Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I was offered Dragic & Batum for Nash and K.Thompson.
I wouldn't mind getting a bigger contributor at the PG position but losing KThompson for Batum at this point in the season I feel is too huge a risk.. what do you think?
12 team standard h2h - 9cats
PGs: Lillard, Nash, Wall
SG\SF: Paul George, Klay Thompson, Ginobili, Evan Turner, Delfino
PF\C: Kirilenko, Jamison, Monroe, Sanders, Ibaka
I think I would pull the trigger on that. I predicted that Dragic would have a strong second half, and I've been right so far. I can see him continuing this till the end of the season. He's an upgrade over Nash for sure.
Thompson's points and 3PT are definitely great, but Batum is so much of a better all-around player. Batum has been slumping quite a bit, but he'll get out of it soon. Batum started off strong this season and I can't see why he wouldn't return back to form. I think this is a perfect buy low opportunity on Batum.
So yes, if you are getting Dragic and Batum, I would do that trade.
