Would you rather (offseason addition)
Pay Hibbert or McGee 13+ mil or take a flyer on Greg Oden for 2-6 mil/ You are looking for a starting center but you already have limited cap
Trade your top 5 pick in a loaded draft for a very good borderline all star or pick Davis, Lamb or Drummond?
Give a big contract to Gallinari or Wilson Chandler?
Give the contract to Gallinari.
What is your idea of a borderline all-star? It may be different to mine.
borderline All-Star? So guy like Iguodala, Jefferson, Granger, Scola?
Curry, Ellis, Granger, Iggy , Joe J, etc
1-oden. I doubt oden wil ever stay healthy, but i dont see mcgee as worth 13 mill at all and hibbert might be, but that still seems a little steep for him.
2-depends on what team i am and which player exactly and what his salary is. If im a contender, then ill probably take the borderline all-star. If im the wizards, give me the top 5 pick.
I think Hibbert will get 14+ , he will look at Chandler's deal and aim for that
Pay Hibbert or McGee 13+ mil or take a flyer on Greg Oden for 2-6 mil/ You are looking for a starting center but you already have limited cap? Hibbert no doubt, Mcgee is an athletic freak but looks like he plays and 1 ball other then simply playing nba ball, Oden unfortunately has injury issues and can't be relied on.
Trade your top 5 pick in a loaded draft for a very good borderline all star or pick Davis, Lamb or Drummond? I would keep my pick, The draft is loaded and I can pick the player i want and develop him to play the stlye i want.
Give a big contract to Gallinari or Wilson Chandler? Gallinari
Getting Oden for 2-6 mil is a deal compared to giving Hibbert or McGee big money, even though he may not stay healthy.
I would keep the pick if I can get a guy that compliments the guys I already have, and if I can't get my guy, I'll take a position of need from another team
That's tough, but Chandler seems like he has more room to grow, Gallo seems like a designated spot up shooter.
^^^considering Gallo get to the line about 6 times a games i would call him more then a spot up shooter. That was his role in NY but he proved last last year he could do more then just spot up shoot. He can improve on developing his attacking the rim skills but its enough to get him to the line for now...
big men, but more than $12mil for Hibbert or $10mil forMcGee is over paying. Hibbert is reaching his peak this year, and McGee is too head-casey to give too much $$$ to.
1. I dont think that either Hibbert will get $13m+ especialy considering that derrick rose and kd got extended off their rookie contracts and started at $16m. I think its more likely that they will go b/t 9-11 like deandre jordan. That said; if the the choice is overpay a big man who cant rebound, a head case, or someone with no knees... I guess I would take the headcase and hope he straigtens out while I throw money at him.
2. Curry and Ellis are both proven comodities and Ellis is entering his prime while Curry is still on his rookie contract..either is worth more than an unproven top five pick...I'd prob take Ellis b/c Curry is hurt..
3. Until this year, Gallo has been embaressingly bad on defense, now he is just bad, but he can drive and shoot and pass and is near 7 ft. Chandler plays decent d on sf(s) and pf(s) is tough and big for his position, but he cant shoot the three like gallo and is in china so I would take Gallo...
Ellis, Gallo, and McGee... kinda reminds me of the AI, Melo, Camby Nuggets... two wing scorers and a big men who tries to swat everyone they let in the lane.
