READ THIS... before asking advice on trades.

Postby bost0n » Fri Jan 28, 2005 8:56 pm

Alright. Whether or not to do a trade depends on a lot more than just the players being traded. The two major factors they involve along with the players are 1) who will be added to your team/dropped from your team once the trade is done and 2) What categories are you good at/what categories you need.

Steps to follow:
1) Post guys being traded
2) Post which stat categories you are already very good at and don’t really need/stat categories you are weak at and do need.
3) Post who you would drop/add after the trade is done. If you are not sure who you will (drop/add), post the people you can pick up or post the group of people who you would consider dropping.

This should be done because it makes our jobs (the people helping you) A LOT easier. We don’t have to ask you these questions once your original post is already done and can help you out directly. You will also have more people helping you out because it is considerably easier to help with.

Thanks.

or just "shoudl i trade kevin garnett for kyle korver" and then we ask "we assume you need 3's, right?". After that, he says yes and we say may you shouldnt and so on and so forth.

Just wanted to add one more thing. It's helpful to see the person's team who is asking for a trade. If they get offered someone for Chris Bosh, and we tell them to do it and then we find out they have Yao and Marcus Camby, then we're not really helping and the people asking get no help. ;-D
Thanks PKF for the amazing sig.
