"Evans’ salary is relatively small, which makes it tough for the Sonics to get a quality player in return. They are seeking a backup point guard, particularly after Ronald Murray has proven he is incapable of playing that position effectively on a consistent basis."



He is Seattles best rebounder per minute but has lost his place since Bob Hill became coach.

He's young, his numbers are better than Kwame Brown's, he's a PF and a fine defender, his salary is to come off the books after this season.

Why would they give him for Eddie Gill?

It says they are looking for a backup point guard and salaries should be close. I haven't looked though.

You could insert AJ here and make me very happy. I think he would help us now and we need help now. So it would be a good thing. :shrug:

Well, salaries do match, but...

Nobody gives good young cheap PFs for Gill.

Yeah, I don't see Eddie Gill getting that done. They probably want a "decent" backup PG. AJ would probably be what they are looking for, but we are in no position to give him up.

Instead, how about AJ for Evans and Murray?

The latest rumor is a possible trade of Evans and Murray for Marcus Banks - I think AJ is a better backup than Banks.

He is. AJ for Evans and filler would be a good deal.

Umm, if we trade AJ, we would have to use Eddie Gill. :suicide:

How about Tins for Evans and Murray.

Both Reggie Evans and Flip Murray signed 1-year contracts which makes them untradable, I believe.

Wouldn't Tins BYC actually help get closer to Evan's low contract?

recap.

When a restricted FA signs a 1-year tender offer from its team (which Murray and Evans both did), they cannot be traded. I'm pretty sure that's the rule.

A BYC player is almost impossible to trade, but its possible. a 1-year tender player can't be traded at all.

I believe this is so teams can't keep a restricted FA around for 1 more year for the sole purpose of trading him.

My understanding is that they aren't untradable, but 1) would have to agree to the trade, and 2) would lose their Bird rights.

Doesn't sound very conducive to a trade, true, but there's a lot of trade speculation going around about them both so presumably all parties would be amenable to getting a trade done.

Oh yeah, that's it.

They have built-in no-trade clauses, and they get penalized if they waive them.

I was trying to figure out what the exact rule was.
