WHIR: Do I make this trade for Harden!?

Recommended Posts

Okay y'all, I truly need your help and I Will Help In Response. Should I trade Ben Simmons and DeMar DeRozan for James Harden? 

 

Here's what my team looks like: 

 

Before 

Ben Simmons / Lonzo Ball / Isaiah Thomas

Devin Booker / DeMar DeRozan

Brandon Ingram / Bojan Bogdanovic

Anthony Davis / LaMarcus Aldridge / Hassan Whiteside

 

After 

 

James Harden / Lonzo Ball / Isaiah Thomas

Devin Booker /

Brandon Ingram / Bojan Bogdanovic

Anthony Davis / LaMarcus Aldridge / Hassan Whiteside

 

12-team , 9-cat H2H league

I think I will do it in a heartbeat. But how do you get Booker, Simmons, AD, LMA in 12 teams?

The fact you have to ask that question is the reason why I feel this decision is hard. But I do get the upside of Harden is ridiculous

Do it. Harden's a beast and he looks like he's not going to give Russ much usage when he's on the court so he should be almost as good as he was last year.

I would typically always lean towards combining two early-mid to mid-rounders for a top-3 pick like Harden. Derozan has actually lost some value bc of less assists with Murray in the mix. I think all of us can agree Harden will continue to be a beast ROS and probably will improve his FG and steals a bit more. With the open roster spot, you also now have room to take on some fliers or stream.

 

Help with mine?

I'd make that deal for Harden.  Harden will carry you in a quite a few cats.  You can look to make up the steals/blocks difference off the wire..  

 

Thanks for mine.

And not that it needs to be driven into the ground, but I'm another yes for Harden.  His FG% and TOs are killer, but he basically anchors FT% for your team and can dominate points.  Once his treys start falling, you'll be elite in that cat (since Ben/DDR don't shoot them) and can simultaneously improve FG% as well.

If you're offering though, I doubt the Harden owner would accept.

Take Harden and don't look back..still plenty of firepower on the team without Simmons and DeRozan who are playing more with

in a system whereas Harden despite Westbrook is posting his same numbers.
