And as far as trading for Hump, yeah we get a double double guy, but he'd back up West AND we lose a 20pt/gm scorer. Whether you like Danny or not he's easily our most consistent perimeter threat.
I'd just hate to trade him for scraps if we don't have to.
Also it's not that easy to average 18-20 ppg. Yes i agree that SOMEONE has to score, but averaging 18-20 pts on a playoff team (5th best record i do believe) isnt easily replacable. Danny gets the other teams best perimiter defender every game. He's a good scorer, and has been through most of his career.
Obviously with a lot of "superteams" being created he was the 3rd or 4th best, but that's on the best teams in the league.
Also, I have only suggested a trade for EJ acouple times ever, so what you just said is outlandish and just not true!
Frank Vogel says "Killer instinct, start strong, build a lead and then step on their throats."
I'm going to guess that the FO will continue to simply "gauge" interest in DG to see what they can get for him ( until this trade deadline ). Unless they get an offer that they cannot refuse....which I don't think is likely ( IMHO, Granger is worth more to us than he is to other Teams )....I don't think that they will really consider moving him until the 2013-2014 Offseason when he's an Expiring Contract.
I don't see the FO moving him at the 2013-2014 trade Deadline since making a major move like moving a key Player like Granger isn't good for a Playoff run.
The only way I can see them giving him an extension ( to keep him long term ) is IF we make it to the ECF this upcoming season AND give the Heat a real run for their $$$$....but I don't see that happening. Barring that from happening and given that he'll be a UFA after his current contract is up after the 2013-2014 season...I can see the FO moving him during the summer of 2013 so that they don't lose him for nothing while making room in the SalaryCap in the 2013-2014 offseason to address our PF rotation ( since West will likely be gone ). Hopefully, PG is ready to step up and take over by than so that Granger becomes expendable.

This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.
Obviously Danny isn't going to finish his career here with PG lurking in the shadows. Donnie is back and KP is on his side. I think it's a foregone conclusion that Danny will be gone at some point. That may depend how well Paul starts off this season. If he has a strong start it will make it easier for the FO to pull the trigger and trade Danny. I just hope we can get a quality athletic PF for him. Which I believe we could. Then sign West to another deal so he can come off the bench and trade tyler.

But you calling someone a troll is just peachy keen isn't it. I don't know how many post you have made about Gordon but I have seen hundreds of them here and they are just as silly as yours. You can't get it that the Pacers are not going to give up the ranch for someone who is so frail that he can never play a full season. I keep pointing that fact out to you and you just irnore it. There is a habit on the forum of people calling someone a troll when they disagree with them and can't make a sensible argument for what they have to say. You certainly fall within that catagory. Now, say whatever you want and shout to the world how much you want Gordon, I am done with this for now.... ...
Teams with bad management are constantly "rebuilding." The Knicks are always rebuilding. The Timberwolves are always rebuilding. The Clippers have been rebuilding for 25 years. Atlanta rebuilds often. It is the same in every sport. The haves keep on winning and the havenots keep on rebuilding...... ...

I'm no Granger fan and I would like to see him traded for good value. But even I will admit he is clearly the #2 player on this team...and he's the #1 player on offense. I like George Hill, but nobody else comes close to Danny's ability to convert shots in tough games while being defended.
P.S. The Hawks just had the same core for years, so I don't think of them as constantly rebuilding. So maybe we just have a different idea of what rebuilding means.
