Could this trade work?
The Clippers would get the 2nd pick ( Rubio)
The Warriors would get the 1st pick ( Griffin)
The Grizzles would get the 7th pick and cash considerations ( Clark and more cash to resign Gay)
Also, they could get a 2nd rounder. They have 2 1st rounders in 2010. They could load up
what do u think?
No. Anthony Randolph is going nowhere.
The 1st overall pick and Davis back....that sounds like a good proposal for Randolph.
Check out my mock...you seem like you have a good head on your shoulders about the Draft and the NBA
You've got to realize how much faith Nelson has in these kids. He sat Crawford, Ellis, Wright, Jackson, Maggette, and Biedrins to give them looks last year. Baron Davis want's to go back to Golden State and that's apparent, but I Don't see them giving up Randolph to make it happen.
A real basketball trade I see happening with the Clippers is a 1-1 with Chris Kaman going to the Bobcats for Raymond Felton. Why would this trade go down?
The Clippers biggest need is a back up point guard not a 3rd string power forward. Adding Felton gives them a legitimate backup to run with baring any Baron Davis injury. This trade also Makes Marcus Camby start at the 5 and has Randolph play the 4. You get to ease in your future with Blake Griffin and Deandre Jordan rather than rushing their time into this league.
The Clippers would have a starting 5 of Davis, Gordon, Thornton, Randolph and Camby with Felton, Davis, Jordan and Griffin on the bench. I think their going to target a serviceable swingman with their MlE.
For the Bobcats you allow DJ Augistine to run the show and move Okafor to his more natural position of the 4 than the 5. They still need to address shooting guard or a back up point in the draft, but I don't think that will be a problem.
That gives the Bobcats a starting 5 of Felton, Bell, Wallace, Okafor and Kaman with Diaw coming off the bench. The teams still rebuilding and I wouldn't be surprised if they try and trade up for Harden he really fits this team perfectly.
I'm as big of a fan of Anthony Randolph as anyone on here, but he's not worth bringing Baron Davis Back.
I feel you and I understand...But you think the prospect of Bringing in Davis and Griffin (who could give you 15-10 off the bat) wouldnt force them to give up Randolph?
