Looking back, do any of you guys wish the Suns had acquired Iguodala at the trade deadline?

It's the summer and there's still about 2 months before the regular season tips off. There's no basketball on TV, save for national television coverage of the USA team playing in the FIBA World Championship. The assortment of young talent on there is incredible. Andre Iguodala is one of those fine young players. Watching his performance in the USA exhibition games has made me see just how good he can be. If the Sixers weren't such a poor team, I think he'd be an All-Star.

Watching him play for Team USA has made me think back to the trade deadline in February when there were rumors of a possible trade between the Suns and the Sixers. Amar'e and J-Rich for Iggy, Dalembert, and maybe Speights/draft picks was the most likely package since Philly wouldn't part with Iguodala unless someone took Dalembert with him.

There were many pros and cons discussed about acquiring Iguodala. It was essentially swapping offense (STAT & J-Rich) for defense (Iggy & Dalembert). Seeing as how we advanced to the Western Conference Finals by sticking with Amar'e and Richardson, we seem to have made the right choice. But it doesn't hurt to fantasize and wonder what our team would've been like with Iggy and Dalembert.

We could've finished lower than a 5th seed. We could've lost to the Blazers or Spurs. We might've beaten the Lakers. We probably wouldn't have been able to acquire Childress, Turkoglu, or Warrick after pulling off that trade. Plus, who knows what the situation would've been with Barbosa if we had made this deal? There's a lot of possible ways the Suns' season could've turned out if we had acquired Iguodala, but I want all of you guys to give me YOUR opinion.

Did we make the right decision by not pushing to trade for them? If not, then why do you believe Iguodala and Dalembert would've made our team better than J-Rich and Amar'e?
