It's hard enough to tell how a team's going to do in 8 team leagues but it gets much more difficult with 6 teams. All I can do is try to help you balance your team.
You seem pretty solid in most categories except for 3PTM. That should come as no surprise since you have Wade, Miller and Ellis on your team. You've got two courses of action that I think you should choose from. You can either trade at least two of the aforementioned guards for ones that can shoot threes OR punt 3PTM and trade some of the your guards with more egregious field goal percentages for players with better ones. If you choose the latter, you should be targeting players like Tony Parker, Luol Deng, Gerald Wallace, Carmelo Anthony and Richard Hamilton.
I did some trades to improve my team.
Ben Gordon for J-Rich (to improve those %s)
Michael Redd for Josh Howard (to improve 3PTM)
Kevin Martin for Ellis (improve %s and 3PTM)
Ming and Lee for Wade and Darko (improve Rebs, FG% FT%)
You think these trades were smart and improved or am I still in some trouble?
Ming and Lee for Wade and Darko was a good trade?
I think it was fine for your team but I'll admit I am biased against Wade because I want my guards to shoot threes.
By moving Wade and Ellis, you traded away your likely dominance in steals. However, even though it's really difficult to tell with 6 team leagues, it looks like you've managed to create a very balanced team that should be strong in every category.
Deng for Artest was rejected. Now that I moved Ellis, I seem a little short in steals, would a straight up trade of deng for barbosa help me? And is ricky davis expendable now that he's been traded?
You should be competitive in steals with Davis, Iguodala, Smith and Felton.
I'd wait on moving Ricky Davis until we see how he'll do in Miami. With Wade out, Davis should put up some great numbers. If that happens, if would be a great time to try to move him for someone with more permanent value, possibly packaging Deng as well.
If you do end up trading Deng, I'd try to get someone that can rebound close to his levels hence my suggestions of Harrington and Josh Howard earlier.
Barbosa would certainly help your 3PTM, but not much else. I think you'd be much better off trying to get a multiplayer deal and get someone more valuable than Barbosa and then get someone like Raja Bell.
