Default Zaza + Butler for Okafor and Josh Smith?

I got an offer for Zaza and Caron Butler for Okafor and Josh Smith heres my team:
Troy Murphy
Earl Watson
Brevin Knight
Walton (might be getting Roy)
10 teams: Fg%, FT%, 3Pts, Pts, Rbs, Off. Rbs, Stls, Blks, Assists, TO, A/TO

Should I do this?

I'm also considering offering Murphy for Boris this good or is Diaw more of a bust than Murphy this year?

I'd totally do it. Okafor can get you double doubles and is a blocking machine right now. And Josh Smith is an all-around player that may explode like he did in the second half of last season.

Okafor and Smith's FG% is low which won't help my team given I have Artest and Butler gets my FT% up whereas Okafor brings it down alot. Plus Brand and Artest plus Mohammed abit are getting me lots of blocks so Okafor's additional blocks really won't help me that much given I'm in a head to head league. Zaza is scoring more gets decent OR's. I'm also hesitant b/c of Okafor's injury history.

I like Smith but I know he's more of a 2nd half season player so maybe I should wait awhile?

Any compelling arguments to the contrary?

well i dont know that zaza will continue to be as good, though he isnt even as appealing to me as he is to a lot of other guys, caron is stealing like a mexican right now, but then, so is artest...i say do the trade even for just the boards if you dont care about blocks, okafor will give you another heavy weight rebounder, on top of blocks just in case the other guys take a week off or something, plus josh smith, even if he is a beast only in the second half, is still pretty damn good, and this probably wont be available later...i say take it and dont think twice about it. you may lose a couple of steals, but once smith comes into form, not much, cause caron wont keep 3 a game up like he is now

i think this is a good trade for you, i dont think zaza will play like this for the whole season and okafor for zaza is a huge upgrade. caron is also off to a good start but he will slow down now that arenas is taking over and jameson will start to heat up and be the 2nd option
