Lillard for Irving?

Postby KSChris » Mon Jan 06, 2014 10:55 pm

Pretty much out of it on the year, so I am considering some moves with the future in mind.

This is a 16 team H2H keeper league. 3 keepers per team.

Right now, my team:

Steph Curry
Klay Thompson
Tyreke Evans
Kevin Love
Joakim Noah
Damian Lillard
Jonas Valanciunas
JJ Hickson
Darren Collison
Trevor Booker
Louis Williams
Mirza Teletovic
George Hill
Ryan Anderson - IR

Looking at these three as keepers:

Steph Curry, $23
Kevin Love, $13
Damian Lillard, $11

Was just offered:

Kyrie Irving, $21
Kevin Martin, $5

for Damian Lillard and Klay Thompson.

Normally, I would not do this. Both of these players are better than Irving and Martin. However, Thompson is a non-factor for me. And with there being only three keeper slots, this really comes down to Irving and Lillard.

On the one hand, Lillard is having a better year and is cheaper, and Irving has proven to be more injury prone. On the other hand, when healthy, I think Irving has a slight edge over Lillard in scoring, assists, and percentages.

So this comes down to Irving at $21 vs. Lillard at $11 in terms of future value as a keeper. Thoughts?

I think its close, but Lillard might be the better overall value. Irving's upside is negated by his injuries.

Stick with Lillard. He's only going to improve for next season, so the lower price tag will make him a better keeper than Irving's true value price.
