If we could trade STAT for essentially Turner straight up, or Elton ****ing Brand straight up, we should pull that trigger in a heartbeat.
I think Philly management would laugh in our faces about Turner.
Brand and a 1st rounder? Could be possible. It would be the first time in ages we bamboozled another franchise, prison rape style, and ditched an over the hill, over rated donkey.
Thing is this: even if Amaresa suddenly grew some knee cartilage along with his balls, he'd still be overpaid and a weakass contract.
On a team, that with Lin, the offensive renaissance of Chandler, JR, and Melo.... Render the one good thing Amare does even more negligible.
Amare used to be the most dominant inside scorer in the NBA.
But now, we have Tyson smacking records with a. 700% fg, a playmaking and aggressive PG, and a top NBA scorer in Melo.
All who will be here longterm.
What we need is a studly SG with real range. This could be JR....could be Oj Mayo.
But with STATus **** on our team, we won't have the cap to ever really solidify such moves.
