    Default Danny G getting some love (The Granger merged thread)

    It's amazing to me how much that has changed in the last year.

    I'll start with the givens.

    Lebron
    Kobe

    Then the next tier of givens

    Chris Paul
    Dwight Howard
    Dwayne Wade
    Chris Bosh

    Who else or is this even correct?

    What Amare Stoudamire? Deron Williams? Al Jefferson? for young guys.

    What about Nash, Pierce, Garnett, Duncan for longer established guys?

    You are right that those players are better than Danny, at least right now, but there's no one I would trade Danny for.

    I've watched Danny grow going on four years now and that in itself is enjoyable. I want to see what he becomes. Plus him being my favorite would be like trading one of my children. Nope, I wouldn't trade him period.

    I'd also put Garnett and Duncan on that list of players still better than him.

    I wonder how this thread will go after a few posters have their way in here....

    As for the topic at hand.... I would have a hard time trading him right now for a guy that is older. This team is no where close to being able to use a superstar to get any usefulness out of him.

    I just hope Danny isn't peaking while we don't have talent to stick around him.

    I would not trade him for Bosh - never been that impressed by him. The others on your list look good. Might consider Deron Williams, Stoudamore. Nash, Pierce garnett, TD are too old - unless we were in a position to win now

    Most definitely Deron Williams but I would push Utah for a little bit more.

    I probably would not trade him for Amare. Definitely not Bosh. And no one significantly older, either.

    Basically, I wouldn't trade Danny unless it brought back an elite, young PG. But PG is a much more important position than SF so no one is going to trade a Deron Williams type talent for Danny even though Danny is probably a better player, his position is less valued.
    Already stoked for 2013-2014.

    How is Kobe a given? He's 30 and is starting to slump. I wouldn't trade Danny for Kobe. The only players i'd trade Danny for are:

    LeBron
    Chris Paul
    Dwight Howard

    Probably just Paul or Howard. I'd say Lebron but he'd be gone in 2010. I don't know if I'd trade him at all though. He's a great fit here.

    Not considering contracts, I'd trade him for CP3, Howard, Kobe, LJ, and Amare. I'd also take a combination of Blazers for him such as Roy, Aldridge, Batum, Fernandez,or Oden (I've really enjoyed watching them this year and think they will be great in a few seasons). As for Kobe getting older and less productive, he can still help bring in a strong supporting cast.

    I really think it is great that Danny signed his extension and made a long term commitment to the team. The fact that he wants to be here makes me want to keep him here over most superstars including any of the Celtics, Wade, D Williams, etc.

    I would trade him for amare right now.

    That would give us the athletic big we are looking for. While moving Dun to SF and Quis to SG. That would improve our defense and offense at pf and sg while keeping close to the same output at SF.

    What we would be losing is output from a 6th man. But over the next 2 seasons BRUSH will provide that.

    I wouldn't trade him for anybody. I couldn't see him on another team, he is now the face of the franchise we have needed since Reggie left. I'd stay loyal to Danny.

    That wasn't even my post but I'd trade him for Devin Harris in a heartbeat. Chauncey Billups only if age were not a factor.

    Kobe is the best player on the Olympic team. He has at least five great years left. Granger is not a guarantee to be a great player for the next five years as he hasn't proved himself to be a top player over one full season yet and has yet to be the best player on a winning team.

    Well my list is substantially longer but anyone leaving off Chris Paul is nuts. Those three are absolute musts.

    But the list is moot.

    I don't know why you guys are complaining about someone elses list, it's a personal list of who they would trade Danny for.
