    Which player would you drop to draft a rookie next year?

    18 team h-2-h 12 category Dynasty league (Standard 9 plus FGM and FTM, Rebs split into O and D Reb).
    I know my roster isn't full of superstars (no 18 team dynasty roster is) but I also am having a hard time considering which player to drop in order to draft a top 3 rookie next year?
    PG: Kyle Lowry
    SG: Ben McLemore
    SF: Jeff Green
    PF: Jared Sullinger
    C: Dwight Howard
    Util: Isaiah Thomas
    Util: Michael Carter-Williams
    Patrick Beverley
    Danilo Gallinari
    Harrison Barnes
    Mason Plumlee
    Timofey Mozgov

    I will have the 3rd overall pick in the rookie draft next year ( I took over this team mid-way through this season and have been trying to build for the future).

    I've liked Mozgov for a long time now, and now that he's finally putting up decent numbers for this size league, I'm hesitant to get rid of him, especially since Sully doesn't get many blocks, and Plumlee isn't proven yet.

    Harrison Barnes has fallen off lately, but still has HUGE potential.
    Danillo Galinari was out all season, but when healthy he can be a great asset.
    Patrick Beverley doesn't rack up the assists, but produces enough everywhere else to be valuable, even on a team with Jeremy Lin and James Harden controlling hte ball a lot.
    Mason Plumlee hasn't seen consistent big minutes, but has shown glimpses of his potential!
    McLemore and Green both have their downsides but have too much name value to simply drop in this deep league.

    • I'd probably drop Tinafey Mozgov. He should not get much minutes next season when McGee and Hickson are healthy. Plumlee would be my next choice, but he has some keeper appeal since Garnett may retire soon and Lopez is so injury prone

      • Thanks. I agree that Mozgov is probably my most droppable player, but with how well he's played in an inconsistent role and the fact that Hickson isn't really a true center as much as teams try to make him one, and the emergence of Faried at the PF position and that Hickson may not even be recovered from his knee injury to start next season, and McGee being rusty/ out of shape from so much time off and that even when healthy he hasn't really proven he is quite the star they are hyping him up to be, I don't see why Mozgov would have any smaller of a role next year than he has this year. And he's not flashy but for a deep 18 team league he's still valuable.
        So I'm not disagreeing with you, I'm just pointing out why it's not an easy call for me to make.
        I do disagree with Plumlee though. There are a minimum of 3 other players I'd drop before him. His PER 36 stats of 14 points 63% from the field and 8.6 rebs to go with nearly 1.5 steals and 2 blocks per game are VERY appealing for such a young athletic player.
        But thanks for your reply, I'm definitely leaning towards dropping Mozgov, especially if Embiid declares for the draft and is available at #3.
