I just pulled two deals today. What do u think?

Postby smooveroots » Fri Dec 07, 2012 8:55 pm

I am in yahoo H2H, 9cat league. I pulled the trigger on two deals today....The first trade was to get more blocks and I think i made a sacrifice giving up Lawson.

First deal

My Lawson & Cousin for Gortat & M Thornton

Second deal

My Hibbert for Millsap

Please let me know your honest opinion on both trades.
Thanks
Jrue Holiday -- M Millsap
Calderón -- Gortat
George Hill -- David Lee
Monta Ellis -- Nikola Pekovic
Nicolas Batum -- Pau Gasol
Delfino-- Rubio

well in all honesty, you got traderaped on the first one. cousins and lawson are both 2nd round picks with a really high upside. they are both just breaking out of their early season slump, so IMO you could have gotten a whole lot more... although marcus thornton is a good asset, gortat's dismal performances of late have left him in the possibility of getting benched by Gentry.
the second trade is ok. millsap again, has much higher upside that hibbert in terms of points, steals, and possibly rebounds. hibbert will certainly get you blocks though.

Traderaped is certainly the right word to use for the first deal. I wouldn't even trade Lawson or Cousins even if I got offered both of the other guys for one of them.

For the second deal you got a good deal. Hibbert is bound to pick it up but Milsap is clearly the better player.

Thanks man. As i said, Lawson is one that I didnt want to let go but I notice Iggy has been killing his game just like he did with Jrue in Philly. I am not sure if Cousin will get back to his old self this year. He doesnt even try to block at all, I didnt want to wait on him too long as his value decline. I might be wrong about him.

As for Gortat, the coach is crazy and I think it is temporary for him being on the bench because that happened with Cousin last week.

I agree, Millsap will be a good fit for my team. I also looked at FG% will be improved for me in both deals as well.
