Hmmmm...

With all the movement out of New York today... (along with an interesting thought from our friends at poasting and toasting) I decided to play with the following trade scenario.

NewYork/Sactown

Now.

Why would we do this you say?

We are giving up arguably our best post defender in "The Landlord" Shelden Williams. Our energy/hustle/coolnessfactor guy in Mikki Moore and our favorite combo-guard-with-a-uni-brow Quincy Douby.

And getting in return a defensive liability in the post (i.e. Curry) and an undersized 4 man with a great motor and a lot of hustle in David Lee.

I have always had a fascination with Eddy Curry (these days it is more like the fascination with a train-wreck or watching the fat-kid eat 12 doughnuts). He has a massive amount of talent but never seemed to have the drive to really get out on the court and achieve his full potential. I think in a place like Sacramento where we are patient with our ball players and care for them on a level that sometimes borders on sainthood (helllloooooo Bobby Jackson) Eddy could come back around as he is still young. Not to mention that playing for a guy like Theus could be a good thing because Theus always seems to get a lot out of the players. And we have a decent big-man coach in 'Reef.

We get rid of Williams (who I actually like despite his warts I think he could be an asset as a third or fourth big man who can board and play good D ala Haslem) and we do lose our "hustle guy" but we get back a younger better scoring version of him in David Lee. We clear a bit of the wing-jam but do not help ourselves upfront.

What do you guys think?
