and if we couldn't get Carmelo Anthony in a trade...would you guys be willing to trade VC for Arenas? Or would you just let this season go to waste (as i don't think we have a chance of winning it all without VC)
I really hope VC isnt out the year, and it's just a minor injury...but if he is out the year, and if we couldn't get Melo, I'd be open to trading for Arenas. I believe that Washington would take Carter's expiring contract, as they are a rebuilding team, and want to groom John Wall without the distractions of Arenas.
I've been following Arenas this year, and the past week, he has been lighting it up statistically. I think he still has a lot of game left in the tank, and I believe that SVG can mold him into a more mature player. Plus he can handle the ball, and score 1 on 1.
On the negative side, obviously, are his enormous contract (even though I think Rashard's is still a little worse considering he doesn't do anything but score points), and his shady character (which I don't think will be that much of a problem in a winning environment like Orlando).
And as much as I'd love to get CP3, with the Hornets winning, I don't see him leaving town anymore...so in my eyes, Arenas is the best out there that we can get if we cannot get Melo or cp3
What do you guys think?
