    Dynasty: Paul George - Trade/Keep?

    10 team, H-H Dynasty

    I'm one of the unfortunate to have PG. My team is decent enough to compete with or without him. Obviously, making a trade will up my chances this year. If I deal him now, I risk downgrading a key piece of my roster for the next 6-8 years. The alternative is George never coming back full strength and I'm getting out now. What to do?

    I could deal PG for a guy like Wade or Dirk, plus a young guy. That would keep me competitive now, plus give me a chance to recoup my future. Or I could go after a younger wing that is a mid-round value right now. I need help in the wings and I need a true C.

    Nowitzki, plus
    Wade, plus
    Thad Young
    Chandler Parsons
    Andre Drummond

    • I'm in a very similar situation - owning George in a dynasty league. I won't be sending offers to try and trade PG. I've built a very good team trading FOR injured players at reduced values. I got Kevin Love when he broke his hand two years ago, Dwayne Wade this past year (for basically nothing), and Anthony Davis at a slightly reduced value during on of his injury issues.

      You're trying to build an every year contender. Don't fall into a one-year trap.

      To note, I also have guys like Curry, Wall, Drummond, Hayward, Giannis, and more on this team, so while the loss of PG hurts, it doesn't kill my team.

      Of the guys you mentioned as trade targets, the only one I'd consider is Drummond.
