Do you think Dirk could end up on the trading block by midseason?

Do you think Dirk could end up on the trading block by midseason?

I don't know about Dirk, because Cuban loves him. But Josh Howard could definately be gone if they struggle, maybe they could buy out J-Kidd. It's pretty clear that their window is just about closed with their current group of players, especially with teams like the Hornets, Blazers, and Lakers looking like they'll be the new dominant teams in the west instead of the Spurs, Mavs and Suns.

Anywhoooo..If were talking about rebuilding id say Pistons or Nuggets

^^ the Mavs made their last ditch effort at winning a championship last year when they traded away their future in Devin Harris and their draft picks. I don't really think that they're gonna have to rebuild midseason, but if they struggle they definately should. I think most other teams that will struggle have already started their rebuilding processes.

As long as Tim Duncan is still there I don't see the Spurs rebuilding. They'll just continue to draft well at the bottom of the draft and continue to shuffle in veteran role players in search of a championship, until Duncan retires. But I could be wrong.

I really wish people would explain their answers in this thread. Seems like most people are just saying "the Nuggets" and "a bunch of other teams because I don't like them".


Why, exactly, do any of you have any plausible basis for thinking the Nuggets will "be rebuilding by midseason"? Are you specifically thinking that the FO will try to trade Iverson? It's possible, but I consider it fairly unlikely in the context of the Camby trade, since the value of getting his contract off the books in order to at long last get under the luxury tax will carry a much stronger appeal. If they trade him midseason, the only way it happens is in exchange for 2-3 players whose salary totals between $17-21 million, and only $10 million or less of that salary will be going to a player the Nuggets keep, while the rest must be expiring. Can anyone here put together a realistic mid-season trade that fits these requirements?

Why in the hell would anybody say the Lakers? Okay, maybe a minor mid-season trade, but "rebuild" when they're the strongest team in the WC? Get outta here...


I'm not saying that everyone's answers are bogus, but if you don't back them up and explain why you think those teams will make radical moves, then the answers are meaningless.

Mavericks- They made their last ditch effort to win a championship last year when they traded away their future for J-Kidd. If they struggle into January there is definitely reason for them to start rebuilding if it's evident that the Kidd experiment isn't working.

Suns- They, like the Mavs, are getting old and they made their last ditch effort to win a championship last year in making the Shaq trade. If they, like the Mavs, struggle into January they should consider trading their vets while they still have value.

Nuggets- When you trade a top 5 defensive player like Marcus Camby for essentially nothing, it's hard to think a team could be better after that. Also, for them to now start preaching defense after trading their best defensive player seems stupid. Maybe with a healthy Nene and K-Mart they can play better on the defensive end, but I don't see it happening. It will be hard to get expiring contracts for AI, but rebuilding doesn't necessarily mean just clearing out cap room. They could get a couple good young players and some draft picks for him

Pistons- They're definitely starting to show they're age, and who knows how they'll play with a new coach. They have some of their future in place with Maxiell, Amir Johnson, and Stuckey. Trading Billups and Sheed would definitely make room for them. In the new and improved east they could slide back into the pack, and if they do Joe D might not accept that, and he'll start trading his valuable commodities while he still can.


Obviously the teams that I have listed are still very talented, and I don't think that any of them will struggle. I just see these teams as the most likely to rebuild, should they struggle. Obviously if a team like the Blazers or Hornets somehow managed to struggle, they're not going to rebuild because they already been down that road. The teams that I have listed have been contending for awhile now, and it happens to every team that it's just clear that they aren't going to go any further with what they have, so it's time to rebuild.

^ Elaborate?
Pistons: Because 3 of their big 4 are aging and they havent been so succesfull recently if they are underperforming it will be time for a rebuild.

Cavaliers:Because one Lebron even as good as he is does not make up for a fading Wallace a FADED scerbiak an againg and health concerned Ilgauskas and a No d Point guard like williams, Im sorry for them because i LIKE the Team but they are going nowhere, Trying to package Wallys expiring in february for some help for Lebron is their last chance to keep him,Anyway trading him is a rebuilding itself ;)

Hawks:Their Owner is cheap, they are not entering the playoffs this year, Didnt care about signing Childress, Smith wanted out.....

Suns:Nash + Shaq + Grant Hill = More than 100 Years..... this year for them is Make it or break it, so if they are not doing well and having on account nash and Shaq have big contracts that expires in the holy grandious 2010 years expect a lot of offers for them to rebuild.

Spurs: GInobilini is done because of injuries, Bowen is too old, Finley is too Old, they should have already started.

Mavs:Dirk wants to win, They are not happy with Howard Kidd is Done and has a good big expiring contract, Dirk is on his late prime so he needs to win NOW, so if they are not doing it that well he may ASK out , if that happens rebuiliding will be server, either if it is Trading Dirk or Granting he stays by buying more help using Kidd contract as bait.

Rockets: No im not Crazy, is it crazy to think Tmacs back can finally give out for good? is it crazy to think Ming can have another injury plagued year, is it crazy to think....o god how strange that Artest May go Nuts and do something stupid for the 10000000th Time? Is it stupid to think that if MORE than ONE of this things happens at a time they will be having a BAD season after 4 straight bad seasons with not a single second round to show up for merit? Its not Probable, but they MAY explode by february.

Nuggets: Iverson has a nice expiring Contract im counting on them to trade him for some Young player, particulary a Point guard to rebuild around Melo , basically because this core has already FAILED the past couple of years and trading Camby for cap space should be a hint that they are already rebuilding, Im even inclined to think that Melo may have his price too.

This post got me thinking, what if the Nuggets traded AI to Portland for Lafrentz, Channing Frye, and Steve Blake...along with a couple of 1st round draft picks

The Nuggets get a decent true point guard, a good young big man (expiring) and raef lafrentz's expiring contract. THis would also allow Mello to be the main guy again, and they could move on from there with how they want to build around Mello.

The Blazers would then be able to throw out a starting lineup of:

PG-Allen Iverson
SG-Brandon Roy
SF-Martell Webster
PF-Lamrcus Aldridge
C-Greg Oden

That's a nasty team right there....

Obviously most Nuggets fans would be angry as hell if this happened, but it's not new for great players get traded for essentially nothing. I'm sure the Nuggets could get much more out of a deal for AI than what I mentioned above....but I don't think that a deal like this would be out of the realm of possibility.

Yes, because 6 straight ECF appearances isn't being successful. :rolleyes:

Also, The Cavs wouldn't even think about rebuilding as long as Lebron is still in Cleveland. They know there window with Lebron is closing, and there going to do everything in there power to try and win an NBA Championship.

How is the Hawks owner cheap? You know he's the same guy who signed Joe Johnson to a MAX contract a few offseasons ago, and he also traded for Mike Bibby at the trading deadline last year. As far as I can see, that organization is committed to winning.

The Suns should be rebuilding, but I don't see it happening. If Nash and Shaq can finally start to click, they still may have an outside chance at winning the West.

How can you say the Spurs are done? As long as Duncan is still on the roster, they'll be contending for championships.

Mark Cuban is as committed to winning as anybody in the NBA. Trading for Kidd is proof of that. Sure, that trade might not look as sexy then as it does now, but they still have a VERY talented roster. Don't forget, they won 67 games just 2 seasons ago.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only person off of the Rockets bandwagon. I don't see them exploding like you do, but I do see them having a "lower then expectations" type season. They have a very talented roster, but your right, there is just to many question marks. Can McGrady stay healthy? Will Yao be healthy when the playoffs role around? (We all know he won't be healthy the entire season, but if he's healthy in the playoffs, the Rockets may be dangerous. Depending if T - Mac is also healthy at that time..) Can Artest stay on the down low the entire season? Just to many questions..

The Nuggets organization is clueless right now. They traded Camby to free up cap space, then, they go out and trade for Jamal Tinsley. If they fall out of contention early, it wouldn't surprise me if they decide to trade AI around the trade deadline.

The Blazers aren't thinking about winning a championship this season, so trading for a star PG wouldn't make much sense. They drafted Jared Bayless in the first round this year, and they also have Rudy Fernandez coming from Spain, and he was regarded as a lottery pick also. Both of them are Point Guards, and they could be the answers for them at that position.

DenButsu

Do you think Billups would come without giving up AI? JR Smith? Is he worth more in value than either of those two? I think not. What would you propose?

Detroit pitched Billups and Prince for Melo (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=3455530). Denver rejected that, and counter offered AI for the same package. The only deal I'd do with Detroit for AI would have to involve Sheed (and his expiring) so we get a good chunk of AI's contract off the books. AI for Chauncey and Sheed works financially (http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=63~883~366&teams=7~7~8&te=&cash=), but no way the Pistons do that.

And that's the big, giant, OBVIOUS elephant in the room that everybody in this thread for some reason is totally oblivious to. Open your eyes, people: It will be almost impossible for Denver to trade Iverson mid-season on terms that the Nuggets would actually accept.

Everyone is making this snap judgment about the Nuggets without thinking things through logically, based on the (false) impression that the Camby salary dump was the first step in blowing up the team, the (equally false) perception that things are going horribly wrong in the Pepsi Center, and (I guess) just because PSD NBA fans love hating on the Nuggets. Seriously.

But check it out. In my opinion, these are the minimum terms that the Denver Nuggets front office would accept in a trade for Allen Iverson:

1. After this season ends, the net result is that the Nuggets end up retaining no more than $10 million of AI's contract value. Or in other words, approximately half of the salary in the trade absolutely must be in the form of expiring contracts.

2. The one, or possibly two players received by Denver that they end up keeping beyond the 2008-09 season must be of a sufficiently high quality to make letting go of AI worthwhile in the short term, and the package almost definitely must include a point guard who has a legitimate chance at being Denver's man of the future, or at least of the next few seasons.


So from now on in this thread, I'm making a unilateral declaration that anybody who answers simply "nuggets" without providing a concrete example of an Iverson trade that meets the above requirements should not be taken seriously.
:p

Seriously. (And the lame, tired "they gave away their best defensive player for nothing" cliche is not only wrong, it has absolutely no bearing on whether Denver would "rebuild mid-season" or not).

I think a bunch of teams will make teams for rebuilding purposes, trying to make a run at the championship, or trying to unload players at logjamed positions.

Nuggets: Ai does have that expiring contract, and i think a lot of teams would like to maybe use AI for the second half of the season, if they lose him, they can always head to free agency. I think that the Jazz can make a play.

Rockets: Most likely will want to tweak it up before heading into the playoffs (finally out of the first round). They have alot of guards and could use some frontcourt athelticism. Also, let's face it. How long do you think Rafear will last as the rockets pg? If you're answer not past februrary you are right. Rockets need a nice pg who can really run the show in texas.

Phoenix. Shaq says he's done in two years. Nash would have to resign when he is done and that seems unlikely, if he wanta a ring. Whats to stop him from a team that needs a show runner in a couple years (rockets, orlando, maybe denver, cleavland after the mo williams experiment fails, if portalnd lands a decent wing scorer, they're also an option) Also, D'antoni would love to have his guys diaw and barbosa in NY. I think diaw will get over there, but barbosa maybe too pricey. How old is grant hill again? Looks like they'll be rebuilding around a amare and freinds.

Cavs: They're going to feel like they're in position to make a run at the title. which means they're going to need to find a decent sg and someone who can run an offense. I don't think Mo will be traded that soon though. Unless the nuggets don't get tinsley and decided that mo will looks better than an expiring AI.

Hornets: My bet is that they try to add some athelticism and some offesne at the 2. Posey was a nice pickup. But i think he is better suited to come of the bench for situational purposes or whenever the 2 or 3 gets in foul trouble. mabe they can relieve the bulls of one of thier many guards.

Sixers: will need some 3 point shooting if they plan on going past the second round in the east.

Pistons: We all expect them to make a big move. Their managment hasn't done anything, but they have so many younger players who have yet to make thier mark on the NBA. Players like stuckey, amir johnson, maxiel, affalo. These players have be tested a bit more before they can make a move. But if that does happpen this season, sheed, billups, or prince or hamilton could be on the move if the right deal was availble. Note that pistons invision a hybrid backcourt of billups and stuckey, so that might make rip the most tradable (definitely would be good for cavs, hornets, jazz, toronto)

Clippers need to plug some holes at the guard positons as well (backup pg, starting sg) Once again, the bulls coule be in play.

Wizards: Sad that Jamison went down. If the big 3 stay healthy, they believe they can win games (they did beat up boston last year). But this trio might be broken up because of their success rate. If Nick young emerges. Stevenson and jamison could be sent for a front court post player. Or at least a quality center.

Jazz: Need a starting 2 who can score. outside touch helps (a guy like ray allen would be perfect in that system) they also have to worry about what offers boozer will get next sesaon (cause you know miami is Still watching)

Williams will play better defense on a team like Cleveland because it's emphesized!!! Wallace is fading but by the time he does fade completely J.J. Hickson will be there to replace him and what better player could J.J. learn from then Wallace? Wally WILL be gone one way or another but we have young talented players at his position in Delonte West, Sasha Pavlovic, Terrance Kinsey, PLUS whoever we decide to draft next year. Illgauskas hasn't been injury prone in the last three years, lol. Yeah he's up there in age but we have Anderson Verajao another young player behind him. The ONLY old players we have is Illgauskas, Wallace, and Wally (whose contract expires this year) The rest of the team is fairly young. How do YOU know if it's their last chance to keep him? THEY ARE ONE OF THE ELITE TEAMS OF THE EAST. lmao. Do your homework little one do your homework.

Hawks:Their Owner is cheap, they are not entering the playoffs this year, Didnt care about signing Childress, Smith wanted out.....

Suns:Nash + Shaq + Grant Hill = More than 100 Years..... this year for them is Make it or break it, so if they are not doing well and having on account nash and Shaq have big contracts that expires in the holy grandious 2010 years expect a lot of offers for them to rebuild.

Spurs: GInobilini is done because of injuries, Bowen is too old, Finley is too Old, they should have already started.

Mavs:Dirk wants to win, They are not happy with Howard Kidd is Done and has a good big expiring contract, Dirk is on his late prime so he needs to win NOW, so if they are not doing it that well he may ASK out , if that happens rebuiliding will be server, either if it is Trading Dirk or Granting he stays by buying more help using Kidd contract as bait.

Rockets: No im not Crazy, is it crazy to think Tmacs back can finally give out for good? is it crazy to think Ming can have another injury plagued year, is it crazy to think....o god how strange that Artest May go Nuts and do something stupid for the 10000000th Time? Is it stupid to think that if MORE than ONE of this things happens at a time they will be having a BAD season after 4 straight bad seasons with not a single second round to show up for merit? Its not Probable, but they MAY explode by february.

You ARE crazy to think that a team who has championship potential is gonna rebuild. The Rockets are AT LEAST two years away from possibly rebuilding. Why should they think about rebuilding after they JUST traded for Ron Artest????? That's a BIG laugher

Nuggets: Iverson has a nice expiring Contract im counting on them to trade him for some Young player, particulary a Point guard to rebuild around Melo , basically because this core has already FAILED the past couple of years and trading Camby for cap space should be a hint that they are already rebuilding, Im even inclined to think that Melo may have his price too.

Is that enough elaboration?

Again, the Rockets and Cavaliers are championship caliber teams so it makes no sense for either one of them to rebuild. ESSPECIALLY Cleveland who seems to get younger and younger.
