    Give Faried for AL Horford?

    i was offered al horford and I'd give up faried. im thinkin of doin it because their stats match up but horford gets more assists and minutes. and the hawks dont have as many offensive options as the nuggets do. is this a good trade for me?

    10 ppl in league, categories: 3pt, pts, reb, ast, stl, blk, TO
    my roster:
    Damian Lilliard
    Steve Nash
    lou williams
    monta ellis
    kevin martin
    Jared Dudley
    gallinari
    josh smith
    ibaka
    kenneth faried TRADE 4 Horford?

    • I'd take Horford over Faried for sure. While I don't think it is quite as a non brainer decision as others have suggested, I do think it's a pretty simple decision.

      Horford's FG% is slightly lower, but I'd take his higher volume 53% over Faried's lower volume 55%.
      While Faried's 60% FT's are higher than Horford's, his higher volume hurts, and Horford is a better shooter than that, his % is more likely to increase.
      Horford is the significantly better scorer. Rebounds are basically even. Horford's assists are a big difference and are a nice asset from a big man. Their defensive stats are basically the same, as well as TO's.

      So, going by a purely statistical standpoint, Horford is the better overall option. Horford has a higher margin of value in the categories that are different.
      Going by a real life standpoint, I still like Horford more. If anything, I would expect Horford has the higher chance of his numbers going up than Faried does... Not to mention a trade of Josh Smith out of Atlanta (not likely, but still possible) could open up the door for Horford to become even closer to a 20 and 10 type player.

    • 2 things don't make sense here.

      Why would the other guy want to give up Horford for Faried?

      Why are you here asking us rather than pressing accept right away?
