I havent been on here enough to say I have followed what people are posting. I have changed jobs, putting me on the computer all day. The last thing I want to do when I get home is sit on one. Browsing some of the posts I am seeing a reacurring theme, we need this or lets get rid of that, but what does that give us?
We really need help at the point guard. I think both Tinsley and Watson are good third string PG’s, but they cannot match up the the best PG’s in the league night in and out. They can pretty much keep up with the second string PG’s, but I want a second string PG who can keep up with a starting PG, and a starting PG who can keep up with most of the elite PG’s. But whats out there and available. I dont want an aging guy, unless he comes off the bench and is a solid back up. I want someone who is in their prime or younger to grow with our young guys. Chris Paul would be Ideal, but why would he come to Utah? So whats left that isnt old, young, or sub par?
Look in he draft, there isnt a lot to be had. Those of you who want to trade Paul and Al for draft picks, will likely be adding either a wing or another big. Doesnt make a lot of sense tradinga big for a big, but I guess its better than drafting a PG who might not fit our needs.. If you look, this draft is full of bigs and short on our main need, the PG.
Look at Free Agency, we are looking again at old dudes or duds, and an elite few that wont look toward Utah. Might as well keep MO unless your upgrading over him, but how will you do that? I see lots of I wants, but I dont see many people with valid ideas. Ive seen people trading Paul and Al for other bigs, how does that make any sense. We need an upgrade at the point, then some depth at the wing. Then maybe a backup big behind our young bigs.
Maybe we should have made a move last year to get that local PG that Portland ended up with, pulling the trigger a little early, but putting ourselves into a position for the future. What do you guys think? Share your thoughts and ideas. Let me know what I have missed. And remember when your making trades, trading a for a and b for b doesnt make us better, it keeps us the same. You need to find real solutions, not just jump the fence for what appears a greener pasture.
Unless there is an Upgrade to be had, I dont see any trades being made. It may make sense to trade out Paul or Al for a first round draft pick but what losing team in the league is going to rent either one and give up a lottery pick? What playoff team can use their services and has something that we need in return? Its not as easy as some would have you believe.
So whats Available? What makes us better? What works not only for our team but for the other team?
