I only really veto trades if there's collusion or obvious someone is doing a friend a 'favour'.
I'm a firm believer if the person/side that people are vetoing it for - ie "Harrell isn't on Klay's level" - but the person who offered it is on the 'inferior' side and they proposed it, then it should stand. It's not on us to 'save' someone from a trade we think they're getting screwed in, when THEY proposed the deal and are happy with it.
It's not really that lop-sided - would be more even in H2H, but even in roto, Harrell has him (easily) in FG%, REB, BLK. AST/STL are a wash (surprisingly), Klay obviously creams him in PTS, 3PT, FT%. Couple that with blocks being the hardest stat to find (1.8 per), along with a big that gets you a steal a game and is 4 years younger. Klay is better now, no argument there.
Maybe add a pick swap to even it out? Something like a 1st for a 3rd?
I guess looking at batsmasher's standing rankings, being 1st in 3s and high in points, but lower in %s, boards and blocks, combined with Klay's %s dropping this year, it's not as lopsided a trade or as bad of trade as it first looks, particularly if batsmasher proposed it.
Yeah I'm high in 3s and Klay is the only player other than PG who doesn't fit my team age wise.
Trade value is tough in this league because some people (like me) already have their 8 keepers. It means I can't receive more keepers than I send.
Sure wheezy could add someone like LouWill to this deal but unless I trade another keeper away he'd only be a rental for this season.
Which leaves us adding a pick swap to the deal. And pick swaps don't come cheap - everyone thinks their first rounder is worth an arm and a leg.
