    I would LOVE to get Shareef. If he holds Vancouver hostage (a la Francis), we could probably get him for as little as Cato and Williams. Heck, if we had to throw in the #9 pick, I'd do that. Shareef is perhaps one of the top 20-25 players in the league, and he's really young, too. He gives us a legitimate go-to guy, someone who can score both in the post or on the perimeter. Seeing him and Francis play would be a joy. The following trade might be possible:

    Vancouver gets:
    Walt Williams
    Kelvin Cato
    #9 pick

    Houston gets:
    Shareef Abdur-Rahim
    Obina Ekezie?

    You think Vancouver would Bite on that? =)

    i suure hope so. They get an athletic center in Cato, and Walt can definitely shoot. But basically, they don't get much. I mean, Walt is no comparison to Shareef at the 3. I'm thinking, even if he voices his "disgruntled-ness" they'd still get a better deal than what the Rockets have to offer. I sure hope I'm wrong though...
