I am punting the assist category in order to become very strong in others. In that vein, I want to trade TJ Ford and possibly Kevin Garnett. The trade I was considering for Ford is straightup for Deng. Deng will give me a high % game with rebs at the G position as well as steals and low TO's. Is that a good idea, or is there someone else out there better than Deng at the G position for what I need.
Also, Garnett is an absolute stud, but I don't need his high # of assists because it will be in vain without any help. Thinking of trading him for Marion + 1 if possible...any ideas of what to do with an absolute beast of a fantasy player when you don't need one of the categories that makes him so good? Thanks for your help in advance. Here is my team
It is a 10 team, 9 cat, h2h league with a 3g, 3f, 1c, 2 utility setup

So you don't think I should punt the assist category? If that was the case I would keep ford and pick up someone else for assists? Any ideas who to trade and for who? I was pretty intent to get rid of Ford for Deng and then shop Garnett around until I landed a good deal somehow
Look at my pointguards. I need to play 3 and the ones I have are 3 point shooters with high % low TO games. Allen, Bell, and Gibson(picked up yesterday) are all 3 point shooters, none are assist machines except TJ Ford. So it wouldn't make sense to trade them as they fit into what I'm trying to do. Garnett is a monster obviously, but part of that is because he averages 20 pts, 10 rebs, and around 8 assists, along with the blocks and steals and everything else that makes him good obviously. Marion is a similar player, shoots 3's, gets blocks and steals like a madman. His value isn't tied to his assists like Garnett's, make sense?
Yeah, the ONLY way I would ever get rid of KG is if I got a sick 2 for 1 deal for him. But you're right I'm not sure what I want to do about my assists. I have an excess of forwards so I could easily trade butler, west, wallace, etc, for a top end point guard. Tough decisions, I'm glad I already have a good team and am set to be either 14-4 or 15-3 after this week
