One way to motivate Kieff is to get his brother on this team, this will also motivate Marcus to get better alongside his brother. If we do a trade: BEST TRADE FOR US, DECENT FOR ROCKETS: Phx gets Marcus Morris, Patterson, and Flynn while Houston gets Lopez, Brown, and either Telly or Price and maybe a future second rounder.
Why would the Rockets do it? The Rockets would do this trade to get a good backup center for Dalembert because for some reason they don't wanna keep Hill. They would get a better contract at the PG, they would get a score minded sg to back K Mart bc Lee is not as score first minded as Brown. I have also heard that Patterson is on the trading block for Houston.
Why we should do it, to get Marcus for the reason I said above. We should try Flynn out because he would be great in Gentry's offensive system as he is an athletic, quick, scorer who could have a new beginning with us. Patterson would be the best part, he is a great PF who could help us alot because he can shoot midrange, he can rebound, play defense, and score in the post. If Houston does this trade, that would be amazing.
Re-sign Nash. Do I really need to give a description?
Sign Oden. The Blazers are signing Pryzabilla and need to shed a contract. One of those contracts could easily be Oden. Oden was a first round pick who excelled in the few games he played as an excellent shot blocker and defender and he was not bad on offense. He dominated even playing about 20 minutes a game. He would be the best choice for the Blazers, as they don't want him to be a Brandon Roy, a great player who retired because of knee problems. They should give Oden up so they could move on from him, and he is inactive and will probably get injured again without the right care. We have one of the best athletic trainers and staffs in the league. We have a 38 yr old PG who is still a top (I think three but some may not agree) point guard, we have a 39 yr old SF whose career was that to be over but he is locking down Durant and Lebron. We revived Redd, he thought his career was over but he has a new beginning with the Suns. Oden could be an amazing backup for Gortat, and could eventually start and we could move Gortat to the 4 (I heard he would be fine with doing that) and we could have to best frontcourt in the league.
If we resign Aaron Brooks and the Rockets deal works out, get a good big man or PG in the draft.
The most iffy thing here is the Rockets trade, but if we can do that, we could easily be a great contender next year.
Lineup IF Hill stays and we resign Brooks:
SG: FA or Draft/Redd
We would have to get rid of some players and amnesty Chill, and do something with Warrick...
Lineup IF Hill does NOT stay and we resign Brooks:
SG: FA or Draft/Redd
Our only difference would be without hill. If we don't resign Brooks, then we should get a good PG in the Draft, and a good SG in the FA.
I know the Rockets trade will be difficult to make, but if it happened, it would be a decent trade for each team. Anyone have any other trades that would make us contend by next year and would possibly get us Marcus Morris?
What are your plans?
