Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Well yes but Joe Johnson is not worth Marshon Brooks, Anthony Morrow and some scrubs. It all depends on how desperate the Hawks are to get rid of his contract. And if they accept that deal, well, there's your answer.

Ok so the Rockets are planning to acquire Eric Gordon. In their plan they would work out a sign-and-trade with New Orleans, Houston would send Kevin Martin and 2-3 prospects out of Patrick Patterson, Jeremy Lamb, Royce White and Terrence Jones.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Giving him that deal is still one of the dumbest things I've seen. It's not like everyone didn't already know it was a terribly overpaid contract

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Any team will be desperate to get rid of him.

And Rockets will be giving up K-mart, and 3 good prospects for EG who is often injury prone? Not a fan of that

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I don't think you realize how desperate Houston is for a star player. I say New Orleans should take that deal and run.

Xile have they Nets unveiled the new jerseys yet?

Nope, likely to in Sept.

That'd be a good trade for N.O.
They will follow the Thunder path with those picks

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I like it for Houston, tbh. Martin is expiring and will not go back to Houston, Patterson has done nothing in Houston and likely won't, with all of their PFs. If they get Gordon, they can spare Lamb, as well. They'd obviously want to keep White, but I can see them conceding if necessary. Same with Jones. They'd have to get some other piece from New Orleans, you'd think.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Wouldn't be surprised to see them get Carl Landry back if that was the deal. Of course this all hypothetical but I think Gordon/Landry for Martin/Lamb/Patterson/Jones would be fair.

The Rockets should not trade Royce White.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I'm sure they don't want to, but if it meant the difference of getting Gordon or not, I'd imagine they'd deal Royce.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

5 players just seems like a lot for Gordon.

Just saw on the news here in Houston that the Rockets are planning to go after Omer Asik, seems like a lot of teams want him. I doubt Chicago will be able to keep him.
