View Full Version : Trading your star player, which team made out the best?

Denver Nuggets: Traded Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups, Shelden Williams, Anthony Carter and Renaldo Balkman to the New York Knicks for Wilson Chandler, Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov and the Knicks 2014 1st round draft pick

New Orleans Hornets: Traded Chris Paul and 2 future 2nd round picks to the Los Angeles Clippers for Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu and Minnesota Timberwolves unprotected 1st round pick this upcoming year.

Utah Jazz: Traded Deron Williams to New Jersey Nets for Devin Harris, Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and next years Nets 1st round pick

Which team got the most in return for their star player?

Currently, Utah still looks like it to me. If NJ loses Williams, then next years first adds insult to injury.
The Hornets could be next in line if their 2 first rounders this year end up high in the draft.
Denver got young players but may not have them all when Chandler is ready to come back. If so, then they are up there too.

I have to say NOH, they got a young stud all star in Gordon who as of now is the best player any of these teams received, a solid wingman with potential in Aminu, a solid center in Kaman, and most likely a lottery pick in what will be one of the more stacked drafts in recent memory.

UTAH got potential but aside from Harris no proven players.

DEN did very well considering the circumstances, but by next year they could be left with really only Gallo & Mozzy out of that trade and the 2014 pick figures to be a very late first.

New Orleans.

and then there are Toronto and Cleveland who got nothing!

Utah Jazz for now

Hornets a close second with the potential to be a better package than the Jazz

Denver Nuggets a distant 3rd

Imagine what Cleveland could have got for LeBron

Utah dont have NJ picks, they have GS pick for next year which they got via NJ, its Lottery protected I believe Not sure.

Still Utah Seems like winners here, Deven Derrick, and the other dude that a good future.
NJ should have wait IMO they give away alot of talent.

But I still like their chance better for D12.

1. Jazz
2. Nuggets
3. Hornets

Jazz... especially if that's a one year rental.

and then there are Toronto and Cleveland who got nothing!

Whose fault is that?

ummmm, have we seen the nuggets since they traded melo? they are now 19-7 in the post melo era. they are the only team so far that has proven to be better than before the trade. the rubbish about the Jazz having lottery picks and the nuggs role players is bull. the nuggs got established players that contributed immediately. the nuggs rebuilt their whole team and got better instantly and rebuilt the team. they got bigger, younger, faster and much more flexible. they have cap room, a huge trade exception and perhaps more young assets going into the trade deadline than anyone else. how can you argue against that?

so people know also andre miller, gallo, hamilton, mozgov, koufus and chandler are currently the players the nuggets have that they got from that deal. that's 6 players in the nba right now. chandler is a rfa when he gets back and theres now way the nuggs won't match an offer. at the least they will sign and trade him for more assets.

Love Utah here. Two potential all-stars up front, another good pick, and a steady NBA PG in Harris, who isn't exactly over the hill.
