Maybe it would take even a little more than the 2 of them, and I really don’t know how to make the numbers work, but we do have a lot of value in the 2 of them. I know there are all sorts of reasons why not such as…
1. Would dwight resign with us?
2. Is he mature enough to even be a team player considering all his drama?
3. Is he overrated? He can’t hit an outside jumper which make pick and roll one dimensional..
4. Bringing on dwight would bury or limit Kanter.
And a bunch of other reasons. But, lets think about this… What kind of player would we be looking to get if we did trade Jefferson or Milsap individually or together? What players could we get that would make us better? No team is going to part with a super star for 2 borderline all-stars unless they were just trying to get the best deal they could cause their superstar is making things out to be like carmelo and dwight.
Let look at a lineup with both Favors and Dwight on the court together. that by itself really makes us a defensive team in the paint. Our rebounding gets drastically improved at both positions with 10+ rebounds in favors a game and a history of Dwight getting 13-14. Currently milsap and Al are combined average of about 17 rebounds per game. We could possibly see rebounds go up to 23-24 rebounds per game from those 2 positions combined. Scoring would be something we could see go up as well at both positions, although Howard is a downgrade for post move’s in my opinion, in fact it would be the same with Favors not being as well rounded as Milsap, but I think we all see that Favors upside and growth will change that, maybe even this season.
Obviously Howard wants to get to a big market, but with his help this year we could go deep in the playoff’s and easily give us what we need in luring/bringing an elite PG our way in the future… What would it take to get Tony Parker?
Being that we had an issue with Milsap playing the 3 very well (he did pretty good but not his position) Marvin helps us become a very big team. I would really push to get AK back with us as well to firm up the SF position. wE ALSO HAVE hAYWARD AND cAROL THAT CAN BE THERE FOR WHEN ak IS INJURED … We then have Carol, Hayward and burks to play the 2 position. And with Burks training to play the PG position we could see a future Westbrook conversion in some way out of him. Obviously we could use an amazing PG to really fill things up like a Rondo.
I kind of got away from the post subject which is Jefferson and Milsap for Dwight?
