Default Trade Pau Gasol for Dwight Howard

I know pau gasol is really performing well right now, but how long will it last? In a 10 person H2H league, would Dwight Howard be better to have? Is it a good move if I am need for a few more blocks, and am not that competitive in FT?

I would think Dwight is a better bet to carry decent across the board category numbers than Pau.

Yes, if you're tanking ft%, you win the deal in the long run in H2H.

I say Gasol is the better fantasy player, now and for the rest of the year. However, if you are totally forfeiting FT%, Howard will help you much more. Once you decide your team strategy for certain, that should make up your mind for sure, because once you get Howard, FT% is a lost category.

I would even try to expand the deal see if he has any other solid guys who are below average in FT% and take them off of his hands too.

Guess I'm going against the grain here, but I don't think this a great trade for you. You will be completely forfeiting a category and realistically Howard will not help you much more than Gasol in any Cats but blocks.

Litlle Help?
