Detroit - Utah - Houston trade
Jazz get a Calderon a good PG, and Morris young solid post player, and a draft pick from Houston.
Houston gets a low post player than score inside and out with Milsap
Detroit gets Patterson who can space the floor with Monroe or Drummond, and Tinsley is a add-on.
Dude Calderon just got traded to the Pistons, there is no way they are giving up on him.
I don't know about this trade. Seems like kind of a gamble for the Rockets. For a start, rookie contracts are dollar-for-dollar the most valuable in the league in terms of production per dollar paid. Even though I know Millsap would be a good piece to take them over the top, does Morey think he can convince Millsap to sign long-term past his 1 year rental?
Besides, Patterson and Morris are both still young and have time to improve. Would they really sacrifice that for a shot at the WCF? I dunno, it might just be me nitpicking.
Yea but Houston would still have two other really young forwards, Jones and Montajunas. It is a gamble if he leaves, but Houston is a team that was willing to gamble for Howard not resigning.
Detroit is still rebuilding, they really have no need for a veteran like Calderon when he'll be gone after this year, if they can get a nice up-and-comer like Patterson for him they'd be better off in the long-term.
But the Pistons don't need Patterson in any way whatsoever. They are grooming Monroe for the PF position, who is much better.
doesn't mean he can't be a nice bench player, need more than 5 guys to win.
but then you're just destroying chemistry. No one in their right minds have trade for a starting PG, start him, then trade him for a bench PF that they don't need. Messing around with the team doesn't make it better. Most trades are done out of necessity, not "Why not?"s.
Calderon isn't their starting PG for long, he's a F/A after the season. Also he just got there, so there's not really any chemistry, and if there is it's all for not, he won't be back.
Monroe and Drummond are not really good fits next to each other, they both occupy the paint. The same issue with Dwight and Pau. Detroit is going to need a guy who can play next to them, by stepping out and spacing the floor.
I don't think that Houston does this one.....I doubt that Daryl Morey would trade Morris and Patterson straight up for Millsap, so I don't see why he would do it as part of a three way trade. I think Houston wiould rather dump power forwards in a future sign and trade opportunity to get a legitimate second option behind James Harden (Jeremy Lin is obviously best served as a third of fourth option).
if utah wanted calderon why didnt they traded millsap when he was still in toronto? just asking
This trade is bad on so many levels for Detroit. Why would we want Tinsley? Calderon is a breathe of fresh air for the pistons at the point guard spot, why would they trade him?!
