I really think Monty and Dell could help cousins.
Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
We have to get Bledsoe he is an absolute beast. He will be the best defensive PG in the NBA on this team. Mini LeBron is an understatement. But really he can do everything LeBron does at the PG position. I think with starters minutes he lead PGs in Steals, Rebounds, Blocks, and has potential to be right up with the scorers and assists leaders once developed better. I love Gordon but would rather a backcourt of Bledsoe/Rivers/George or Bledsoe/Rivers/Deng then a Rivers/Gordon/George-Deng or Bledsoe/Rivers-Gordon/?. I really believe if we can get Bledsoe and maybe move Gordon for a good SF asset in return once value rises will set us for the future. We are in the Western Finals by year 3 if we make some moves.
Man I should have lool at this topic before making the Cousins one, sorry
I guess I'm the only one who would rather keep the draft pick. Before somebody responds that Gordon could take us out of that range, he has to actually stay healthy long enough to make a big impact. If we get towards the end of the season and are in "tank" mode then no reason to have Gordon in there
Give me Bledsoe but not for this years first. Make it 2014 top 3 protected and the players.
I don't understand why people think Houston would give up Parsons... He's under an amazing contract and is their starter for a foreseeable future. The Rockets got rid of Budinger in order to give Parson bigger minutes. Put down the crack pipe people.
Knicks didn't "give up on" Galinari, Chandler, Mozgov, etc. - they just identified a star and in this league you usually have to give in order to get.
"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
But to each their own
If Philly really is entertaining the idea of moving Bynum, I would bet my life that at least a half a dozen GM's are willing to make a trade. Heck, teams were offering packages for Oden every year that he was hurt. There are franchises (like Houston) that will never land a Wadeor Bosh or Lebron in free agency and they will never be bad enough to draft an Anthony Davis, so they have to take big risks to get their stars.
I understand that you (or I) wouldn't do it in a million years if we were a GM, but that is not good rationale for saying that no GM would do it. Some simply would.
Keep pick draft shabazz
SIGN A SF
"I don't know if people know — I dislocated my pinkie finger. And [Tyreke] told me, 'You wanna go home or you wanna be here?' I want to be here. And he said, 'All right, then go tape it up and let's play. Let's go. We not stoppin' at no stores. Straight gas. That's what we do, just keep going.'"
http://m.espn.go.com/nba/story?storyId=3917505New Orleans Hornets' last 12 games before the All-Star break with a sprained left ankle. But that had nothing to do with why he failed his physical with the Oklahoma City Thunder and was thus sent back to the Hornets on Wednesday
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyson_Chandler"However, he failed the physical because of a toe injury, and one day later, the Thunder announced that they rescinded the trade"
http://www.nba.com/2009/news/02/18/c....ap/index.html"Chandler failed a physical Wednesday, and the Thunder backed out of the deal that sent Chris Wilcox, Joe Smith and second-round pick DeVon Hardin to New Orleans"
You might not classify it as a failed physical but the rest of the world does.

That is the Thunder's side of it. They needed to word it that way to back out of the trade. Check out what Chandler said after. It was his doctor who performed the physical and he was confused as to why his own doctor would now say it was degenerative.
Anyway, it doesn't really matter. This isn't about Chandler. It is about whether or not you believe some GM's are bigger risk takers than others.
