For Iggy/L.Williams and top ten pick...If you lose Gay to FA...Iggy could fill the Void he leaves and plays a lot like the combo of Gay/OJ...with slashing and passing...he's also a top notch defender and doesn't need the ball much to impact games unlike Gay...Williams is a scoring point in the mold of Ellis but less talented...he's cheap at 5 mil and could be 6th man scoring off bench for fast breaking Grizzs...the top ten pick gives you shot at guys like Henry to replace OJ's shot and potential at the 2, Whiteside to replace Thabeet, Aminu to possibly replace Zac or take SF spot and move Iggy to 2 , Favors if he falls you'll be in love with pick,Monroe could be rotation guy today,Wes J could fall and quick offensive replacement to Gya and Mayo sorta , and others...You'd give up Mayo and Thabeet and some first rounders..I think they have one in the lottery and another mid first...Would you make this trade...I know OJ is a stud but you'd get 2 possibly 3 studs in returns w/ Williams and top ten pick...if not give me scenario you would trade Mayo and Picks
Grizzlies aren't trading Mayo. He's their future as of now and why would they say that he would to go to the summer league this year to improve his PG skills if they were to just trade him ?
you do realize they tried to trade Mayo AND Thabeet for Monta right?
If he's their future why worry about Gay leaving...And if he's the future point guard...doesnt that mean you've lost faith that he can be 2 guard Wade type??? Whats up...you cant have your cake and eat it too....
Is Iggy and Top ten pick worth your point guard project Mayo( you just said he's not a two any more) Thabeet( D-League) and late lotto mid 1st picks...if you lose Gay...you lose athletism,scoring,D, face of franchise...at least Iggy gives you slasher to complement Zac and Gasol...not to mention you could sign Gay and have him and Iggy running together...Is Mayo better than Iggy if you've just place him in the summer league to improve point guard skills...give him the Sixers and be done with it...will give you Lou Will to help with your pg problems...and with our lotto pick you could draft Wes, Henry or Whiteside to replace Mayo and Thabeet....
this wood be a total steal for 76ers
see rite now the grizzs r in a rebuilding stage rite now
dnt get me wrong 6ers r 2 but mayo is a gr8t starting core
and thabeet is a projec n i can see him turning out 2 be solid
and most of the ppl n the draft arent put butts in dem sits like mayo
Iggy is better all around player than Ellis...Im sold this deal happens straight up...but to be nice I throw in Williams(plays just like Ellis and a top 10 pick for Mayo/Thabeet/ and lotto pick/mid first pick...
I thinks this would make up for losing Gay and trading Mayo...Iggy/L.Williams and top ten pick...
Everyone already knew Mayo wasn't a D-wade type of guard, he doesn't have the elite athleticism that wade has and this is coming from an mayo stan.
also being an igoudala fan, I wouldn't make that trade, Oj stats are deflated with so many scorers at memphis, next year when he's at point you'll see how his stats are supposed to look, mayo could be a franchise player down the road, notice I said could, igoudala has shown that he can't be a number 1 option or 2 option on a good team, great role player, I would take him on any team if i had a scorer at the 2 or 3, but i'm not about to put my franchise in his hand, and Lou williams career bench player, streaky shooter, thabeet when he finally did get to play at the end of the year, he was averaging like 8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks, he learns how to not foul and you're getting 11 rebounds and 2 blocks a night, which is expected from him. so let that d-league crap go.
Is Williams better Conley today??? If Gay walks would Iggy be a good replacement...you still have top 12 pick and could draft 2G Henry/George/Anderson/Crawford to replace OJ's scoring >>>whats the big deal>>>>
ScareCrow215Legend, They're worried about Gay leaving because he's one of their best players and even though you have another player that's gonna be your core, you need some players to surround them to win and Gay is an excellent player, but not a franchise player. Also, there is a tread that has a new article confirming that Mayo would go point. SuperNova854, Keyword TRIED to trade him. If they sent him to the summer league to focus on point guard skills and trade him, what would be the point in that. Also Iguodala's a great player, but the way he's playing doesn't look like a player you want your franchise to start with. Another thing, Thabeet is a player who has potential to be a solid player in the league someday.
IGGY is Star type player and would replace Gay once he bolts...Gay wants more than IGGY is locked up for...then you swap picks draft a Shooting guard at 6 or 7(Wes or Xavier)..we wont need a 2 at that point we'll Make OJ our SG and draft Whiteside at 12 or 13(Memphis pick ) you'd get the 6th pick and IGGY for Mayo/Thabeet/and 13th pick
They haven't even done the lottery yet, so you can't assume all these things will happen. Iguodala is a star player, but not a player that you want your franchise to start with. Really when you look at this trade, Philly is getting all the good stuff.
why do you keep making threads of Iggy going to other teams?
Iggy fills the void left behind by Gay(he's prob. gone...but if he sign's ...Gay and Iggy are great wing combo...Gay is a scorer Iggy All around guy..much like Mayo....Who they tried to ttrade for Ellis a tweener ball hog with same contract as Iggy...at least they get a top ten pick and Iggy...the Sixers get two young pro's one with star potential the other with D potential...flip picks and draft 12 or 13 and go big and get another wing(Henry if the Grizzs dont draft him with 6th pick or Paul George) or Whiteside if he's there...
Iggy is not an all around guy. First of all he cannot shoot threes which is something a player somewhat needs to be an all around player so they can have more versatility and can get some turnovers. Iggy and Gay also both need the ball a lot which would not be a good combo.
scarecrow, this is the second Iggy/lou will to memphis for mayo/thabeet you created in the last 24 hours. Why the need for all these iggy trade threads. And just like i pointed out on the other thread, iggy and lou williams make like 3 times as much as thabeet/mayo so it wouldnt even work.
Iggy fills up the stat sheet...Is one of few guys that gets 20/6/6/2stls/1 blck pg and this is him playing out of position in Philly...Gay is a Sg Iggy is a 3..They could start at either position IMO...Gay is 3 pt shooter and natural scorer...they play off each other better than Mayo and Gay...Mayo cant guard the bigger 2's and 3's and that why there trying him at point guard...He be good fit on Sixers because they need a ball handling slasher and shooter...in essence a pure scorer...Mayo could play the point but he's a scorer at heart he's just to unselfish and smart to become a ball hog...I think Iggy and Gay give you a better shot at D'ing up Durant and Melo in the West...A big point guard thru. trade or FA and there in Biz...
"scarecrow, this is the second Iggy/lou will to memphis for mayo/thabeet you created in the last 24 hours"
"iggy and lou williams make like 3 times as much as thabeet/mayo so it wouldnt even work."
What the hell is the point in making 2 posts on a trade that won't even work ?
zero-first post was about why the trade wouldnt work. Second post was about him repeating the same trade over again even though it still doesnt work. But you are right, i would be better off not spending time even replying.
thats 8 to 10 mil...combined...I took Lou out the deal and it goes...Iggy 14 mil a year/Top 7 pick 2 to 3 mil for Mayo/Thabeet/Lottery pick 10 mil a year...Gay's contract comes off the books and you save 7 to 8 mil by letting him walk>>>I know how trades work and am aware of players salaries....
Scarecrow needs his own specific forum section and then he can post all of his trade Iggy threads and his draftnet.com GM chatter into that section.
Then the NBA Draft forum can actually have some topics that have meaning or a reason.
12 to 15 million a year....how would that have worked...stop trying to under sell my knowledge ...We almost got Amare last trade deadline and deal breaker was J Rich and Barbosa and Amare making comment along the lines of he wouldn't resign with any team trading for him(GSW,NEts,Heat,76ers) once Ed Stefanski saw no Amare or cap relief he choose to keep Iggy til this summer and a shot at young players in draft...
mayo and thabeet will cobine to make 9 mill next year.
lou will and iggy combine to make 18 mill. Add in cap holds for the draft picks and filling out the roster and even assuming they let gay and Ronni brewer walk, this trade doesnt work because memphis will still be over the cap and need to be within a certain % of salary which this trade is clearly not.
