Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I was offered: David Lee(GS) & Mike Conley(MEM)
i would give: Brandon Jennings(MIL) & Joakim Noah(CHI) both who are hurt
-Brandon Jennings traded for Mike Conley
-Joakim Noah traded for David Lee
+both jennings will be out 4-6 weeks and noah be out 8-10 weeks. but when these guys come back from injury i know they r better than conley and lee. what would u do?
"both jennings will be out 4-6 weeks and noah be out 8-10 weeks. but when these guys come back from injury i know they r better than conley and lee. what would u do?"
you answered your own question - if you can make the playoffs with Noah and Jennings as dead weight, then stand pat. If you're struggling, do the trade. No point in having good players for the playoffs if you miss them.
BTW since you don't have percentage cats, Jennings' value goes up by a healthy amount.
I'd rather have Conley over Jennings even when Jennings is healthy... Given full health I'd take Noah over Lee, but as long as Noah is projected to be out, you HAVE to take this deal, no doubt about it.
Plus, thumb injuries like Noah's can get re-aggravated at any time. I had a similar injury to my thumb and it sounds dumb, but it seriously took forever to "heal" and even now, over a year later, if it gets hit hard or something when I'm playing ball it feels off.
definitely a steal. i'd jump on it right now. personally i think noah would be eased in very very slowly to preserve him in the playoffs. 4 weeksworthof stats from conley would definitely trump jennings missed time.
