    • Davis, he will bea beast for years. (he's FG and Ft % is great for a big) Answer mine "Plz rate my team".

    • Is this h-2-h or roto?
      Honestly if this were my decision I would definitely be basing it on who the rest of my keepers were.
      But, without knowing your other keepers this comes down to either Anthony Davis or Nicholas Batum for me. And since they are both pretty much early 2nd round options in standard leagues, I'd feel comfortable taking whichever one fit best with my other keepers. Do you want someone that is SG,SF eligible who is a little injury prone, but can really contribute in about 7 of the 9 main categories? Or do you want a PF,C eligible player who is primed for a huge year and an increase in stats across the board, but isn't 100% proven yet, but also had respectable averages last year of 13/8 with a steal and nearly 2 blocks per game with FT% that won't instantly kill your team?
      But I'll also add in that I've never participated in an auction draft based league. I understand the concept of it but without playing in 1, I don't really know if the $10 difference between Davis and Batum is enough to sway your decision?
      Good luck!

      • 10 is quite a bit that is basically a top 75 pick like kyle lowry/jeff green in standard leagues. I would guess money is a little more plentiful as people are generally going to keep players at good values. That said I would definitely keep batum just based on value. Parker is pretty tempting at 6 though.
