Who would you rather have rest of season:
In a 16 team 9 category h-2-h league, my team is struggling. I'm currently in 14th. Been in last all year, but my team is really starting to turn it around last few weeks. If I get Bynum back and he actually plays well, I might actually have a shot at sneaking into the 8th playoff spot.
BUT, instead of waiting it out, I wan't to make a trade. I'm trying to decide between Kawhi Leonard (SG,SF current yahoo ranking 29) OR Kyle Korver (SG,SF current yahoo ranking 24).
Which one would you guess is going to have the better 2nd half of the season? The injury prone Korver who has been playing a little above his abilities lately, but locked in for heavy minutes barring a trade? Or Kawhi Leonard who has finally started playing like I thought he was capable of, but plays for Popp who is very unpredictable, and will always have his value capped with Ginobili on the team?
Korver has played better overall this season, but I still don't fully trust him. My other SG,SF's are Wes Matthews and Courtney Lee.
Also, if I trade 1 of those two guys for a PF/C, and possibly package them with someone like Kaman, Koufos or Ramon Sessions, who should I target? Someone just put Vucevic on the trading block, and going by Yahoo rankings that would be a fair deal, but I'm not sure he'll go for it.
Korver is the player I'd rather have of those two. He's a three point machine and is locked into ATL's game plan right now. I think Kawhi definitely has more upside, but he plays for Poppovich. That said you wouldn't be losing much if you went either way. With Korver you're gambling on him staying healthy, with Kawhi you're gambling on Pop's whims. Just depends on how much you like Kawhi's upside.
If you can pull off a deal for Vucevic, do it. He has zero competition at the C position in Orlando and should be balling for the rest of the season. I imagine you'll have to sweeten the deal and add someone with either Korver or Kawhi to get him though. The only reason Vucevic is low on any ranking is cause his beginning of the season numbers are low, he is producing higher than he is ranked on the season right now.
