    I'm not in this league, but as head of the trade committee in the Baseline I had to say something when I read this.

    This may be one of the most comically lopsided trades I've ever seen. CPU rape doesn't even begin to adequately describe this trade. Why in the world would Houston want to do this trade?

    Good rule of thumb when proposing a CPU trade for review - if you were to propose the same trade to a user, would said user kick you in the nuts and tell you to gtfo? If so, go back to the drawing board. Sorry JFace907 if I have overstepped myself here.

    It was actually one of the trades that came back from trade finder when i was looking to get rid of two of the 5 point guards i have. Didnt think the trade was that far fetched being that houston dont have a real backup pg unless u consider toney douglas to be that.

    The CPU trade logic in the trade finder is flawed. I've had it offer to give me Derrick Rose for Caron Butler in the past.

    The rule we use in Baseline is that a trade with the CPU must make the CPU team better, otherwise you run the risk of users fleecing the CPU teams and making them irrelevant.

    Another flaw in the Trade Finder is that it will find you a trade and the CPU will STILL decline it. But as Dru mentioned, this trade is horribly lopsided. You take two kids and give them two washed up overpaid vets.

    I think the trade finder is wonderful and completely accurate. It said Cleveland would trade me Kyrie Irving for Joe Johnson, so I'll go ahead and post that in the trade section now JFace907 :)
