Good Trade or Bad Trade?

12 posts in this topic

Kevin Garnett for Kevin Love straight up?

I need help ASAP cause I'm 0-2 despite having like the 4th most points for in my 12 person league. I'm playing a 2-0 team this week and we're about tied, and my next 2 weeks are against strong teams as well. I could use the help that KG gives me now, but would it be giving up too much down the line once Love comes back?

I don't know very much about fantasy basketball, so help is appreciated.

Love is top 5 player in the NBA. Garnett isn't even top 15

Again though, Love is out for another few weeks and the next few weeks are crucial for me. I play scrubs for most of the season after these next 2-3 weeks.

I think I'm just trying to convince myself it's a good trade to make. We have a big bench in this league, so there's nobody decent that I can just pick up from free agency.

If you are really desperate and can't wait, then yes. But maybe you can do a 2 for 2 deal where you get an upgrade at different position.

That would've been a good idea. Damn. I made the trade though.

This is fantasy and Kevin Love is worth 5 Garnett's

Can't believe I made this trade. Despite thinking Love would be out for a month longer than he was, it was the dumbest thing I've ever done in any fantasy sport.

Anyways, I had Love, Lebron, and Harden in my 12 team league at the beginning of the season. Essentially 1/2 of the top 6 players. Now I only have Lebron...

Just traded Harden & Garnett for Lowry, Rudy Gay, and Alonso Gee. I feel like I made another dumb trade, but I'm desperate.

I'm 0-4 despite being a top 3 scorer every single week except one, where I was 5th. I have the 4th most points scored, but over 500 more points against than the next closest. The guy with the least points scored is 3-1, and 3rd to last is also 3-1. I feel so cheated with my schedule.

Also, would Hibbert for Batum straight up be a good trade? I have a lot of good players at C/PF, but no great players. Hibbert would be my best, and I just traded away Garnett.

I'd be left with Boozer, Nene, Vucevic, ONeal, Hawes, and Maxiel at C/PF positions. I know it's a lot of mediocre players, but Batum should get back to form soon... Right?

I have Batum and the reason I drafted him is because he does a lot of things well. He will fill up that the stat sheet. Plus, Hibbert's not doing well. You will clearly miss out on blocks but I'd do the trade.

Is Batum out of form? He's playing well.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
