That's fine he's angry, but you can't lay all the blame on Sloan (As much as I know you'd like to Xaio) it's an entire team thing. Deron has had 17 turnovers over the past 4 games so it's not like he's completely blameless in the losses. I can understand his annoyance at the teams reluctance/refusal to trade, but they may have their reasons for that, although it's probably down to $ like normal.
I'm not for putting CJ in the starting 5 (I like him as a bench spark), and Haywood should be D-leagueing it, but they can't send him down because they don't have anyone to replace him. Hopefully Okur is a bit better after the all-star break. I'd move him to the 5 and have Jefferson off the bench. Have Williams, Bell, AK, Millsap, Okur as your starting 5.
Ideally you look to trade Okur and Jefferson. He's an expensive bench player amd Miles could start if he's on the bench.
Ideally, yes you would try and trade them, but we both know that's not going to happen. Jefferson still has 2 years and $29 million left, so I doubt there's a huge market for him. Okur might be tradeable next year, but they'd probably let him expire.
The reason they won't get traded is cuz they don't want to. As we saw with Rashard Lewis everyone is tradable and Jefferson certainly had others interested in him before the Jazz got him.
Yea, but the Magic had to take back Gilbert to get rid of Lewis. While it's arguable Gilbert is the better player, he has a worse contract with more years then Lewis, not to mention the previous knee and attitude issues.
But yea, you're most likely right in that they're not getting traded because they don't want to. Nothing without Sloan's approval.
