    Glen Davis for Tristan Thompson?

    I have Glen Davis right now and I am not sure if I should let him go for Tristan Thompson.

    Just dropped Jeff Green for Gerald Green

    • First off: Dropping Jeff Green for Gerald Green was absolutely the right move. Gerald returned huge value with big minutes last year, and I think Granger is gonna be missing a lot of time this year.

      I really like TT, who else could you drop besides big baby to get him? His FT% is pretty bad though, something to keep in mind when weighing that decision.

    • I like Thompson's upside more than Big Baby's. Davis will score a lot more consistently I think, but Thompson should be a better source or rebounds and blocks.

      • I'm also not sure I like the move dropping Green for Green. I know Rotoworld recommended it, and it won't make or break your season either way, but... Jeff Green had 1 bad game, it's not like he's struggled through 2/3rds of a season, it was 1 night. He dominated in preseason (I know you can't take too much out of that, besides he's heatlhy and conditioned) and Doc loves him. He should see 30MPG wether he comes off the bench or not. And on nights where Brandon Bass isn't on fire, Green could be the focal point. Actually, he should be the focal point of hte 2nd unit more nights than not.
        While Gerald Green has great upside, puts up awesome per-minute numbers, and seems to have a nice opportunity right now, nobody knows the extent of Granger's injury. That's why I hate the term "out indefinitely". That doesn't mean out for the season, it just means they don't have a timetable. He very well could need surgery and be out for the season, OR he could recover, be back in a week and a half, and Gerald Green would go back to being the 3rd option.

        But I don't blame you for making the change, and it really could work out highly in your favor, that is just what my personaly reasoning would be for not doing it.
