Thread: What do you guys think of this trade?

  1. #1

    Default What do you guys think of this trade?

    I was reading on Realgm and saw someone said something about how we could use a legit center who can hit the 20 footer so that got me thinking about this possiable deal between Indiana and Miami:

    Indiana Gets:
    - Michael Doleac

    Miami Gets:
    - Anthony Johnson

    I would only be for this deal first off if we are able to sign Saurnas J. This deal gives us a diffrent type of center because lets all face it, Dale, Jeff, Scot, and David are all pretty similar. Now we would defentily trade either Jeff or Pollard if we did this deal.

    For Miami they get a PG which they really need right now with Keyon Dooling and Damon Jones opting out of there contracts and looking to get raises. Plus with Zo likely to re-sign with Miami they don't need Doleac. Sure there is a chance Zo might not be able to play because of his kidneys but I don't think it is to hard to find a hard nosed defenseive minded center.

    Why? So we can have Eddie Gill as our backup pg? I would much rather have Foster, Dale, and Harrison than Doleac. IMO, we are fine at the center position. We just need someone who can create a shot, and hit a shot.

    Read what I typed.

    I said "I would only be for this deal first off if we are able to sign Saurnas J."

    And yes Doleac can hit a shot from mid range.

    Sure, it would be great to have a centre who can consistently hit the mid-range jumper.

    But it would also be nice if that guy could actually rebound, block shots, etc. In other words, a big NO to Doleac.

    We need more PG depth alot more than we need a C who can hit from midrange.

    AJ was one of our most consistant players in the 2nd half of the season. If we sign Sarunas then I think we would be able to cover the PG spot well if Tins goes down if SJ and AJ share the mins.

    Apart from the starters, I would say that AJ is one of our least expendable players.

    I don't think of Doleac as a true center. My impression of him is that he's soft inside, a poor rebounder and shots jumpshots. There are plenty of big men who can do what Doleac does.

    he is a poor man's Brad Miller. I would not mind having him if we could trade Eddie Gill for him instead of AJ.

    Yeah, Mickey D isn't very good. I'd rather have our centers.

    Is there a bigger superlative than homeless? If there is that is what Michael Doleac is.

    I agree with you signature 100%. Not to bring it up for the 56734592066th time but Donnie denied the Pacers a championship last year by not signing Brad Miller. They would have beaten Detroit and a dysfunctional Laker team with Brad's outside shooting. He could easily have traded Brad in couple of years. I am just ranting!

    Keep telling yourself that. I'm sure Donnie does.

    When it's not Bender he's thinking about.

    When Brad stays healthy for an entire year, especially after the all-star break, you'll have an argument. Until then you can keep playing with your signature to suit your fancy.

    If those 50 games came after the all-star break, then I'd agree with you. Otherwise, they don't mean a thing.

    Would this be the all-star break that he has on more than one occasion been busy playing a game in???

    He was injured this year but wasn't he fine in last year's playoffs when they lost to Minnesota?

    Was he injured down the stretch these past two seasons? Did he play limited minutes in the first two games against Seattle in this year's playoffs, which they lost? Has he ever led a team out of the 2nd round? Are you going to keep bringing up Brad ad nauseum?
