Ehhh..it's pretty much even. I side much on the lewis/okafor side though because I have Lewis, and I can tell you that if you drop him, theres no way your contending with 3's. He's also getting 17+ (cant remember) ppg and some boards a game, along with crushing the league leaders in 3's. I don't think sheed or durant could make up for his lost, but its not horriable bad, i think it's more of a 60-40 to the lewis side though.


Edit: Oh also Lewis gets blocks and steals. Not alot but for a SF/PF, it does the job.

That is my concern...Durant is a best and can easily get the 25, 10, and 4 nightly. He will not knock down as many threes, but Sheed will make up for that. I am actually more concerned about Sheed's shooting percentage.

I think KD and Sheed is better and for me, it's not close.

KD is better then Lewis right now, and Sheed is a better fantasy player easily then Okafor. If you're concerned about one category (FG%) in particular, then that changes things but overall, the KD side. And Okafor's FT% hurts you just as much as Sheed's FG%.

And for the 3's comment, KD and Sheed more then cover Lewis' 3's. In fact, you actually win in 3's in this deal. KD also blks more then Lewis and gets the same stls.

Not close for me.

Durant and Sheed are better. Both of those guys help you across the board while Rashard and Okafor are more specialists in fantasy - Rashard for 3s and Okafor for blocks/rebounds. 3's, as seen over the past few weeks, is the easiest category to make up as you go along a fantasy season too (i.e. Eddie House's 15 treys over the past 2 games he's played).

Make the trade

I think this is a close trade is Lewis is a very decent fantasy player but the Durant and Sheed side is better. Sheed can give you a lot of stats. Okafor is a bit inconsistent but also good. Durant is the icebreaker for me. He is on another level. Take the deal

Durant and Sheed for me as well. Durant looks almost like LeBron right now with the across-the-board stats, and he's gonna maintain that value. I love Rashard's efficiency, but Sheed offers similar value, with KD killing Okafor comparatively.

Makes me sooo pissed that I traded Durant earlier in the season (2 days before the coach firing and the move to SF) for Hedo Turkoglu.

Now I am trying to trade him for Rashard Lewis.

Actually no they dont. Lewis made 129 3's this year. Sheed has 70, Durant has 57. Thats more then cover? And hes averaging 3 a game. Main point is that Lewis is VERY valuable.

Take a look at the averages. Rasheed has missed a bunch of games this year, which skews his total stats. That's the problem with stats, there are different ways to look at them

i'll go for the sheed and durant side too. both players covers all stats.. no offense but dealing with these two players are not close enough if you're getting lewis and okafor's side..

take the deal

As Tian said, Durant and Sheed give you more per game then Rashard and Okafor so they do more then cover Rashard's.

And 3's aside, this trade still is heavily favoured in the KD/Sheed side.

Yeah I was saying you im now on ya'll side but putting it out there that Lewis isn't as bad as you guys make it seem though. He's the reason my fantasy team wins 3's every week. Durant for Lewis though? I still would say Lewis seeing that durant does average more ppg and has the same rpg as Lewis, but lewis 3's makes him more valuable. I don't know why to push for Durant like that when it seems like his team still needs those 3's judging by his players.
