I guess MJ figures since Cho sucks at drafting is the only reason I can think of.

Ben Gordon being traded, look for a big deal. I mean Bynum just got Deng. Look for a similar trade.

Pau is not coming here. The Cats didn't just spend 13 mil per year on a center to trade for another one midseason.

Ummmm that makes no sense...

 

Why amnesty him (you still owe him his money and have to pay him his money) when you can get an expiring contract and actually save money.

 

While the trade may limit Zeller at first, in the long run it would help because he would get to learn from Boozer for the remainder of this year and next year then the Cats could let Boozer walk in free agency and let Zeller take over.

 

By the way... the Bulls are most likely getting that pick this year anyway.

 

As for trading Gordon for Pau... talks would not get far because we would have to add a contract for the salaries to match and I guarantee they would ask for MKG.

 

Welp, that's what coming out of Chicago; to amnesty Boozer.

I really dont get this.

 

This deal is expiring and we are supposed to go after a legitimate player in FA.

Who could we possibly get at this point? The only player worth trading for that was on the market was Deng and he's now gone.

 

We are really holding ourselves back by ruining the future. First, we're losing our 2014 pick and now we are trying to trade the only contract worth anything?

Cho said early on in the rebuild that at no point would we make any desperation moves, this goes against that and it reek's of a Higgins move to me.

I really believe that the "failed" recent draft picks has us in desperation mode right now.

ideally, we should let Gordon expire and throw a lot of that cap space at Lance Stephenson next year- the Pacers need to sign George to a MAX deal and probably wont have enough to keep both

 

but if they move Granger, it might help them.. do we go after Granger?

Trading Ben Gordon would be unwise IMO
