Was just offered DeRozan/La. Ball for my Simmons. Accept?? (WHIR!)

Easy accept, no doubts.

Could you elaborate further?  Simmons is obviously the best of the bunch and I'm not sold on Ball's ROS trajectory.  Maybe I need to be knocked to my senses?

I like Simmons.

Of the 10 PGs averaging 7+ assists: he’s one of two (Morant) with FG% above .500%;  one of three (Westbrook/Doncic) with 8+ assists and 8+ rebounds; only one with 1.5+ steals and only one with almost 1 block per game. Weaknesses are .644 FT%,  13pts/game and no 3pts  

it’s pretty hard finding a very good point guard providing big men stats.  You can always make up 3pts from hot FAs. 
If you accept DeRozan/LaMelo, you will need to drop a player. If LaMelo underperforms, which he’s been doing for a while, chances are that you’ll be apprehensive to drop him since you got him from a trade and limit add/drop flexibility

Really appreciate this response and break down.  It's a tough one to turn down when presuming 'Melo will eventually start or get more consistent minutes down the stretch.  But yeah, I think that settled it for me.  Much appreciated!  Let me know if you need some thoughts on anything.
