CHRIS BOSH TRADE WATCH
now even though bosh hasnt come out and said he wont resign with the rapotors. i think BC is looking to move him . because i know and yall know BC Is a smart man. and i think he knows thier chances of resigining him are 70 percent.
here are the teams i think we could and know will make a run at bosh at the deadline.
it seems houston has the edge unless the lakers throw in another good player
Houston probably has the most to offer the Raptors, or atleast is willing to give the most to get Bosh.
what can houston offer thats better then bynum for short and long term? you have a very good young big man and you can move barani to the 4
I have not heard about Orlando and Denver what would they have to give up to get him?
I dont know, I think they Lakers could offer the most, but I'm not quite sure if Bosh Lakers is the best for the Lakers....It probably makes them better, but Bynum is a legit center, whereas Gasol/ Bosh are finesse type players....Also, Too much talent isn't always a good thing
too much talent with a average coach isnt a godo thing but when you have a good coach and players who are willing to work together then its not bad. boston showed that with 3 hof. and the old old lakers showed it as well as the old celtics. as long as everyone is willing to work together for a common goal then it can work
idk why houston wants bosh that bad...they already have 2 very above average PF's
To Bulls: Chris Bosh and Sonny Weems
To Raptors: David West, John Salmons and two #1 Picks
To Hornets: Tyrus Thomas and Jannero Pargo
It's seems pretty logicial, if Chris Bosh tells the Raptors he wants out of Toronto.
People have a hard time grasping that Chris Bosh has never had anything bad to say about Toronto. I have heard him say he has no interest in returning to Houston. I have heard him dismiss rumors that he wants to play in Miami. I also still see that Toronto is likely to have the #5 seed this year. This is not Pau in Memphis where the team stunk or even Garnett in Minnesota where the front office was basically pushing him out the door. I get it. The Knicks stink. The Bulls stink. The Rockets are mediocre. Their fans feel they are entitled to something better so, of course, a star on an equally mediocre/bad team would love to come to town because the new situation is just SOOOOO much more appealing.
Also, losing him for nothing is better than dealing him for a bad contract. Working a sign-and-trade next summer is better than some of the poo-poo platters being bandied about. Denver has absolutely nothing worth entertaining. Orlando has nothing either. Nobody is going to deal Chris DAMN Bosh for Marcin Gortat, Mickael Pietrus, and Brandon Bass.
for some reason toronto is listening to some houston trades so they must feel it is better then poo poo and they seem to really be interested in the laker deal if the lakers throw in another player. i dont know how he feels about toronto because i cant read his mind but theres obvious a good chance he doesnt want to be there or toronto wouldnt be listening to any deal
I'm a Kings fan and I really wanted the Kings to go after Joe Johnson during the off season thinking he would have the biggest impact of FA's they could possibly get (LBJ is not on that list unfortunately.) But since the season started we've all seen what Casspi has to offer so if the Kings keep Tyreke, Martin and Casspi as 1-3 they have some combo of Thompson (who I hate) Hawes, Greene, Garcia, picks and several expiring contracts to offer for Bosh. I think the Kings want to make some moves given the movable pieces they have. They have a lot of versatility and I think Martin and Evans could potentially be GREAT given Martin's passiveness and Evans ability to lead this team at 20.
If they trade Hawes and Thompson as part of the deal (and some expiring contracts) they can move Brockman to the 4. I know he isn't much but with those other 4 guys starting do you need more offense? He gets a lot of rebounds per minute and the more he plays the better he gets.
Hard to say what the bench would look like. They could trade a lot of their bench, sergio rodriguez, Armstrong and kenny thomas have expiring contracts, I know they want to move noch too, Garcia is a wild card at this point, Udrih is playing really well, Greene has a lot of potential...I see this team looking very different, very soon...
im curious to see how the martin evans thing works. im not sure it will work as well as the kings want it too because eveans is a scorer and hes best when thats his job and martin plays the position that is best fro evans. now if he could somehow play the sf position or find a big pg who could check sf then i think it would work better. bosh at center is not a good idea if you are trying to eventually get a title
This isn't the old NBA. Bosh at the 5 is fine. Can you name a better available option? Other than Howard most centers now are finesse type players. I think Bosh can hang. I'd only have him starting at the 4 if I had one of the few elite centers in the league which won't happen if you have Bosh, Evans, Martin on the team. Brockman and Casspi bring the toughness they may need, Tyreke is a bull, so while they may not be the bad boys of detroit, they have a nice mix of offensive power and toughness.
Evans, Martin will be interesting but while Evans is ball dominant Martin is not. Evans is exactly what Martin needs because teams won't focus on Martin the way they had. Imagine Evans bringing the ball up and being left open from 15' and out. He drives and the D collapses. He kicks out to Martin for a 3 or passes to a driving Martin. These 2 will get to the line 20 times per game combined. Add in solid wings like Casspi and Garcia to hit the short corner 3...Thats a pretty nice lineup compared to what its been.
If they don't have to give up a 1st round pick they can always draft a center...
I really think the Kings have all the pieces to make this move. I don't know if it will happen, Petrie would want assurance Bosh would stay, but of all the teams listed I think the Kings could be in it.
bosh at the five is cool if you are a non title contending team yeah. or if the five may be undersized and a banger or just concentrates on rebounding defense and blocks. . and you dont average damn near 30ppg and not be somewhat ball dominate. also evans is a combo/sg. not a set up pg whih is when martin is at his best when he has a pg
You can score 30ppg and not be ball dominant when you go to the line as much as Martin. And don't forget Evams is a 20yr old pg averaging 5 assists per game. Getting a slasher/shooter like Martin should increase those numbers. I don't see how you can say Bosh at the 5 is fine if you're not contending for a title...What title contender has a dominant 5???
Who has a dominant center anymore? Magic have Howard and that's pretty much it. And don't say Lakers with Bynum, Gasol is averaging more boards and blocks, and I certainly don't think Bynum is dominant at this point. Duncan on the Spurs but he's been a C/F his whole career and I don't mind Bosh on Duncan.
You think you need a dominant center to be a title contender but it's just not true.
If we trade bosh to the rockets, and somehow can get brooks as a part of it..
