Really Hedley? Green for Gortat/ There is absolutely no way the Wiz do a Gortat sign and trade for Green. Kinda a pink hat comment from you there bro.
The Wiz can trade Martell Webster and Otto Porter for Green. Almost equal cash. 1 year deals for all (Green has an option). Webster is a poor man's Green. Similar but not as good all around, yet he's the same age, would demand less minutes to be a slightly better 3 point shooter and would be less frustrating to watch. A guy who would just quietly come off the bench and maybe be more efficient.
Where Green would be going home to where he played college at Georgetown, to be a teams 4th-5th best player, a perfect role for him, Porter needs a change of scenery from his hometown club. After being the 3rd pick out of G'Town he was the invisible man this year, but adds a young lotto pick at SF who could still develop eventually into what Green is now. fits the age of the players on the Boston rebuild.
Well, whether or not I think the Wiz will do it is not relevant. Gortat will be a UFA......and I know they want to re-sign him. He is, however, 30 years old. Would he be part of a rebuild? Not even sure he'd want to come to BOS. Just trying to make the money work. I do like your trade better, but.................it all depends on where we land in the draft. If we take Parker or Wiggins, we don't need Porter or Webster. If we take Embiid, we don't need Gortat.
There were some on this board that wanted The Suns to take our garbage for Gortat. There were still others that wanted no part of him, since he's 30. My trade does help both teams.....Green would be perfect on the Wiz........and they already have Nene and Gooden.
Trade will never happen, but I don't think it's as ridiculous as you claim.
Oh it is absolutely as rediculous as I claim.
The only way it makes any sense is if Gortat said he was 100% leaving, chose Boston as his destination, and asked to be signed and traded here. Since the C's have no cap space he'd have to have another team with cap space, and an offer in place for him, to use as leverage and THAT team would have to offer less in a sign and trade than the value that place on Jeff Green.
Like I said, silly.
What were the garbage offers for him when he was on Phoenix?
I remember making a Rondo and Bass for Dragic and Gortat offer last fall before Rondo tore the ACL. I believe my ideas for Gortat were always Bass, Bradley and a 1st round pick.
I agree that the draft would determine if we needed a SF like Porter or not.
Disagree again that the Wiz are somehow ok because they 'already have Gooden and Nene'. You mean two 30+ PF's makes them ok at center? That is like us being ok at C because we have Bass and Sully.
Like I said, I fully expect the Wiz to sign him. And, like I said, I like your trade better.
They like Green and we need a C. I also get he is a UFA and has a choice of destination.
Just throwing a bunch of stuff on the wall and seeing if it sticks.
Ainge is said to be shopping Green.....................and I read the Wiz like him. That's all.
Not saying your trade to PHO was the "garbage" one, either.
But - if the Wiz can get Gortat and three other players for Okafor? Certainly they could acquire another big man for Ariza, and pair Wall, Beal and Green together with Nene.
AGAIN - not going to happen, but my trade does help both teams.
