    Huge trade to get Kobe and David West, should I?

    I'm in a 12-team H2H auction keeper league (3 years, 3 keepers, $200 draft budget) and am currently 2nd. There's a huge gap between me and the 1st place team but he's been barely winning recently and if I can add to my team, I think I can win. In this league, 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've been discussing a trade for West and then we got to talking about Kobe so I got a deal where I could get both so wondering what you guys think. Note that 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 on the table with players and their keeping price:

    Trade 1
    I get: Kobe + David West (keeping price $7)
    I give up: Kendrick Perkins (next year's Yahoo price) + Kosta Koufos (next year's Yahoo price) + $15 cash exception
    Note: I didn't include Kobe's price because part of the deal was that I agree to not keep Kobe which I agree with since he cost $54 and I get him for a much cheaper price for a huge shot at the title

    Trade 2 (original deal)
    I get: David West (keeping price $7)
    I give up: Kendrick Perkins (next year's Yahoo price) + $5 cash

    I like both trades for the cost and while trade 1 has me losing more cash and I can't keep Kobe, I'm getting one of the best shooters in the game and a huge boost to my title chances. I can always bid for him during next year's draft after all. So is either trade good for me? and which one do you like better?

    Thank You!
