yes id say no to barea being the best offensive player wed get back in a deal for pau. we need a marcus thorton to lead the bench, a jordan crawford, a wilson chandler, a michael beasley,, a jr smith, a lou williams, a danny granger .... one of these players plus a jj barea,,we cant trade for a group of wings who are basically as talented offesnively as MWP(williams and ariza) williams and ariza only get to the hole once MAYBE twice a game, and dont have consistent Js,theyre so inconsitent on offense, our 2nd unit needs offense, it needs a player or two who can create offense.
id much rather add calderon and klaza to the bench(bargs in the first unit). calderon might just be a top 15 pg, he can shoot,create off the dribble for himself or others, hes a complete offesnive player,,we need bench players like him. and klaza is also slightly better offensively than ariza and williams.
I completely disagree with you 100%
I think a bench unit of
Would be absolutely amazing when paired with our starting lineup.
We'd also have the leftover three point shooting guards if we wanted to run small with Blake and Duhon as well. We'd be adding athleticism to our 4 spot with a guy that we can work with, and Ariza is back on the team asked to be a bench player rather than a starter and Jordan Hill getting his position for 5s as well as the scorer Barea can be. OFF OUR BENCH. As well as Meeks.
I'm sorry but I think getting that bench lineup for Gasol is GREAT!
Metta World Peace
I'm sorry but I think getting that bench unit at the expense of Gasol would be a very good deal on our part. Especially with Ariza being a bulldog on defense with our bench unit and the athleticism of Williams. Not to mention all of the players on our bench could/would benefit from D'antoni's system.
Would deepen our bench and fill in our holes therein. Ariza can be a scorer if he's asked to be and we aren't asking him to be a starter we're asking him to be a scorer on the bench which is putting less responsibility on him. Williams in general would be a great addition of some young TALENT that's actually talent. As well as rebounding.
I honestly think that's probably the best deal we should get for our bench. As the 3,4,5 of Ariza, Williams and Hill would help our bench defense tremendously and athleticism wise.
And Meeks being what he is and Barea with his ability to score, get to the lane and facilitate would be GREAT for our team.
barea in D'antoni's system would already do damage, add in a 3 point shooter like Meeks and our bench becomes very scary, add Ariza's defense WIlliams athleticism and Hill's hustle and we have a bench squad that not only can stretch leads but would run a much faster pace than our starters even would, and in D'antoni's world THAT would be perfect!
Trade would look like this
But we'd also be able to unload Ebanks too but TM won't let me do that yet.
