Default Going to propose the following deal....

What do people think before I offer this up...it's huge.

I GIVE.....Dirk, Kaman, Okafor.......asking for Biedrins, Al Jefferson and Kidd.



I also have Tony Parker, who is of course injured. If I got Kidd, Parker becomes of little use as I would be first in dimes with Kidd. So, do I add Parker and receive Barnes, just to make it look better for the other team?

I am worried the initla deal won't be too exciting for him, but maybe I am way off.

If I was on the other team. I wouldn't do it. Reason?....Okafor ,guy has been downright awful! You'd have to sweeten the pot a bit by taking out Emeka and adding a 2nd or 3rd rounder type player.

That being said. It's always worth a try.

So what if I added Tony Parker then...and took a lower guy like Barnes from him.

Dirk, Kaman, Okafor and Parker.......Biedrins, Al Jefferson, Kidd and Barnes?

Okafor has been bad...but he's had the flu these last two games...hopefully that was the reason for bad play.

Yeah I'd be surprised if that got it done. Adding Parker for Barnes would help a lot, but it seems like you'd be giving up an awful lot in the long run.

I figure Biedrins has been better than Kaman, Dirk has been as good as Jefferson, and Okafor is miles behind Kidd, so it probably doesnt make sense for the other owner. Does adding Kidd to your team really put you that far ahead in assists, even without Parker? If it does and you feel you can afford to add Parker then give it a try. You win bigtime in the first three parts of the offer IMO, so if losing Parker gets it done and you've crunched the numbers, go for it. I dont love it personally and its probably not the route I'd go, but like I said, if it feels right for you then give it a shot.

That looks better. I personally still wouldn't do it , but he might.

Who are you really going after here?..who interests you the most out of the players your getting?

Well it's roto...so it's just a deal that helps me as a unit. I worry about Kidd keeping this up for sure, but even if I adjust his numbers a bit, and put Biedrins at 14/12 I still get better....

Yeah, It seems in my other leagues Beidrins is a hot ticket as well. There's no doubt if you get that trade done, you win hands down. Like I said, give it a try and see if he accepts or makes a counter offer.

WITH!

My league is so tight it's getting annoying. I was basically selling low on all 4 of my guys and buying hign on Kidd, Biedrins and Jefferson. I knew it...I was just bored with my team, and the other GM still declined.
