definitely!!! lavine will regress but jimmy buckets and simmons are two top players in fantasy and butler is killing it and simmons will continue to do fairly well but rashaun Holmes isn't great

I don’t think you should. No one really knows what’s going on with the Heat this year, can  Jimmy stay on the floor. What I might consider is Lavine for Simmons straight up, but Lavine is putting up great value with high volume. Even if he sinks to 45% FG but keeps his rebounds and assists at 5 he would be outperforming Simmons. So a 1 for 1 swap I would do. Wouldn’t do the proposed trade at all.

what has shown that Jimmy can't stay on the floor? sure he tested positive but wih the league taking more annitiative  he'll be fine, also he had a mild injury, also simmons and butler are dominant players for lavine who is also solid for Holmes who at the start of the season was rostered in 60% of leagues! and isn't even a reliable player to score 35 fpts! I know lavine has been good thaddous young has been dominant and otto porter is coming back, also I just feel like you have to get simmons and butler otherwise you will regret it, it seems clear

@twintalkmn21 it more has to do with the fact that Butler misses time just because he does. Now he may not because the Heat are in such a hole right now but I trust Lavine and Holmes to stay on the court longer and be more beneficial toward hitting a wider array of categories. If you are punting 3s, FT% and your team is designed for that, then definitely go for that. But if your team is more balanced I’d keep the balance.

how can you trust Holmes? he is unpredictable and Whiteside could be breathing down his neck, also just becuase the heat are in a whole I think they will improve once herro returns, butler has only played -10 games this year and Adebayo has barely played, also if you want to talk about struggling teams talk about the bulls! they are 1 game above the heat and I don't know how they will improve, also I feel even if it would put a little imbalance on your team I still think it would be a great idea to do it and would definitely improve your team

@twintalkmn21 I don’t think Lavines stats won’t fall off. I think Whiteside will remain in a 5-15 mins capacity and Jimmy misses on average 15-20 games for his career. He’s already missed a bunch for COVID so he could be in the running to miss more than his average. I hope not because I like Jimmy. I just don’t like how they impact the categories as a 2-some. So I would ask for a different player instead of Jimmy

I know jimmy is on the older end but every guy has injury concerns, it's clear jimmy has more concern than others but I still feel that this side of the deal is better also would you add mitchell robinson and drop Wayne Ellington
