    Default Mobley/Cato might be moved after T-Mac trade

    http://www.floridatoday.com/!NEWSROOM/sportstoryS0628MAGIC.htm

    "Francis is the centerpiece of a deal that would involve the Magic also getting shooting guard Cuttino Mobley and center Kelvin Cato. The Magic would be giving up McGrady, Juwan Howard, Tyronn Lue and Reece Gaines. Francis' agent, Jeff Fried, told FLORIDA TODAY that the Magic want to keep Francis as their point guard. But Mobley and Cato could be moved in other trades once they reach Orlando."

    +++++++++++++

    Perhaps we can then pick up Mobley and/or Cato. I would do Harrington for Mobley - would Orlando?

    I was initially for that idea, but now that we drafted Harrison, i don't think we need Cato. Unless they want to exchange Pollard and Cato
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Hmm.... at the right price, getting those two could pretty much set our roster.

    I'd rather have Flip Murry than Mobley.

    Mobley is a much better defensive player than Murray. for that reason I would rather have Mobley without question

    However, Flip had only one good year. There is no guarentee that he will be good this year too. Of course, I'm not saying that he won't. But it is still taking a chance.

    Hmmm, are you speaking of Mobley or Dampier? (Jez jerkin' yer chain).

    I'm ALL for getting Cato, have been for a couple of years. I never really paid much attention to Cat tho (hmm Cat and Cato, gotta be able to make SOMETHING outta that).

    Flip cant shoot. Well his shot is decent but flat as hell. When he misses he misses UGLY. And from 3 point range he borders on bad. Flip cant defend. Flip can pass but does not like to. The only knock against Mobley is really that he is small for a 2 guard. But he is still bigger than flip.

    Flip is a nice player, but he will not and never should start on any decent NBA team barring injury, much like last year.

    Mobley is a much better defensive player than Murray. for that reason I would rather have Mobley without question.
    Flip's a young guy, UB, and I'm of the mindset that given the proper system, a player can improve their defensive skills. Plus the Western conference doesn't/hasn't emphasized defense, so I don't think you can properly gauge a young player coming out of there.

    Yeah, I'd definitely take Cat over Flip. And Flip's a Portsmouth guy, so that's not easy for me to say.

    I think Dampier fits that category very well

    I think Cuttino would be good.

    the talk on the boards in Houston & Orlando is they go to GS for J-Rich ++

    I seriously doubt that

    I actually like doing Al and Polly for Cato/Mobley Better than giving up all that we would have to for TMac. They would be a perfect fit here. Please Larry do it! Let me see if i can work it out. Maybe even a three way?

    Mobley would be my second choice. I still have concerns about his height. I would like to have a taller guard than Tinsely or Jones when Reggie leaves.

    My first choice is Q Richardson. If we made a trade with the clippers I'd have a reason to watch their games again.

    I want no part of Flip. A good defender in a good system is still better than a bad defender in a good system.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    Only problem is who does Orlando start at the two? Would it be like this?
    Pollard or Declerq
    Dwight Howard
    Al Harrington
    Grant Hill
    Steve Francis

    or this
    Pollard or Declerq
    Harrington
    Gooden
    Hill
    Francis

    and what if Hill can't actually play?

    I dont know if I'm as high on Cato as everyone else here. I dont' know much about him, but how is he that much better than say Pollard? I understand that Cato is probably a better shot blocker, but is he that much better than how pollard looked when he was on sactown?

    Mobley is listed as 6'4" and Q is listed as 6'5" -- I'd rather have Mobley's defense, 3pt % and veteran experience over a 1" height difference, personally.

    Im not sure who of the two I would rather have (Q-Rich or Cat), rightnow Mobley has the upperhand, but Richartson is younger and has a lot of uspide too.
