    I took over a 20 team keeper

    ..2 days before the trade deadline and the league is in it's 2nd year. I had to work quick so I couldn’t get any advice, and I would like some feedback now.

    The team was in 20th and last place. It was a 5 team keeper league, these were my top 5.

    -Harden as a 9th rounder keeper
    -Bargaini as a 2nd rounder keeper
    -Joe Johnson as a 3rd rounder keeper
    -Bogut as a 3rd rounder keeper
    -Coron Butler as a 5th rounder keeper
    -DJ Augustine as a 1st rounder

    I traded Butler and Auguistine to a guy with a deep team, gearing up for the playoffs for Jared Dudley who was an 11th round keeper. I then traded Bargaini and Joe Johnson for Mike Conley, and Conley was a 7th rounder. I thought I did pretty well on value with both.

    I then searched the waiver wire and picked up Jeff Green, who was an 8th rounder to make my 5th keeper hoping he will be back next year.

    That leaves me with these keepers

    Harden 9th round keeper
    Conley 7th round keeper
    Dudley 11th round keeper
    Bogut 3rd round keeper
    Green 8th round keeper

    So how did I do? I figure that’s a pretty decent young core for the value and I can probably add a couple players like Bargaini and Gerald Wallace or maybe an Anthony Davis with my 1st and 2nd round picks when we redraft. Got any idea's on who I should target or what I should do with Bogut? He seems like a decent value in the 3rd round and he was not movable really while injured.

    Thanks

      • That's fair, but I think I'm a long ways from making the playoffs unfortuantly either way, even with Joe Johnson and Bargaini. Clearly a rebuilding process. I wanted to see what I could get opening up a 2nd round pick for next year. My rational was a couple things.

        -I expect Joe Johnson to start declining the next couple years, and maybe even be amnestied next year. His role could change if so, and Bargaini is only getting 20 because Toranto is so bad, and he does little else. Conely is young and good on a good team, makes me feel better and I'm building for 2 years out when he will be in his prime.

        ESPN currently have them rated

        #40 Joe Johnson
        #51 Conley
        #65 Bargaini

        Looking around, I'm thinking with that open draft pick I can get a top 60 player anyway in a redraft.

        It also allowed me to take a chance on Jeff Green as an 8th rounder keeper. I think Boston is going to unload some of their stars and he might come back and be a big part of their rebuilding team. I need a move like that to pay off for me so I wanted to take the chance there on a guy that was 25 that could be averaging 15ppg as an 8th rounder. We'll see.
