1094 and up to 12th.

AD, Harden and Giannis in beast mode. Traded KD who also beasted to LBJ who didn't.
Beal worked out ok, bit worried he might be traded this week.

Some super impressive scores in the league.

I think people will flock to Bryant, another on my radar is Richaun Holmes, but he's a bit more expensive. I'm sure 1 of them will come in for Collins tho.
Unsure about further trades.
I was really keen on Homes last week, but opted for Leonard who was 1m cheaper... I have to stop taking the cheaper guy just to try and get a bit more cash on court.

Booker & Russell to cardboard cut outs

LaVine may have saved himself so lookout DDR.

IN: PG cheap rookie , Leonard , RW
Doncic - > White
Booker - > Leonard (via DDR)
Russell - > Westbrook

Leaves me :-

WESTBROOK , Sexton / WHITE
DeRozan , LaVine / Trier
Ayton / Bryant
Durant , LEONARD / Bridges
Davis , James / Clark

see how we go :)

Scored 920 and dropped 35 places to 135. Happy with my new recruits Capela and Harden but disappointed about captaining LeBron and not having AD.

Current trades are
Out: B Forbes, J McGee, C Capela
In: M Conley, T Bryant, K Leonard
Remaining salary: 2,359,000

Team:
PG: G Antetokounmpo, M Conley, (C Sexton)
SG: J Harden, L Doncic, (M Monk)
C: D Ayton, (T Bryant)
SF: L James, K Leonard, (M Bridges (CHA))
PF: N Mirotic, P Siakam, ( J Hernangomez)

Will either upgrade Doncic next week by downgrading Hernangomez freeing up approximately 5 million or trade Mirotic to Westbrook via L James and G Antetokounmpo.

Early thoughts are:

LBJ > Kawhi
Collins > Holmes
Connaughton > Bogdanovic (Kings)

Still need to do something with Forbes but it might have to wait. Don't want to take the $$$ loss on LBJ, he might be due a rest over the next 2 weeks anyway.

stuck between Giannis and Conley in or Westbrook and DDR (ended the week with a bang)

first option gives me a simple pathway into Westbrook next week so I’m kinda leaning that way.

rotoworld reported he’ll only play when he’s 100% if that helps at all. means he could be a while yet.
Cheers mate , a few "lesser known" (to me anyway) Indiana players were in the ponts this week , maybe because of his absence or maybe not , will see how they go next week.

Not sure if it’s becaise of how often they play but it’s amazing how vague the injury reports are..

Trying to work out what to do with Doncic.

Think im set now. Going to bring in RWB and Kawhi, at the expense of 2 of last weeks ins LBJ and Beal. Like i said before, don't want to lose anymore cash on LBJ and worried about Beal getting traded.
3rd trade is Connaughton to Josh Jackson from the Suns. TJ and Booker are both under clouds and missing games and Jackson has a rounded game, and is playing some decent minutes. Love a nice cheap SG.
Forbes and Collins survive another week, White seems the best PG rookie, whilst I would just like 1 more look at Bryants minutes before committing.

RWB, Sexton (Forbes)
Harden, Crabbe (Jackson)
Ayton (Collins)
Giannis, Kawhi (Osman)
Davis (C), Siakam (Bagley)

A full compliment will give my team 32 games.

I want to trust Kawhi, i really do....
I'm going to put faith in him. Plays no B2B's in his 4 games this week.
Starts on a B2B next week but it is against formidable opposition in the Clippers and Warriors, it's been said he's close to playing them, i think with those fixtures that's as good a time as any that it will happen.

The price is still so very good.
