NBA Mailbag: Jimmy Butler or Paul George?
NBA Mailbag: Jimmy Butler or Paul George?

A lot of things can change across the fantasy basketball landscape with the NBA trade deadline looming Thursday. This week's mailbag column also has some trade questions, so let's dive right in and try to sort these out.

If you have a question that you'd like answered in next week's column, reach out to me on Twitter @rotomikebarner.

Should I trade Bojan Bogdanovic for Ricky Rubio and Jarrett Allen? - @DaglesBagels

This is a really interesting trade. In terms of receiving two players for one, you wouldn't expect to see a deal in which you receive two starters for Bogdanovic. However, he's been as good as it gets on the offensive end since joining the Jazz, averaging 21.2 points and 3.3 three-pointers per game. His field goal percentage has dropped compared to last year because of a dramatic increase in attempts from behind the arc, but it's still not bad at 45.4 percent.

Rubio is having a productive season overall with averages of 12.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, 8.6 assists and 1.4 steals. While his 40.1 percent shooting from the field might be a drag, it is somewhat offset by receiving Allen in this deal, who is shooting 65 percent from the field. Clearly, trading away Bogdanovic for these two would result in a significant decrease in three-pointers. However, if your team can withstand the loss in that category, this is a great trade to make given the help that Rubio and Allen can provide in so many different categories.
