Dear RotoRob: Go for Mo or Break for Blake

January 28, 2007 | By RotoRob | comment on this post
Milwaukee Bucks point guard Mo Williams will return from injury soon.
Mo Williams has had to fight his way through injuries this year, but if you hang on just a bit, he will reward you in the second half.

Dear RotoRob,

Mo Williams, Steve Blake, Sam-I-Am, Jameer Nelson and Luke Ridnour ‘ who would you rather have?


Hey Douglas,

If you want to ride the hot hand here, go for Blake. Your best long-term bet is Williams.

By the way, is that Sam Cassell you mean? I just realized at first I thought it was Samuel Dalembert.

Dear RotoRob,

Once again, you are right on.’You’re the man.

I didn’t pull this trade (Allen Iverson and Raymond Felton for Joe Johnson), because I still wanted to see how Iverson plays with Carmelo Anthony (I also have Anthony), and they didn’t disappoint me last night.’Hopefully, this is a new beginning for both of them.’

How about trading Pau Gasol and Rasheed Wallace for Dirk Nowitzki and Mike Miller?’Should I go ahead and pull this one off?

Please advise.



Hey Ace,

Glad to be of service.

So far, so good for AI and ‘Melo. Those two seem driven to make it work.

As for your trade, I have two questions for you: why are you still reading this and can I join your league?

That deal is a slam dunk, dude. Make it happen!

    Paul “Worthless fantasy player this season” Gasol and Rasheed “6th man” Wallace for Dirk “THe constant” Nowitzki and Mike “solid numbers only” Miller sounds like a helluva deal to me too. I ask Rob for alot of help, but I would have pulled this trigger before asking him.

    Gasol is off this year with injury, so he was taken too high in many leagues. Wallace saw his value plummet when C-Webb hit the spot. The ONLY way Gasol/Wallace do better than Nowitzki/Miller is if Gasol gets real helthy, real quick. And, Wallace finds a way to get about 7 years younger.

  2. RotoRob says:

    I agree James. I do think Gasol could have plenty more value if the deal to the Bulls goes through and generally, he’s picked his game up of late. Wallace, on the other hand, seems lost at times and his act is growing tired in Detroit. Could be time for another change for him too.

    I’ve been an avid reader of yours on all year, and I finally had my first trade offer of the basketball season that is worth seeking outside consideration. I’m currently sitting five games behind first in my H2H league, with a solid squad. I’ve been trying to get Chris Paul all year, and his owner finally offered me a decent trade, but I’m still riding the fence.

    Give: Josh Howard and Kevin Martin
    Receive: Chris Paul and Manu Ginobli

    The Paul for Howard is a no-brainer in my opinion. Even with Paul’s injury, he’s just too good to pass up. Plus, I’m really short in point guards sporting Gilbert Arenas and Charlie Bell as my only two options. As for Manu for Martin, the Spurs have a horrendous upcoming schedule, including this week, and worst off, he’s now coming off the bench in relief of Barry. Manu did put up more than 20 two nights ago, but it’s still a worry. Martin’s spark has worn off for my tastes and I’d move him, but is it worth it for Ginobli?

    Hi Brad,

    Thanks for the support, man. Just on deadline for my Position Battles column right now, so will tackle your question in my next Dear RotoRob, coming later this week.
