That scares me. I like the situations where we can bring in Monta as a SG and Move Paul over to the 3. I don't worry about Monta guarding some of our shooting guards in the east, I do worry about Rondo, Rose, Irving and D-Will.
But, I do think Monta could be a good asset either way, I am just on the sense about him at the point.
We need a 3rd team for your suggested trade to work in my opinion, because the Warriors do not need a PG/PF. Maybe Boston getting our assets and shipping Pierce to GSW.
Monta is a really good player, but he's not a natural point guard. He's a good scorer but he's not a playmaker. Being a point guard isn't about APG, it's about court vision and the ability to run the offense.
Monta can only start as point guard in my opinion if he has sized guys that can run the offense with him. Guys like Joe Johnson, Iggy, LBJ, Evans. This way he doesn't have the burden of playing a true point guard and not be a defensive liability.
The new lineup you suggested has good players, but I don't know how well they are going to work together - There's 1 guy who isn't really a point guard and 4 guys who have about 50% chance of turning the ball over when they start dribbling.
So, Overall, I don't think it's a bad trade, but I do think we're not good trading partners with GSW.
Even without having a true point guard you stil would have to pull the trigger on this trade. You would have Danny, and PG that could be a lot of scoring potential.
I would do the trade in a second and I like DC as our PG and really like Hans off the bench. Talent wise you'd have to do this trade. Monte could be traded later for something pretty good if he doesn't work out at PG.
The real question is why in the world would GS do this. They'd have to be morons to do this trade.
They already have a really good PG in Curry. DC and Curry is a way worse and a smaller back court than what they already have.
They already have David Lee, he's a lot better than Hans. GS lacks size as it is and this makes them even smaller.
The pick from us would not be that great if we maintain our good record.
"Free From The JOB Reign Of Error"
1) No true PG (unless you like Ellis as a PG)
2) A really expensive backup Center
Imagine Dwight Howard in Golden State. Just saying.
Seems like the biggest concerns about Monta are (a) hes not a true point guard and (b) would he be a defensive laibilty.
Well if you ask me, we dont have a true point guard right now anyway and Monta is way better that both DC and Hill.
As for him being a defensive laibility, well we've got quite a few wings who can defend the likes of Rose and Rondo while Monta can continue to guard 2's if thats the case. Frankly I think Monta would be fine guarding 1's.
Maybe I should stop campaigning for Monta but I just plain like the guys game. He is a relentless attacker ie Rose, Westbrook. When he turns the corner on you its over. He can take point guards down low and abuse them (see George Hill) ie Rod Strickland, Mark Jackson and the guy is one of the most dangerous 1 on 1 scorers in the league.
If you can honestly say your heart wasn't jumping out of your chest when Monta was setting up that last iso against Hill then you must have novocain in your veins.
Exactly what LA said
We dont have a true pg right now so I dont see a big problem
Stop quoting people I have on ignore!
I only catagorized them as bench players because GSW already have a PG and PF better than them. So they'd strengthen their bench, add another 1st rounder to their own, pretty much guaranteed lottery, pick and open up a ton of capsace.
Well, Collison is young, but not really promising. Tyler is in his prime, but will just be their 6th man. Even if the value is right (could be), there's still the "need" thing.
And one more thing, after checking, we can't absorb that much salary, it would put us over the cap. (check ESPN trade machine)
I like your trade idea but I just don't think there's a way to really get it right.
Yeah you would have to give more and probably find a 3rd team, GS doesn't need any more point guards.
Maybe a three team deal with Utah?
