Default Kevin Durant...do I put him on the block?

Ok, let me start by saying that I absolutely love this kid.....BUT, his team is so incredibly bad, I wonder how many more 25+ point games he will have until teams start to double him. Is it a good time to put him on the trading block?

Thats a good point you bring up but look at kobe. Scorers will find a way to score. I think he will continue to get at least 20+. If they double team him that just means more ast for you. I would put him on the block just to see what you can get. If there is a player you think is worth it then take it.

Thats what I was thinking. I just posted a league message that I was entertaining offers for him

They're not gonna double him unless Seattle starts winning games

Personally I'd only do it if he's killing your FG percentage!
He takes alot of outside shots and I'm not sure he's gonna suddenly shot a high percentage.

I agree, I project he will be around 41% for the season. I see alot of 8 for 22's for him this season

There isn't much evidence to support this. 3 of his games have been 47.8% or higher with 2 games over 50%.

I would put him on the block (I am), but I wouldn't settle for any less then a stud in return.

We don't know how good he can be this year. Top 30? Top 20? Better?

I have had offers of Ray Allen, Melo and VC for Durant and I don't know what to do. Mind you, my league is a keeper league.

Durant is gonna be just fine...the boy can ball...flat out.

If you are trading him don't think you are selling high. He is a bonafide baby stud. Is there another term for young male horse?
