Re: can we PLEASE move deng? please?
I like JJ alot as a player but truth is that in my opinion he's a year or two removed from being able to start and contribute significantly. If we're going to go out and get a big time free agent and want to contend in the East we won't be able to do so with JJ starting. I don't see us getting back a player in a trade that would be able to start for us and be better than Deng even with his negative aspects. If we do then by all means but I dont see it happening.I definately wouldn't trade Deng just for peanuts. If we do it has to be for someone as good as him if not better. If we're serious about contending then we have to get better not take 2 steps back to take 1 forward. Our time is now (starting next season).
