    Default Grantand's NBA trade value top 50

    Funny read but it got me thinking. Should AB be on this list? All of the top 20 scorers are on it (except #6...AB). What do you think? I don't think he makes the most valuable list just because a lot of people really want him traded (here's looking at you Tim W). But wouldn't some teams really value this guy? At least once they failed to get the other 49?

    LOL Bargnani is #7 Dude.


    EDIT : Bargnani is listed as an honorable mention.

    1.Here's the honorable honorable mention: Mike Conley (what were the odds Conley would be a better pro career than Greg Oden in 2007?); Brandon Jennings and Jrue Holiday (both young and hungry); DeAndre Jordan and Omer Asik (you always need centers); and Granger and Andrea Bargnani (good starters getting paid like signature guys

    Bargnani's been injured all year. Why the hell would he have ANY trade value?

    If he were playing all year, he'd be in there I'm sure.

    Help me here. I think I provided the right link but I can't find that quote anywhere. If you're right, I have to unsend the rant I sent to Simmons

    Eric Gordon (2 games) and Brook Lopez (5 games) are in. Admittedly, bargnani may not be exactly at their level but a full season does not seem to be a prerequisite. Not being a fanboy, just tossing it out for discussion.

    Bill Simmons slights the Raps? No news here.

    Dude is a shithead. How many of his articles involve him taking back a ludicrous statement that he has since changed his mind about? It seems like that happens in every one i've ever read. He deals only in hyperbole and it gets old really fast

    Great point. Didn't read the list that thoroughly.
    I would actually argue that Bargnani should be around the same level as Lopez.

    He's a self admitted homer, but Pierce for George and it being a good deal for both teams is pretty stupid

    Brook Lopez rebounding statistics are awful this year. Yes, it's a tiny sample size (5 games) but considering his offensive statistics are in line with his typical production, it's ... worrisome.

    I think he would make a very good PF next to Dwight Howard, a scenario which may happen next season.

    Lopez isn't in the top 50 guys, just look at the article for more than 10 seconds...

    I was lied to?! Damnit.

    I looked through it initially, but not looking for anyone in particular.
    Because its Grantland ... and I don't even know what that is. haha

    Brook is in the honorable mentions. I was including that group as well as AB didn't make the cut there either. That took me at least 11seconds to see

    Part 1.

    Far right hand column, scroll down about 1/5-1/4 of the page.

    The list is fair for the most part and I have no problems with Bargnani being left out. Since the salaries were taken into account, they decided Bargnani is overpaid for his skill-set.

    the article is current trade value, not overall quality assessments. bargs isn't higher because no play-off bound team would trade for someone that's been injured all year, the raptors aren't going to dump him just to get rid of salary and maybe grab a pick, and he plays a position that's seen a glut of emerging all-star talent in the last 2-3 years. assuming the raptors were playoff-bound, or he was healthy enough to put a playoff team over the edge, the list would be different.

    Ahhhhhh. Peace at last. I found it. The problem was that I was reading it on an iPad and didn't see the references. My humble pie and apologies for starting this thread.
