Default Help with trade ideas?

Roto League, 10 teams, FG%, FT%, 3PTM, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK

PG- Arenas
SG- Terry
G- Paul
SF- Korver
PF- Okafor
F- Sheed
C- Camby
C- Dalembert
Util- Mike James
Util- Haywood
BN- Bogut
BN- Stephen Jackson
BN- Artest

I'm getting killed in FG% and FT% (ranked dead last in both), which has been a little bit of bad luck so far with bad shooting from my big men for FG and so-so shooting for my guards from the line. I'm also hurting in pts and steals, I wasn't expecting the trouble in steals. Obviously my team will be changing after Nov 14 with the return of Artest and Jackson.

What trades do you see me making to improve my team? It looks like I have some room to trade big men, so who do you see me getting rid of, and what players should I be shopping for? Thanks for the thoughts.

Arenas is probably the cause of your low fg%, I own him also and he's killed me especially in 3pt%...but he will be in better shape soon . Id' target Rondo for nice fg% and steals from the point. Also Maggette for having more upside this year plus a heavy dose of foul line help, maybe West in NO.

Thanks EL3U. More ideas please? I'd like to get some feedback while I try to sit patiently with Artest and Jackson.

I think you should wait for one more week and see what Agent 0 is gonna do.

He's been extremely poor on 3's and sloppy for the previous games. He'll bounce back and have a monster night soon.

Any more thoughts? Which big men should I move, and who am I looking to grab? Thanks.

I think you only need 3 maybe 4 centers. To many centers not will out a scoirng touch. Maybe you can trade Okafor-Dalembert for Yao.

Camby
Haywood
Sheed-filling a forward spot

is your core in my eyes

Okafor/Dalembert is tradable to make space for anything. Artest-Sjax while improving your depth.

You have decent free throw shooters. Chalk that up to a bad week.

If Arenas knee keeps bother him. Package him with one of your centers for something nice.

Thoughts on starting Bogut tonight in one of my Util spots? I hate to waste them like I did on Mike James last night.

Bogut vs who...i think you have a lot of 3 point shooters. So playing him is advisable. Hopefully it will help your last place fg%.
