A Gordon-Humphries Swap Could Still Be On The Table

15 posts in this topic

Nets and Bobcats discussed a Humphries-Ben Gordon swap in the past. Could still be on the table for Boston.

 

Chris Mannix: Keep an eye on Charlotte as a possible landing spot for Kris Humphries. Rival execs skeptical he stays in Boston. Twitter

 

What would you guys think of this?

 

Gordon officially opted in, so this could certainly be an option.

If Ben Gordon hates playing here he most certainly will hate for a rebuilding Boston with Rondo as the leader

It's not like he has a no trade clause though...

Yeah Ben may have no choice lol.

 

But if we lose Hendo, and trade Ben.... who plays SG for us?  Taylor, who backs him up?

 

I wouldn't mind it but I'm not sure it would work out, would be come off the bench?  Wouldn't you want Zeller playing PF as a starter and Biz at center (or another person who is a center)?  Not sure this works out now.

Jeff Taylor would indeed be the backup... Seth Curry could potentially be on the roster as well.

After it's all said an done though, I'd rather keep Ben "Shoot Every Shot" Gordon.

We lose a scorer that we need for a rebounder that we need. I don't think it'll win us a lot of games or make us look a lot better, it basically boils down to who will help the young guys more.

Both are on the final year of their contracts as well.

Gordon is not a scorer that we need. His days of scoring are long gone. Humphries would instantly give us a presence inside along with Zeller. Humphries is a pretty good rebounder. We're not going to suddenly win a lot of games, but that's the plan. We want all the good pieces that we can have to build through "one" last draft (2014).

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
