  • The trade thread

    Might as well have one for the craziness that's about to happen.

    This just in: Ben Gordon and a protected 1 from detroit to charlotte for corey magette.

    i like the trade for charlotte and not at all for detroit.

    Does this impact Charlotte's draft choice? I would say it is safer to say that Beal is off their board.

      Good deal for Detroit. It saves them money and they can amensty Charlie V if they need to.
      Charlotte is just gobbling up 2-guards - Kemba Walker, Gerald Henderson, Gordon.

                Not quite sure what they would do with the cap space. No offense to Detroit, but it seems like a rather depressing place with almost no fans. Every game the Raptors had with them at Detroit, there are like no one watching. I would think that Toronto is a more favorable destination than Detroit xD

                  The low assist total coupled with the liberal shot attempts beg to differ. The cats at used DJ Augustin with Walker on the floor a lot last season. Guess who was the point guard in that situation.

                  Maybe this year will be different, but Kemba's last season at UConn and first season in the nba showed that he shoots first, second and third and passes fourth. He also had a lot of questions coming out of college as to whether he could run an offense.

                    They haven't amnestied Charlie V yet, so they don't have cap space yet. But getting out of the Ben Gordon contract saves them money. Who knows what they'll do with the cap space, but at least they'll have it.

                    As for the fan base, the recession hit their fan base hard, but when the Pistons are winning, the fans back them bigtime. You'd rather pay to see a winning product than losing product.

                      That's easy to verify.

                      Of Kemba Walker's 20 Top 5-man units - http://www.82games.com/1112/11CHA1.HTM - D.J. Augustin appears three times (Units 3, 15, and 16).

                      The data does not support your statement at all.

                        But you gotta understand that he needed to on both teams. Especially on the Cats, they were the worst team in NBA History someone has gotta take shots. If he had a better teammates he'd be averaging much better assists numbers

                              Apparently just some cap savings. Doesn't really matter to the Mavs. Odom was a failure on their team anyways, so no real difference to the Mavs roster. Odom probably won't play that much better on the Clippers than he did on the Mavs. Once you involve yourself with the Kardashians, your NBA career is basically going down the drain
