Was offered Chris Paul

Postby phx_2008_champs » Fri Nov 30, 2012 12:23 am

I'm in a 12 team, 13 Cat H2H league: FGM, FG%, FTM, FT%, 3PTM, PTS, OREB, DREB, AST, TO, A/TO, STL, BLK

I was offered Chris Paul and Humphries for my Bosh, Lawson and Thaddeous. I'd love to have Durant and Paul on the same team but is this too much to spend on him? The league is pretty active so the WW is pretty thin.

My team is:

Jennings
Felton
Lawson
Nelson
Pargo
Redick
Kawhi
Durant
Thaddeous
Bargnani
Jonas
Duncan
Bosh

Rubio
Klay Thompson
Paul
Granger
Humphries
Gallinari
Ibaka

getting CP3 is a huge one, but losing 3 solid players for getting 1 1st rounder & 1 inconsistent player is too much.. I guess you can try to counter it getting patterson and offering bargnani. Patterson is a hopeful MIP candidate, getting huge numbers (better than andrea in most of cats). I see you got a tons of PG, so I think you need PFs/C..

Value wise its pretty close to a push. Stat-wise you're basically strengthening an area your already strong in and weakening areas you're questionable in. Basically you're going to need to flip one of your points for some big help...having said that Paul's the most valuable- certain piece in the deal. Bosh likely slips a bit into the 2nd round. I'm leaning towards Lawson improving but not to last year's heights. so ... I vote yes to do the deal.

I'd do this deal, yes. Paul + Humphries + Waiver Wire crap is greater than Bosh + Lawson + Young.

Your FG% will take a hit, but since this is H2H and the rest of your team doesn't appear to be strong (at least, not intially with guys like Jennings, Nelson and Bargnani as a big man) at FG% anyway, so it just might be a good H2H strategy as well. That's like a double bonus. The best player in the deal AND improves your H2H strategy.

You might has well have him give you Danny Granger too. You can then decided whether to try to include Granger in a subsequent deal, hold onto him for the next 2 or 3 months or whether to drop him outright.

Your points drop with this trade since Paul isn't scoring quite like he has in the past, so you may look for a modest scorer of the wire to even this out for you (ala Afflalo, Hamilton, Ben Gordon, even G. Henderson returning from injury might work out).

Quite honestly, you may be able to hold your own having both Paul and Durant until such time Granger returns. That could be deadly (in a good way) during the playoff timeframe. 8-o
