That's tempting if u think that Brand will return to his form of last year, but I think last year was more of a fluke and he's gonna avg closer to what he was putting up in the last couple of years before last season. He'll no doubt improve on his #'s this season, but I dont think he's gonna average around 25 pts per game again, or whatever he was at last season. With the way Randolph is playing, i'd hold on to him. Or try getting Brand by offering Randolph straight up, but take Alston outta the deal.

Once again, it depends on who you can pick up from FA. In reality, it's really a 2 for 2 trade.

That's interesting for sure. I'm assuming he'll be back within the next week or two, and he'll give you some solid stats. He's still a risk though. However, Z-Bo may start to cool down soon, whereas Brand will undoubtadly get you 20/10/3/2, and it'll probably be better than that. Depending on whether or not you can whether the storm of having an injury on your team for the next little while, I'd say do it. No matter what happens, Randolph will always be a risk because he's lazy and an all around headcase. Brand is he complete opposite, and he's better than Zach at everything, except scoring where they're about equal (Zach's scoring will go down, Brand's will go up imo).

It obviously depends on what you need for your teams at the moment, but just looking at it individually, I'd actually say do it. The biggest factor is how much faith you have in Williams. If you think he can get back to last season's form (12/5/2 threes and a steal), pull the trigger. If you have even an ounce of doubt though, it might be safer to wait. Although now's the time to trade Z-Bo, considering his value is through the roof. So yeah, there are a lot of factors in this one. That kind of breaks down my opinion of the trade though.

I think its a good trade. Ridonks might have covered this in his last post because I didnt read it, but as in stocks: Buy low, sell high. Right now z-bo is at probably his highest or near his highest production, while Brand is pretty low. I think its a good deal for you.
