Better option???
Play Bledsoe and Dragic together in the back court or Trade Dragic w/ Gortat to Pelicans for Eric Gordon?

I'd rather not trade Dragic again and I don't want to put him in a position where he'll be fighting for minutes with that boy Jrue, Vasquez, and Tyreke.

If we were to be the team that inevitably trades for Eric Gordon at some point this offseason the Pelicans better be ready for a lowball.

Just looked that up, didn't know they were already trading for Tyreke Evans.

Looks like they might S&T Lopez+Vasquez for Evans so they can get some value.

Re: Better option???
Bledsoe is more of a score first PG (correct?) and Dragić is more the traditional type PG. Honestly depends on what you feel gives you the best option to win, right? I really like Gordon and was disappointed for the Suns when the Hornets matched the offer sheet. Seems to me like the Pelicans (still getting used to that) are stockpiling talent. Rumors they are about to add Evans either by sign-and-trade, or outright thru the offer sheet that the Kings allegedly will not match.

If I had to guess, I'd venture to say the Suns hold on to Gortat at least till the trade deadline (could be wrong) but seems to me, they are interested in seeing if he can help Len at all. But, that is all contingent upon the offers they receive in return, because if they get something they feel helps them out, Gortat is as good as gone. I just hope they don't salary dump him. I never been a fan of that method of business practice.

I think that Gordon will be gone. Don't think he'll be a part of the Pelicans future.

Re: Better option???
New management wants to make their own mark and will have time before being expected to win. To me that shows there is a possibility of dealing dragic. Are the suns really going to give Bledsoe a big contract to be a backup?

Shumpert and Felton for dragic.

Shumpert would be a great fit next to Bledsoe and Felton is solid and on a backup pg's contract.

Re: Better option???
Still not certain about Bledsoe's ability to run an offense. He's a physical beast though.
