Default How well have I improved my team?

Look at my team after the draft, compared to my team now. I have made many free agent pick ups and 5 trades. I only have 2 players on my team that I drafted.

Team at the beginning of the season:
Elton Brand
Steve Nash
Dwight Howard
Gerald Wallace
Ray Allen
Stephen Jackson
Kirilenko
Zach Randolph
Greg Oden
Manu Ginobili
Quentin Richardson
James Posey
Nate Robinson

Here is my current team:
Kobe Bryant (trade ginobili and dwight howard for kobe)
Rajon Rando (trade jason terry and eric gordon for rondo)
Charlie Villanueva (free agent pick up)
Andrea Bargnani (free agent pick up)
Zach Randolph (drafted him)
Ray Allen (drafted him)
Jose Calderon (traded Gerald Wallace/Brand for Calderon & Al Thornton)
Ronny Turiaf (for blocks)
Samuel Dalembert (free agent pick up)
Al Harrington (traded steve nash for harrington and jason terry)
Mike Dunleavy (free agent pick up)
Tracy Mcgrady (traded Kirilenko for Mcgrady)
Mike Conley (just picked him up yesterday)

So what do you guys think? I think my team is A LOT better than it was after the draft. I'm currently in second place in my 10 team Roto league.

you gave up a lot for kobe. What did you do with jackson? Other than that you did pretty good.

Well, i had to get rid of Dwight Howard because of his ft%. I was last in the league in ft% at 74.7%. I'm currently shooting 78.6%, so I've gone up almost 4% since trading Howard.

I traded stephen jackson away in the calderon deal. I traded brand, gerald wallace, and stephen jackson for calderon, al thornton, and eric gordon. I just really wanted Calderon, and considering Wallace is out for a while and Brand is done for the year I feel like I got lucky with a steal in this trade... But I do tend to give up a lot to get a player I want. I'm more about having one really productive player rather than 2-3 okay players or players who are really good at one thing. Idk, I have a weird philosophy with fantasy sports.

I think you improved your team but you traded a lot for Rondo. Good thing you traded Brand. Be careful on players such as T-Mac and Dunleavy, they are very injury prone.

You're right. But Dunleavy was a free-agent pick up, so there's no harm there.

I traded Gordon and terry because I needed to consolidate my guards. I'm way over games played in my guard positions, so i figured i should do a 2 for 1... Probably could've gotten someone better, but oh well. Terry is injured for a little while anyways so i feel like i got lucky.
