    Carlos Boozer for Pau Gasol? HELP!

    I play in a H2H Standard 9 Category league. Someone just offered me Pau Gasol for Carlos Boozer. So in other words, I give Carlos Boozer and I get Pau Gasol in return.

    Pau Gasol has been in somewhat of a slump recently and with Bynum coming back, his value has definitely taken a hit while Carlos Boozer is just getting back to his old form. Gah, what should I do?! HELP!

    • I've been doing this for 7 years, I used to train to be in the NBA, I absolutely love and know basketball and I win most of my leagues. This is a no-brainer question dude. Pau Gasol all day every day. I'm surprised you're even asking. It's a long season and Pau just has a minor injury which is dipping his #'s. Go ahead and pull the trigger.

    • It really depends on what you need.

      Look at the averages (I use season and 30 day mostly):

      Gasol gives you more blocks, better %s with less shock to your overall %s (compare Boozer's FGA to Gasol's), more ASTs and less TOs.

      Boozer, at least at first, has sexier numbers in his Pts and Rebs, as they are higher (at least recently).

      I can't tell from the rest of your team, but I'd trade for Gasol. He'll help you more overall.
