That's a tough one and I typically don't favor trading down, but in this case it might be worth it.

The best player in this deal is Pau. On the other hand, Rose and Noah are playing like 2nd rounders so far and are way ahead of Deng. People are scared that Noah will lose touches to Boozer, but Pau will also lose touches to Bynum.

In the end, I would prefer to have Rose and Noah here, but not by much. So part of the trade probably depends on what stats you need.

This is a H2H league btw, and my team is good in pts,rebs,blocks, and is good in assists and steals, but could improve on them...that's why I think it's a good move in the long-run, I know boozer is coming back, but so is Bynum, and I think this is the hottest Pau will be all season, so might as well move him now right?

12 team or under, I'd think about holding tight. Anything deeper than that I think the depth value is enough to pull the trigger.

It's a 10 man league, but each team has 17 players.

How many starters, 12? If it's 10, I'd probably stick with Gasol

Pau and Noah both probably lose a few stats once Bynum and Boozer come back. Pau has more time to remain elite than Noah does, but neither become a slouch by any means. The upgrade from Deng to Rose is incredibly significant, and actually the coaching staff has mentioned that Deng will log less mins with Boozer's return, so maybe Deng loses more production than Noah does anyway.

Tian is more of a H2H expert than I am so maybe his advice is more solid than my own, but I still think the upgrade from Deng to Rose is more valuable than the downgrade from Pau to Noah, and would make the trade all day. With a 17 man roster, my guess is that even your ten starters could use the depth Rose and Noah provide as a boost in your overall stats, and that's only the worst case scenario like a busy Weds or Fri night when everyone is playing and you need to decide who to start.
