Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Should I drop Ben Gordon right now for Jimmer? I have a feeling he is going to do well! Other interesting free agents: Brandon Knight, Rubio, George Hill, PAUL GEORGE, jordan crawford..
Should I drop gordon or andre miller for one of these??
I like B Knight better than Rubio.
I actually think it's the other way around. Gordon is gonna lose mins to Knight.
They want Stuckey to be there primary SG. so that tells me Gordon will be 6th man if not now then soon. Knight will eventually start PG or may even start tomorrow. With Bynum backing up the PG. Gordon is the odd man out and with the SF position stacked..theres not a lot of room for the Pistons to go small.
Knight will start at PG and his primary competition is Will Bynum. Dumars and Frank clearly want Knight to be the lead playmaker by pushing Stuckey at the 2 where he is more comfortable in. If anything, it marginalizes Ben Gordon.
It's a redundant move. Both will give assists and steals with Miller having an edge in points and %s. Rubio clearly has the upside though. It's hardly an upgrade at this stage but that could change later on when Rubio adjusts to the NBA as the season progresses.
Risky yes. It's hard to say how Miller's mins will be handled. With Afflalo literally avg 36 mins at SG and Lawson may get 32
He may get more mins than we expect and he's played for G Karl already...I can see him getting 25 mins avg maybe more or less for all we know
Rubio is a lot of hype. But he has upside! I say take the gamble.
Watch B Knight as well. I thought teams that skipped him in the draft made a mistake! He def is the 2nd best PG in the draft and was amazing in college.
Anthony Morrow and Jared Bayless are available aswell.
Judging by my roster what do I do? Get gordon back for George? How about getting Jimmer or Rubio for Andre Miller. How about theother guys I listed?
Here is my current roster(just dropped gordon for george, should i undo it?)
Depends on team needs. If you need threes, go Jimmer. If you need assits, Rubio is your guy. If you need points and steals, George Hill. If you want a solid glue-guy who can contribute in every cat, go Paul George. Brandon Knight could be primed for a solid rookie year playing next to Stuckey. Post your team or figure out what your team needs before making an add. Those are all quite solid options.
