Default Looking to sell high on Ray Allen

After last night's game (which I think will be a rarity this season) I'm looking to sell Ray Allen while his stock has spiked. I'm dead last in my league in rebounds, so I'm looking for a big. Who do you think would be a fair get?

It'll probably have to be a sub 20 point scorer who doesn't shoot 3's and shoots below 70% from the line. Otherwise, I don't think Ray would be enticing enough.

Try getting Mike Miller...buy low candidate.

Richard Jefferson might be a buy low also.

Tony Parker if you're very lucky.

Randy Foye if you're a risk taker.

My bad....

Ok so for bigs, Al Horford would be a buy low candidate. Zach Randolph is usually a fantasy cancer, so his owner might love moving him for the flashy name of Ray Allen. Dalembert might fly also....and a risky play would be Troy Murphy. Sheed also I would try. Big Z is old, but still producing.

Shoot higher at first.

I don't think you need to worry about if the big is a decent FT shooter or not, and if they happen to hit some 3's.

Emeka
Horford
Brad Miller
JO

Those four are about the same value as Allen ..

The reason I said that is because the main selling points for Allen are his 3's made, 3pt%, and FT%. If the big I ask for is already decent in those categories, it makes the trade less attractive for the other owner.

I know what you are saying. But not many bigs shoot 90% from the line, or hit 2+ 3's. So, the new owner will gain in those cats no matter what big the move. Also, I just think Ray Allen's name brings something to the table as people will hope for the glory days. So I wouldn't not offer Ray for Okur, just because in theory Okur will hit some 3's and shoot decent from the line.

Try going for Kaman. You might have to package a filler along with Allen. Also try going for Dalembert although his production has decreased with Brand in town. There's really not a whole lot of bigs who have equivalent value to Allen and give you the cats you need. Biedrins is another good option, I have him ranked higher than Dalembert and right there with Kaman. Also try Emeka, those should be your 4 targets for what you're looking for.

So glad I got rid of Allen two days ago in a major trade. And last night's game will be a rarity for Allen because they won't need that type of output out of him against lesser teams.

Try Allen for Biedrins.


They will bite on that... and Biedrins is a BEAST.


I managed to pick him up in the 9th round... he's always under the radar... and he got me 22 boards last game.

I really want to go after Camby. I know it's a gamble and I realize I'll have to give up quite a bit, but it could pay off immensely.

So what's a good 2-for-2 deal featuring Allen?

Keep in mind that I absolutely own my league in AST, A/T ratio, 3's and 3pt%. Those are the only categories that I can really afford to give up significantly.

MY TEAM
Ray Allen
Chris Paul
Andrei Kirilenko
Anthony Parker
Rasheed Wallace
Paul Millsap
J.R. Smith
Andre Miller
Steve Nash
Al Harrington
Derek Fisher
Jamario Moon
Rashard Lewis
Brook Lopez
Vince Carter
Vladimir Radmanovic
Eric Dampier
Ronny Turiaf
Jarvis Hayes



THE OTHER TEAM
Marcus Camby
Rajon Rondo
Mike Dunleavy
Peja Stojakovic
Kirk Hinrich
Matt Barnes
Amare Stoudemire
Gerald Wallace
Kendrick Perkins
Drew Gooden
Cuttino Mobley
