Blow it up in my mind is saying this isnt working, I'm going a different route...and having monroe and drummond together isn't going to work, yes they are both possibly great players but they are very similar...low post players with poor jumpers.
I said it is a blow it up idea for detroit...meaning if they wanted to try another route this may be a decent option.It isn't a blow up trade though because Drummond and Monroe are the type of players you would want to build around. Trading stuckey, villanueva, prince, maxiell, etc. for draft picks or young guys are blow up trades. Not trading your two best players who are 19 and 22 and on rookie contracts.
Detroit is getting a franchise player in cousins, yes monroe is good but not franchise and yes drummond looks promising butstill dont think he turns into a franchise player. yea yea, Bass is not that good but I said for Boston to throw in a first round pick or even 2 for that matter.
IMO Cousins and bass would have better play then drummond and monroe on the floor together. Bass does well when someone can dominate the paint (aka Cousins). When Bass is playing now, he migth as well be the center bc KG is floatin outside the paint more often then not AND bass isnt a center.....so he isnt being used correctly....I think he would be much better off if he had a real center to play along side....I love KG but he is more of a pf thru and thru
You are just being silly. Drummond and Monroe are the two most valuable players in that entire trade. Thus, it is an absolutely horrible trade for Detroit.
Something like this would seemingly work for all three teams
Boston - Villanueva, Prince, Brooks
Detroit - Garcia, Bass, Evans
Sacramento - Green, Stuckey, Melo, Collins
Boston gets some pretty solid pieces with less long term commitment to make a run this year. Prince would be a great fit at the back-up 3 and Villanueva adds some versatility at the 4. Brooks is a more than capable backup PG. Detroit gets a look at Evans and some solid role players to add to their young guys. Sacramento gets some good value for Evans in Green and Stuckey and a project in Melo.
