Re: Just made a big trade, did I win?
I personally like that trade for you. Dirk's value is close to Amare's, even when he breaks out of his slump, and Kidd had MUCH more value than Tayshaun once he comes back down to Earth. You win IMO.
As for dealing Rip, I'd rather offer Harris. Roy can play at the SG spot, but plays like a PG, meaning you can use Rip's efficiency in scoring, %'s and threes as a SG. I like going for someone like Nene only because Yao and JO are such liabilities when it comes to injuries. You could also consider flipping Kidd for someone like Al Jefferson etc, since you already have a poor man's Kidd in both Duhon and Rondo.
