This. As it is right now, I don't think many Wolves fans would do a straight Williams for Reddick swap due to the threat of Reddick walking in the off-season. Adding in Barea, who has had occasional excellent games for us, and Turk kills the deal completely.

If we're taking back Turkey Glue's contract, then I'd demand Afflalo, to switch out Barea for Ridnour, and some kind of pick swap included.

I wouldn't give up more then Luke for a possible rental, no way Taylor lets Kahn move DWill for a rental player. Not going to happen...
Moving AK47 for Gay is not going to happen either. Gay sucks in the playoffs, and is overpaid, both of those are well known GM facts, which is why Memphis wants to move him.

He plays like Beas in the playoffs, super inefficient. Per 14.6

Anything that makes it more difficult for us to re-sign Pekovic does not make sense to me.

Plus, like others have said, AK's defense/intangibles are more important than what Gay could bring us.


Yeah to me the math is off if you say: MN + Gay = MN - AK and Pek (next season)

I would be WAY more interested in signing Tony Allen away from them in the offseason. Glen says he will go into the luxury tax.

Ricky/JJ (or Luke)
Tony Allen/Shved
AK/draft pick/Nemanja (or preferably Bud if we can re-sign him for cheap enough)
Love/Williams/Cunningham
Pek/Cunningham/Stiemsma

To me that is a team we could actually afford and that and wouldn't require us to break up our core. We would probably have to go right up to the luxury threshold to sign that team depending on who we keep and who gets jettisoned.

Also why would we want to help Memphis get under the tax anyways? I'd rather see that team have to break it up and hurt what a nice thing they have going.

It would hurt Min resigning Pek getting Turk back, but if they find a way to make it work... I think everybody wins!


I'm certainly in the minority here, but I don't even want to trade Derrick for JJ straight up considering he can walk, so I don't think this value is as strong as you'd think. Also I think the fact that ORL says it will take more than Williams doesn't mean there is any way we would pay more than that. It just sounds as if your GM would want more, doesn't mean we were/are contemplating offering more than DW. I sure hope we aren't.

Agree on keeping JJB over Ridnour, but I'm actually okay with Reddick or Afflalo if came down to it. I think reddick would love his fit here.
