    Trade for D Howard?

    His owner is motivated to move him on the cheap with his fantasy playoff hopes going down the drain. Do I make a lowball offer with any of my guys who has me on a 7 week win streak and in 1st and who should I if I did?

    J Teague
    D Wade
    DeRozan
    Parsons
    T Thompson
    KG
    Horford
    Ibaka
    Hibbert
    Drummond
    Faried
    T Young
    J Butler

    Can pretty much rule out that I probably won't trade a G with my lack of depth and he doesn't go for points. Young is hurt and Butler is a fringe player. He already offered Faried and Drummond for Howard which no way I do that deal. Thinking my best move would be to not even consider a deal?

    • honestly I think he would do you more harm than good...you have a decent core of bigs right now and Howard will likely miss more games. either due to injury or LA eliminated...the only way it could make sense is if you are in a H2H league, pretty sure you're making the playoffs and preparing for a "win 5" strategy which in that case it would be time to start dumping guards for bigs..

      • I'm in a 12 team 9 cat H2H league. And yes, my win 5 is FG% Pts Reb Stl and Blk. Depending on the team I usually keep turnovers and assists fairly competive too. The guy with Howard essentially has the same strategy except replace points with turnovers and he pretty much punts all other categories the the point he has 0 wins in FT%, 3pt, and just 1 win in points 2wins in assists. He likely will be looking for a big man in return so guessing probably not in my best interest to make a deal and let him continue to crash and burn in the standings.
