Small sample size, but the reason Bagley isn't playing much is because he has been horrible.

25 mins.. 36/26/58% with 11 pts and 8 boards 0.9 assists. 7.16 PER

Biz just for comparisons...

28 mins... 56/0/50% with 9.5 pts and 7 boards and 2.9 assists. 14.26 PER

Unless Kings are giving him away, I would be a bit nervous about trading for him. Also, he is a PF not a Center.

even hating life and going through kings syndrome - he's better than zeller :lol:

i'd take him over biz in a heartbeat too

bagley playing bad is still better on both ends

Bagley in the pick and roll with LaMelo would be unstoppable.

We've never had a big as athletic as Bagley is to attack the rim. I think he'd be better in the P&R with LaMelo from day one. He needs a big to develop and grow with. What we have ain't it.

Fultz is out for the season, they might like a Devontae.

For Bamba or Birch?

Pretty sure they are just going to roll with MisterIchiro’s guy at the point though?

Bamba stinks and has been garbage his whole NBA career, Devonte is in a slump but still has some potential to be fairly good. I would rather get a similar player back for him, like Giles. I am fine with trading him though. Too short and redundant with Ball and Terry.

bigs almost always develop slow

i'm still floored as to why people think JUST devonte's shooting is the problem. he's been abysmal all over the floor...

and with the way his value is falling off a cliff, i'd rather him go sooner rather than later. i just want something in return at this rate.

Why not try for Hayes. Better fit and more productive than Bamba. He is buried behind Adams and they are right up against the tax. Saves them a little wiggle room for a later trade and we get a solid backup and future potential starting center.

Graham has struggled this year for sure...it’s been frustrating to watch...but Bamba?? Hard pass...definitely more open to Bagley or Hayes

I have been posting some serious trade topics here lately, so I figured I would be silly and just ask what type of offer you would be willing to put in for James Harden. He essentially has this year and next followed by a player option for 47 million (hard to say right now if he would pick up depending on cap number then).

Harden has a bit of young Jordan in him to be honest. Really good player in the season, but has not broken through and found playoff success. Now he is already 31, so he probably only 3-4 elite years left. I wonder if this is actually one of those times where a Michael Jordan could actually help a player.. media says it all the time, but this one feels the most applicable. What would you offer?

To me I would want to keep LaMelo and Hayward, but everyone else would be available to discuss. Just for fun lets say the offer was...

Rozier, Zeller, Graham, Monk, Washington and 2 future firsts for Harden. Maybe salary filler here and there, but that would be core of the offer.

Our firsts would have more value to a team then say the Celtics, Nets, Heat, etc.

Obviously it would leave our roster super broken for this year and we would have to find a bunch of very cheap role players out of GLeague, buyouts, overseas, etc...

LaMelo, Harden, Hayward core would probably make us a top 2 or 3 seed in the East next season. We would need to sign a bunch of cheap Vets especially at bigs, but with three really good passers I think we would be a destination for ring chasers that wanted playing time.

Anywho, just was being silly. Don't think we would make this type of move and honestly the whole what would you trade for Deshaun Watson topic is what got me thinking.

I would have to seriously consider not watching Hornets games if we got Harden. As good as he is I just cannot stand his game or his attitude. Probably my most disliked player since Kobe retired.

That being said, I wouldn't trade Riller for him

Melo would be the center piece of any Harden deal.

Even Melo + Graham + PJ + Miles + multi 1st isn't likley better than they would get elsewhere
