Trade Iggy/Jrich for Lawson/Garnett? 

Post#1 » by twistedude » Sat Nov 17, 2012 11:11 am

14 team yahoo Roto league, standard 9 categories. I've been offered the following deal:

I give: Andre Iguoudala, Jason Richardson

I get: Ty Lawson, Kevin Garnett

I'm very tempted because I'm getting a pretty significant discount off Lawson and Garnett's draft day value, but Lawson has had a slow start. Do you think this is a good deal for my team? Why or why not?

MY TEAM:

PG: Kyrie, Lowry
SG: Tyreke, JRich, Beal
SF: Iggy, Korver
PF: Millsap, West
C: Aldridge, Jordan
BN: Valanciunus, Battier, Love

You get the best player, you give the worst (by far) in J-Rich. I can't believe you're still considering this - the other guy must be some AI fanatic... Ty Lawson is and will be at least top 10 PG for this season, whatever (barring serious injury) happens. Healthy KG is Top 40 material.
Take it and invite your friends to celebrate this one! :)

It's a fair trade but I think Iggy is the best player in the deal

I don't think Jrich plays this well all season

I personally think you get the two best players it the deal so it's a no brainer. Lawson can't be this bad all year and KG is coming off back to back top 15 years. Iggy's been solid but it's not like he's lighting the world on fire. Good buy low on Lawson and sell high on Richardson.
