I think we'd learn to hate IGGY very quickly. Dude's kinda overrated on both ends.

He's certainly an upgrade over Monta on both ends.

It was probably just a late arriving crowd.

I would have loved Iggy.

But that ship has sailed.

I don't see George Karl/Nuggets wanting to dump him after half a season for Monta Ellis.

I may have overreacted a touch there . I think the prospect of having bdub back in the fold got me overexcited . :oops:

PP brought it up in the other thread, but he still has to be moved regardless if he has any value, doesn't he? You really can't have good offers for him at the deadline, keep him, and then have him opt out. I fear we do that though.

I'd be willing to ship him to Toronto for bagged milk. Anything we can get for him is fine with me...we're simply a better team with him off the court

He also mentioned Jeff Green. If the option is Bargnani or Green or let him walk, I'm letting him walk.

The next 30 days will tell us also if Hammond or Kohl are running things. And how emotional Kohl gets should the team start to win consistently and look like a 48 game winner.

If the team is going well, I could see them keeping Monta and then figuring they would use his cap space in the summer to overpay a guy like Mayo or Redick. Or signing him to an extension.

As I said in the other thread, we just have no clue what his real value around the league is. Can he be the central piece to a Bledose trade? Or Iggy? Or is the best he brings in a Jeff Green?

I wouldn't pretend to be confident in my answer either way. Again John Salmons got moved for the equivalent of a first in the 15-22 range, a better player and 10 million of salary relief.

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't add salary unless it's a long-term impact guy coming our way, which I can't see. I'd really like to turn him into a pick or prospect, but as others have said, I just have no idea what his trade value is. I think as long as the offers aren't junk you have to extract value though. The guy isn't opting in.

I suppose for the Eric Bledsoe fans you could do an Ellis for Bledsoe/Caron Butler trade.

Bledsoe hasn't looked very good lately when getting starters minutes though.

If we can get Bledsoe for Monta (don't think we can) that's no brainer.

I'd put more assets into the pot to get that type of thing done.

But this is the question? Does he draw interest for a Bledsoe or a Mayo or Afflalo?

Just no idea how far off we might be on this.

As you read some writers, they still buy into the swag. Perhaps our front office does as well, and the guys I listed above don't make sense to them. Would be stunning. But wouldn't surprise me.
