Hello Kidd

 | January 4, 2009 11:22 AM

I can’t stop tinkering with my fantasy basketball team.  My team has pulled away a little from #2 and #3 but things change quickly.

Fri, Jan 2 11:56 AM PST my trade for Kidd was accepted after many trades and counter-trades.  It went go through Sun, Jan 4 12:28 PM PST.  It looks good based on the 2009 stats.

Rodney Stuckey 3.84 18 30 .471 .764 0.4 3.2 5.1 1.3 0.2 13.5
J.R. Smith 3.53 19 34 .449 .685 1.9 3.9 2.2 0.9 0.1 13.6
Jason Kidd 10.85 2 33 .413 .769 1.5 6.4 8.5 2.5 0.5 8.6

The trade looks good because, except for FG% and PTS, Kidd outperforms Stuckey.  Kidd really is stellar for steals and has great rebounds for a point guard.  However Stuckey sometimes has games as though he is the next Dwayne Wade like this game on Jan. 2 where he scored 38 points, adding seven assists, two steals, and four rebounds.  It made me wish I hadn’t consummated the deal.  In fact before I offered Stuckey and Duhon for Kidd and canceled because Stuckey soon scored 40 points.  At least I was able to trade for Kidd for a cheaper price.

Update: Last night Kidd scored 0 points while Stuckey had a stellar game with 24 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals.  I hope Kidd is not hurt.  I am regretting this trade more and more.  Maybe I should stop trading. 🙂

If you stopped trading now, would it be similar to buying high and selling low? 🙂
