Another Trade idea, whats the damage?
ORL; Pau Gasol, Rudy Gobert Uath 27 overall pick, & SAC 2014 2nd round pick
SAC; Hedo Turkoglu, Jordan Hill, LAL 2015 2nd round pick, UTA 2015 2nd round pick
LAL; R.Jefferson, M.Williams, Patrick Patterson, Niko Vucevic
UTAH; John Salmons, Glen Davis, Chuck Hayes
-Orlando get a well needed vet with Pau Gasol, a young big & a future pick.
-Kings will receive a really good energy player with Hill, Hedo will free up money once season ends & they have two future picks.
-Lakers will get two new young bigs with Niko Vucevic & Pat Patterson, they will also get two throw ins with R.Jefferson & M.Williams
-Utah gets J.Salmons, Glen Davis, & Chuck Hayes
I wouldn't do that as Utah.
In one sentence. Here they give up a rookie center Gobert for 3 bench players who are expensive and take away minutes from their prospects. Also, they are trying to tank and this does not help their cause. You got me, had to use 2 sentences.
drk3351 explain why you think this trade is bad for Utah, for what Utah is giving up it actually would be a decent trade to acquire glen davis averaging 15 points 8 rebs and Salmons averaging 8 points and 7 rebs and you all know chuck hayes hustles
I was going to give a real response, but it's such a god awful trade for the Jazz that I'm no longer going to.
Glen Davis is coming off of setback surgery and could be out a while. Salmons is washed up and only provides a few points on mediocre shooting %. Chuck is an undersized and overpaid big man who will not garner a ton of interest when his contract is up.
Utah doesn't have playoff aspirations, they want to give young stars as much playing time/game experience as possible and build through the draft. Another thing is they have a ton of cap room availability/flexibility going into 2014-15 (Jefferson, rush, biedrins = 24 mil. Off the books). Utah does not need big baby's or chuck Hayes' contracts (I don't know if salmons has anymore than a year left). Plus gobert has serious upside and is ready to play minutes.
Why would Utah want two ball stoppers when they're trying to figure out who to extend 4th Year options to?
Considering even in his prime, Salmons only average 3~4 rebounds, I VERY highly doubt he would average 7 a game.
Nicola Vucevic is also much more valuable at this point then Pau or Rudy, as Orlando arent looking to make playoffs this year so why would they want a guy who is good now, when they could keep Vucevic who isnt even close to tapping his immense potential, lose more games, get a better pick and then have Vucevic develop into a great centre down the line along side whoever they take in the 2014 draft? Silly trade for all teams except the Lakers(surprise, surprise).
That probably took you all summer to come up with and was about as stupid as we've seen.
coldcuts just a bit of advice in regards to you newly joining nbadraft.net
