I'd probably rather own Williams, long term. This year he's providing similar pts, boards, ft%, steals, blocks and fg%, but has added another dimension with at least one three per.

The bigger question probably is, who's more valuable, Maggette or Deng/Williams? Owning Maggette in a non-contract year is a nightmare, as we've already seen. It sounds crazy, but a healthy Deng/Williams will probably offer more than a banged-up Maggette in the long run. But since Maggette has so much more upside, I still give the nod to him obviously.

again, i'm from the cbs format so i'm not sure how these guys stand up in 8 cat leagues, but I think I would go with Deng and Maggette, a little duplication certainly but I think that Deng is a bigger part of the Bulls offense and has been coming on lately after a horrible start. Marvin Williams hasn't done much since Josh Smith returned from injury and that Atlanta front court gets a little crowded when it comes to fantasy production with Smith, Horford, and Williams (and a decent array of subs)... plus joe cool and mike bibby... just doesn't seem like there's a ton of numbers for Marvin. Same argument could be made for the bulls and deng but Deng is clearly a bigger focal point of the bulls and I would stick with him.

Thanks for all of your opinions ...But why im so iffy about getting Magette , is couple games before his injury he has been putting up some solid numbers,my only scare with picking him up is we all know how serious knee injury's can be..Hell! one of the guys in my league wants to trade Dwight Howard for Amare,who I currently have..but Dwights knee soreness scares me,U never know it can maybe act up during the course of the season as terrific as he's been playing it could be a risk on my end.especially of how good Stoudamire has looked recently.With Williams he's had 2 off nights when he couldn't buy a bucket..hopefully he can bounce back ..ill give him couple games then make my decision closer to when magette comes back..thanks again.

Don't trade Amare for Dwight, even in a H2H league which I'm assuming it is. As far as the topic I'm going to say go with Deng/Maggette
