    Default Where would you send Steve Francis?

    So we all know Steve Francis will not be a staple of this team unless Marbury goes. BUT that's a different topic for another day.

    The point I bring to you IS if you were GM and were heavily pursuing a REASONABLE (makes sense for both teams) trade where would you send him and what would we get in return. Lets realize Stevie Franchise does not hold the same value as he once did and that other players could be included.

    Please let them work with the cap!

    I have a few ideas but heres a couple.

    1. Memphis.
    SEND- Jerome James, Maurice Taylor, Quentin Richardson and Steve Francis
    GET- Stromile Swift, Brian Cardinal, Eddie Jones and Mike Miller

    KNICKS
    Curry/Swift
    Frye/Lee/Rose/Cardinal
    Jeffries/Jones/Rose
    Crawford/Miller
    Marbury/Robinson/Collins

    GRIZZLIES
    James/Tsakadilis
    Gasol/Taylor/Roberts
    Gay/Warrick
    Richardson/Jones/Kinsey
    Francis/Stoudamire/Atkins/Harrington/Lowry

    2. Portland.
    SEND- Steve Francis and Malik Rose
    GET- Zach Randolph, Juan Dixon and Darius Miles

    KNICKS
    Curry/Frye/James
    Randolph/Lee/Taylor
    Jeffries/Miles/Rose/Balkman
    Crawford/Richardson, Dixon
    Marbury/Robinson/Collins

    BLAZERS
    Magloire/Pryzbilla
    LaFrentz/Aldridge
    Outlaw/Rose
    Roy/Webster
    Francis/Jack/Dickau

    Thumbs down

    I like the first option of sending our slackers off to Memphis but I don't think it's going to happen. In that trade Memphis would get nothing but bad contracts. Myles is consitterd to be the (franchise player)for the Blazers so no way are they trading him for Francis or Richardson. To answer your question, who could we get for Francis that wont hurt the cap? I believe the answer is not an easy one. It may be too premature to make that trade. Let' showcase Francis a little. I actually think he and Steph can play together. That's NOT to say they should! But they can if Steph becomes a true PG or vise versa. We are stuck with these contracts until they expire or the players start to play better ball.

    I would send steve francis to the starting lineup with starbury so they can do some damage and become possibly the best backcourt in the NBA...

    Chris your wrong they want to ship out D-Miles badly. We could of had him last week for the simple price of Q-Rich.

    And its actually pretty fair for Memphis. They get JJs bad contract but we get Cardinals. they get an expiring Taylors. we get an expiring Jones. pretty good for them especially seeing they need a good pg to play with gasol.

    1 and Only, why do you keep saying we should keep Francis? Do you really think that he and Steph together will workout NONETHELESS become the best backcourt in the NBA? haha Not being mean but what makes you think thatll work? Just because they have both been allstars point guards? BEEN and POINT GUARDS being the keywords.

    No GM would be foolish enough to pick up Jerome James unless your throwing in Channing Frye or Eddie Curry. How does picking up Cardinal for James make us better? That's like trading bad acne for eczema! I don't see the Taylor for E.Jones trade working ether. Yeah ok, they both have expiring contracts but Taylor is not on Jones's level. That plus I'm sure Portland will try to trade Jones and his expiring contract for a better player like we dide with the Davis/J.Rose trade.

    Chris what are you talking about? It's one trade. not seperate ones..
    And where does Jones come in the Portland trade I came up with?
    Very confusing post.

    I'll like that for a Wilcox trade: How about trading (remember we need to giveup something good as well):

    Richardson -- Chris Wilcox
    Francis and Lee -- Kenyon Martin

    That would give us:

    C Curry, James
    PF Martin, Wilcox
    SF Frye, Jefferies,
    SG Crawford, Rose
    PG marbury, Robinson

    This team would not lack rebounding and defense!

    a trade for wilcox and martin is a redundant trade. its like having shaq and yao on the same team. and frye does not belong playing small foward. also, where did the rest of the roster go???

    I don't like that trade at all. Rose can't guard other SG. Nate Rob is still molding his game into a PG. Frye isn't at all a SF. James is still a liability and martin is a head case waiting to crack...I wouldn't trade the franchise until I knew he couldn't fit into our offense. You never know, his all-star form could return this year...

    You'd give up both Francis and Lee for Martin?! what the hell.
    im all for giving up Francis cause he is a liability at the SG but not with Lee included. I like datruth's Wilcox for Francis. it wouldnt work cap wise but you throw a player in here or there and itll do the job.

    then you have
    Curry/Wilcox
    Frye/Lee
    on rotation. niiiiice
