Default Blockbuster trade help please!!

I was offered Durant and Bargnani, for Gasol, Nene and Kirilenko.

I am currently in 1st place in a 12 team Roto. My two struggles are points and FG%.

When analyzing this trade it looks decent to me because I think, Bynum will hurt Gasols rebounds and some scoring obviously, Nene is a huge injury risk and afraid that K-Mart and Andersen will hurt him when they come back and AK47 is bound to go down soon. Am I wrong? Please need help.

The rest of my team:

PG: Kidd
SG: Salmons
G: Collison
SF: Gallinari
PF: Blatche
C: Biedrins
C: Gasol
Uti: Al Harrington
Uti: Hilario
Bench: Bledsoe
Bench: Villanueva

The trade is essentially Pau/Nene/AK for Durant/Bargs/Bledsoe or CV, since you're moving one of your bench players into your lineup in a 3for2.

Durant>Pau (long-term)
Bargs>Nene
Bledsoe or CV < or = AK

You win the deal whether you plug Bledsoe or CV into your lineup IMO, and its prob not even as close as I'm giving it. Team becomes:
Kidd
Salmons
Collison
Gallo
Blatche
Durant
Harrington
Bargs
Biedrins
CV

Scoring, threes and ft% become very solid. Rebounds, steals and blocks look good. Assists and turnovers might be weak, and fg% looks to remain a big problem. Playing Bledsoe for a while instead of CV will help with assists, but it'll hurt other areas so that's a tough call either way.

My opinion is you have to make this deal, even if it doesnt shore up all your cats. Land the better side of the deal, and then move guys later to fix things, because IMO you win the trade too much to turn it down for cat concerns at this point in the season.

I would do it.
Durant's stats will get better as the season goes on and Gasol's will get worse with the return of Bynum.

I would take the trade, mainly for Durant's upside as the season goes on.

Pau does look like a monster this year so far. His stats usually go down playing next to Bynum, but not by much. Nene should improve as he recovers from his groin injury, and will probably end the season worth about the same as Bargnan. Kirilenko is always an injury risk.

After the trade, your team is going to be weak on boards so you'll probably need to re-tool again. One thing to consider is trading your jumpshooting bigs (Gallo, Blatche, Bargs, CV, Harrington) for a true center.
