In the two leagues I'm in, I've made 4 total trades...and I personally think I came out on top in all of them believe it or not...feel free to disagree.
Gave away Lin
Obvious winner here.
Gave away Amare and Matthews
Got Batum and Conley
(this one is questionable as Batum has been slumping and Matthews was on the bench at the time of the trade, but with Amare out I think I'm still in the positive here)
and League 2
Gave Kobe, Boozer, Harris
Got Monroe, David Lee, Iguodala
Gave Nash, Beasley
Got Felton, Irving, and Tony Allen
In my 2nd league, I drafted very poorly and desperately needed the depth. I started the league losing my first 2 weeks, and haven't lost a week since the trade. In both leagues there are no %'s and rebounding is 3 categories.

Worst....also drafted Devin Harris, took him around the 7th but like I mentioned I ended up somehow dealing him in the trade using Kobe as bait....
Also, holding both Baron Davis and Rip Hamilton in the beginning of the season for as long as I did definitely caused me to lose some categories. I eventually cut ties, but if I could do it again it would have been a lot sooner.
If D Rose comes back next week for fantasy playoffs and can put up numbers that he usually does when healthy, then I don't think that 2nd trade was the best move for you. Rose is better than Westbrook when healthy, more assists, less TO's. And while Smith is better than Boozer, Rondo has more value than Johson to me. His best stats are harder to come by than Johnson's best stats.
My best moves were:
Traded Carmelo and Korver and got J Smith and Wes Matthews who I traded for Ray Allen.
So I started out with Melo/Korver and ended with Smith/Allen

Best moves: Drafted Ryan Anderson in the last round of one of my drafts, picked up Dragic the moment Lowry got sick, traded D-will Gallo and Amare for LeBron in another.
Worst: Didn't trade Wesley Mathews for Nick Young at the start of the season, Didn't trade Gallo for Iggy before he got injured, took D12 instead of Kobe in the first round of one draft where points are worth twice the fantasy points more than any other stat
