Just so there is no confusion, you are receivng Monta Ellis (who is a 2nd round value FYI and a keeper, so a 1st rounder next year) in exchange for taking Derrick Rose in the 5th?

Sorry brwnman, but this deserves another

I guess anybody would accept that trade. In fact Monta Ellis has more value than most players selected in THIRD round.

Anyway, Rose in fifth round is not a bad pick. He will be a superkeeper next season if he returns near to his previous level.

Why not just keep Monta and pick Rose yourself in like 5 picks because nobody else would be picking him.

I looked at perhaps Rose in the 7th or 8th Rounds, but even then I wasnt sure about it.

High risk and reward scenario IMO.

My Pick coming up......

Yeah, that doesn't make sense at all. If you don't like Monta Ellis and you DESPERATELY want to make sure you get Rose, then you don't keep Ellis and draft Rose in SECOND round!!! You are better even that way because you can use the keeper spot in another player

I don't know what kind of logic brwnman used.

I've been checking in for the past couple of hours since RCW made his pick since I know i'll be going out soon. I already know what's gonna happen, as" soon as I head out, all 4 people ahead of me will make their picks in rapid fashion and by the time I log back in, i'll see 8 people like "oh no where's bokes! he disappeared on us! It's hard to make 5 picks in advance, it's different if it's like 2 or 3.

On a side note, wow on that trade. At worst, Monta is an early third rounder. I mean D-Rose will of course be a solid 5th round keeper for next season BUT I think as others have said he probably would've dropped a little further and probably even still be around 5 picks later for your selection. Just not a fan of Monta or something?

I really like Monta, (he's one of my favourite players). I just don't like his fit in Milwaukee. I had been trying for years to acquire Monta, and when I finally do, it's just not a great fit. I didn't like the way the draft was heading. And I didn't have a pick in the 6th round (Lawson). As others mentioned, they'd be looking to acquire him in the 7th or 8th round. If they're ahead of me in the 7th round, and they select him, I lose out on him. My only option was to reach a little bit for him. Losing Monta hurts cause I like him as a player, but not so much fantasy wise. His numbers won't look much different than they did last year with Milwaukee; Scott Skiles sucks for fantasy.

EDIT - I also like to award the newcomer to the league a leg-up on the competition. I made a deal with FC last year before the season (right after the draft actually) and he ended up winning. So best of luck to beastnani...
