No way in hell would I propose this trade if I were you. I think if it were just KD for John Wall, Vucevic, and Marshall, that might be more reasonable. But I agree with David Vest. You're probably better off leaving KD out of it all together. Keep Calderon. Try Green for Marshall like DV suggested.

I've got Favors and I'm holding him. But Leonard is expected to play tonight, so if he's on your wire, I'd #$%$ him up quickly. Preferably you should drop someone else besides Favors. Maybe someone who isn't producing for you. But if you're desperate, and you have absolutely no one else you want to cut, then I guess go ahead and do it. Keep in mind though, Favors is still technically day to day, and for all we know he could play tomorrow when the Jazz return home. Or Monday.

Agreed. I have both iT2 and Hawes on my team, and IT2 is waaaaaaay better. Especially since there are trade rumors circling around Hawes, and he loses value if he goes elsewhere. But even if he does stay in Philly, no way is this a good trade. If I were the Hawes owner in your league, and you offered me, I'd quickly accept it before you changed your mind, and laugh all the way to the playoffs.

Well, I don't care what his matchup is two weeks from now. Manning will be back and he'll be dropped.
I was thinking Pryor too, but I was hesitant because he really did nothing passing the ball yesterday. Other than that highlight 93 yard run, he kind of sucked. But, the Philly Def does kind of suck as well. So you guys might be right.
Don't have a backup QB on the roster, seeing as how I'll only need one for week 9 while Manning has a bye.
Who would you pick up from this bunch:
Ben Rothlesiberger (@NE), Case Keenum (vs. Ind) Terrelle Pryor (vs. Phillie), Jason Campbell (@ Bal.) Jake Locker (@ St. Louis)

Sorry, man. Only had one spot left and SY United took it. I'll keep your email around though in case someone else bails. Already had one guy bail on me this weekend, which is why I even needed one more spot to begin with.

Check that. The team manager with the 5th spot has offered to swap with the new team manager. So you could have your choice of the 12th or 5th draft spot.

Actually, I'm not taking Anthony Davis either. Last year I narrowly missed drafting him in the 4th and was glad I did, because he was not even worth a 4th round pick. Its all well and good he's having a great pre-season, but until I see consistent first/second round type numbers from him in the regular season, which I have not yet, then I'm not taking him there. Someone else can have him.

Need one more manager for this league! We had one who bailed. He drew the 12th pick in the draft randomizer, so the new team will get that spot. Email above if you want in. First come first serve.

Wouldn't touch Andrew Bynum with a ten foot pole. Russel Westbrook's price is too high for as much time is he's going to miss, and with the uncernaity if he'll even be as good. Basically any injured players are on my do not draft list. Also old guys. No Ray Allen. Pretty much no one on the Nets except maybe Derron Williams for his assists. But as for the rest of the Nets- Pierce, Garnett, etc. not only are they all past their prime, but there are too many mouths to feed on that team.
Also, I will not be drafting Marc Gasol or Serge Ibaka, because they'll be long gone before I'd be willing to draft them. To me those guys are 4th or 5th round picks. What the hub bub is about with them I will never figure out.

Oh, and I should mention that before a manager bailed, we did draft randomizer. The departing manager landed the 12th/13th picks. That will be the slot for the new manager. So if that's not your thing, this is not your league. Just FYI.

Need one more manager. League ID won't work. Yahoo keeps deleting my message every time I try to leave my email address in any form. Just post a reply and we'll get you in.

That looks like a great team, except for Jason Thompson, but he won't be a big deal to drop once the good free agents start to emerge. How the hell did you get Lebron and Al Jefferson both? I assume you would have had to been drafting 1st or 2nd to get Lebron, but then you wouldn't get to draft again to the end of the 2nd round. I've never seen AlJeff drop that far! Nice score.

Sorry man, you may have just missed the cut. Found one guy in a mock draft who wanted to join, and then tcoom above. That's the two I needed. I'll keep your email address around in case one of them fall through.

Marc Gasol. I really don't get his first round rankings. Why would I draft a Center who averages under 8 boards a game in the first round? He's a third or fourth round pick at the earliest, as far as I can tell. And there are probably at least 8 or 9 big men I'd take ahead of him.
Also, Anthony Davis. People who draft him in the late first/early second are drafting on anticipation, not on anything he's actually produced in the NBA. Way too risky for my tastes. I'll let someone else have him.
