Default Al Jefferson for Amare??

I would be receiving Amare. My first initial instinct is to jump on this one, but I wanted to see what you guys thought. First off, Amare has been ranked number 1 for the last month. This is obviously due to the spike in numbers since Marion left and his great play of course. Does Shaq at all affect his future numbers?

I really see Shaq playing only 20-25 minutes a night at the very most and even that shouldnt affect Amare. If anything, he will get even more open looks. Secondly, with Phoenix just barely winning the West, they have to play out the full regular season in order to get a good spot whereas Jefferson could tank it at any time (even though hes been very consistent).

My only argument against this deal is that I'd be giving up possibly the most consistent Center in the league at the mid-point of the season. I'm sure some disagree, but Jefferson gets you 20-10 almost every night.

I want to do this...any objections?

I'd do it, unless you're in desperate need of those extra boards.

Amare has better FG%, FT%, blocks, and with him moving to his natural PF position I think he will get more points (with slightly less boards).

Well said. Amare dominates more cats if you can handle the loss of 3-4 boards per, especially fg%, which is a monster difference.

Agreed

Only go for Big Al if you need boards

also from the last games of Amare I saw
when Shaq comes back
he might start knocking down 3's too.
He's banged acouple from downtown with ease!
