Re: Would you make this deal in a salary cap league?
Kinda of a tough one. I like MAF clearly better than Howard for regular season. Im down on Howard this year, I just think Detroit has not gotten better defensively and he struggled last year. At times, he looked awful. MAF is a stud in the regular season.
I do think MAF will get paid next year. But, overall, Id say MAF is gonna be better than Howard by a big enough margin to roll the dice. I would do it.
