Not much legitimacy here, but at least an interesting rumor to think and talk about. What's yall take?



"There is plenty of trade speculation surrounding the Bobcats' future plan, but Sidery Sports chief writer Evan Sidery provided an intriguing trade scenario involving the Bobcats, the Houston Rockets and the Philadelphia 76ers.

In the proposed trade, the Bobcats would receive point guard Jeremy Lin, forward Donatas Motiejūnas and small forward Evan Turner. The Sixers, on the other hand, will get Ben Gordon's expiring contract, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Omer Asik, whom Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie really wants to acquire."

Well we certainly get the short straw on that one. Looks great for Houston and Philly though.

1) Sounds horrible. Turner is a facade.

2) How often have any of these obscurely rumored trades ever happened between two teams, let alone three?

If we drafted a 19 year old kid at the #2 spot only to give up on him one year later I'm going to lose my poo

No sir, I don't like it. I don't want to lose MKG unless it's just a no-brainer.

Since Evan Turner has a year left...let's say he doesn't re-sign here. Which unless we threw above market value towards him he wouldn't more than likely.

 

We get rid of one of the most valuable expiring contracts in the league AND Kidd-Gilchrist for a year of an overpaid and overrated Jeremy Lin? All the while, Houston makes out like bandits getting Hawes and Thad Young? Not only no...Hell no.

Yeah, matter of fact, that sounds like a vintage Rod Higgins trade.
