Tobias Harris was a stud for the magic last year when he got trade. Ilyasova has similar value but has been dealing with injury problems. I would say Ilyasova is more of a sure thing while Harris could be a worthwhile gamble.

Yeah, but that doesn't mean I can stash Rose for the rest of the season without getting anything of him in the end. :/

well tobias harris is already back so expect some good numbers from him soon. bledsoe shouldnt be out for more than 1-2 weeks. if you can win matchups till whenever rondo is back then youll be fine.

i would have never drafted rose in any league, so i cant tell you whether to keep him or drop him. if i was a rose owner id look to trade him for anything at the moment, you can surely get some late round value out of a team that thinks theyre good enough to stash him.

I picked up Hinrich since he should be getting the majority of the pg minutes. Has disappointed so far.

i was offered Andre Drummond for my kyle Lowry. would you guys accept that deal?

I guess I should take that because I have bad freethrow shooters like Dwight. On the other hand I feel like kyle has been playing really well as of late and I am afraid at some point teams start doing hack a drummond and he will miss lots of playing time.

my team

Lebron
Dwight
Al jefferson
Kawai
Jonas val
james anderson
shawn Marion
eric bledsoe
Kyle Lowry
brandon jennings
isiah thomas
jordan Crawford
trevor ariza


also another question. Tyson chandler is a free agent. would you pick him up or wait?

Lowry is good. He gives you points threes steals assist and some rebounds.

Drummond gives you fgs rebounds blocks and good steals for a big man. Downside is free throws.
I have Lowry and i like him, but i would give him up for drummond in a heart beat.

Should I drop Trey Burke for Asik, Kirilenko, Wesley Johnson, Marcus Morris, Mozgov Thabo Sefalosha, Michael Beasley, Marvin Williams, Derick WIlliams or Kris Middleton?

I actually think Trey Burke is a negative.

Current team in 12 team 9-cat is:

Lebron
Lillard
Teague
Drummond
Brook Lopez
Amir Johnson
Robin Lopez
Tiaggo Splitter
Isaiah Thomas
Sullinger
Danny Green
Kevin Martin
Vince Carter
PJ Tucker
Trey Burke

Have him as well(probably with even better options on my wire), but want to give him todays game. He should be a keeper for you.

yah ended up keeping him and droping PJ tucker for Mozgov should help offset some of the bad FG that Burke brings

Finally droped him for Knight. It's basically a toss up, but I like Knight better in real and he has 4 games (to Burke's 3) in my finals week (if I don't reach it, probably something really bad happened to my team anyway).

Dear god. I didn't think I'd ever say this, but I'm pretty close to dropping Paul Pierce for Derrick Williams or something. Pierce has been hot, sick carcass this year.

This is my team:
Pg-kemba,lillard,ellis,crawford
Sg-korver,kmart
Sf-lbj,parsons
Pf-aldridge,davis,lee,frye
C-big al

I dropped Favors yesterday because he wasn't doing anything at all. I signed Frye, is that bad?
Now that Davis is injured I will have less rebounds,blocks,etc. Because of that I'm thinking of returning Favors.. What do you think? Who should I drop?

And yeah, it's an 8 team, 9cat league.
Cheers!

i'm prettyh sure favors is way better than frye (FT percentage on a high volume is a negative for him tho but considering you have lillard and martin you should be able to absorb that).. i would scoop him back up in a second

I'm not saying that Favors isnt worth owning, he is a great player. The only reason why I signed Frye is beause he shoots 3's.. And If i want to win this week, i have to have as much 3's as I can get. Davis got injured so I gave up on trying to win in rebs,blocks...
I know that Favors is better than Frye, but IMO Frye gives me more chance to win this week..
