My case to trade Hardaway 

Post#1 » by bleedblue3303 » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:02 am

I think you absolutely keep Frank. Let him grow into the player he needs to be. I would also explore trading everyone else not named KP. I would start with Kanter, even Hardaway. Hardaway is making 17 million per year. If you look at Boston, one of the most successful teams, the only players that get the big money are all stars. And you surround them with young players and role players who fit certain molds. I would be very curious, if Cleveland would ever consider the Brooklyn pick which will most likely be lower half of lotto for Hardaway. I would take a bad contract for 2 picks in this years draft. I think the top 6 are extremely strong. Right now Doncic according to NBAdraft.net is going 6th. This provides us with 2 more young pieces to surround Frank and KP. If the team gels well after next year we go after a second all star caliber player, possibly a third but that may take another year with Noah on the books. I still think the Hardaway contract was a huge mistake. But i really believe we can get value for him and Cleveland is ripe for the picking.

Overpaid or not, the team plays better with Hardaway. Especially KP. Frank will also be better when Hardaway gets back, Frank is good at working with off ball guys and THJ runs well off the ball. Hardaway brings the spacing that we are desperate for right now.

I’m sure Timmy would of been gone by now if he was worth the nets pick with that said we already have a bad rep for the way Phil treated melo and signing Timmy and trading him for the 2nd time so soon just seems like a dick move imo

Hardy is not overpaid...we could have had him for less and him been underpaid but overpaid he is not...
In Krist we trust...

Greenie: Disagree. I think Tatum is going to be better than KP. I don't know about DSjr.
