I guess I'm not the only one who, you know, thinks that Minnesota's duo, Rubio and Love, are fun to watch, but does anyone think some kind of deal could be done where we could acquire either of men, if not both? Say, trading Jameer and - I don't know - Jason Richardson(?) for Rubio and say, Randolph(?) since it is highly unlikely that we could get package of both Rubio and Love unless, of course, we're sending Dwight in return, and we all know that will never happened. In ideal conditions, I wouldn't mind parting with Anderson and whoever else not named Dwight in addition to Jameer and Richardson if that is what it takes to get us Rubio and Love, but once again, I don't see Minnesota giving up on their biggest assets unless Dwight is not part of that story; though, on the second thought, Kahn is Kahn, so you know, who knows, perhaps we should try :-)
But to go back to more "realistic" scenarios, I don't know if salaries are matching (Jameer and Richardson for Rubio and Randolph), but I would really like to see Rubio on our team - even more than Love since, you know, we already have a solid starter in Anderson - and Randolph could definitely fill that need for backup center. JJ would, of course, in that scenario automatically become our starting shooting guard, Wafer his backup. I think that is not too bad.
PG - Rubio / Duhon
SG - Redick / Wafer
SF - Turkoglu / Q. Richardson
PF - Anderson / Davis
C - Dwight / Randolph
Anyone think this trade is possible? If not, what would we need to give to Minnesota to get Rubio back? Or perhaps I should first ask, does anyone see Rubio as an upgrade over Nelson? To me, Jameer is done. He has always been short, but this season he looks particularly bad, and if we don't trade him now while he is still worth something - is he actually worth anything anymore? - the chances are he'll worth nothing next year. Any opinions? Does anyone have an idea how could we get Kevin Love to Orlando perhaps? Would you trade Howard for Love and Rubio package?
