I didn't think the trade was terrible, but you guys gave up way too much. Steve Blake would be a solid backup PG for you; he can shoot and pass well, and I believe Ha Seung Jin could be your next Yao, and I stick by those words. Brian Skinner is a solid backup who can do the dirty work for you, and you let him go as well. You get a starting Center in return, but you gave up way too much depth and potential. I think you could get 13-10 from Magloire, but now you jeopordized your bench, particularly at PG. Magloire will at least give you a nice third or fourth scoring option, but I think a Steve Blake for Jamaal Magloire trade would be much better; that way you would keep a solid rotation inside, and would just have to sign a free agent PG to replace Blake. Your loss though. You can compete down low with Magloire and Aldridge, though, that's a start. Hopefully I'm wrong about this trade, b/c I love what you guys have been doing with your franchise since the draft.
