  • On this date, is it safe to say that no trade is needed this season?

    -With the 2 biggest question marks of this season' start, Ross and Patterson, playing some pretty good games in the last weeks

    -With both of our injured starters, JV and JYD2.0, back at it and playing pretty well

    -With Scola, Joseph and Biyombo exceeding the expectations

    -With Kyle and DeMar playing their best basketball ever

    -With the Double U's

    Is it safe to say, now, that no trade is really needed this season?

    I think masai may look to assess the landscape based on the health of our roster at that time

      A trade was never "needed." Nothing has changed - if a trade crops up that makes sense long term, Ujiri will make the trade. If not, he won't.

        In a league that's centered around the 3 point shot... we rank in the bottom half of the league in made 3's. Not bottom of the barrell low but its below the halfway point at 18. Not good enough if you want to make some waves in the playoffs.
        So looking at where our 3's come from ... Ross.. Paterson... Carroll... Lowry .and maybe Scola and factor in what else those 5 guys bring to the party and how easily those other skills they bring could be replaced you might land on the conclusion that high on the shopping list is a 4 who can make 3's and play average defense. While not bad defenders both Scola and Paterson could be considered average. SOme might say they are not even average.

        So if a trade proposal comes along that allows for the addition of a stretch 4 that makes the 3 at a higher percentage than what we have been witness to this year and can be done without subtracting one of the starters and TRoss then I think that is something that would be very thoughtfully considered. Or MU stays the course with Paterson and PPat returns to form from the arc on a nightly basis.

        Who would fit the bill on teams that may be sellers come Feb if a trade is considered to improve current production from 3 if Ppat doesn't come around ?

        Mirza Teletovic from the rebuilding Suns
        Trevor Ariza from the possibly rebuilding Rockets
        Robert Covington from the perenially rebuilding Sixers
        Omri Casspi from the always goofy Kings

        And with the 4th overall pick the Toronto Raptors select..... Scottie Barnes.

            Out of those guys, you go with Casspi and don't even blink.

              Casspi is playing amazing this season I dont see why the Kings would trade him.

              I think Teletovic would be someone who we could actually trade for

                Masai has made it clear that he doesn't plan on keeping the 4 1st round picks we have over the next 2 years. So one could assume that if/when he does go for a player it'll be a significant one.

                Might not be this trade deadline but quite possibly could be depending on how he feels about the teams chances.

                  I think something needs to be done, we have enough youth and too many picks coming in that it doesn't make sense to hold onto them. I don't know what deals are to be had at the moment with he standings so packed tight, but we need to do something to improve a tiny bit before the playoffs.

                    Right now, I'd be reluctant to trade DeMar, Kyle, Ross, Carroll or JV. I think in order to trade Scola, Joseph or Patterson another 3 point shooter needs to come back.

                    I almost feel like JJ is our most tradeable asset. DeMar, Ross and Carroll are all playing solid perimeter defense, and JJ is the weakest offensively of the bunch.

                      Depends. If Carroll and Ross' shots aren't falling, they can't do much else. JJ isn't a good shooter, but he consistently finishes at the rim well. Shooting 56% this season, shot 59% last season.

                        Measured in 2-man units, Ross only has negative points-per-100 possessions with one player. Bizmack. Everyone else has positive numbers with Ross. Last night Ross' shot wasn't falling(3/9, 2/6 from 3) but he was +15 in 21 minutes and part of the critical stretch that won us the game.

                        I'm not saying JJ isn't a good player, but JJ/DeMar/Biz units are terrible(3pt percentage drops by 18.2% with those 3 on the floor), and DeMar and Biz seem to be staying.

                          Fair enough. I probably would trade JJ before I trade DD, Biz or Ross.

                            Thanks for your answers guys.

                            I think that the idea of trading JJ and one of our picks for Casspi would be great.

                            But would Sacramento make the trade? Maybe, if we offer them a good pick.

                              The LAC 2017 pick would do it IMO.
