    We do all know he averages 10.4 and 7.5 right?
    With Ty Lawson feeding him.

    Can't feed him rebounds... he's averaging 11 per 36 with a career Total Rebound Percentage of 18.1 (better than Boozer, Randolph, Bogut)

    There is a reason he is not playing 36 minutes a game though, he just can't sustain he play for that many minutes

    I love Faried but he was a great fit in Karl's Nuggets teams - a great fit. He won't be as impressive (by a slight margin) on a team that plays at a slower pace and is not in Denver.

    He's super athletic and a great weak side help defender - he would add rim protection, which the Raps actually have very little of (23rd in bpg as a team - Denver's 5th).

    Agreed that I'm not convinced Faried has the smarts to be a Noah-like defensive anchor. He may get there though.

    Amir is still underrated - not untradeable, but underrated.

    Agreed... but 25 per game splitting PF with 2Pat? With the odds favoring him developing? I mean, every advanced stat is pointing to how good this kid is... 19.2 PER for his career, 16 Win Shares already (more WS last year then Amir has ever had)

    I'm not saying he's a world beater. But if giving away amir gets the deal done? For a kid whose trajectory looks like a possible sneak in all-star? You do that deal
