Lonzo Ball or James Wiseman? (Keep 6 dilemma) 

Post#1 » by chaps316 » Thu Jun 10, 2021 1:51 pm

Hi guys,

I need your input on who I should protect with my 6th and final Keeper spot in my 10 team Yahoo H2H league. Here are my keepers

#1) LaMelo Ball
#2) De'Aaron Fox
#3) Jayson Tatum
#4) Jaren Jackson Jr
#5) Nikola Jokic
#6) Lonzo Ball or James Wiseman ???

Will try to trade for a pick: Lonzo OR Wiseman, Chris Paul, Marcus Smart, OG Anunoby.

The categories are: FG%, FT%, 3s, Points, Rebounds, Assists, Steals, Blocks, Turnovers

Any input is greatly appreciated. Another thought that has crossed my mind is to gamble and trade away the unicorn JJJ because he might be forever injury prone. It would be very cool to own both Ball brothers for the next few years and I am also very high on Wiseman's potential.

Thoughts?

Thanks a bunch!

Ball, Wiseman won't be good/have big playing time for 3-4 more years

Wiseman is gonna miss summer league and may even miss part of training camp. He’s unlikely to start at the 5 unless he comes back much improved, which is doubtful because he’ll be rehabbing most of the summer. Keep Ball.

Given your categories, shouldn’t you just keep OG?

In any case, not sure current Wiseman has any place in a ten team league, now or in the near future.

Wait, what? Keep Chris Paul over both of those.

Second this, OG is a top 50 fantasy player with good percentages, and good stats across the board. Lonzo is good too but you already have 2 PGs in LaMelo and Fox, so not sure if you want to balance your Forwards out, I dont think you can go wrong with either OG or Lonzo though. Wiseman is a no for sure.

Keep OG and see what you can get for Chris Paul, Wiseman, Ball and Smart.

Based on your choices, definitely not Wiseman. He’s a much worse choice then any of the 9 names you listed.

And OG is probably your 3rd most valuable player based on your league settings behind Jokic and Tatum.

The guy I would look to trade is Fox, who’s fantasy impact isn’t even close to his NBA impact. Then keep Ball or CP3. Or deal Fox + another good player or 2 that you’re not keeping and it might net you a superstar from a team with terrible keepers.
