Thread: Gilbert Arenas anyone?

  1. #1

    Default Gilbert Arenas anyone?

    Washington now has Wall, Arenas and Hinrich at PG. It's quite possible that they will move one and because of Arenas recent troubles, I think they would likely be willing to trade him. So the question is would you want to make a play for him? I know he has baggage but he is a very good point guard. He would make a major impact IMO.

    Championship Quality Team?

    Arenas
    George
    Granger
    ??? PF we make another trade for or get in 2011
    Hibbert

    A D league championship team? Possibly. An NBA Championship (Insert 50 smiling and driving away).

    Well, there's that. Plus, who knows if he will be eligible for work release.

    No thank you.

    We've already had players who were a bit trigger happy in the pat. Don't need any more.

    How is paying Hinrich 9 million bucks to dribble in circles better than paying TJ Ford 8.5 million to miss shots?

    I don't care for Hinrich the distributor so much as what Hinrich can do as a role player. I'd want him for his three-point shooting for when defenders crowd Danny and Roy as well as what he can do on defense. I think we'd get more value out of Hinrich's 9 million than Ford's 8.5 million.

    A couple of thoughts. One, I don't want to pay 9 million to a role player. Two, Hinrich's contract has two years left compared to Ford's one.
