  1. Looks like a decent trade to me. I don't like anyone's propensity for injury in that group of 3, but I'd move Kyrie for those pieces if I wanted to get rid of him.
  2. I'd like to go with Naz because he's the center but he got no minutes last game and if that keeps up or becomes a trend, then James Johnson is the obvious pickup. I am betting on the team wanting to see what they have in their new players rather than specifically player development on the young guys. So, James Johnson is my pick.
  3. I don't think anyone has the true answer until after the break and we see (1) what's really up with KAT and (2) how coach is going to play his rotations. I mean, this iteration of the team is only a week old and we only just found out about KAT. With that said I went with James Johnson. Personally, I would go with Naz 2nd over Juancho, but that's just because I have an abundance of 3 point chuckers on my squad. In a vacuum, maybe Juancho then Naz. I prefer the multi cat production of Johnson over the points, threes, and maybe boards and FT% of Juancho. But that's just me. To each their own.
  4. The typical person rosters a PG for assists and steals. Huerter gives you more of those than both Sexton and Robinson. In addition, Sexton shoots around 80%+ at the FT line. He's not going to help anywhere near as much as AD does.
  5. Looks like you should stand pat. Its a great offer, but given your roster construction you are loaded on points and 3's. Tobias and Bojan will provide you with more points and 3's and sometimes a FG% boost. But since you have Harden, Brooke Lopez, Dinwiddie, Covington, etc your FG% probably isn't a strength of yours anyway. And since people won't really trade you will be stuck with an abundance of categories that you already have in the bag without a way to improve other categories. (Assuming you are doing categories and not points). All in all it's a great trade in a vacuum, but given your roster I personally don't think it will benefit you much.
  6. Definitely get rid of IT, that dude should not be present on any dynasty team. I keep hearing good things about Garland despite him not playing well at the moment, so I would possibly think about Gary Harris as your other drop/swap option. I love the potential of Dejounte Murray and I just read that Elf is not going to be the starting PG for NYK for the time being, read into that as much as you want to.
  7. 12 Team 8 Cat I currently have Serge Ibaka rostered because I like how fits my punt assist/punt stls strategy. When looking at box scores Brandon Clarke and Ibaka have similar stat profiles with the exception of Clarke having a significantly higher FG%. They play roughly the same amount of minutes and I am thinking of replacing Ibaka with Clarke because Ibaka has not been performing as well as he did last year (FG% is down, blks are down, seems like role is reduced). What are your thoughts on the two players and which do you think will have the better year overall? Should I swap them out?
  8. What the hell, man! Why didn't you want to do this before I dropped you. Oh well, congrats to those who timed MIllsap on the upswing.
  9. Cut Hayward. If I had to gamble on one producing it would be Will Barton.
  10. My bad, I guess I glanced over that bit of information there. And while taking that into consideration I still think you should definitely try to open up a streaming spot if possible, but it is very difficult for someone outside of your league to help assess your options. Looking at your core players, you have assembled a very strong punt assists team where the vase majority are ideal punt assist players and then there are those that are great support players. Your team as comprised is strong and can theoretically be improved with a streaming spot, but from my perspective it is very difficult to determine what to cut that won't hurt much in order to add theoretical stats that should be greater than the stats that any one person can acquire in a 3 or 4 day week. TLDR: The basic ideas is that a streaming spot is more valuable than most individual players. You have a great team, but I have no idea who to trade for a 2 for 1 without knowing who is on your opponents teams and who is on the wire. Sorry, bro.
  11. You should definitely try to open up a streaming spot if possible. The league that I'm in does not trade much, but I think a sound strategy is to trade two of your players with a team that is either out of the playoffs equation completely or is on the fringe trying to get into the playoffs. I liken this type of trade to when a real life team tries to trade one of their players to a different conference so that they don't have to deal with playing against that player. In your case since your team is stacked, if successful, you wouldn't have to worry about arming the playoff competition with two sound pieces. If you could do it I would get rid of Boban and Delon Wright and try to get someone in a comparable rank.
  12. You take that and drop Dunn or Sabonis. I haven't been paying attention to Sabonis much since Turner has been lighting it up, but I imagine if Turner balls out he takes minutes (and stats) away from Sabonis.
  13. I'd take Cedi's playoff schedule over Dario's (443 vs 333).
  14. Wait to see who performs better for a few games. I'd lean on dropping Rose because points are easy to find, but honestly I'd just wait and see who performs better over the next few days. Same playoff schedule, so I guess it really just depends on what stats you need.
  15. You may have already said it, but I think Justin Holiday is your drop
  16. I don't think he gets the same opportunities once Love and Thompson are back. He also has Nance Jr and maybe Cedi to compete with for PF minutes. He's like Terrance Jones, a stat producer but a bad basketball player.
  17. Derrick White easily. Keep him there until you know how Pop is going to manage his plantar fasciitis, which is what I think he has.
  18. I wouldn't take it unless you are a gambling man. NO GM is trying to petition the league to get AD to sit out the rest of the year and Love will take time to get up to speed. And when he does he still does not give you more than Embiid. I know the 4/4/3 schedule beats Embiid's 3/3/3 but you will never recoup the blocks and FG% that Embiid provides if the AD situation doesn't play itself out properly.
  19. My guess would be Rubio. They play the same amount of games over the next two weeks, but I'll lean on Rubio's side based on his famed post ASB run that he seems to go on every year.
  20. No, I don't think you should drop anyone. Unless you are really hurting or fighting for a playoff spot, Embiid will be back soon and I think all of the players you named will have more value than Boban this week and moving forward. Besides, how much can Boban really help? Every coach he has played for will not play him for more than 22min if even that much.
  21. I want to improve my squad for the playoffs, but I cannot find the heart to drop anyone on my squad. My team is not perfect, but I have a bias towards my creation and I cannot make a objective assessment of my team. Please help. Notable players on the wire are D White and that's about it. I mean C Zeller, M Bridges, K Bazemore, D Howard, but no one with really impactful skills and a decent playoff schedule. Is there any way that I can improve my squad and/or do I have a drop for D White? Or what about moving J Val from IR? My team is: PG: K Dunn, T Sato SG: J Richardson, B Hield, T Ariza, Bog Bog SF: O Porter, D Gallinari, J Parker C: A Davis, L Aldrige, J Collins, H Whiteside IR: J Vanciunas
