Well that certainly gets us "youth" doesn't it...
Let's see the bright side if there is any with that trade let's look...
Marcus Thorton or Darius Morris at starting 2(if Kobe is playing the 3)
Aaron Brooks bench point guard over Duhon or Morris
Chuck Hayes, I don't know much about him
Thomas Robinson. 21 year old Power Forward. Energy guy I gather. Not for stretching the floor. No worse than Derrick Williams would be.
So let's see. It certainly improves the backup point guard spot, as well as the starting 2 spot and Thorton can be moved to the 3 at times as well and is an upgrade over Ebanks at that position as well.
So basically the only upgrades would be at the 2/3 starting position which is where Thorton would undoubtedly be and I'm guessing Hill starts
So our lineup would be
Our bench would be
With the interchanging lineups and such
Eh.... its ok... just ok. Though getting Thorton and Brooks would surtainly bolster some of the offensive weapons in our starting lineup and the scoring from our bench 1.
But that's about it. We'd miss a bit of depth at bench center, unless Hill/Howard's minutes are increased.
