    Default Flynn 4 Douglas

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/ba...for_jonny.html

    What do you think about trading the Number 6 Pick for the 29th pick of the 2009 draft?

    Who do you guys like more?

    I dislike both of them equally both are bad basketball players IMO. Flynn should of went in the 20s in 09 but had a late surge. I wouldn't of drafted him until the 20s if i was a gm.

    It was that 6 OT game.

    This deal suggests the talks with the Pacers were probably Rush/Price/15th for Douglas.

    That is why he went so early that stupid game he was so overrated. I stayed up until like 3am watching that live it was pretty epic. But Jflynn is like 5'10 just stupid to draft a pg that small that high. Especially after picking Rubio the pick before kahn deserves a for that

    That game still makes me sick.

    I don't think I actually could watch it again.

    But yea, between the hype of that game and his athleticism, that boosted his stock. I give players a year or two after injuries before I declare they suck though. He wasn't bad his rookie season. Better than the group of about ten pretty good point guards from that year's draft..probably not. I agree though. Definitely picked too soon.

    At least Douglas is a really good defender on the ball. He's one of the better players in the league at that. His shot selection however is horrible. If he had good shot selection he'd be a valuable player.

    Still, I think this is a good deal for Minnesota as they at least get an upgrade in a much needed area. I never understood the love for Flynn. He looked like a poor man's TJ Ford with less ability.

    He's a good shooter when spotting up, but he has a very nasty habit of pulling up for threes in transition with nobody to get to the rebound. I'd estimate that he'd be a 40%+ guy from three if he didn't take dumb shots.

    I like this for the Knicks actually. It could be a potential steal. Granted, Flynn hasn't been successful thus far in the league, but he's got upside and perhaps a change a scenery (going back to his homestate, at that) is what he needs.

    Minnesota wants to move Flynn because they signed Rubio and they have a glut at point guard

    NY wants to upgrade their backup point guard by trading Douglas for Flynn

    How does this make sense for Minnesota?

    More delusional fantasy by NY writers grasping at straws because they have no worthwhile assets they can trade because Dolan got fleeced by Denver in the Melo trade!

    And AJ Price doesn't?

    The Pacers could trade Price for Douglas and I think the Pacers would get the slightly better end of the deal.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.
