Default Re: Good or bad? Traded Dwight+Westbrook for Millsap+Gortat

Right now, I'm killing my league, and the only category I never win at is FT. Jordan and Drummond also shoot terrible FTs, but the difference is, they don't miss 5-6 per game. I can easily survive Drummond's ft% because he doesn't shoot enough to bring me down. If I drop Drummond and Jordan, then I will potentially risk finally losing blocks every week. Chalmers is there strictly as a boost for steals and assists and was a FA pick up when he was kicking ass at those, and he will be dropped once he goes in a slump. Boozer is playing damn well considering he was my last pick in the draft.

For example, this week (against 2nd place in the league who has a LeBron/A. Davis combo):
I'm up nearly 100 points, 14 blocks (Dwight had 15, but Millsap/Gortat combo can make that up, but dropping Drummond/Jordan would really swing this away from my favor), 17 steals, 50 assists, about 100 rebounds, only 2 threes (my guys are really off this week), and FG%.

However, I'm losing FT%. Most days I'm winning until Dwight's game starts. He has missed 15 free throws this week. Although Drummond and Jordan suck at this, they don't shoot enough to bring down what Durant/Melo and others do like Howard does. Drummond has missed 2 while Jordan has missed 7. I may look to move them, but they weren't killing me the way Howard was.

I see what you're saying, but I'm not in favour of losing consistent guys. Milsap is a stud, but Gortat doesn't have the upside I'd want if you're giving up Westbrook and Dwight. I have Jordan and Drummond in one league and I get killed in FT's every week, but I'm cool with that because I know I'll have a strong rebounding and blocks advantage. I have Gasol and he's been an absolute scrubbed moved him in a couple leagues. Boozer always teases, but he's a big man that won't get you any blocks. Smaller leagues makes things a lot easier though.
