Are you kidding me? They want to move Hickson for Casspi?

I thought they could do better than that.

Ehhh. I would not say that. He is still only 22, crazier things have happened in the NBA. He has improved every year he has been in the league and has shown explosiveness at times, it just needs to be consistent. Still, I would not be happy trading JJ straight up for Casspi. Give me Casspi and Greene or Casspi and Thompson, I might be a little happier.

If they had trade for Amare, LBJ and Amare would both be in Cleveland right now.

how many times do cleveland fans have to tell you that we did throw in hickson, but phoenix backed down.

I'm not trying to say Hickson sucks or anything, but I don't see him becoming anything more than a very solid starting caliber 4. Regardless, Hickson >>>> Casspi.

Amare wouldn't have re-upped with the Cavs.

Good trade. Seems even. The SF slot in Cleveland was a revolving door last season. OC had a sophmore slump last season, but I haven't lost faith in his talents. JJ Hickson is a good player.

JJ came into his own last year. before last year i'd say he was overrated and maybe a bust, but last year when he was getting shots and run, he was beasting more games than not. i mean putting up damn near 20/10 type numbers...
WTF. Now, sure, he was a much improved player last year (mostly from getting more run), but this shit is over the top. Dude put up 14/9 on 45% shooting. He will never be a star. 20/10 my ass

I don't know why Hickson has such a good reputation in ISH. Is he really really good on NBA2k or something?

Hickson is an average rebounder and a below average everything else. I don't see him becoming much better than this either. Pretty even roleplayer trade.

did you watch Cle much last year? he was dominant some games. only problem is he makes dumb mistakes or fumbles the ball a lot, or is wishy washy where he doesn't show up some games, but he can dominate when he does.

i'd say at the very least he's well above average at the position, and could end up a star. like i said borderline....

and Casspi is nowhere near IMO. not saying he can't be better with higher value, if anything its probably low due to his PT in Sac, but as of now he isn't remotely close to JJ's value IMO.

Pick goes to Cavs RT @mr_jasonjones: Trade is done. Omri Casspi headed to Cleveland for J.J. HIckson and a conditional first round pick.

Sounds like it is lottery protected, which is a bad deal.
