^^ I agree. If he can play for 10-15 games at the end of the season, or, fingers crossed, he even plays a play-off scenario, that will increase his value.
I doubt that anyone is willing to pick both Bargnani and Kleiza in the same deal, but it gives us something to play with.
If we amnesty his a$$, we get nothing out of it.
Agreed. That would be offering up the pu pu platter.
It's too bad Kleiza never developed a consistent NBA 3. He's a beast in international ball, including against the Americans.
Still, I'd rather see him play a few minutes of stretch 4 over Bargs. At least he grabs a few boards and dishes out the occasional hard foul. I also seem to remember Tom Liston showing that his numbers as a 4 weren't nearly as bas as they were when he played SF.
