After watching the Rubio documentary,
i had my eyes on the possibility of trading for Rudy fernandez...
i know it wont be easy to acquire Rudy from the Blaze.. But i think we can..
here’s my scenario:
i believe a 3rd team would be the answer.. we all know that the Jazz wants to dump salary.. So let them join the trade party and solve their salary problems.. they ca dump kirilenko’s $16.4M / 2yrs… let’s give them expiring contracts, (Blount $7.9, Cardinal $6.7, Pavlovic, $1.5).. and they can still utilize pavlovics’ production if they wanted to. plus they dont have a reliable back-up PG for Deron.. So grab Blake from Blazers (also an expiring $4M contract)… We could add an early 2nd rounder too or a late 1st round..
For portland, they need a big man right now.. so they get Koufus, he’s a decent player when given the minutes. Ellington who’s a SG prospect.. (if they dont want ellington, we could send them another big in Hollins or Stewey Pecherov).. and an upgrade at PG in Sessions.. i think Sessions will fit them more because they have a young core. and Blake is knocking in the 30yrs old door. and we could still also send them 2nd rounders if needed.
and who do we get?? RUDY FERNANDEZ plus Kirilenko… Then sign Rudy for a long term contract.. and Reap the rewards in Kirilenko’s production + great defense.. it’s all worthed.. and a great core + Rudy to lure Rubio to play for us..
so we get a lineup of:
PG – Flynn
SG – Fernandez
SF – Kirilenko
PF – Love
C – Jefferson
G – Brewer, Wilkins, Tucker
F – Gomez, Jawai
C – Pecherov ,Hollins
