Just Some Melo / Barnes Rumors

People forget barnes is 6'8", can get to the cup, and is a better shooter than 90% of our roster...

It only makes sense under the scenario I presented, where they get in on a three team deal with Minnesota, where they end up with Barnes and Minnesota's #13, while giving #9 to Minnesota in return along with another player going to either Minnesota or the other team.

So:

GSW: Kevin Love

MN: no9 pick

CLT: Barnes + no13

????

CLT and GS would be robbing MN.

The team was near last in the NBA defensively when MKG wasn't on the floor. Close to first with him on the floor... Just saying. I've posted the stats already on another thread.

I get that. MKG's impact on defense is huge. But, again it all starts with Clifford's coaching style.

Plus, if MKG is that good defensively then I'm def not worry about having Barnes and Melo (if possible). They're not going to hurt MKG.

Barnes should play most of his minutes at PF, thats what he played in the 2013 playoffs when he looked great filling in for Lee.  Hes got decent size at 6'8 and is strong enough to defend all but a handful of PFs in the league right now, plus he gives you elite shooting from that spot.

 

Thats where the league is heading, but GS is too attached to playing Lee 35 minutes every night to see what they have in Barnes

So...

 

GS - Love

Charlotte - Barnes, #13

TWolves - #9, Player?

That trade is so bad it needed 2 MJ laughing GIFS. Giving up Kevin Love to move up in the draft 4 spots, while adding 1 other guy maybe? I mean, I had to miss something here right? LIke, David Lee, Klay Thompson, maybe more 1st rounders? Had to be a misprint.

That's why I would give up the 9th pick for Barnes. The kid can play the 2, 3, and 4. Also, he's not a finish product. Still a ton of upside.

We already seen what he could do in the NBA. Just need to do it on a consistent basis. I think if he's given the opportunity rather than having to compete behind Curry, Klay, and Iggy, he will. There's not really any guys that are projected to be there at 9 that you could say it's better than Barnes right now.

If Melo came here, I think it would mess up our chemistry.  By that I mean we would pretty much become a one man team, dumping the weight on his shoulders.  I understand Big Al would command respect, but Melo has the superstar name.  He would take it upon himself to win games I believe.  Nah, I don't want that for this team.  I would rather go hard after Kevin Love next year.  Him and Big Al would be equal partners in carrying this team, and we would be much more formidable.

Yea, I would run outside naked if that happened. But, what a stupid trade for Minny.

Maybe something like this:

GSW : Kevin Love

Minny : no9 , no.24, Lee

CLT: no13, Barnes

That's not what I said, at all.

 

GSW: Kevin Love

Minn: #9 + David Lee (OR Klay Thompson) + Henderson (OR Jeff Taylor OR a different CLT player)

CLT: Barnes + #13

You guys seriously need to take a reading comprehension class.
