If history tells us something (not necessarily), then this should be a down year for Lopez.
10-11 (82 games)
11-12 (5 games)
12-13 (74 games)
13-14 (17 games)
14-15 (72 games)
15-16 ( ? games)
See the pattern? I'm being a little sarcastic, but not really. There's no doubt Lopez can be a top 25 player under those settings. And you do have Curry and LeBron, so you can afford some risk, but I just tend to be the type of manager that let's somebody else deal with that kind of risk.
I don't see Towns usurping Curry or LeBron after this season as a keeper for you (and you only keep 2), so I see no reason to consider him for you this season unless you plan to use him as trade bait. And I think that would be a bad plan. He's not going to be a top player this year.
Is there anyone else you're considering? If not, Lopez is your guy.
Yes, absolutely I'd take that deal.
Who? Is he that guy that's never on my team because I never have the first pick in any draft?
In general, I'd prefer Carroll.
I have Stephenson, Chandler, Jordan and Carroll on a punt FT% team I drafted this season (along with Howard and Drummond). I see Favors and Sanders fitting into that model as well. I'd consider punting FT% and points right now (maybe assists, you'll have to play that by ear). Take a look at basketballmonster.com or rotomonster.com to see who has good/higher overall value despite poor FT% or low scoring. Guys like Rajon Rondo and James Johnson come to mind as good fit, but now's a tough time to buy on either of them given they're playing well.
