Murray didn’t take the jump I had hoped he would but Denver has plenty of time. Let suppose Denver was willing to do the trade. I would absolutely take Murray. I dont know that he turns in to an all star but he fits Shai’s time line. It’s worth a shot from okc’s perspective and I think Denver should hold off or look elsewhere.
For the record, the last time Cp3 made an all star game was four months ago. Four is also where cp3 ranks in usage in the okc roster. The idea that cp3 needs to have the ball in his hands to be effective and would take it away from Jokic is a fallacy. In fact his usage his lower than both Jokic and Murray. Swapping Murray for Cp3 would actually put the balk in Jokic’s hands more often which is what Denver fans seem to want. I understand why Denver fans wouldn’t want to do the trade but let’s make sure the reasons are accurate.
You say my chicago trade is bad but denver will never make this trade unless they want to clean the house Murray contract is not the best one but is not cp3 contract also cp3 can be the best player this year but murray is only 23 years old and cp is 35 denver will never take cp3 and give us their second best player behind jokic, we can sell them cp3 next year if they dont get to the western confernce final, or the nba final, a team of cp3 , murray jokic, grant, porter jr is better that this year denver team, our best bet is to take harris , and barton or Plumlee with fillers, this way we can use harris we can use harris as six man or insurance if dennis is traded, barton can take the sf until bazley improved or we get someone better, and their contracts are smaller and more easy to move, I think the direction of the team will depend in gallinari, if we sign and traded him or he walk in free angency or if we sign him. For me that would be the first domino to fall
First, thanks for the response. Second, don’t shy away from using periods. Not trying to be a jerk but the above post is difficult to read. Lastly, I don’t think Denver goes in this direction because I don’t think they’ve been overly aggressive. They seem to be content to build with the guys they have and even hold on to them a little too long. However it’s all speculation.
