I would prefer that this thread not degenerate into a discussion about his rebounding numbers - I think that as a board we have to agree to disagree on that one.
However, I am curious as to what you guys make of Troy's value. I think that this season has done wonders for Troy's value but I don't know whether he's "earning his contract" or whether we could ever expect to trade him, especially in this economy. However, Troy has averaged, in February and March, 19pts and 13rebs with 50+FG% 45+3PT% 85+FT%. For comparison's sake, Dirk averages 25 and 8 with significantly worse percentages. Those kind of numbers can't go unnoticed, right? At the same time, he's been steadily improving on the court, making his presence felt beyond his numbers.
I suspect that we'll keep him until the summer before he expires and then try to trade him to a team that can use the financial help and PF-help like we did with Austin Croshere.
Do you guys see any benefit to keeping him longer or less time than that? Does anyone see any role for Troy on this team other than the one he already has (stopgap starting PF)? Any general thoughts?
