Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'm in a 12-team H2H auction keeper league (3 years, 3 keepers, $200 draft budget) and am currently 5th (will be 3rd tomorrow according to stat-tracker) however there is a huge gap between the 1st place team and everyone else so I want to rebuild for next year while being somewhat competitive. You can keep a player for the price he was drafted for (that amount is reduced from auction draft budget next year) and if you have a player who was never drafted, you can keep him for Yahoo's default price for him next year. I want to trade CP3 because I likely won't keep him as his cost is too high ($73) and not worth it imo...so I'm looking to trade for potential next year. We also have cash exceptions in this league where managers can offer cash in next year's auction draft. Here are a couple of offers I'm discussing:
I get: Ty Lawson ($39) + Ilyasova ($11) + $10 cash exception
I give up: CP3 ($73) + Koufos (next year's Yahoo price)
I get: Kyrie Irving ($47) and give up: CP3 ($73)
I like both trades due to the upside of the players for their cost (except Lawson but the cash exception meaning I can keep Ilyasova for almost free makes up for it). What do you guys think though? Are both trades good for me?
BQ: I own Pau Gasol ($37), is he worth stashing for either the playoffs or next season as a keeper or should I drop him?
I think I like trade #2. You're gonna free up $26 for next year which would allow you to keep Gasol as a stash for the equivalent of basically $11. You'd be adding certain depth for next year while still staying competitive for this year. The Cavs are gonna continue to build around Kyrie and a healthy Gasol may end up getting showcased on a lackluster team due to the possibility of an offseason move, which would elevate him back to stud status.
trading cp3 just so you can keep ilyasova for free is pretty weak, theres gotta be better options. i dont mind getting kyrie if thats a price you like for him as a keeper. overall i feel like you can do better though

well i also get back ty lawson who's been playing well and i'm unsure if i should keep ilyasova but it would be an idea. if you didn't like the first trade though, is there anything i can do to improve it? (ie ask for an upgrade over either ilyasova or lawson, or maybe ask for more cash?)
