Hello there. According to past discussions most sun fans would be willing to trade
Gortat for #10 and Freeland
As some of you may know the blazers are very short on impact players (as seen by our lowest bench production in nba history) and we need as much talent as we can get. Unfortunately our cap situation only allows as to grab one good or two average players. Therefore I'd like to purpose this trade:
Gortat, #5 for #10, Matthews, Leonard, #40
We get a stopgap center for a couple of years that we really need
We get the #5 with with we can draft Oladipo ( a cheaper version of Matthews without the good 3 point stroke)
Pheonix gets the #10 with which then can draft Cody Zeller or any other project center that should be starting material in 2-3 years
Phoenix gets Matthews who is a more seasoned version of Oladipo with a much better three point stroke and great leadership abilities for a young team
Pheonix gets Leonard. Another young center with potential to be a starter in 2-3 years
Pheonix also gets #40
What do you think? Would you do this trade? Would you change this trade a bit?
let me know!
