Unless you have all around superduper stars like LBJ or CP3, you're always going to have imperfect fits. Noel/Love is great on paper, but Love really isn't that great a low post scorer; he's solid, but his bread and butter is his ability to space the floor. With that duo I wouldn't be surprised if we have a lot to complain about in our lack of paint offense. We need more good players first, then we can figure out how to tweak the roster fit. Right now there's so much surrounding mediocrity that it might not be a fair assessment of the Pek/Love/Rubio triumvirate

We just have to keep progressing forward. It doesn't really add any insight to say we need to move Pek or Love because obviously letting one go for a poor return is going to make us worse. How do we make ourselves better? It's about who we can add, not who we can let go.

Agreed and like I said before, letting Pek and his 5 million hit against the cap go doesn't give us the ability to add anything special. For the team it makes no sense to let Pek go. For Taylor, it makes sense if he doesn't want to pay luxury taxes down the road.

He has one. He just doesn't use it much and it's not as evolved as other All Star PFs.

Houston getting Howard for just Asik? Why wouldnt we just trade pek/ridnour for dwight?
love/dwight would be an amazing combo.

Did you smell a bit too much kitty litter, cpfsf? Where does Nash suddenly come from? How do the salaries match etc.

If Nash had less than 3 years on his deal and wouldn't be in a constant threat to injure himself upon an arrival here, I'd like the value in this trade very much, though.

I think cpfsf has been smoking some of that wacky tobacky.
