    who wins this trade?

    I give Kemba Walker, Jamal Crawford and Kirk Hinrich for Dwayne Wade, Ty Lawson & Trevor Ariza. It looks like I may have the upper hand but walker and crawford are both having great seasons.....

    • That's a very tough call but I think I'd pull the trigger. It would be tough to part with Walker since he is having an amazing season, but D-Wade is elite (assuming health) and Ty Lawson really has no where to go but up. Crawford is solid, but his value really only lies in points and threes. He doesn't provide much else, so if your league is 9-cat or higher his value is overly inflated.

      Even better for you would be to get someone else instead of Ariza. I know Hinrich and Ariza are just throw-ins in this deal and neither has much relevance, but Ariza kills your FG% and no longer produces steals and assists at an elite level like he did a couple of years ago. He hurts teams more than helps in my opinion, however even if he's still left in I'd probably do this deal.

    • In my opinion, if Lawson can get his health and confidence back, then that side will end up with more value.
      But if Lawson continues his struggle all year, I'd actually rather hae the Walker/Crawford side. But you also have to consider if Billups/Hill will actually cut into Crawford's minutes/shot attempts/ overall production.
