I am in a 14 team league with 7 cats (no %'s)
I gave up Brandon Jennings, and Roy Hibbert
And I received Derick Rose then picked up Bismack Biyombo to make up for Hibberts Boards and blocks.
I am so happy. Does anyone have concerns with this....?
Even though Biyombo has tremendous upside, his talent is SO raw, that it will take more than the rest of this season for him to have any consistent value in anything besides blocks. Sure he can score or rebound nicely from game to game, but not consistently like Hibbert.
Although D-Rose is an elite PG and Jennings has been struggling a bit since his hot start, they are still fairly close. Edge goes to D-Rose, but not by a margin of Roy Hibbert.
In a 14 team league you got a small upgrade at PG and a HUGE downgrade at Center. Doesn't make sense to me.

Thanks for all the replies everyone. But I disagree with the majority.
In a 14 team league it is crucial to get 2 for 1 specials. The reason why is that there will always be free agents who will step up their game. I am first in my league cuz I made 2 for 1 specials and got D.Howard and K.Lowry. I had 4 empty slots with garbage players and watched the transaction trends like crazy. I managed to pick up Pekovic, Brooks, Blatche, and Knight. Solid make up for what I lost.
In a 14 team league these guys make a much bigger difference than in a 10 team league.
My point is, I love this deal cuz I have an extra slot to pick up the next "Jeremy Lin" (I was too slow to get him, darn)
yeah you gave up a little too much. Chicago is trying to win a championship and to win Rose can't shoulder the load hence this season will be practice for the playoffs where they step up as a team to win. he WILL take over when he has(38pts-12ast-3-3-3...) to but that will probaly by 4 times a month (if your lucky) which is exactly what you can get out of jennings. and hibbert is border lone a top 5 center imo that is under acheiving and is heating up. BAD TRADE but I've seen worst. I had to veto LIN for Griffin trade last week.... HOLLA!!!!
if you have a ton of serviceable players on your team then it is a good deal. you basically upgraded jennings at the cost of a decent player, but now you have the option to pick up free agents based on play as well.
Yea I have to agree with the last guy...in a 14 cat league, depth is everything...
in a 10 man league..2 for 1 trades to trade up is a no brainer... in a 12 man league..it really depends on the trade..but in a 14 man league...you should be the one looking for good 1 for 2 trades...
I would say the other guy got the better end of this deal
Brandon Jennings has stunk it up without Gooden. He needs a quality big to take some pressure off him.
It's a good trade, but Biyombo will kill your FT% (takes like 4-5 a game, and barely makes 1-2 most nights)
