Same....not having a guy shooting 30% on 20 attempts per game sure helps.

I traded Aaron Gordon for Kemba in mid-december, then had major regrets when Vuc went down.

 

What the hell happened to him? He was dominating in the first half of the season.

Vooch went down. Orlando is a horrible team, so Gordon became the sole focus of the team, so his efficiency went down and opposing teams placed all, or at least most, of their focus on him. The hope is that with Vooch coming back his efficiency will go back up.

For all the bitching we did early on -- best player on the team yada mvp -- he's a lot more comfortable without the ball in his hands. Hoping with Vuc well and DJA running things the mojo returns.

He just got dropped in my league by a desperate owner as well Vucevic, which one is the better choice? I'm 3rd in my 10-team league.

I feel like I'd definitely drop Millsap. I own Millsap and Gordon. I just feel like the Magic are holding Gordon and Vooch out through the ASB, I'm not sure when the hell Millsap is coming back. Malone said mid-march last week.

Vooch would be my #1 as well out of the 3

so my team's fg and ft% has been doing so much better without gordon's 15 fga and 5 fta per game on 44% and 70% shooting. when he comes back however, i think vooch will be back so i'm assuming he hopefully will revert back to how he was playing in the beginning of the season where he was shooting high percentage and contributing in 3's, rebs, pts, stocks.

Drop Parker and Milsap for Vuc and AG! Jabari wont be worth nearly as much as Vuc of AG. Milsap wont be back till like last week of PO!

Smart man. I don’t know why people always try to sell their players when they are injured or underperforming, and refuse to sell when they are performing above the norm. The idea of buy low sell high just doesn’t seem to exist in fantasy lol

lol because when you have something you perceive as valuable you over value it

 

They get attached to players. Ive been buying low all season on people but i will say you have a point with selling high. I dont really run into those too often and i never really bite either cause i know the game lol

I don't know about that. He won't be playing for anything meaningful, Orlando is a wash. With 25 games left after the break and the risk of getting injured, he can potentially be shut down. Orlando covets Gordon. Maybe even Vooch as well. I wouldn't think so anyway, have him on two of my rosters (IL) along with Henzonja just in case. Something to think about..

I don't think he will be shut down. 

He is a still young player and has to be more developed.

If he is enough healthy to play, he will... hopefully...

Definitely not Vucevic.  Orlando are stuck with him unless they give him away.  They've made him available both the last two mid-season trade deadlines as well as this past off-season and nobody wants a piece.  Orlando are either asking for too much in return or nobody wants to give up anything of value for an non-rim protecting C.

Yeah agree. Constructed that in error. Meant to say, they may shut down Vooch as well. Vooch was on the block, so no they don't covet him.

Vooch is too slow footed for PF these days and not good enough for a full time C. You surround him though maybe, not a big attraction where a team gives up a lot. I tell you man, Orlando was clueless for 3-4 years. There's a reason why Scott Skiles said forget this. We'll see with this new GM. Skiles didn't like Payton as their full time PG. Orlando was dead set on Payton, now look where he is. Now watch Payton thrive in Phoenix. They shoulda' kept Harris and Dipo and everybody be trade chips, even Gordon..
