  1. Hello there,
    I am in a Dilemma here again. My team is as follows:

    Chris Paul
    Tony Parker
    Jose Calderon
    Chauncey Billups*
    Monta Ellis
    Luol Deng
    Danny Granger
    Ryan Anderson
    Josh Smith
    Dirk Nowitzki
    Al Jefferson
    Marc Gasol
    Roy Hibbert

    I just traded away Chris Bosh and Jason Terry for Tony Parker and Chauncey Billups. I really need some help in my rebounding department and blocks too. I took Chauncey so that I can pick up a rebounder+blocker from FA. I have Brook Lopez in FA, should I grab him from FA when he is healthy?? Also I am trying to ship Monta for Greg Monroe, is that good for my team??
    The viable players for me in FA are:
    Kris Humphries ——> when lopez is back, worried his stats won’t be the same
    Samuel Dalembert —-> not enough playing time, sometimes a dud
    Brook Lopez —–> not sure about his return and if he will be the same but his numbers are good
    Marcus Camby —–> same as dalembert
    Antawn Jamison —–> FT% sucks
    Paul George** ——-> really contemplating on getting him if I get the Monroe deal
    Andre Miller **—–> sometimes a dud too
    Nick Young **
    Jeff Teague **
    Thaddeus Young**
    Nicolas Batum**

    **- IF in case I get Monroe then these are the options open in place of Monta Ellis

    Hope you can help me out here..

    1. Sorry to hear about that trade.

      Yes Brook Lopez is an excellent pick up, and the time do it is now. He is already healthy practicing with the team. He should be a starter by the time we return from the All-Star Break.

      Antwan Jamison is too valuable of a fantasy player to be a Free Agent. He should be added before Brook Lopez, the scoring and rebounds will be more consistent. Especially with no Anderson Varejao the shots will be there all season.

      You can ship Monta for Monroe, though your team does not seem to need another center. I am a little worried about Monta, but I think when the season is all said and done he will be an elite option.
