ESPN Trade machine wasn't working but the salaries match. I think.
The trade is Rudy Fernandez (1.2M) + Joel Pryzbilla (7.4M) + Jerryd Bayless (2.3M) for Marcus Banks (4.9M) + Sonny Weems (0.8M) + Jarrett Jack (4.6M).
So for us we get a great shooter, decent defender and an overall pretty good and young player in Rudy. Who can defend the perimeter, which no other raptor can. He can hit shots from everywhere, can dunk. Is fast and pretty good on both sides of the court.
We also get Pryzbilla who is a great defender and a great rebounder which we need desperately. He is also a pretty good shot blocker and can start allowing us to put Bargs at the 4, but he can also be a bench player and still be incredibly productive.
Bayless was put in the trade because 1. We need a point guard 2. He is young and will improve and 3. I needed him to even the salaries.
Portland does the trade because they get rid of Rudy who clearly wants to leave. They also get a younger PG in Jack to play behind Andre Miller who is aging... He is faster and better and will help in the fast offence in Portland. Weems sweetens the deal for Portland because he is young and full of potential, and Portland is great at using potential in players and turning them into a good players. Banks is a decent player.
Any ideas? Anything you would want to change? And do you think this trade is possible?
