The only way you get rid of Moz or Deng is with a sweetener.  Deng can still play, Im down on Mozgov after the first 25 games.  Could be a solid backup role somewhere but no way he's an impact guy on a rebuilding team.

 

Possibly... we can sweeten it. 

 

Re: Deng, if we move Moz and keep Deng, Im good... obviously I would love to move them both but beggars cant be choosers. 

 

Re: Monroe, I think its a deal that can pick up steam, Moz would be a solid back up for MIL, hell maybe even a starter, Monroe and MIL are simply on different paths... and under the new upcoming CBA according to several here Moz will be relatively considered a decent contract at that point.

I don't think Bucks take Moz after giving that contract to Plumlee. They have their own version of Moz in Plumlee

Plumlee needs a back up, its technically a swap as Monroe is currently the backup... not saying MIL would do it but I would definitely explore it.

The Bucks have a lot of future salary tied up with their current players.  No way they take Moz and his contract instead of sticking with Monroe and getting some cap relief when he opts out.

There's no reason to rush trading Mozgov or Deng. For what purpose? Clearing cap space? for who?

 

Its better to wait for a season or two and try to trade them by then. At least by then we're not gonna give up in trades as much.

I dont know about that.  I defended the signings earlier in the year but those 2 have been bad.  If somebody is willing to take 1 of them off our hands that would be great.  The Kings could be a possible destination with Rudy Gay done.  I'd give up Lou and Deng for Gay and whatever the hell they wanna send to get him off the books.

I never liked the Mozgov signing but I trusted you when you said he'd be good for the team since I havent watched many games of the Cavs or when he was in Denver.

 

Sure Im down for trading both. I just dont see a feasible trade. Kings wont take on Mozgov.Lou is not worth accommodating Mozgov's contract imo.

You wait for a season or two and their value decreases even further.  If you do deal, now is the time to dump one of the albatrosses, Deng or Mozgov (preferably Mozgov).

Just pop him in the grill and knock him down once every quarter. But seriously, I agree. I was cool with signing in the beginning but that ship has sailed quickly.

Mosgov and Deng have done enough.
The kids are the core.
It's about them.
Clarkson has facilitated more lately.
Zubac looks good.
Nance too when HEALTHY.

need everyone above healthy including Tarik.

Im not sure the kids are the problem.

 

I believe the problem is those we have placed around them.

 

The balance of talent simply isn't there.

I agree surprised? Moz has not lived up to expectations goodcas a back up, this is going to be an interesting week teamscthink we're desperate to trade are mistaken, if nothing happens it's better than a bad deal. But was hoping for Louvfir picks and maybe Moz with Clarkson for an expiring. About 25 games to go need to lose 21 of em, sorry just truth
