Seems like everyone is doing bigger leagues these days so 12 doesn't seem like much anymore. The one I'm in had 16 people in it and I had the last pick. My starting 5 are Billups, Hamilton, RJ, Krstic and Yao.
I'm not a big fan of Chandler, but he'll pretty much guarantee you win rebounds since you already have DHoward, Randolph, and your starting guards all rebound well. I'm not a fan of taking guys that are going to be on the shelf, so I don't see the Gasol loss as a big one...for now.
Claxton will put up better numbers than Foye, almost guaranteed, so I like that.
I sort of expect Francis to have a nice year for some reason, so you may be missing out there. However, Tayshaun won't hurt you in any area and he's a model of health (3 seasons in a row of 82 games) so he's definitely a safe bet.
Overall I'd say you took the safe road and passed on a potentially stronger group of guys, but by no means did you get raped like some are saying. Decent deal depending on the needs of each side.
