Tyreke Evans for Klay Thompson 

Post#1 » by turk3d » Sat Nov 10, 2012 5:33 pm

Evans a better fit with Curry, Thompson a better fit with Thomas. Improves both backcourts. Can move Thornton to starting 2 guard and bring Thompson off the bench. Tyreke brings more balance to Warriors backcourt and improves defense.

Edited:
Brandan Rush + Klay Thompson for Tyreke Evans + Tyler Honeycutt + #2 pick

The general premise of this swap could work, but Sacramento would definitely need to add value since Thompson has the better contract. I have no idea what GS would be interested in from Sacramento. Maybe their 1st with a little protection?

I agree that the fit is better, but I'm surprised that Warriors feel that the value is there. Especially since Evans is due to become a free agent, which is only going to make GSW's tax concerns next year all that much more dire.

Why turk? Thompson looks great ...cerebral dead eye shooter with good size and ok defense. Evans alonbe isnt enough value if im a warrior fan.

I can only speak for myself here, but I don't think the value is there (or even close really). Klay is in his second year and has already shown that he's much more conducive to playing winning basketball. Plus his contract situation is much better.

I would want some substantial sweetener coming from Sacramento before I considered an Evans for Klay swap.

Since Tyreke is due for an extension, Kings would have to take back a contract.

Reke and Garcia(team option next year) & a 2nd for Klay and Jefferson?

Unfortunately Cavs have the rights for a Kings' future first because of the Hickson trade so we can't trade another one. And the 2nd rounder will surely be in the 30s.

If I recall correctly, Warriors did offer Ellis for Tyreke. So there still might be interest in pairing Reke with Curry

GSW doesn't want Evans. He'll be asking for a substantial pay raise and he's just not worth the money his agent will be asking for. He's still a terrible perimeter shooter and is a ball dominant guard that doesn't know how to play effective team basketball.

Thompson and Curry are too much alike. Good shooters but not so good defenders (Klay is probably an average defender and Curry below average). Evans is a way better defender at guard, and would give the Warriors someone who can drive to the basket and score the ball. This trade would bring better balance to the Warriors I believe. Not sure what should be the actual trade and open to suggestions.

Uhmm suggestion is not to trade for the worse player.. Especially one who is looking for a pay raise, doesn't have a real position since he cant shoot and needs to have ball in his hands. That is back to bad basketball, but turk thats what ur used too, so i see ur logic. I dont agree, neither do other warrior fans.

You keep the longer guard, who can shoot, play better defense and guess what, us smart and diesnt need the ball for 20sec every set.

Reke is awful. Let some other team take him on and thompson can drive, he just hasnt been asked to

What year is this? Evans isn't special anymore.

Agree that it would improve both teams but for all the above reasons I can see Sac having to eat a contract like Beans (for perhaps Garcia and filler?) to make this work.

Kyle Lowry got his outside shot when he was 25 after working on his shot very hard every summer. By all accounts this offseason was the first time Evans worked hard on improving outside shot. Evans is a good FT shooter just like Lowry.
Due to contract year Tyreke started to play defense every night and it shows.
Now how Thompson projects outside of shooting. As great a shooter and off-the-ball player as he is what else does he bring to the table?
For all the flaws in Evans' game right now it feels like everybody still expects him to still get close to max. I mean he's 12p+6r+3a player and not much better than Stuckey according to many people here.
Still Petrie loves those cute pure shooters and Maloofs adore cheap contracts so they would probably be all over this deal and throw a lot more in if they could - pick is locked after Hickson deal. From me "hell, no".

He's not better then Stuckey at all really, no need to make it sound so ironic.

Lowry was a good player before he worked on his shot. Many of us here wondered aloud whether Memphis should have kept him over Conley years ago.

All I'm saying at 4 million per Kings are keeping Reke.
