NBA Fantasy Keeper Question

Hello all-

I am taking over a keeper team for a fantasy nba basketball league. standard scoring.

PG, SG, G, SF, PF, F, C

We have to declare 5 keepers for next season now.

Here is who i am working with:
J. Tinsley (Ind - PG)
M. Redd (Mil - SG)
S. Francis (Orl - PG)
B. Simmons (LAC - GF)
E. Brand (LAC - PF)
C. Anthony (Den - SF)
Z. Ilgauskas (Cle - C)
A. Iguodala (Phi - GF,SF)
A. KirilenkoIL (Uta - F,PF)
K. Hinrich (Chi - G,PG)
L. DengIL (Chi - GF)
M. Harpring (Uta - GF,SF)

I'm thinking:
1. PF E. Brand
2. PG S. Francis
3. C Z. Ilgauskas
4. PF A. Kirilenko
5. ?

1. Kirilenko
2. Brand
3. Francis
4. Redd
5. This one is debatable. You can go with Ilgauskus, Hinrich or even Carmelo.

Keep Kirilenko, Redd, Brand, Anthony, and Hinrich. I suppose that you could make arguments to keep Francis but I think that his low fg% and high TOs ends up hurting you in the long run.

I'd take Carmelo or Hinrich over Redd. To me Redd is a 1 dimensional player, sort of like an Alan Houston. Although, I'm sure he does shoot at a higher percentage than the two guys I suggested.

What exactly is standard scoring? The way my league scores the top 5 guys would easily be:

Kirilenko, Brand, Francis, Ilgauskas, and Hinrich

Carmelo and Redd are simply too one dimensional. Iguadola is intersting in a keeper sense if he can make a leap foward

1. Kirilenko (obvious, young and a stud)
2. Brand (obvious)
3. Francis (The turnovers hurt, but his all-around contribution can't be denied)
4. Redd (Predict he'll go to Cleveland in off-season, if he does, teaming with LeBron would help him out bigtime)
5. Iguodala (I think he is a great keeper. I look for him to make a nice step forward next year. I project him as a mix between Kirilenko/Marion type player down the road - as in he won't average big points; Ok Marion scored a lot this year - and helped lead me to the title) but as a guy who can stuff a stat sheet, and contribute in all categories.
