    I would be absolutely shocked if Rob is traded.

    Moving both for Gordon Hayward would definitely change the complexion of this team.

    Might not have any other choice. I freaking love Rob too.

    I can’t imagine a trade where Gordon and Covington both go out and we get better

    I agree with this. Hayward may not be able to overcome the overall loss of both of them, especially defensively. He is also an expiring contract with a history of injuries. I would pass up on him.

    How do you feel about someone like Kevin Love, or Blake Griffin paired with Russ and James?

    no chance that’s better than RoCo alone. I’d take Eric over either of them too based on Contract alone.

    I would trade both of those guys for a true game changing addition. Embiid type addition.

    i Love Paul G! If there was any way to actually not trade Rob and still get PG would be a dream scenario. PG is a legitimate 2nd scorer in a team. Love his game.

    If they could somehow trade EG for Turner and a 2nd rounder that would be optimal. That way they can replace him in the draft or whatever.

    Yes, I would do that.

    I do not believe that the Clippers would.

    Gordon for Turner is way closer to equal value than anyone on this forum wants to admit. I think the Rockets would have to throw in a second pick or two but the trade helps both sides significantly. MDA needs to just accept the Pacers job.

    Pacers in: Gordon, Rivers (PO in), Hardaway Jr (opt in which he will 100% do) + Seth curry + Dallas 2020 first, 2 Houston 2RPs

    Dallas in: victor Oladipo a young big 3

    Houston in: Myles Turner +save about 1.7 million in space.

    Then we can create a 2nd deal with House for Mo Bamba

    it’s very possible

    Honestly I love the length and shooting. Imagine Turner, Bamba and Covington creating havoc on defense?? SHEESH. Then on the other side being able to be a lob or 3 point shooting threat??

    Cannot play Turner and Bamba together.

    Rather receive Oladipo in that 3 team trade.

    Then House for Bamba.

    Yes they can...and they won’t be playing together the whole game long...they can booth space the floor and run pick and roll...James and Bamba pick and roll and Russ and turner pick and pop.
