Go Away! I'm baitin'

 Havent posted here in a loooong time, but I have to offer my two cents. TRADE NASH, TRADE HILL. It's insanity to keep these guys around, since we have no chance of doing anything even if we make the playoffs.

To become a contender a team needs a talented core that is surrounded with role players. When making a trade it must be in the front office's minds that they need to slowly over time build a core. We have the role players already, and will have a number of them under contract for the next few years.

Trade Nash to a team that is a Steve Nash away from being a contender. There's 3 teams that I can think of that fit this bill. Memphis, Golden State, and New York. Golden State would have to be willing to part with Curry, and I'm not sure they would. And the only reason to trade him to New York would be to give New York title hopes. You wouldn't be getting squat back.

Why it should be Memphis

OJ Mayo hasn't been given much of a chance to be the man in Memphis, but everything I've seen from the guy shows me he has some mad skills. This would be the beginning of the core. You would have a very formidable backcourt with Dragic and Mayo, that in a few years will be one of the best in the league.

For Memphis this move would likely vault them into the upper half of the Western Conference. Nash at the point with Rudy Gay as his swing man, and Gasol and Randolph down low? That's a sick squad.

Hill To New York

Grant Hill to New York would make more sense then Nash to New York. They are looking to rid themselves of Anthony Randolph, and I have no idea why. The kid has talent and could very well be another piece of the team's future core. Take a look

Warriors 2008-09 Highlights: Anthony Randolph (via GoldenStateWarriors)


 

He's got skills and was coveted by Warriors fans when he was there. But for whatever reason people end up in D'Antonie's dog house.

Of course, for the foreseeable future the Suns would be a lottery team, as the player's gain talent and become better. During this time we would lose some unwanted salary's, but we would also gain some players through the draft. Then maybe we can attract some free agents, because of our potential, much like we did with Nash in 04.
