Pistons get- Marcin Gortat, Jared Dudley, $$$?
Suns get- #9
Pistons line up- Knight, Stuckey, Prince or Dudley 6th man, move Monroe to the 4 and Gortat at 5
Suns rebuild- depending on who portland selects, we can get Damian Lillard or maybe Drummond, and at #13 we get a SG
Why move Gortat he is a legit center and those are hard to find
With Nash probably leaving, they probably will rebuild. Plus Gortat is 28 i think. Suns want to get younger, and Pistons can move Monroe to the 4 which they want to.
NO. Marcin Gortat is turning into one of the best C's in the league. Plus if they trade him, they're gonna need to find another C and no one at #9 IMO will be near as good as Gortat and Robin Lopez sure won't cut it
Drummond has the potential to be tho, hes an excellent athlete at 6' 11 and like 270 lbs, he can defend, block shots and rebound, offense will come later. if nash leaves, how good would gortat be? like i said phoenix is likely to be rebuilding
There's actually nothing in that roster, except these guys, an underpaid center(leading scorer...LOL) who does the job, and JYD the heart and soul of that locker room, be kind and smarter than blanks...please.
28 YO is old....OK.
When you rebuild, you don't get rid of a legit 7 foot center in his prime. You don't just get rid of talent for the sake of tanking. Plus, Dudley is a nice player. The 9th pick isn't remotely close to being that valuable.
And it isn't probable that Drummond will ever be better than Gortat. He has the potential to be better, but it certainly won't be in the next couple of years. I think you undervalue Gortat, who may be a top 10 center in the league.
stop with your god-awful trades
We have no talent! Just Nash who makes anyone and everyone better! They already talked about having gortat as trade bait if Nash leaves to start fresh. you guys are looking at it a different way. its hard to get top talent at 13. look at okc, durant harden and westbrook. all draft. We need better talent and athletes
Overall, the mood in the gym was optimistic. The Clippers, across the roster, seem to believe they have real a chance to do something special this season.
