I've been offered DJ Augustin, Rudy Gay, and Dwight Howard for my Beno Udrih, Stephen Jackson, and Al Horford....

Gay and Howard!?!? Seems like an automatic accept. I'd win by a ton in rebounds and blocks, obviously, and I'd also win in steals and points. It'd pretty much be a wash in three's made and assists.Where I'm concerned is that I'd lose in FG%, FT%, and Turnovers by a pretty hefty margin.

Is this trade worth it? Currently this team is struggling pretty mightily in 10th place, largely in part to the injuries to Aaron Brooks and Andre Iguodala. Is this what I need to get back on track?

I have the second fewest turnovers in the league so far. This would obviously change.
I have the third best FG% in the league right now. This would probably change a little, but not drastically.
I'm third from LAST in rebounds. This trade would help me there.
I'm next to last in points. This trade would help me a bit there.

Current team is:


PG - Beno Udrih
SG - Corey Brewer (for steals only)
G - Stephen Jackson
SF - Kevin Durant
PF - Al Horford
F - Marvin Williams
C - Chris Kaman
C - Darko Milicic (for blocks only)
UTL - Vince Carter
UTL - Andrew Bogut
Bench - Mike Bibby, Andre Iguodala, Aaron Brooks

It's not a bad deal for either team, really. It appears lopsided at first, but I think Gay started hot and Jax started a little slow (you can see both reverting to their norms a bit more in the last few games).

I don't think you mentioned if this was an H2H or Roto league. Your answer tips the scale to who is the better center.

Even though Augustin is a better fantasy option than Udrih, if you're in a roto league, I'd prefer both Horford to Howard and Jax to Gay. If you're in an H2H league - I'd say take the offer.

It's roto, and yeah I'm thinking I'm going to decline, or maybe counter with something a little different. I know for sure that I don't really want to get rid of Jackson - he's way too good at getting some of everything, and this gives me a good excuse not to trade my home town Horford.

Thanks for the help!
