    Please! Having a Harden, Butler, Capela trio long term with CP aging gracefully would set us up so nicely.

    Not sure I'm feeling that kind of trade. 2 very solid rotation pieces for 1 that may or may not stay healthy. Exactly what does he bring to the table that we don't already get from 2 of our better defenders. Gordon can drive and shoot and would be a starter on any other team if not borderline all-star and PJ is the kind of glue guy you need to win a Championship.

    I'm directly on the fence on that one. RIP defense. In Morey I trust.

    Losing both Gordon and Tucker would be a huge blow imo. Tucker's ability to guard all frontcourt positions give the defense a lot of flexibility. Chriss has to be involved in some way as a 2nd trade to Minnesota.

    I rather keep EG and Tucker if that’s what will cost us to get Butler.

    Please don't trade Tucker! We absolutely MUST have his defensive intensity that spreads to others. Figure out another way to get the deal done!

    Can Butler also be our new defensive coordinator?

    We should dig up Ronnie Brewer's or Kirk Hinrich's corpse and offer him and Gordon straight up. Thibs would surely bite.

    Steph Curry would **** his pants if we were to acquire Butler.

    Harden, CP3, Butler and Melo will be going at him non-stop on those pick and rolls while he's on the floor....he'll have no legs on offense.

    Deal would be based around EG or Tucker, not both.

    No commitment from Jimmy B, No PJ.

    Salary dump maybe? Set up for max cap space in 2019 when Jimmy is a free agent?

    I’d hate to lose EG and especially PJ but if we can get a verbal agreement that Butler will re-sign then we could potentially have three top ten players this year with Capela being borderline top thirty. I think that Morey can restock role players easily with that core and it gives us a way better shot to compete with Golden state this year and moving forward.
