Metrocard's analysis
We can't have both.
Both play the 3.
Its wise to ride out with one SF prospect.
Gallo happens to be more talented and skilled prospect who would fit better in this system.
I'm bringing this thread up to make the forum aware of Chandler's value and what we could get for him (which is a lot).
I'm not giving up on Chandler.
He's going to be a GREAT player.
But having Gallo and Chandler on the same team would be like having Deron Williams and Chris Paul on the same team, pointless.
This isn't a Chandler hate thread.

All I'm saying I rather have Gallo at the 3 for the future.
Chandler can't play any other position besides the 3. His rebounding isn't good enough to play the 4 and his handles aren't good enough to play guard.
