losing out a little in the first trade, basically since Gooden's health is a concern. But, if he gets healthy again I do like that for you.

        As for the Billups/Amare deal, I think that is a bit of a stretch but like you said if he's desperate he may be willing to discuss some options there.

        I very much so like the Andre Miller for Jason Richardson deal.

    • I am trying to do a 2 for 1 so i can pick up thad young or maybe conley since he has been doing great under the new coach... This is my team in a 10 team H2H league, standard categories. I am thinking about trying to move Foye and Diaw but i don't want to lose too many 3's since the person i am going to pick up wont make too many. What do you think i can get for those two or who else do you think i should try and move in a 2 for 1?

      Calderon
      Foye
      Sessions
      Dunleavy
      Turkoglu
      Dirk
      Milsap
      Big Z
      Al Jefferson
      Bargnani
      Bell
      Diaw
      Nate Robinson
      Marvin Williams
      G. Wallace

      • In all honesty, I would wait and see what happens to Gerald Wallace, and if he's out for an extended period of time drop him for Thaddues Young. I really would do a trade just for the sake of trying to pick-up a free agent. There isn't one particular category you need significant help in, so I think I would stay with the team you have here. The only person on this roster that I would cut lose for a free agent would be Raja Bell, but if you need the 3s, then I would sit tight for now.

      • For right now I would look to pick-up Scola and Mike Miller. I know Miller has not been great scoring-wise, but he has been contributing big time in all other categories and his last game could have been a good indication that he is starting to break out of his scoring slump.

        Also, keep an eye on Tyson Chandler after the All-Star break once he returns and gets healthy.

      • This is a nice looking team for a 12 team h2h league.

        Players on his team which would be good fit for your team would be John Salmons, Andre Miller, Manu Ginobli, Mike Miller, Jose Calderon, and Deron Williams.

        Right now, the guys on your team which I would look to move would be Maggette, Marion, Chandler, and Conley. Also, the guys with the most upside value right now which other teams might be interested in would be Odom, Villanueva,Sessions, and Lopez. Of these guys I would hold onto Villanueva, since he helps in multiple categories, including 3s.

        Looking to move Marion would be a good idea, but his value differs, depending on the owner. In all likelihood, you are going to have to do a deal packaging players. I would look to do some things with the players I mentioned above.

    • I wanting to trade for D-Wil. Would you offer 2 of these players for him? Rose, Garnett, David Lee.

      PG and SG Mo Williams, D. Rose, DJ Augustin, Dooling, Foye, Watson
      SF and PF: Korver, Lee, Garnett, Jamison, Bargnani, McDyess, Milici
      Center: Bosh, Duncan, M. Gasol

      12 man roster with 4 Bench Players

      • Chris,

        It's good that you realize that your are need of a pure assist man, as your team really seems to be lagging in that particular category, but I think you are giving up too much with the guys mentioned below. You should be able to get Williams by dealing one of these guys below packaged with a lesser player like Augustin, McD, or Gasol.

        I would also look into getting a lesser-valued pg would gives you assists. Someone like Chris Duhon, Andre Miller, Ramon Sessions, or Rafer Alston would be players who fall into this category.
