    I was holding out hope of a 3 way deal that would bring Love to Houston, Aldridge to Minny & Asik to Portland, but with the way Love & the wolves are playing of late, that doesn't look like ann option.

    Other options that have been thrown around are Milsap, Horford, Illyasova, Ryan Anderson, Jeff Green, Rondo & Channing Frye amongst others.

    I know that there are already a few Trade Omer threads, so lock or merge if necessary. This is for those who don't have insider.

    I wouldn't mind the Morris Twins, Frye & a pick...or if we could convince OKC to give us Durant...:grin:

    Your thoughts on the best possible fits.

    Aldridge would be sick. He's worth holding out until February for. Hope the Blazers start sucking, and soon!

    Why do you want to trade Lin? He's been nothing short of spectacular so far this season.

    All those deals outside of the LMA are out of crapshoot land. Lamb for Asik? are you freaking kidding me? LMA is out of our reach unless we involve Lin to a 3rd team and packiage that asset along with Asik to Portland. Noway Asik by himself gets you LMA.

    Yeah there is a lot of delusion in these trade threads.

    I don't know if the salaries match, but for the Portland trade to make sense, they would ask for

    - Parsons
    - Asik
    - Jones
    - 1st round draft pick 2014

    Rockets get LMA.

    Man... I thought we were done with trade rumors! At least for awhile!

    But here we are two weeks into the season and once against Houston dominates the trade rumors... Lol

    Hopefully this gets resolved soon. I think these are most realistic options...
    Jeff Green and/or Brandon Bass
    Thad Young or Spencer Hawes
    Al Hordord or Paul Milsap
    Ryan Anderson

    Of those options, I think I'd take Jeff Green. He could start or come off the bench. If he comes off the bench we could have the most dynamic bench in the league with Lin/Green running the show.

    Only issue would be backup Center, is Greh Smith ready to get consistant minutes??? Idk.

    Morey should have moved him last offseason.

    Asik has had a crap attitude all season. He's quite cocky for having zero offensive game.

    Why can't TJones play backup C? He's 6'10 and 250. Strong enough against most backups surely?

    Silly article, Tyreke Evans is already coming off the bench. Whether Asik shows up there has no bearing on him being a super sub unless you're talking about sending Asik there to come off the bench with Tyreke which isnt happening.

    Tiago Splitter? He's basically a smaller Asik.

    Has to be between Aldridge, Anderson, and Millsap. I don't doubt Philly might be hot after Asik too but dunno that they have anything we want outside MCW.
