Cavs interested in Granger
First time posting here and I'm ready to take the hit if you guys think this is a bad proposal.
basically, 3 team trade between CLE / DAL / IND
CLE gets: Danny Granger + #23 (from IND)
DAL gets: Luke Walton & CJ Miles + #31 & #33 (from CLE)
IND gets: Dion Waiters (from CLE) + Marion + #13 (from DAL)
Cleveland gets Danny Granger, though injury prone but can definitely help Irving if he is healthy (ever) and Cleveland still get to save their #1 pick, shipping Watiers away allow them to draft McLemore and drafting someone like Tim Hardaway Jr to backup the 2 spot.
Dallas saves money from Luke expiring contract and the 2nd round picks. CJ Miles provide some 3 pointers to replace the lost of OJ Mayo.
Pacers gets either a starting SG or a 6th man off the bench (Waiters role in college), solid veteran 3/4 spot - Marion and gets to move up to #13 to draft someone that backs the PG spot.
A slight favor in Pacers I understand, but if somehow CLE is able to fix Granger's injuries, CLE will be one dangerous team with the lineup below:
Any comments will be greatly appreciated!!!
I think Cavs will wanna keep Waiters, it's all about young core at the moment for them. Building through the draft is key for them
Are u a Pacers fans because for them the trade is fantastic. They trade an injured player they probably wont resign into 4 years of a controlled rookie contract combo guard .A probable 20 ppg scorer that could potentially put them over the top against the HEAT.Plus they get to move up 10 spots in the draft. Plus they get a useful player like Marion to strengthen the bench who has 1 year left on his deal so no extra money is coming their way,
Thank God this is a misleading title. We'd have to give up half the team for a one year rental of an injury prone player. We'd get Bynum'd.
You shouldn't post "Cavs interested in Granger" at less you have a source. Next time put "trade idea" because there is a bunch of trade ideas on here, and a lot of sources, just to help you out.
it is a real rumor, not just a "trade idea" cuzzcuzz.
"Granger a target of the Cavs?
June, 10, 2013
By Nick Borges | ESPN.com
As of Monday, the Cleveland Cavaliers have made no decision regarding the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA draft. Most mock drafts, including the one by ESPN.com's Chad Ford, has them taking Kentucky's Nerlens Noel. Other options include Georgetown's Otto Porter and Kansas' Ben McLemore.
From Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio: "The Cavs appear to be intrigued not just by McLemore’s remarkable perimeter touch, but his explosiveness near the basket. Like most evaluators, they believe he can turn into a bona fide scoring whiz at the next level."
The Cavs top need is to upgrade the small forward position and if they don't take Porter, they may consider going after Danny Granger, according to Amico. Granger missed all but five games this season due to knee issues and that could deter possible trades. Pacers head coach Frank Vogel has said Granger, making $14 million next season, will keep his starting position going into training camp. Granger's current deal expires in 2014.
Cavs owner Dan Gilbert wants the team back in the playoffs next season and he has probably told general manager Chris Grant to go for a major deal to make it happen. Granger would be that type of a trade."
I apologize, didn't see a link on your first post. Bad move for the cavs, dude making too much money. I wouldn't make the trade, and you don't know how healthy that knee is.
my first post? I didn't make the first post in this thread, I was just backing the original dude up with a source. If Cleveland doesn't draft Otto Porter, I think Granger might be a decent fit. Take a chance, and if it doesn't work out, his contract will expire in time to sign LeBron James when he is a free agent again. Everyone in Miami will be old and over the hill in 2-3 years and Cleveland will be loaded with young talent and athleticism.
Cleveland should consider trading for Granger, but not at the expense of Waiters or Irving or Thompson. My friend and I were thinking about a Varejao & Gee for Granger and some expiring contract. The teams swap injury-prone players. :)
Trading waiters is ridiculous he had one hell of a rookie season. Draft mcelmore there is no such thing as to much talent and get a sf in the second round or late first Cj Leslie is an intriguing small forward prospect and Otto Porter is very similar to a Shane Battier type of player so him going number one is ridiculous. Its better to go boom or bust one instead of role player because let's be honest every draft has a let's round role player even undrafted if you just want a steady player to just be solid why not just sign a veteran. Can anyone on this site picture Porter being any better than kawhi Leonard or Paul George if those guys aren't event top 5 picks in there drafts granted they were better drafts how can Porter go one. I can understand top ten but first overall is outlandish. Even when Kenyon Martin went first he was assumed to be a all star and eventually made a couple all stars and finals but who honestly believes ported has all star potential. He compares himself to Tayshaun prince. Prince is a nice player but I wouldn't even take him one in this draft.
Why try for injured granger when you could have gone after Rudy gay who went to Toronto both talented and making around the same money wise but the Cav's go after the injured one don't we have enough if those type players allredy with that said I still want them to choose nerlens Noel at 1 because he reps defense. What's the use of scoring points when you can't stop the other team and your only scoreing option is Kyrie and thristan use remaining picks on offensive players like CJ Leslie or that pointguard that led in scoreing to pair with Kyrie and waiters also need center if Andy and Noel both get hurt take that guy from Kansas who hustles and block shots and is a 7footer we need more internal defense than offense no one ripped bill Russell for not scoreing and he's a hall of famer if Noel be comes a defensive force and you pass on him fire the whole front office
