I'd probably do that deal. They both have about the same level of risk/reward. Roll the dice on winning a trophy!

Call me crazy, but I'd keep Vucevic. All Day! Over #$%$ even. He's so overlooked and undervalued. He's also perfect for your situation in a Roto Keeper. DWade is old and busted, so you definitely don't want to trade for him! If you're concerned about Vucevic long term, you should try to package him with like DeAndre for a young, elite Big man instead of a washed up, score first guard. Think Anthony Davis, not that you'd get him, but that's along the lines of what I'd be trying in that league. Good Luck with it all!

Evans is marginally better than JJ, but there might be someone better for your Roto situation than either of those guys just chilling on Free Agency. An overlooked stat specialist perhaps? Have a look around first.

what's the trade? unless it's super ridiculous, just let it through. it isn't really your place to decide if their trade is good or not. and if they are willing to go to such lengths as to re-offer the same thing again, they both clearly want it. don't be the fantasy police.

This team is ideal for a manager looking for a dynasty project in a great league. This is the last team we've needed to replace, the original manager hasn't checked in since Dec 21 - in our league that doesn't even merit a warning, you're just replaced. The guy's been playing like a weekly league anyhow, so that doesn't cut it!
Here's the team:
PG Jarrett Jack
SG James Harden
G Nick Young
SF Paul Pierce
PF Dirk Nowitzki
F Glen Davis
C Josh McRoberts
C J.J. Hickson
Util Nate Wolters
Util Thaddeus Young
BN Kevin Martin
BN Jared Sullinger
BN Rodney Stuckey
BN Bradley Beal
BN Robin Lopez
It's currently the 8th place team. You could try to make a push, or you can rebuild. You've got options! Trades are probably your best bet either way. We keep 10, drop 5, and do a non snake draft every year.
Leave an email for contact, and also your yahoo player performance %. We'd prefer if you're over 60%

This is why Yahoo needs to make the Manager Ratings available publicly! What is the point of being able to rate other managers if we can't see said ratings?

This is absolutely a rebuild team, no two ways around it. Ideally, you're one of those managers so used to winning that you need a new challenge, like a rebuilding a bad team! That's how I got into this league two years ago, and now I'm co-commish. Still working on my own rebuild though. Anyhow, take a look at the roster for Team READ:
Jason Terry (Bkn - PG,SG)
Kobe Bryant (LAL - SG)
Manu Ginobili (SA - SG,SF)
Andrei Kirilenko (Bkn - SF,PF)
Nene Hilario (Was - PF,C)
Boris Diaw (SA - PF,C)
Nikola Pekovic (Min - C)
Spencer Hawes (Phi - C)
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Cha - SF)
Dorell Wright (Por - SG,SF)
Kyle Lowry (Tor - PG)
Amar'e Stoudemire (NY - PF,C)
Nikola Vucevic (Orl - PF,C)
Derrick Favors (Uta - PF,C)
Mo Williams (Por - PG,SG)
Pretty rough, huh? We keep 10, drop 5. We also have a non-snaking draft format - This team drafts 5th in every round. Personally, I'd say that the first order of business for anyone interested, would be to trade Kobe for youth/draft picks. That's all up to you, should you take over though.
