Thread: Danny's injury really limits our off season options.

  1. #1

    Default Danny's injury really limits our off season options.

    My overall hope after seeing PG's growth this year was Danny would come back healthy and boost his trade value going into the draft. Where we might have been able to jump up and find a backup PF and of course resign West. So obviously this won't happen because Danny will have no trade value until the trade deadline next season. So I had this stupid thought rolling around in my head if Danny can't be traded and is going to recover why not trade Paul George. I know it's blasphemy and I'll repeat it's a stupid idea but I followed it Down this path .

    Trade to PHX: PG,Green and our first round pick in mid 20's

    Get from PHX: Scola, there 2 first round picks in this years draft.

    Scola backs up West at the # 4 pick we get Porter and with the Laker's pick we get McCollum.
    We could then go after Reddick with a mid level exp. contract in the 5-6 mil to be our 6th man. The roster would look like this:

    Hibbert/Mahinmi/Plumlee
    West/Scola
    Granger/Porter
    Stephenson/Reddick/Johnson
    Hill/McCollum

    We still need a couple fillers for the league minimum or so for PF and PG.


    I was just following a train of thought not really advocating this move. I'm curious to see if anyone would be tempted. I know trading Paul is a scary idea with all he's done this year, but the thought just struck me.

    Did you just use Paul George to get a backup PF?

    No, I used Gerald Green to get the back up PF. I used Paul to get a top 5 pick and a top 15 pick.

    Would you trade Granger for Marcus Thornton and Chuck Hayes if it was offered during this coming offseason while Granger is still rehabbing his knee?

    Going into the season, the rotation would be:

    PG - Hill/Hansbrough
    SG - Thornton/Stephenson/Johnson
    SF - George/Green
    PF - West (resigned)/Hansbrough/Hayes/Pendregraph
    C - Hibbert/Mahinmi/Plumlee

    Hayes would probably be the 5th big on the team and not much help, but Thornton could be a valuable player. If you don't like Hayes, maybe Outlaw or Fredette could work?

    I doubt they'd give Fredette, I don't want Outlaw, I do like the Chuckwagon.
    It's interesting. Maybe. I'd like Thornton as the 6th man here. Chuck would fit in. I won't check salaries and how it impacts the 2014 summer situation but that's also something to consider.

    In the end, it depends on inside info. If Granger can be back and give 60+ games and ~30 minutes at close to previous level, I'd stick with Granger. It's impossible to decide on that bet without seeing actual medical reports.
