This is my first thread of the 2010-2011 season, so i'm a bit rusty. Also I looked for a site that showed NBA Salaries by position but didn't really find anything, if someone has a good site please let me know. Okay on to the post...
I haven't watched a lot of Raptors games this year and since I don't have cable, when I am going to watch one I usually go to my friends place and we watch the game together. Neither one of us are Bargs fans and given the opportunity I think we would both trade him. However, my friend contends that Bargs lack of defense and hefty contract make him UNTRADEABLE. This seems a bit on the extreme side to me. Surely a 7footer who can score from anywhere has some value? I poised this question to my friend who argued that GMs today use all kinds of fancy metrics and none are stupid enough bring him on. My friend is known to exaggerate but i got me thinking. What is Bargnani's market value?
Here's Bargnani's remaining contract according to hoopdata
8.5m This year
11.5m 2014-2015 (player option)
for a grand total of 41 million.
Obviously, he is not going to be traded anytime soon (even if we were allowed to) but I'd like to get a sense of whether he would be in demand if available. I'm not trying to start a trade bargs thread, more just wondering if other GM's would want him. Your thoughts?
