    Gordon may not be shopped, hes on a good contract for a player who can make a impact. You need those vets who can play, even on a young team. Gordon and Wall will probably be here.

    hard pass kmj is learning to shoot will be a terrific 3 for us. My guess next year is 16 pts 8 rebounds 2 blocks

    Interesting idea, but I'd keep our guys. Kuzma has potential, but he just feels like Fool's Gold. Caldwell-Pope is solid, but would rather keep Nwaba or Brown.

    2 trade ideas I would propose to LAC to improve their team. They are asset poor to do many moves. Trying to move Wall or EG off the Rockets.

    John Wall to LAC
    for
    Zubac. (asset), Kennard (cost of doing business), Beverley (expiring/asset).

    EG to LAC
    for
    Beverley (expiring)

    We lose the best player in the trade (KMJ) for the worst player in the NBA (kuzma). Don't want a player who cares more about Instagram than basketball.

    I've been wondering this all year. Does Gordon actually have anything left to entice a contending team or is he finally done.

    He had a long injury history in New Orleans, after his initial rebirth with Rockets for a few years, he can't shake injuries the past few years. I just don't know if a contending team would be willing to take on his salary and give up trade pieces with his huge availability risk.

    Plus, when he has played the past 2 seasons, he seems to have lost his 3 point shot.

    It's frustrating because that is basically $60-65 million of "dead" weight on the cap between him and Wall for 2 more seasons.

    Most important move to make is Wood for the best draft pick(s) available

    After that little deals, move House for a 2nd, move Augustin/Bradley for a bad contract + draft pick

    Don’t move Gordon unless he’s neutral value, same for Wall.

    I like the idea of "potentially" moving Wood, but we need to get his value higher. If he can stay healthy and be a 20/10 guy next year, the trade deadline could get interesting for him.

    With that said, I like Wood's game and think he could be part of the rebuild if he can stay healthy. I wouldn't give him away, a team needs to blow us away with a deal if he performs next year.

    Move House--pleasssse! Good with Bradley going for a 2nd, but like the idea of keeping Augustin. He's savvy, composed and can calm a team down. Good to have a vet PG with these qualities, plus he can shoot the 3.

    EG won't likely garner anything unless he proves he's healthy next year and goes at the deadline. Wall is probably in the same boat x3, his contract makes it tough, but damn if he's healthy he can sure get up and down the court quick.

    Don't want to take on any more bad contracts, just hoping someone sees Wall as a potential solution (LAC please step up).

    @Shark44

    Wood right now may be worth a late lotto, Warriors, Spurs, Hornets, Pelicans, Kings are all picking in that range who could use Wood

    If we keep him until next season we risk him getting hurt, underperforming, and tanking his value. He currently has 2 years left on his deal, I don’t see the need to wait longer with hopes his stock improves, he greatly outperformed his contract and could return a lotto pick, I say we cut our winnings now

    Wood is better than anything we would get with a mid lottery pick. Don’t believe he was really injured except the first time.

    TBN,
    It's a little like the stock market, do I sell with a 30% gain now or do I ride a little longer to see if I can get a 10x or more return? I bought NETFLIX at $19 and sold at $48; nice gain you say... now it's over $500.

    I'm in my 60's now so I should be more conservative, but my portfolio is still riding the growth/tech sector because I believe it's the future and I'm going to live until I'm 100+. Will that happen? Only God knows, but I'm definitely in the camp of I'd rather "burn out than fade away".

    Neither of us has to be right or wrong, it's just a different approach on life. For now I'm riding the CW wagon until his value is either sky high, he earns a key role in the rebuild or plays out this contract and goes another way.

    Rather trade EGo because Khyri does the same thing EGo does, perimeter defense and 3ball, just younger and much more consistently.

    Khyri is similar to a young EGo, their games very much complements Porter's.

    But rather keep EGo than give him away or worse, lose an asset to move him.

    Wall and EGo leading second unit is not terrible at all.

    EGo led that HOUnds 2nd unit during 20 game win streak let's not forget.
