    Trading for better playoff schedule?

    I am in a 12 team h-2-h league. I'm currently in 1st place up 7.5 games from 2nd place team, and up 12 games over 3rd place team.
    Anything can happen but I'm very confident I will finish 1st or at the very least 2nd place and get a 1st round bye.

    I own Danilo Gallianri (SF) who has a fairly week playoff schedule. 3-3-5 in weeks 22-24.
    I'm wondering if it is worth it to trade him for someone with pretty similar value, but that has maybe 1 or 2 extra games in the playoffs?

    For example:
    Wessley Matthews has 1 extra game in the 2nd round
    Chandler Parsons has 1 extra game in the 2nd round
    Paul Pierce has 1 extra game in 1st and in 2nd rounds.
    Klay Thompson has same schedule
    Ersan Ilyasova has 1 extra game in 2nd round and 1 extra in 3rd round.

    Assuming I could pull off any of those trades (might have to throw in my player I use for streaming), would you make any of those moves?

    My only other player with a weak schedule is Serge Ibaka, but even if I could trade him for someone with 1 or 2 more games, unless it's Larry Sanders I doubt it would be worth it since Ibaka blocks so many shots.
    Now that I think about it, since this is a non-keeper league and Larry Sanders has 2 extra games during playoffs, I wonder if it would make sense to trade Ibaka for him if I could. Maybe Ibaka's name recognition is worth more to the other guy than Sanders?

    • 1 offer I was thinking about was:
      Give Galinari and Tobias Harris
      Ilyasova and Jeff Green

      Gallo is ranked much higher than Ilyasova, but I'd be upgrading both player's playoff schedules, and I personally don't think Harris can keep up his current production for much longer.
      In your opinion do you think I still lose this trade? Or is gaining playoff games and selling high on a hot player who was a FA a week ago smart?
