Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
If you were in a keeper league and HAD to keep Dwight Howard, and you had 2 more spaces available, which one of these guys would you choose?
Brook Lopez : FG 52%, FT 76%, 19 PTS, 7 REBS, 1.0 AST, 0.5 STL, 2.1 BLK, .545 A/TO
(great scorer with nice %'s, and shot blocker, much improved rebounder but still not dominant in that category. Very little in the assist and A/TO department, not much for steals. Center only eligible.)
Demarcus Cousins : FG 46%, FT 74%, 17 PTS, 10 REBS, 2.7 AST, 1.5 STL, .7 BLK, .887 A/TO
(Lots of off court issues. Has been known as high volume/low % shooter, but is improving. Nice FT% for a big man. Nice assists for a big man. Lacking in the blocks department. PF AND C eligible.)
Nikola Vucevic: FG 52%, FT 68%, 13 PTS, 12 REBS, 1.8 AST, 0.8 STL, 1.0 BLK, 1.039 A/TO
(Nice FG%, worse FT% but not horrible. Less of a scorer than the 1st two, but room to improve. Better rebounder than the 1st two. Not bad with blocks, but could use improvement. Has never had more than 2 in a game I believe. Better A/TO ratio than the 1st two. Has proven himself the least, but also has potential to grow in Orlando.)
Andre Drummond: FG 60%, FT 34%, 7.5 PTS, 7.5 REBS, 0.5 AST, 0.9 STL, 1.6 BLK, .583 A/TO
(Insane FG%, embarrassing FT%. Very solid numbers for limited minutes, HUGE upside. Not a good passer, so AST and A/TO suffer. Is his unproven potential to impove with more minutes enough to choose him over the others?)
I'm thinking of going with Lopez and Cousins. But Vucevic is a definite possibility. BUT, some people have been suggesting I keep Drummond over those guys. I know his FT% doesn't matter with Howard on my squad. But even with all his upside, I find it hard to keep him based on potential, and give up on players who have already proven themselves.

Id Take Vucevic.The Kings are a mess. Relocation posibility, Keith smart erradic minutes, wil be fired probably, that team is in shambles. Vucevic is a very good pick n roll player. He put up 6 20/20s and one 30/20 this season. who does that? dwight is the only one capable. Vucevic also gets you ast, blks, stls for a big man better than cousins consistently.
