Hell no, Don't be stupid Man
I don't think it's "stupid"... in terms of ability to play their assigned position, Lopez is better at his than Dero at his. It's a matter of who has more "upside potential" and what position we need
in the end, we should not give him up and they should not give him up
and especially with his poor play of late (ill be it not that bad) i doubt NJ would consider it
Salaries match and all, but that dosnt mean anything
But hey, and idea is an idea, people said the same thing when we drafted bargnani (example "Not good enough to be in the league, etc.).
Let me put it to you this way, Brook Lopez was ranked 15th in the fantasy rankings this year(one ahead of dwight). Demar -142
I wouldnt do that trade in Fantasy, let alone reality.
Are you kidding me??!! Why in the world would NJ do this? Not a hope in hell... Sorry
Now Demar for Shannon Brown would be a good deal for the Raptors but no way that Kobe will let the Lakers trade Brown at this point.
However, Brown does have a "Player Option" for 2011-12.
He is shooting over 50% on his threes this season in about 4 attempts per game; i.e. 19 minutes.
But who says No to Arenas for Barbosa, Wright and $$$?
i think that derozan's intangibles are more than his skills right now. His love for TO, work ethic, and Youngonez centerpiece status are more than his 14 pts per game....Even if Lopez is talented, Derozan is the raptors main attraction. It should stay that way
Raps seem to want to go with speed, especially with the Barbosa/Bayless combo coming off the bench. Arenas is a risk, but he's been playing relatively well and his knee issues seem to be over. And Arenas, if healthy, is better than Barbosa (people forget this guy was a Top 10 talent 4 yrs ago and teams like Toronto have to take a risk to get something like that). Plus I think Barbosa probably goes after his contract is up.
(BTW, can't they use part of the trade exception to make it work? Or it isn't possible? I get confused.... And personally, I would LOVE to see them go after OJ Mayo, but...)
Hey people....many are displaying the same mo as when playing a video game or play fantasy. Trade him... acquire him...dump him. This is DD's second year for C's sakes. The guy has always been a project and drafted at #9 because of his potential and athleticism. He works hard is open to coaching, likes TO from what I gather and is a team guy. What more do you want especially when the team is in rebuild mode. Changing your players like Boston did doesn't happen all the time. Having an ex Celtic as gm of Minnesota helps for one. DD needs at least another season minimum before one can reasonably assess his value to a still evolving team. Another v. important factor in the proposed trade...a good big man is far more difficult to find than a good SG...and it becomes more rare as the superlative increases. So, with all respect, the NJ Nets would have to be managed by idiots to consider that deal right now unless of course Lopez has a terrible rash we dont know about.
This isnt in a fantasy league thread? Lopez plays a similar game as Bargs so I guess you would move Bargs as well but how does NJ benefit from having DD? I doubt they do. They have a productive 4/5 to replace Lopez? No? So they lose a big, their best player for a 2 guard? This makes no sense.
Can I get Jessica Alba for 50 bucks?
