Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

I agree with you Brandon but I don't think it's as one sided as you think IMO. I think Butler will balance out to top 20-30 by seasons end which is what Gay has been playing at all season. I actually like Brandon Knight more than Oladipo or Morris. Yes I've become a believer in him and he's playing at an early round value. I don't see him slowing down at all. Not that Morris & Oladipo aren't studs but if I had to choose one from the three I'd go for Knight. Now I may be putting a lot of stock in Augustin, but he's going to be a solid mid round player with upside the rest of the way despite last night's goose egg. Overall his value right now doesn't match Oladipo or Morris so the edge still goes to the side you'd be getting. But it is fair enough IMO.

Hbbert/Faried isn't really appealing enough for DJ but it doesn't hurt to try right? I managed to send Stephenson/Jabari for DJ early in the season. You may really have to try packaging someone other than Hibbert for this to have a chance though as he's been frustrating to own again.

I'd say for your team it's a good fit as you already have DeAndre Jordan. Faried is an on & off double double machine. He doesn't seem to click well with Shaw so his role is sporadic. I'm not a fan of my bigs not having defensive stats either with already mediocre FT%.

In your position I'd stay put. It's not like your team is bleeding out too much by holding him. Different story if you were fighting for a P/O spot

I'd take a flier on Galloway. I had such huge hopes for him in my league but ended up trading him as a necessary piece to complete a trade.

They've both been frustrating to own all season long, yet it really depends which headache you'd rather own.
I'd say if I had to choose I'd probably gamble on D-Will in the long run. There's no guarantee he'll even get his starting role at any point in the season, so there seems to more risk/upside with D-Will. I still think there's a decent chance he gets traded off to a team like Sacramento who thrives on taking bad contract big name players, but it may not happen til after the season for all we know.
Parker on the other hand is like D-Will who constantly keeps getting injured and/or "popped" I don't see as much upside with him, but he may be the more stable player to own if you're looking for a safer lower upside player. I think he'll eventually get a bit healthier along with more minutes in the long run and then play the Tony Parker basketball were all used to knowing and of course some random DNPs along the way.

I would at least wait for an official timetable tomorrow. If it is 6-8 weeks I probably would drop him as 1st seed. It really depends though if you think you can play it out and take on the risk then that's your choice. I don't really trust Brian Roberts as a ROS guy. I just think they're going to add another PG that will eventually start over him or may end up in a locked timeshare. Anyways Stephenson should be handling the ball more basically just making Roberts more of a spot up shooter. I'd say 12 pts 3.7 assists 2 boards less than a stl 1.4 treys is fair. That is if they dont end up adding another PG to their roster. Low end stats.

Oh I love this trade. Marc Gasol has been a 1st round talent and Matthews is an absolute stud. I don't even care which Barnes you got haha.
And the Magic players have a weak P/O schedule also something to keep in mind.

First of all it's a 10 team league with 80% of the teams making the P/O?! What's the fun in that? Haha.
Ok well it definitely isnt a pretty trade for the 10th place team. It almost sounds like he's given up at this point so it definitely does look suspicious. I can't say I'd veto it based on value alone, but collusion very possible. Maybe trades like THIS are the reason why he's in last place. If this was before the season started this would pass with flying colors. I'd def bring it up with the commish and other teams.

While you're here asking this question someone else has already taken Whiteside. This is an obvious answer. Kanter is barely worth a roster spot in standard leagues already.
Value wise who wins? I'm very aware Holiday is out 2-4 weeks. Is it even worth the risk taking Holiday? Considering this could be a aggravation to last year's major injury.

Brandon I have to disagree a bit. I love Sully! But Morris edges him in FG% from 4-6%. And his steals double that of Sullys. Although Sully does get more boards and similar numbers across the board but Morris is a lot more stable than Sully is imo. Brad Stevens rotations scare me a bit haha. I planned on drafting Sully but for that very reason I decided to skip him in that same round he was taken. I'd say you're comparing Morris who is a 3rd-4th round player to Sully who arguably could be 4th-6th I guess. So a few rounds up.

I was thinking that too but it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to me because there would be a chance he would not be ready for the actual NBA playoffs. If he opted for surgery now at least he would be ready by then.

That is quite unfortunate since Aldridge will be playing through it but it really is part of the game. I remember a few years ago Marc Gasol was declared "out for season" and came back 3 days later. Best pickup ever.
