Good Trade or Bad Trade?

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.

Why did you all let me do this...? Hahaha.

At least the Hibbert for Batum trade panned out super well for me. I'm 2nd in points for (out of 12), even after starting 0-5, but I'm on a 7 game winning streak and up to 8-6.

Problem is, there's are a ton of guys hovering around the last few playoff spots at 9-5 and 8-6. Wish me luck.
