    True, that's why I'm not in favor of going through this route.

    Not a trade. But I am watching Utah and if they fall out of the playoff race at the trade deadline, I wonder if JOE JOHNSON will do a buy out. He would fit perfectly on the Rockets as a 3/4 that can create their own shot, shoot with range and knows MDA's system.

    Since we consolidated our assets in the Paul trade and there’s no Melo player demanding to come here I don’t see any real trading options available to us. You would have to consider trades like Capela and Ryno for Gasol or Cousins. Which would take rebuilding or locker room problems to make happen. Even then who knows if Morey would go that route.

    I've been watching aaloooott of Cavs basketball and Crowder seems to be having quite the down year. I wonder what we could snag him for.

    Beard-CP3-Boogie has a higher ceiling than Beard-CP3-Capela, so it's a risk worth taking, especially when you consider the problems Boogie poses for the Warriors.

    Okay, don't judge me for this PIPE DREAM....but, if you can conceive, you can achieve! :D

    First, New Orleans realizes that they don't have championship hopes, even though they will probably make the playoffs. Talks to Boogie, he says he will leave or he won't commit, so they decide to trade him, but also to help him go somewhere he may like so that he commits to resign, because most teams don't want him for a end of year rental when they know they still can't compete with GS or us. Sooooooooooooooo...since Road Ryno would be at home again in NO :)cool: don't judge me), NO agrees to:

    Boogie for Ryno, Joe Chee, rights to Llull (who will never come and we will never need), and our 2020 1st.

    then......

    OKC implodes because they will barely be an 8th seed or not make the playoffs at all (wishing), and decide to trade PG13, and not many takers are there because they all feel he really wants to go to the Lakers. Sooooooooooo....OKC agrees to:

    PG13 for Ariza, Black (or Nene if necessary), Onuaku, and Troy Williams for salary matching, along with 1 or 2 - 2nd round picks.

    Money wise, both of those trades will work after Dec. 15th. That would make our SUPER TEAM:


    CP3/BBrown
    Harden/Gordon
    PG13/Moute
    Cousins/Tucker
    Capela/Nene or Black

    WE WOULD KICK THE WARRIORS AND ANYONE IN THE LEAGUE AZZ! :cool:

    The question is....if OKC and NO were crazy enough and willing to do it, would Morey? We all know he should...but would Harden and CP3 sign off on trading Ariza and maybe Nene for this super team? Would they be willing to give up the future cash cow and possibly good player in Joe Chee? Obviously they seem like no brainers, but a lot of factors play in here. And of course that means giving up any potential hope of Lebron joining next summer. Would we be willing to pay that HUGE LUXURY TAX bill?

    I'm sure other teams can offer more, but what team is Boogie going to guarantee that he will resign with, that after trading away assets for him, can still contend THIS YEAR? And everyone knows that PG13 wants to be a Laker, so what team will offer more to get him for a half season rental and think that they can compete for a Championship this year?

    Both players are worth more than these trade scenarios for us, but would anyone else be willing to take a half a year risk on losing assets for these players that can walk after the season?

    Thoughts? :p:eek:

    I'm not doing that. Gordon and Ryno are extremely valuable and I don't want to give them up for a rental. Maybe if they gave us a first instead of us giving them a first.

    On second thought maybe we go ahead and do it bc it also clears space for LeBron next summer.

    Capela
    George
    Ariza
    Harden
    Paul

    4 mins left in first

    Nene
    Tucker
    George
    Luc
    Harden

    To Start Second

    Capela
    Tucker
    Ariza
    Luc
    Paul

    4 mins in
    Capela
    Black
    George
    Luc
    Harden

    Last 3 mins of half
    Nene
    George
    Ariza
    Harden
    Paul

    Too much versatility

    I actually wouldn’t mind this if we had a guarantee that PG would re-sign...I’d want to keep Gordon, but at the end of the day, I’d be cool with this

    PG is a perfect fit here and exactly what we need

    Bahahhaa @ these homers saying "No" to a trade including EGo and Ryno for PG13. EGo is good, yeah, but he's no Paul George. Ryno is valuable??!?!? bahahahah oh god

    EG and Ryno for PG is a tough trade. I dunno if I'd be down with that or not
