Commissioner Corner Message Board
Someone is getting heated over this trade. Is it really that unfair?
Team A gets: LaMarcus Aldridge and George Hill
Team B gets: Dwight Howard, Luol Deng, and Reggie Jackson
Team A is in 6th and dead last in FT%
Team B is 8 GB of playoff spot and second to last in FT%
If it's a keeper league, why WOULDN'T draft pick trades be a viable trade piece??? I run two leagues w/ draft pick trading and am in two more that involve them. Hell, in one league, teams will clamor to acquire a chance to get a top pick, especially with the upcoming draft class. Not a fan of guys being the trade police in keeper leagues and dictating to others how they should build their team for the long haul. Imo, it brings and added element and makes it more realistic. Those guys need to get w/ the program.

IS this roster still available ? is this a h2h or roto league, how far out of playoffs are they ?
League has been running since 2007. I need one replacement for a manager who is quitting because of work issues. Trading of draft picks and trades between sports is allowed. Send me a message at dgunther1 at the yahoo place and I can send you more info. Serious managers only.
Never been an issue in my MLB pool. Huge issue in the NHL pool I run.
The issue managers have is they believe other managers that trade away their picks will not return. I don't see it that way...
Keep the draft picks trading option. The guy that won it last year did so because he traded me his forts round pick in this years draft for 3 closers. I wasn't winning and got an extra forts round pick. He won. Worth it in the end.
This is an old post, so you probably already took some action.
No question the trade is lopsided. What I would do as commish is:
1) Extend the trade review period (probably too late for that now)
2) Email both managers involved. Ask them to post messages to the message board explaining their rationale for the trade.
3) If they refuse to do this, or if their replies don't pass the "smell test", you can veto the trade with a clear conscience.
Wondering if anyone is part of a dynasty/keeper league that allows draft picks to be traded?
My league has had a few proposed trades involving the exchange of draft picks that have been vetoed due to picks being involved.
I would like to keep the draft pick trading option moving forward because I feel it keeps managers invested in their lineups and can also produce some interesting decisions for managers of contending teams.
I was wondering if there are any provisions in your respective leagues involving trades so that there are no accusations of collusion and that the trades do not impact the following year's draft too much.
Would love to hear any thoughts. Thanks
I have a couple teams not getting their lineups changed and would like a couple new managers to take over these squads.

Need an ACTIVE manager for a replacement. Check out the league settings and the team (Hoops there it is) at
The team has suffered from inactive management, so this year is pretty much over with, but next year is promising with Love, Bledsoe Westbrook, Lance Stephenson Keeper price settings discourage "top performing" keepers this year, and incentivize keeper speculation. I bring this up since if I like your profile, and you want to join the league, I will trade you Giannis (currently on my team) for whoever you want to drop. 15 player rosters so you have the roster space to hang on to speculative players.
