10 million for Calderon's contract as opposed to Barbosa (who's arguably the better player, but not as pure as a true PG) for 8 million or more less.

why is everyone hung up over the fact that Bosa isnt a true PG?(not you^) the 2nd unit doesnt need a true PG, the 2nd unit needs scoring.......... ..

Kobe and Randle led Lakers lead the team to a 32-50 record. the Lakers select Myles Turner with the 5th pick.

^ Thanks for saying not me, and yes, you're absolutely right on the money about that. Our bench needs scoring, play-making, and shot-creators more than anything. Barbosa definitely brings that to the table instantly and would be an invaluable weapon off the bench. I prefer him over Calderon for a multitude of reasons both financially and as overall helping this team and the bench be better/more dangerous.

Bosa would also make Meeks more effective in the 2nd unit(drive n kick). right now who in the 2nd unit is going to drive and get Meeks open looks? this is why i want CDR with the 2nd unit, and Meeks with nashty

That Calderon trade won't work. Jose makes around $10.6 million, and we'd have to send more than just Blake (or Duhon) and minimum contracts to get him.

Toronto won't do it, anyway, even if we trade both Blake and Duhon (with Morris, or Goude, or DJO), because Calderon comes off the books after this season...and both Blake and Duhon will cost them another $8 million next year. No reason for it...they would much rather pay one player $10.6 million this season, lose him in the offseason (expiring), then hand it all over to Kyle Lowry...than to have Blake and Duhon for nearly $16 million over the next two seasons, stinking it up OR barely playing (because at that point, Lowry will be getting all of the minutes at the point).

Duhon's contract is not completely guaranteed for next year.

That's true, but not really the point. Go ahead and chop off the $2.5 million that Toronto would be able to get out of if they waive him next summer...you're still looking at another $3-4 million or so for a pack of players that won't get much playing time behind Lowry. With Calderon, at least they have someone who is familiar with Bargnani and most of the roster, and he has been a starter for quite some time now.

Blake and/or Duhon will be moved by the trade deadline or I ban myself for 2 weeks.


As soon as the Dwight trade went down, both went on the block...at least, Duhon was being shopped...as soon as the trade was agreed upon.


MWP is a good player. He brings a lot to the table. But if we can get a younger, more athletic wing, we will...someone with a little more bounce in his step and the ability to finish on the break. A long defender who can spot up and hit the outside J. AI2 would have been perfect. Thabo. Brandon Rush. Paul George (no chance). Luol Deng (see Paul George)...


None of this is news though...

yeah one of them is gone, probably blake. im all for that as long as its not just a salary dump and we're left with du-nothing and morris as backups. i dont think they would do that though as it wouldnt be smart at all. if only we had 3 of steve nash

i would hate to see mwp go, he's not the best perimeter defender now but he is smart(as a defender) and has the hands and strength of a grizzly bear. gordon hayward will artest to that lol.

as far as ron, i wouldnt want to upset chemistry though long term it makes sense. sure there are guys id take over him but thats not happening. hopefully he will shoot better when he is open so nobody will have much to gripe about
Abdul-Jabbar told the San Francisco Chronicle last month he met Howard only once and that Howard expressed an interest in learning from the former Lakers captain but he never again reached out to Abdul-Jabbar.

‘He’s charming, he’s charismatic, very nice young man,’ Abdul-Jabbar said. ‘Maturity-wise, he doesn’t get it.’

gordan hayward also blew by Metta on the dribble a couple times.. Mettas strength makes him an above average defender, but his lack of foot speed also puts him in that category,restricting him from being a GREAT defender..
