If there is a cap hold, which there is, then it can be traded. Pretty sure.
DoNDaDDa, when the draft took place few years back, nobody knew how good would Graham or Granger be. Granger was passed by many teams because there Granger had an injury and Raptors weren't willing to take risk on. To came out years after draft and point the obvious is pointless. Kobe was drafted late, Darko was drafted ahead of Wade/Carmelo/Bosh and so on. Now regarding Andrea vs Roy, is a different story. Of course Raptors could go for Roy but they choose to go with a 7 feet long center who showed the promises to be Dirk 2.0 and a possible mismatch nightmare for the opposite team. The jury is still out, as a Center takes longer to develop then a SG/SF. Let's see how Andrea will perform this year, before calling him a bust.
TIm/Appollo- do you think Hibbert and Bargs could co-exist, playing the 5 and 4 respectively?
hibbert can play he just never got minutes in indy, he would be a good pick up, hes young and cheep, if they give us a second round pick too this deal would be legit
Right now if Calderon were sold for a good center player defensively that we should not tap into the team because after Belinelli jack is the one that has as dribbling and passing trio of 3. Barbosa is a player very fast penetration and attack by unpredictability
hibbert isnt that bad he's young still and cheap, he can block shots finish around the rim, he just never really got good minutes in indy. he was the second best big when oden was draftted, hes a good pick up and we get rid of jose contract thats good enough for me, BC needs to get like a second round pick as well though at least.
I don't see Hibbert for calderon as a trade. Maybe Foster for Calderon would match up better salary wise. 7 million too 9 million? We need someone to match up against big bodies like shaq, dwight, bynum, oden etc.. So really all you need is someone to play 15-18 minutes a night against those big bodies and also to provide interior toughness on both ends of the floor. This would allow bargni to slip too the 4 against big teams.Dorsey's to short to match up against the big 7 footers.
Jamal Tinsley contract at 5.5 million for year (Cap hit)
2nd round pick
1st round pick(Toronto's 2011)
1st round pick(Maimi's 2011)
Kinda similar deal 2 what jazz offered for Al Jefferson...picks...but they gave minnesota TPE...Indiana is looking 2 rebuild and they want 2 shed there contracts...Danny has 4 years left..but they don't see him as player 2 build around...
Yes calderon has 3 years left...but they love his character and attitude for young players.
