Why NOT trade Deangelo?

26 posts in this topic

What is Rivera thinking by turning down offers for him? Rivera hardly lets him go in the game, yet says he will not consider any offers. Dlo is keeping this franchise from moving forward. We need to make moves in FA this year, but we have no cap space. Does anyone have one good reason to keep him? I would be begging for anything i can get. Come on, Ron! Pathetic.

Trading him away doesn't solve our salary cap problems.

Rivera isn't the one making the decisions on trades.

You turd burglars wanting players traded out this year need to stick to playing Madden.

Well, Rivera said so himself. And why does trading away a worthless player with a huge contract make me a "turd burglar"?

I understand the desire to trade away players right now. In any hope that it alleviates some cap space. I don't think people understand the cap trouble we are going to be in next year. Now, we all understand that trading away a player doesn't totally alleviate the cap space, but it does clear the yearly salary (non-guaranteed) from our books and there are numerous options on accelerating the bonus payments.

It comes down to this, is the market going to be better for these players in the off-season or right now? I would argue right now, before they get any older and while teams are desperate.

Last I heard Rivera directed all trade questions to our interim GM.

You go around looking for gifs of gay dudes? Not my place to judge.

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
