In an earlier post, JC79 suggests trading Lopez for Eric Bledsoe. Usually these rosterbation movements produce silly results, or at the very least headaches. This one is actually a gem...
Lopez is a backup C that some [outside of PHX] believe has potential and could someday possibly be a serviceable center in this league. Yes, he is inconsistent, but has some value for center starved teams.
Bledsoe has been an underutilized player due to having other players in front of him making a lot of money [Baron Davis, Mo Williams, Chris Paul]. He seems to be a player that has some ability. While the jury is still out on him, the thought of trading our inconsistent backup center [which with the emergence of Morris means we don't really need him] for an inconsistent backup point guard [on a cheap rookie deal] might be a great way to get a solid backup PG for the future. Who knows, he may turn out to be another KJ like acquisition, since we knew little about KJ when we traded for him.
Heck, maybe we can trade Hak for Gomes as part of this deal. Gets $16.75M of Haks deal off our plate for basically a similar player in Gomes.
