back in the day they won, but he hasn't played on a relevant team for three or four years now
That was one of the things I really didn't understand about what Dumars was doing. He extended Prince and Stuckey when they obviously were headed into a full-on re-build.
He did have a great draft though imo. Drummond was a bit of luck, but English and Middleton also were good picks.
Kahn was at the Clippers vs Hornets game last night.
No one really makes sense from those teams that we may be targeting. I like Eric Bledsoe a lot, but that is another PG. Greivis Vasquez maybe makes sense if we traded Ridnour or Barea for him. Other wings in that game include Aminu (Corey BrewerII) Austin Rivers, Xavier Henry, and Jamal Crawford (who wont be traded).
maybe, though i don't think giving scouting reports on teams is in his job description.
But its more fun to speculate he was there to scout potential trade bait.
I'll play along:
Caron Butler + Eric Bledsoe = Derrick Williams + Luke Ridnour :confused:
oh my god, yes please. I am in love with Bledsoe's game, and Butler is just a little more icing on the cake.
Going along with that theme, Chauncey is soon to be back which should affect their guard rotation. They won't want to give Bledsoe and his PER of 23 away, but perhaps that would be sufficient payment.
Just a thought.
I'm thinking we don't see a trade go down until we get Rubio back. JJ or Ridnour are the most expendable and valuable trade chips next to Derrick, and draft picks...but they are not really that expendable until Rubio comes back.
I can't see us trading a former #2 overall pick for Butler (already have AK47, just signed Josh Howard, and Budinger once healthy) or Bledsoe (Rubio will be back soon and already have Ridnour and Barea). The only guy I would want from LAC is Crawford and I don't see them trading him. I see us trading for Gasol in a 3 team deal as Adelman is trying to assemble a team that resembles his old Kings teams (I believe).
Jason Williams/Ricky Rubio
Doug Christie/Howard or Shved (just cause I'm not sure about Roy)
Peja Stojakovic/AK47 or Budinger
Vlade Divacs/Pau Gasol
Just my opinion
