Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Boozer won't be traded. That's the problem. He's much more of an amnesty candidate than a trade candidate. And Noah is most likely not going anywhere. My only hope is an injury or that Thibs just says "screw it" and throws Gibson out there while holding out Boozer a lot... or benching him more often... but even then, I'm ok with Gibson off the bench

If you're going for gold, and willing to take the big risk, then I'd take the Hayward side. Otherwise I'd stick with what you got. Just keep in mind that Hayward will probably get in his groove again, and could potentially give you first round value... although that's far from guaranteed.

It won't work. Gotta give better players than that... especially if you're making people drop players.

Gibson is the safest option here. Faried is a bit hot right now, but Gibson is more well-rounded and in no real danger of playing too few minutes.
On the surface it looks fair, if not more than fair. However, I'm skeptical about giving up Curry (who blows both Westbrook and George out of the water), and wary of Westbrook's injury. As well, the stats don't seem to do it justice. Mix that with how good Gibson has been, and his massive upside, and I feel like I have to reject. Or am I being crazy?
