Let me start out by saying I love MKG.. I love his hustle on the defensive end.. I love his ability to finish at the hoop.. I love his work ethic and humble personality..

WITH all that said, we have to trade him for a scoring SF or a scoring SG and let Batum slide to SF.. I knew going into this that he never was gunna be a project that ends up being a 20pt scorer on avg.. I dont think anyone has/had that vision.. but I did hope that he would develope that killer instinct - that when he has the ball, he will make you defend him tough and make you have to protect the rim - ie. Kenneth Faried or better yet - our own beloved Gerald Wallace. But that does not seems to be happening now that we are 4 year into his career.

If we are seriously thinking about making some sort of push past the Hawks, Bulls, Celtics and Pistons of the East and move up towards the Raptors or dare I say become more than a sweep-able team to the Cavs - then we need to make a trade for a better scoring option on our roster.. Bellineli has been playing well as of late but I wouldnt trust him in the starting lineup..

What say you?

I agree we need another scorer but getting rid of MKG to get one is not the answer imo. I don't know who we could move otherwise but I think we need to get a starter at sg move Batum back to SF and keep MKG as our Tony Allen off the bench defender/agitator/sixth man. Given how cheap his contact is just seems like something that is too valuable to just give up.

MKG is the overall #2 pick making more $$$ than Kemba right now.. he is not coming off the bench..

We still need good defenders too man

a scorer and defender can come in the same package - it doesn't have to be "either/or"

I would consider if the deal was fair.   MKG is going to get hurt again, sadly, it's just going to happen.   With him in the lineup, we're still hurting for scoring.   Kemba cannot be the only scorer we have.

Wilson Chandler is always injured

Rudy Gay is the NBA's Sam Bradford

Utah would never trade Hayward

Dragic's big contract. Miami Doesn't need MKG they have Winslow as a Defensive stopper / Questionable Jumpshooter

pointing out their short comings doesn't make MKG a better player.. even with their faults - all their PER's are better than MKG..

I could propose trading for Paul George or Melo - but we know that is a pipe dream.. look, i think we all have to agree he is becoming a problem - Bellineli is starting to get more minutes than him in our lineup - and it sure AIN'T because of his defense, lol.. it's because he can space the floor.. if MKG goes off for 20 pts I'm all for it, but i know he will come back with a 5 pt night with all his shots coming at the rim or 5-10 ft away.. that doesn't help us offensively.. we need someone to be able to help Kemba not have to go BONKERS in the 4th to win us a game..

The only thing I pointed out is that Wilson Chandler is often injured.

The only trade that was some what feasible is the Rudy Gay trade. But even then he's a free agent after the season and the Kings doesn't seem interested in trading him.

Even if Utah was willing to trade Hayward that wouldn't be enough to acquire him.

Wilson Chandler has been playing well lately, why would they trade him now after keeping him through some injury filled seasons?

Miami doesn't need MKG, so why would they trade for him?

If you proposed trades that were realistic I could at least see your point but none of those trades were realistic, may as well reach for the stars with Carmelo - Paul George trade scenarios.

He's gluing our team.  He's one of the best defenders at his position and getting better offensively.  Why trade him?
