Default Duncan+Salmons 4 Amare+Nick Young

I'm trading Duncan and Salmons for Amare and Nick Young (who I'll probably drop).

It's standard categories and 12 Team ROTO.

Right now, I'm first in points, fourth in assists and FT%, tied for sixth in 3PTM, ninth in steals, tenth in blocks and rebounds and FG%, and dead last in turnovers.

PG SG G SF PF F C C Utl Utl Ben Ben Ben
Joe Johnson
(Atl - PG,SG)
SG
Kevin Durant
(OKC - SG,SF)
G
Devin Harris
(NJ - PG)
SF
Lebron James
(Cle - SF)
PF
Tim Duncan
(SA - PF,C)
F
John Salmons
(Sac - SG,SF)
C
Zach Randolph
(LAC - PF,C)
C
Marc Gasol
(Mem - C)
Util
Jeff Green
(OKC - SF,PF)
Util
Travis Outlaw
(Por - SF,PF)
BN
Shaquille O'Neal
(Pho - C)
BN
Delonte West
(Cle - PG,SG)
BN
Anderson Varejao
(Cle - PF,C)

Simply put, I could use a lot of help.
Obviously Amare is a huge addition to any team, even though Duncan and Salmons are very good as well. I know that Duncan and Salmons are on hot streaks (selling high), but as soon as Manu, Tony Parker, and Kevin Martin get back, I see their numbers going down.

Since, he's already accepted this trade, too late for me to back down, but I want to know if I screwed my team/his team over.

Also, I plan on dropping Nick Young for some random person on the list which includes:
Mike Dunleavy
Charlie Villanueva
Francisco Garcia
J.R. Smith
Ricky Davis
Chris Wilcox
Antonio McDyess
Rodney Stuckey (who I dropped for Varejao)
Cuttino Mobley
Nocioni
Daniel Gibson
Tyrus
Ben Wallace
Fisher
Michael Finley
Westbrook
Jeff Foster
Eric Gordon
Chalmers

:S... Also, it'd be nice if you could suggest other trades I could and should make/offer.

stash westbrook and mobley. Westbrook is a potential starter since thunders have no chance in playoffs, and the new manager may be willing to start his rookies. Mobley because..


www.rotoworld.com said so =]

You're getting the sweet end of the deal especially with a lot of FA's better than Young. Kudos to you

That's a great trade for you. You got a top 4 guy for your third rounder and probably your 10th rounder. Amare's stock is at an all-time low right now anyway. Congrats.

Since you're not dealing with any injuries right now, how about grabbing Dunleavy and waiting on him to be back? He'll produce great numbers, as long as you're willing to wait another two weeks or so. You might also want to look into grabbing Garcia, as he's due back soon as well. Those are two steals from waivers if you can get them. Green and Outlaw are your most droppable. Move Durant to F and West to SG for the time being or whatever.

Getting yourself another C would be a good move right now as well. Its hard to know what's going to happen with ZBo, so maybe sell high on him now and target someone with C eligibility, since it looks like you're desperate for blocks.

I picked up Cuttino for Nick Young and got Dunleavy for Outlaw. I'm hoping that Amare can immediately boost the rebounds and FG% a bit. Also, what big could I get for Zach Randolph? Should I try to attach him with one of my many guards for a top of the line shot blocker, or should I offer him one for one for a big and then trade my guards for another one?

Also, I'm not too pumped about having three Cavs in my line-up, so is there someone (probably not Lebron) that I should drop or sell (Varejao or West)?

Thanks for the help so far.

I'd look to get Bynum, Camby, Duncan or Kaman.

Camby and Kaman even after the arrival of Randolph? And what would you say is Randolph's value after his departure from the Knicks?

Also, I just traded Duncan away for Amare. I doubt he'd sell him back.
