    Honestly, at this point, I would just give them Ego.

    Not only for how he has been playing but to END THIS WHOLE SCENARIO AND GET IT OVER WITH.

    Wolfson might hear things from sources there in Minnesota but he doesn't mention it; more like just another sports meathead giving a little-informed opinion.

    What Miami Heat package has to be offered to be better than a Rockets offer of 4 1st Round Picks +Knight/Chriss filler?

    Richardson + 2019 1st + ????????

    Also, can Miami (or Houston) facilitate getting Dieng off Minny? That is another sweetener.

    Thibs wants a "player that can contribute now." Is that Richardson? Is that Gordon? Is that Player X from a 3rd Team?

    I would do it. Gordon is not a defensive player and I will probably get bagged on for saying this, but I think that Carmelo can give us what we previously got from Gordon. Plus, if we keep Brandon Knight, and he gets healthy, we don't need to be worried about the backup PG spot. We may still need to pick up a backup PG or combo guard though.

    Man, this is some backdoor rumoring that would make DC jealous.

    We don't need EGO if we have Butler.

    Thibs really has shown everyone, from JB to Taylor, who's boss.

    Yes! We'll find another 3 pt shooter. Jimmy butler defense with tuckers and chris pauls and hopefully when clint gets the bleach out of his system makes us "THE TEAM"!

    This shouldn't be a debate you give Ego right away.

    Butler fills 2 spots in 1. He fills Egos offense and Arizas defense.

    This is stupid....so your telling me tibbs and owners are not trading to Houston (best offer) because they don't want them to be good...so is that a way of saying you will take less as long as it's not a Western conference team?.... That is just asinine

    Butler is what 6'8"? He can play SF......and SG......Gordon is 6'4"......equal talent always take the taller player.
