Agreed with Dillon. This analysis is terrible.
FT shooting: 75% is average, and has been in the NBA for the past 50 years. You don't punt a category by picking up a player who gives you average percentages.
FG shooting: 48% is above average. Lebron helps your shooting.
You can't "punt" 3s by picking a single player, and furthermore, at 1.3 a game, Lebron provides pretty solid production from 3.
As for turnovers...yes, he turns the ball over. Congrats, one of your four criticisms is valid. That's horrible.
On topic, if you're punting FT% and desperately need blocks and a drop in turnovers, yes. But even if you ignore FT%, Lebron is still the better player overall. He gives you such solid production in every countable stat.

Gotta show some un-love to Ariza. I thought he'd put up good scoring with nice percentages playing next to CP3. I was very, very wrong.
Is it fair to put guys like Curry, Wade, Kobe and Granger on this list? They were all drafted top 7, but aren't in the top 20. Not a huge disappointment, but still a letdown.

The only players you're being offered with any fantasy worth are Garnett and Hill, maybe Oden if you're in a deeeeeeep league. Yao and Walker will probably never again be worthwhile fantasy players. Shaq already isn't.
Ask for a LOT more. Jefferson or Amare are worth more than all of those guys combined. Some combination of Dwight/Gordon/Wall should make it happen.
Don't drop Afflalo. He puts up solid numbers everywhere, good 3s, and great percentages, low turnovers. Top 75 guy, easy.
I'd drop Davis if I was going to drop anyone - he's barely worth rostering , but I don't know how productive Roy will be when he comes back. He wasn't exactly stunning before the injury.
It's a lopsided trade, but I don't think it's veto worthy. I think it's just the first place guy doing what he's been doing - making smart decisions - and the last place guy doing what he's doing - making dumb ones.
Especially if there isn't any prior fishy behavior, I'd let it slide.
Curry is a much, much better player. He kills Calderon in every scoring-related stat and gets almost double the steals. You made out like a bandit.
Also, have you considered trading Dwight? You've got tons of good FT shooters, but I'm guessing that he's killing your percentages.
Not that you need the help. Your team is stacked.
Team B, by a lot.
Aldridge = Smith. Different contributions, but similar overall.
Martin > Johnson. They're comparable, but Johnson will get you 3 assists a game compared to Martin's 1 three. However, Martin's contributions at the FT line are sick.
Jefferson >>> Harrington. Jefferson is a top 30 player, Harrington isn't even top 100.

Because 8 other stats exist in fantasy basketball, and you lost out in almost all of them.
If you needed 3s, you could've just picked up a 3-pt specialist, not pulled off some huge trade that you got the raw end of the stick on for a small uptick in 3s.

Great trade. Westbrook is a stud. I'd say AK is a little better than Villanueva/Deng/Hill, but it's not a huge margin. Davis is a notch below any of those guys.
Any combination of Hill/Douglas/Turiaf/Barbosa is a good call. I'd lean towards Hill/Douglas, but any of those guys are sound.

I wouldn't. Even at his best, the only thing Davis does better is block shots. Coming back from injury, I doubt he'll do much of that. Stick with Humphries and the huge edge in rebounds.

Team 2 by a lot. Only lose out in pts and 3s; otherwise, huge edge in blocks and boards, decent edge in assists and steals.
Lawson is a big step below those other three; he just isn't getting the minutes of touches to make much fantasy impact.

I'd drop Dooling. You've also got a lot of injury prone players - Wade, Jennings, Ginobli, Wallace - so you might want to trade some of them if you can get good value in return.
Delfino is a nice pickup.

Chandler is getting 30+ minutes a game whether you're looking at the last week or the entire season, and the Thunder are an average team defensively. And none of this changes the fact that Chandler is much, much better than any of the players involved in the trade.
Agreed that Ryan Anderson is a good pickup; he's been plenty of minutes and looks since the trade. I'd personally go with Chandler; he's in a minor slump now, but he'll break through. Still, you can't go wrong with either.

You won big time. Chandler is top-25. Nelson and Humphries are comparable top-100 guys, and those other guys are barely worth rostering in most leagues. Well done.

Drop Hickson. Anderson is basically the same player but with a massive edge in 3's.
Go with Humphries for now, then check which stats you need when Camby returns. You definitely need the boards upgrade - I think Howard and Noah are your only good rebonders, but I'm guessing you're doing all right in points.
Anderson for Camby if Camby is healthy is reasonable call. But Camby's out for 3 weeks at least, probably longer.

It's a terrible trade. Felton and KG are both top-20 players. Young and Harris maybe crack the top 50. KG fills it up, Young only gives you scoring related stats. Felton is flat-out better than Harris in every way.
On second thought, don't worry about it. That trade would get vetoed in heartbeat.
