Rumor has it the Rockets are on the verge of trading Brooks, Landry, and McGrady for Amare and Barbosa. To me, this is a ridiculous deal especially if we are just renting Amare for a season then he can just leave to sign with another team although it'd be 2010. I just don't like the idea of Brooks leaving us unless we're going to buy a pick and draft a PG like Nick Calathes, Maynor, Lawson, or Collison. Someone who is a veteran at the college level not a Jrue Holiday Potent type player. Thoughts on this possible trade?
What is your source?
I think that trade mihlght work. For the suns l, you're already losing amare but it sucks to give up barbosa although Aaron brooks or even brandon Jennings I think is a solid replacement. For Houston you get rid of a lot, but you get a good one two punch with the bigs in Yao (if healthy) and amare
i dont like this trade for houston. It seems like barbosa and wafer are now your primary scoring options on the wings if you don't resign artest and that worries me. I like the inside combo of amare and yao but you give up too much. I would be ok with trading mcgrady but I would try to rework the deal to keep brooks.
I think this is a legit trade for both teams. Many people forget The Rockets have Kyle Lowery. Houston adds a 20-10 guy who they can resign in 2010. Barbosa could be a solid player who can add to the fast backcourt.
The Suns are getting a hustler in Landry, A expiring contract in T-mac and Brooks who can replace Nash (Who i believe they will trade before the trade deadline.
I didn't forget about lowry. He is the Rondo of Houston. Decent point guard but can't make a jumper to save his life.
I think Lowry could be a very competent point guard if someone would give him a chance.
I am a big Kyle Lowry fan. He is one of the best PGs in the league at penetrating to the hoop. He is also committed to defense.
