I rarely use the trade machine, but that changes for at least today. I went over to ESPN and decided just what the Sixers could do to get a backup PG. I think one of the big issues of how bad the Sixers are when Jrue Holiday is sitting out is that they don’t have anybody running the offense effectively. Wayns didn’t work out and Ivey isn’t working. As bad as our front court is, I think getting a backup PG is better for the team for the rest of the season. Long term, Sixers should hunt for a better big man. Here are the trades:
Here the Sixers get my prized possession at the moment in Luke Rinour as well as getting a somewhat decent big man in Amundson. Amundson played for the Sixers to start his NBA career although he was called up from the D-League and was playing on a couple of 10-day contracts. Now, it’s projected that the Sixers would lose 3 wins while the T-Wolves would stay where they are. The Wolves may not take this trade since Rubio has been struggling with injuries. But this post is mainly wishful thinking while getting rid of Hawes.
Sixers give up Allen straight up (yo) for Blake. No, Blake isn’t a very good player but again we’re looking for a back-up and I think Blake would be decent for this team. He can run an offense and can shoot too. Lavoy is an okay big and with the Lakers having big man problems, maybe having an extra big wouldn’t hurt. Plus, Lakers still have Chris Duhon…so yeah…
Calm down, calm down. There was bound to be a crazy idea in here somewhere. This is it. Maybe. Maynor isn’t being used by the Thunder anymore. Reggie Jackson took over the backup spot when Maynor went down. But, Eric was doing a really good job. Thunder are also not using Lamb that much. And Lamb is a SG that may be able to get some minutes with J-Rich going down.
These were trades for a PG, as the title would suggest. So what do you think Sensors? Should me aim for one of these trades? What trade would you bring? Am I crazy to think maybe at least one of these trades can work? Again, we’re looking at getting a backup PG. I could do another post for getting a big man with the recent Thad injury and who knows about Bynum.
