This is a revision of another trade in the Fanshots. New and improved, as it were: http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=yfladmc The Clips' Perspective: The Clippers have a logjam of big men. They also lack any good SF. This trade meets those shortcomings. Downside, the Clippers end up with Kaman and Noah at C and not too much at PF. That's a problem. However, espn says this: "News: Smith's(their current PF) 21 points led the Clippers in a blowout loss to Denver on Thursday evening. Spin: The point total is a season-high, and it's worth noting that Smith has four of his eight double-figure scoring games this season in the past five Clipper contests. Despite the return of Chris Kaman to the line-up, Smith received 28 minutes of playing time, another high for this, his first year in Los Angeles." They <em>may</em> be willing to give this guy some front time... possibly.. (Upon double checking, Noah is listed on the bulls website as F-C.. so maybe he could play power forward as well? I was under the impression he played C in Chicago, but maybe he plays PF with Miller at C? anyways.)
The Bulls' Perspective: They NEED another scoring threat. And a scoring big man, an offensive post player. Rose can't do it all alone. This gives them both an off guard to replace the scoring of Gordon and an all-around big man. The Suns Perspective: We need rebounding, shot blocking, and interior D. Lopez has definitely come a long ways in the last week, but if there was a move that may take us to the next level, would you do it? We have an excess of off guards and Barbosa just hasn't been the same. We know he can play in the half-court offense from last season, increasing his tradability. Camby is old. He is 35 and has a lot of miles. <strong>However</strong>, in the chance that this is what we would need, it's worth taking a look at. As anybody knows, Camby provides excellent interior D and rebounding. He just had a 25 rebound game, just so's you all know he still has it. And don't forget the Suns' medical team miracle makers.. Recognizing the possible futility of Hollinger's ratings, the Suns are left very well off with this trade. The other two are skewed from Griffin's injury: the Clippers probably wouldn't be as high from this trade (+3), and the Bulls' record certainly wouldn't suffer an 11-game win reduction. Griffin's PER would help that up.
Gambo and Ash http://icestream.bonnint.net:8000/az/audio/2010/01/01212010214826.mp3 They believe somebody will be traded by feb. 18th.. why not this? And seriously this time. If you think not, explain intelligently why not. If you think so, please do the same.
