The first trade is the better one. Lewis may be slumping now, but he has been a consistant fantasy stud for years, so its a perfect time to buy low. Lewis is more valuable than wallace, JJ > Ellis so you win that one.

I wouldn't do the second trade. If you want to get rid of Arenas, try not to package him with a guy like Sheed. THere probably a better deal out there.

well I'm 4-5 and in the 6th spot (last spot) for the playoffs half way through our fantasy season. Of course I think I would be a lot higher had gilbert not gotten hurt. I accepted the firt trade and for these reasons:

-lewis is a great player, and just needs to find a more solid role with orlando. He hasnt been great, but hasnt hurt fantasywise either. I mean he is the leading 3pt shooter in the NBA and I was hurting in 3pt attempts. If lewis breaks out and contributes like he did in seattle soon, then i won the trade right there.....
-Joe Johnson is a good all around player and I think he will stay more healthy than "Crash" wallace. g wallace and ellis are so hot right now that I think I can get top dollar for them. The way g. wallace plays hes bound to get hurt again soon, and ellis's production fluctuates every night, though he does have a good fg% for a pg....
- As for sheed, I dont need his services anymore because lewis will get me plenty of 3's and shard is also a pf/sf and I am stacked at the position. I want to trade a package of (aldridge, mohammad, sheed, or wilcox for an upgrade in my pg position and the guy who has tinsley wants sheed and arenas. I honestly dont use sheed or rondo that much at all because I have aldridge and al jefferson as my starting big men, and I was too affraid of rondo's inconsistancy hurting my TO's and FG% and FT%. Besides he was playing behind ellis, antonio daniels and anthony johnson when I had them. I'm hoping foye comes back soon and I can survive with foye, nate robinson, and blake as my pgs while arenas is out. Plus joe johnson helps with assits.

I guess only time will tell, thanks for the input guys!

OH ya and about Arenas. On the sportsline site that I am on they have updated that he is riding the stationary bike during home games and has come farther along with rehab than originally thought. So now do I keep him if I cant get much better than tinsley or trade him now since that is pretty positive news????
