12tm standard h2h. Is it time to trade Middleton since he's not giving 2-3 rd value?

Thanks

You could but if it's a 1-for-1, not likely you'd get equal (or near) value.

Definitely don't want to trade down in value.

Khris and another piece as a 2-for-1 might work depending on the deal.

You're welcome Alpit, thanks for the shoutout.

With a first place team that's been winning week to week, you don't want to unnecessarily disrupt any chemistry, doubly so in h2h.

Team 1: I would look at Mikal for Kleber. You're already set for blocks and Mikal gets more steals about as many 3s and has a higher upside than Kleber. You lose one game in h2h playoffs.

Team 2- I think I like Marv better than Kleber overall. Same playoff schedule.

Not convinced on SGA down the stretch. I would probably stream til RoCo or Capela came back.

Completely dif skill sets so it depends if your team needs points and 3s or blocks and FGs.

I need Mitch more for more of my teams cuz the blocks are just so dominating. If you don't need the blocks(or are punting)/ aren't worried about efficiency cats, you can roll with Portis' 4-4-4.

Klay is a bit better overall in 9-cat but when Niko and RoCo (and Harris) get back, you're set with threes so you need the steals and assists more.

Especially seeing as Dunn is one of the two players I'm not so high on, the other being Lamb.

I think you need his steals and assists to remain competitive.

That would leave Lamb and I would consider White for the defense when he comes back(Lamb for the efficiency)- same h2h playoff schedule.

Hey Chef!
I am in a H2H 9 cat league with a traditional playoff schedule.

I am in 4th place and look good to make the playoffs. I am wondering about making one if two trades to bolster the number of games come playoffs.

How concerned would you be about a possible shut down for Bradley Beal? Would you try to trade for him given their 12 games and if so, I am seriously considering selling Kawhi for him (not straight up but in some package) just because he has 2 back to backs during the playoffs and seems to still be hit or miss/unreliable.

Is that being too cute and should I just keep the status quo?

Thanks in advance for the awesome advice here and in your articles!!

Hey Kooks,

I also fear the desire to get too cute with it, but I think your reservations about Kawhi are valid, and even aside from the b2bs there's a chance he misses a game or two.

Washington is 3 games out of 8th so I don't think he's a very high risk to be shut down (though there is always some). I think that's a good trade especially if you can get another piece that boosts a cat where you might have a need.

Cool,
Thank you for the advice. I will probably do that then and see if I can wrestle another key piece from him.
