I'm w/ metro on this one I'm a bit confused as to how these two can coexist. It can work if Zach tapers off his scoring, and maybe pulls down four more boards a game. So if he averaged something like 17 pts and 14 redbs, and Curry really comes back w/ a defensive mentality then they can coexist. I like Zeke, but this one is a real hit or miss, and unlike the Francis move this one lies soley one him. We can't afford another set back, I want this team to continue moving forward, and I'm not saying this isn't going to make us a better team it's just going to take both of them to change their style of play.
Next question is- is Zach here to stay, I mean Zach and Balkman is a pretty nice package for Oneil. Zach, Lee, and a unprotected pick could be enough to draw interest from the likes of Minn, or maybe not. I'm with everyone else, I don't want to see Lee go, I like him on and off the court, but for KG it may be worth it. I don't want him packaged for Lewis, if the Sonics don't bite on Crawford, Robinson, and Balkman, and a conditonal pick, then we don't have a deal. Rashard is good but not that damn good, we could probably land Artest for less. Look we already helped out Portland's future ( as well as our own hopefully) let's not be Seattle's savior too by giving them Lee, also ( and this is not sweatin the man) kudo's to Zeke for not biting on the Blazers trying to dump D Miles on us! Now if we somehow land Rashard without giving up Lee then, this will be IT's best off season yet.
and maybe Fred Jones in the case someone in the backcourt goes down for an extended period of time
probaly one of the most talanted squads in the East if not all the league
Also how much does this trade help or hurt Randolph Morris, if he is considered one of our first round picks how much burn will he get?
Alot of question at the start of this off season, hopefully we won't be asking the same questions on opening night.
