Anyone have any ideas for players to absolutely avoid for this season?

i somehow ended up with andrew bynum, but finally got a trade offer for him.  the guy is damaged goods so the only way i figured i could unload him was to trade him as a packaged deal.  so the trade offer i got was bynum and mike conley for david west and rodney stuckey.  i'm looking at this and thinking it is a steal, should i pull the trigger?

I don't think it's an absolute steal...but I would do that deal just to get rid of Bynum.  I always try to target the consistent players as opposed to the high risk high reward players.  Bynum is probably the ultimate high risk high reward.  Who know's if he's healthy/motivated or whatever this year.  West is a solid player, who is consistently putting up 15-8 on a good team.  GL this year

Why the hell would you draft Bynum at this point in the season just to trade him.  His ADP is 11, which i'm sure is later than you took him b/c 11 was based on weeks and weeks of him being taken top 10, and Conley whos ADP is 40.  West's ADP is 113 and Stuckey's ADP is 106.  While in theory I think this deal could be far closer than the ADPs indicate, based on value, I believe you got completely taken to the cleaners.  If the other guy did any decent job in the first 7-8 rounds, then he potentially got a top 3 center and top 7 PG for 2 8th to 10th round picks depending on league size.

yea, you are absolutely right. i know i fucked this one up.  it was a draft that i wasn't ready for.  i ended up trading bynum and conley for david lee.  i really wanted to dump bynum because i don't think he'll do jack garbage this year, and i know conley is good but everytime i've had him he's been hurt.
