Default Bynum or Brand?

I am in a ten team league and I've moved up to a respectable 6th seed after being 10th in the early portion of the season. I've been able to make some trades and this is my current team:

Chauncey Billups
Jose Calderon
Vince Carter
Anthony Carter
Tayshawns Prince
Pau Gasol
Carlos Boozer
Brad Miller
Shawn Marion
Samuel Dalembert
Luol Deng
Elton Brand

I picked up Brand from the waivers and was wondering if I should pick up Bynum instead. We've already seen some amazing production from Bynum, but should I drop Brand for him? The thing is that Bynum will come back as soon as he can because it is very important for the Lakers to win in such a tight Western conference. Whereas the Clippers don't need to rush Brand into anything, because they aren't making it no matter what and the last thing they'd want is to aggrivate his injury. Thoughts anyone?

If both are healthy, Brand is still the better player

Of course, bynum is a center, and it's harder to get good centers

Brand is a center and PF so thats even better than being center only

Drop Carter on your team for Brand and keep Bynum, as long as u think u can stay in the top 6 that is...:)
