So I play with friends for a couple of years allredy ESPN H2H league. (9 categorys included, PTS, FG%, 3PM, Ass, Reb, Blocks, Stl FT%, TO)

Had Jimmy Butler as a keeper and Anthony Davies all of that years, but drafted Doncic now and now I am not sure what to do.

Who would you keep?

Luka without question if you are going to non % stats. Luka is going into his second season and should see a big pump in production. Jimmy was a 18.2ppg scorer who is about to go to the wrong side of 30. Luka is primed to be 23/8/7 or even higher. Big plus for Jimmy is three free throws, Luka would be lucky to his 80% this year, heck 75% would be a great improvement.

Given his new role on the Heat: Butler

Jimmy will average closer to 25 than 18.2. Playing with a top 5 scorer + Tobias/Simmons/Redick takes a toll on your scoring output.

Im bit afraid that Kristaps will lower Luka's numbers this year a bit.

I would go with Doncic. the offense will run through him, and he will get a lot of numbers while working less on defense.

Jimmy is going to be better this year, probably by a decent amount. Luka's got three major holes in his line and that's hard to overcome. However, I'd keep Luka. Significantly more long-term value and his trade value in a keeper league is going to be nuts. If you want to move him, you'll be able to do better than a Jimmy-level guy.
