So I’ve heard it rumored every now and again… but now I’ve seen it on 3 professional writers posts.
Straight up Al Jefferson for Andre Iguadala.
I find this trade to be an advantage for a few reasons.
1) Iggy is a stud. He will come in and bring muscle and leadership for our young guys. He’s quick, can finish, run the fast break. He also is a great defensive presence. He is an awesome rebounder for a SF. He’s got ball handling skills and is quick enough to defend point gaurds and strong enough to defend some PF’s in the league.
2) It allows Favors and Kanter to branch out. Yes… everyone will finally have their wish with having one of our bigs gone. Favors would probably start Center (I doubt Kanter will) and Paul would start the 4 spot. Back up for the 4 spot would be tricky but Marvin Williams could probably play some PF and we still do have Evans but he is pretty small still for a 4.
2 Cont’d) Coach Corbin said that he wants to try playing Burks at the 1. He really did say that. This way we wouldn’t have a giant jam at the wings and Murphy (rookie) could get some playing time. I could see Rotation something to this:
PG) Williams, Burks, Tinsley, Watson
SG) Hayward, Murphy, Carroll
SF) Iggy, Carroll,Marvin Williams, Evans
PF) Millsap, Marvin Williams, Evans
C) Favors, Kanter
This trade kind of makes us look like a thin front line. One of those guys gets hurt and we’re kinda screwed. I dont know… just my opinion.
And yet again… I dont know if this rumor is legit.
