    How to improve Keepers and still win THIS year?

    12 team h-2-h 9 category league.
    Currently in 4th place, playoffs start next week.
    We keep 5 players, I have more than 5 worth keeping, am trying to think of some trades that would upgrade my 5 keepers without effecting my chances of winning it all this year.
    So far I've only been able to come up with offers that would improve my keepers but lessen my chance of winning this season.

    My 5 keepers if I HAD to choose today:
    1) Goran Dragic
    2) Mike Conley
    3) Dwight Howard
    4) Brook Lopez
    5) Demarcus Cousins

    My other players I view as keeper worthy or borerline keeper worthy:
    Nikola Vucevic
    Andre Drummond
    Thaddeus Young
    OJ Mayo

    For example, I was thinking of offering Vucevic and Drummond for Serge Ibaka to a team that's out of the playoffs. But with little available on the FA list I'm not sure if I could still compete this year with that move.
    Also was considering combining Dragic or Conley with Lopez or Cousins for a top 5 PG, and then keeping Vucevic.... For example (not that this would be accepted) Conley/Cousins for Westbrook. Changing my keepers to
    Dragic, Westbrook, Howard, Lopez, Vucevic.

    Any specific ideas on how to take advantage of having more than 5 keeper worthy players, without mailing it in this year just before playoffs start? Or should I just stick with what's been working for me, and just pick 5 of my guys to keep?

    Total Roster:
    Dragic, Conley, I Thomas
    Mayo, Redick, D Harris
    Harkless, Miles, T Young
    Vucevic, Drummond, Cousins
    Howard, B Lopez, R Lopez
