What the deuce.
So we give up a starter, and two pretty talented bench guys, one of whom is on a rookie contract and shows a load of potential for being a starter in the nba. Plus we give up another project 7 footer.
In return we get a reasonable defender that can't do much else, a vet that isn't getting minutes on a pretty mediocre team, and a bench big that's grabbing the astonishing stats of 8 points 7 rebounds a game.
If milwaukee called Danny with that proposal he'd start laughing after he cleaned up his own vomit.
Brandon Bass is loosely
a starter here and almost entirely because we don't have a better option. As you may have seen Sully has started a few times already this year which doesn't inspire much confidence in Bass.
I think the only reason I like this trade is because I am pretty high on LRMM. Durant is quoted as saying he's a top NBA defender at the SF position and coming from the scoring champ that is saying something.
Sanders for Melo is a good deal because Sanders can actually play NBA ball now and we're in a win-now mode.
Bass for Gooden is pretty straight forward. We get a little rebounding and physicality and give up some percentages and youth. Also Gooden is up for trade and thusly not a part of the rotation. It's not his play, it's the Bucks organization trying to develop their youth.
Sully is probably the thing that stops be from doing this trade, if anything.
I think this trade does give away some of the future. Including Sully and moving Green before he gets his feet under him is a huge gamble but this trade makes us a better defensive team immediately and I'm 50/50 on whether I'd do it after 24 hrs and a good nights rest
Here is another trade that works:
The reason I put this up is that it gives our team a better package in return for pretty much all of our youth/depth.
We'd have to sign KMart or some serviceable C prospect but it's a team swap from NBA2K13 that will never happen in the NBA. I think the closest we will see was what the Magic did a few years back moving their core team for packages from Phoenix and Washington.
