And someone said Motiejunas could have gone #2 over all in this draft. I'll find it.
If we didn't want to give him a max offer, and no other team he visited did, why do you think a team would want to pay him the max AND give up a bunch of assets to get him? He has talent, but he is extremely injury prone and immature. If we match a max offer and he gets injured and is out for the season what do you think his trade value is then?
Hornets aren't going to get fair value for Gordon just like they didn't with CP3
Houston can offer the best package, by far....
Houston gets: Gordon and Jack (they need a PG now)
N.O. gets: Montiejunas, Lamb, and either White/Jones + Toronto's 1st round pick
Fair value, IMO, and McHale is tripping out over all of the rookies that he has to work with. He is demanding veterans, and he gets 2 veteran starters here. Not sure about the salaries, but we could make it work with a filler or 2.
C - Smith, Ayon, Montejunas
PF - Davis, Brand, TJones
SF - Aminu, Henry, Miller
SG - Martin, Lamb/Rivers
PG - Jack, Vasquez/Rivers
We can try to flip Brand, Jack, and Martin at the deadline unless we're in the playoff race letting them expire at the end of season which is fine. Also we could trade guys like Henry and Vasquez as well to give Miller and Rivers playing time.
Also, I think Rivers and Lamb could complEment each other well.
jack or rivers or vasquez
aminu, t. jones
a davis, t. jones
We will be lacking so much darn weight!
Houston is not going to trade for him, unless they somehow get Howard and want to have another player to add to that. Guys that are overpaid don't have nearly as much value as they used to. Many teams may see a max contract to a guy that is always injured as a liability.
I'm amazed at what people think we can get for him in a S&T for the max.
And the max is a technical term and doesn't mean nearly what it used to. In actuallity, if there was no maximum, and Gordon was an unrestricted free agent, he would get offerred a bunch more.
People can question his toughness, and it would be completely valid. But at the end of the day, the guy is a great great basketball player. And no one can deny that.
He's a great talent, but not a great player yet.
What about Childress? He was good in Atlanta, with the right amount of PT he could be a steal! Like how the Suns got Beasley!!!
Lamb was probably the best SG in the draft and we got a HUGE steal with him. We even traded up to get him and he's been compared to Reggie Miller...you honestly think we're gonna let him go soon? That's cute.
We gave up Kyle Lowry who is arguably a top 8 PG in this league to get Toronto's 1st rd pick. No way in hell we give that up for Eric "glass" Gordon.
But I can see White/Jones/Dooling/lottery protected 1st for Gordon....maybe we throw in Morris too but idk if Morey will do that for such an injury prone tweener guard...trust me we've had our share of injuries the past few years no need to add to that
Well it does say "sign Gordon", which they technically did. Even though i hate Gordon in a suns jersey, i do have to admit that that is a great quality signature! it looks real professional and high quality. signature it self gets an A in my book. The subject matter gets a F.
Well my cousins a big, BIG suns fan and he said NO WAY IN HELL suns give up warrick so I didn't even think about it. What about that Telfair kid? He was really good in highschool and we need a veteran proven PG like telfair to teach Rivers how to run the point!!
You are tolling. Telflair is trash. We have Jack to be that vet for Rivers.
Dude sorry! I just don't watch a lot of suns games.
Why is no one interested in Brown though? He's crazy athletic!
