First off, I want this crap to be over just as much as anyone else. It's just getting straight up annoying as hell reading rumors. I have constructed a trade on here that hits every request on Denver's list, and actually doesn't kill us. I think this trade definitely makes us a better team, and we get to hold on to the most important pieces of this team.
Alright we're getting down to the wire here with the Melo thing. Before all of the trades discussed on here were moot because we didn't really know where Denver stood on things. Now that we know they want our entire team we can start trimming down their absurd request into something realistic.
Why Denver wants it: Save serious $, Young talent (Gallo-Chandler), and prospect they can trade for pick or keep(Randolph)
Why we want it: Solves our backup pg problem in a tremendous way, keep the guy that matters most when it comes to playing with a volume player like melo (fields), and we get to keep Felton.
We lose Chandler, which is probably going to happen either way at the end of this season, and we lose Gallo which will cause mass suicide on this site for a few weeks but then we'll all survive.
Bench : Billups, Douglas, Shawne, Walker
Or if we want to small ball it...
Pickup earl Barron. Thats an insane backup pg in Billups....solves a huge problem.
With the way things stand right now, this is the deal I'd absolutely love to see go through...
I can't think of a deal that helps our needs at backup guard more, saves Denver more money, lands us Melo, and increases our ability to trade for CP3 or Williams next year (with that big expiring in Billups)
