Default B-Roy and Mike Conley for Hibbert and Devin Harris?

I was offered this trade in a KEEPER LEAGUE. My weakness is assist and i dominate blocks every week. My current team is:

Dwyane Wade

Kyle Lowry
Devin Harris
Hedo Turkoglu
Josh Smith
Amare Stoudemire

Roy Hibbert
Javelle McGee
Rodney Stuckey
Caron Butler
Paul Pierce
Andrea Bargnani

Brandon Jennings
IR- Baron Davis

Bold = Potential keeper players. I can only keep 5

So I would be trading Hibbert and Devin Harris and receiving Mike Conley and Brandon Roy.

I'm considering this trade since Roy is a potential keeper while the others are not. But I also want to win this year.

Should I take the risk on Brandon Roy?

No way. Roy's value as a keeper is minimal because the knee issues will never go away and will only get worse. He has no cartilage in his knee left, so the bones are just rubbing together. He'll probably need knee replacements later in life. There's just no way he'll be able to play significant mins or many games in the future.

I have a buddy from my soccer team with the same situation. He's in his mid-30's and the doctor told him that a knee replacement might only last him 15 years, so he's suffering through it while he's young for now and will have replacements when he's older. My buddy has no chance of playing 30 mins 4 nights a week, and that's basically what Roy will have to walk away from as well.

Dang man, that's serious. Thanks for the help out. I'll stay away from B-Roy now haha. But man what a tragic inujury.

Yea, I agree with Benjamin. Would stay away from Roy this year.

Hibbert also looks like a monster so far and might be worth keeping at season's end if he continues to improve (over Pierce, who is nearing end-of-career) because of his huge block numbers and ability to hit at the FT line as a center. I think his FG% so far is a fluke and should normalize near 50%.
