He sucks and needs to GTFO
Keep him, he is an important part of our team
TBH I am very frustrated with him. He showed drastic improvements last year, and he looked like he was finally going to be the franchise player. He totally regressed this year.
Keep in mind that if you get rid of Bargs, then DeRozan/Lowry will have a much harder time driving and getting to the basket, as the other team's best defensive big (i.e. Ibaka, Chandler,etc) is the one being forced to play outside the paint. You dont get that factor with Ed or Amir in his spot.
Im not against trading him but it must be at least a solid return. This team would be laughably bad offensively without him.
I wanna see him in a bigger sample size with Lowry/Jonas on the court with him.
GTFO hated this guy since he was drafted. Wet paper out there and plays like a slow *** SG...
Interesting Read on a trade idea from TBJ..
Now that the dust is starting to settle over the Lakers’ coaching crisis with their hiring of Mike D’Antoni, it behooves D’Antoni and Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak to examine their roster and determine how their personnel fits within D’Antoni’s spread pick-and-roll system. One of the keys to an effective pick-and-roll offense is having a big man who can step out and make three-pointers. Pau Gasol isn’t really that type of player, and Antawn Jamison appears to be essentially washed up. This means that Gasol could very well be available in a trade if the Lakers are able to acquire that shooting big man and bolster their weak bench.
You probably know what’s coming after the jump, but prepare to be outraged or delighted anyway by my proposal for a Lakers-Raptors trade that could benefit both teams.
My proposal: The Raptors trade Andrea Bargnani and Jose Calderon to the Lakers for Pau Gasol and Chris Duhon.
If Bargs doesn't improve in the next few games i would say "trade his ***" You can't have your main offensive player have 20 game stretches where he can't shoot over 38% from the field.
Like Bargs+ Calderon for Gasol+ Duhon
and then flipping Gasol to OKC for Martin+Sefolosha+ our pick back or something like along those lines. Start Sefolosha at SF and amnesty Kleiza.
If we are gonna suck this year I'd at least want our pick back.
I would definitely consider doing this trade.
