Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
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?
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?
