No one in the world agrees with that.

It really is comical to suggest trading Brown or Tatum (and I have seen some C’s fans suggest both at different times this year). Those two are our building blocks for the future. Also both have played parts of this season at less than 100%. That should always be remembered.


There are so few players one would rightly trade Tatum for that the chance of him being rightly traded is essentially nil.

There are a few more one would trade Brown for, so the chance there's a sensible trade for him is better characterized as "small" rather than Tatum's "approximately zero".

Just to bring this back since this is not a trade thread, I think Nesmith could turn into a pretty good 6th man next year possibly who could sub in for either wing spot.

Anyone up for comparing to how Precious and S. Bey’s rookie seasons are developing?



Here are Precious stats for the last 10 games

Splits GP MIN FG% 3P% FT% REB AST BLK STL PF TO PTS
L10 5 9.6 28.6 0.0 50.0 3.0 0.2 0.0 0.2 1.4 0.6 1.8

nothing to get excited about....Bey had a great last game and is putting up decent numbers, but he is getting a ton of shots and PT so its comparing apples to oranges, He has had basically triple the minutes Nesmith has, He is averaging 11 and 4 on a bad team it is not like he is lighting the world on fire, he is shooting 38% from three for the season (about the same as nesmith)
His last 10
Splits GP MIN FG% 3P% FT% REB AST BLK STL PF TO PTS
L10 10 31.9 37.1 37.3 77.4 6.2 1.6 0.6 1.0 1.0 1.0 13.8

Solid rotation player numbers, don't love the 37% overall from the field, but he looks like he will be a decent NBA player, I think Nesmith has more upside. Bey is a good NBA player though. Detriot has given him tons of PT and shots to develop.


I think you're underselling Bey a bit. His FG% on the year is .408 (taking more than 2/3rds of his shots from 3 and hitting .459 from 2) and his FT% is .858, netting him out to a .575 TS%. Pretty good for a rookie. I don't really get the point of focusing on just 10 games out of a nearly done 72-game season. And you're right, he may well be passed in production and development by others in his draft class who haven't got as much opportunity this year. I too think Nesmith has more upside.



The 10 game stats are to show the past few weeks what has been going on, namely that Precious has largely fallen out of Favor in Miami and that Bey's role in Detroit is increasing, I stated earlier in the passsage is full season numbers of 11 and 4 which 10 the past 10 games have gone up to 13 and 6 showing a bigger role. Either way he is getting a ton of shots (He had 38 shots in his last 2 games) He had another high scoring output Monday getting 26 points on 17 shots. I am not saying Bey won't be good, I am just saying some people on this board have overstated his success, his last 3 games have been one of his best stretchs of the season and he has shot well in the expanded role.

Okay, thanks. I didn't quite get all that from your original post.

Damn, I love all the talk of adding Brogdon and Sabonis but get a “trade thread” room, guys.

Also thanks for the Precious and Bey stats!
