Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
If you need the assists then I'd go after andre miller+dalembert somehow...
But you're getting raped either way, the stats kind of make it a good trade for you, but bynum's value is far more than that of those two players. lou williams is a FA half the time.

What size league do you play in where Louis Williams is a FA half hte time??
He's owned in 80% of leauges, and I'm guessing that most of the 20% of leagues where he is a FA are either 8 teams or less, or just very non competitive.
I just checked, and he is owned in all my leagues, including a small 6 team league with friends (owned on the team in 1st), and an 8, 10 12 and 16 team league.
He's the league's leading scorer coming off the bench, has great FT%, hits a lot of 3's, can get 5-9 assists on any given night, averages close to 1 steal per game, and only a little over 1 TO per game.
I definitely agree that Bynum's value is more than the others combined, just sayin that you seem to be seriously undervaluing Williams.

Chad, care to elaborate on how I am a moron? Or are you just going to say that and then go away?
I thought my response was pretty clear.
Bynum has more value. But if Dalembert plays to the level he is capable of and Lou Will keeps playing at his level, they cover more categories and give you lots more depth.
I didn't say that they would 100% be the better choice, I said they could be given the right circumstances, but overall value, Bynum has the edge.
I would love to hear an intelligent arguement against my response. But I highly doubt I'll get one.
Just giving an answer without any reasoning is much more moronic in my opinion.
Bynum has more value, BUT trading a stud for depth can usually work out in your favor even if the names look like you lost.
I think this trade hinges on which Sammy D shows up for the rest of the season. If he plays at his best (scoring 15pts or so, 9+ rebs, and 1.5+ blks) then I think this trade will work for you, since you are getting the majority of Bynum's stats in return, plus Lou's stats.
But as far as actual value goes, Bynum all day.
