Default All-Star Noah is back

For the past 5+ games, he's been consistent, giving us everything we needed. During the Heat game, he stood strong and provided us excellent defense and rebounding. And during today's wizards game, he was 3 assist away from a triple double.

You can tell he wasn't in the best of shape in the beginning part of the season. Nice to see him getting back into his normal form. This is the Noah we are going to need in the Playoffs to win it all.

Hmmm. Dude just needed time to get rolling.

Funny how the sane people saying that ended up right.

Post Re: All-Star Noah is back

I'm glad he's playing well again, but as soon as he gets his value back up he should be traded for expiring contracts and draft picks. It's not that I don't like him, I do, but as far as production and salary are concerned, he isn't worth it long-term compared to what we can get for the same price.

He makes $11 million next year, and it increases by $1 million every year after that. Omer is a RFA at the end of the year, and Taj is a RFA after next year. We can give both of them extensions for the same price of Noah's contract. Since we are already over the luxury threshold for next season (after Derrick's new deal kicks in we'll be about $72 million), one of Noah, Boozer, or Deng needs to go. Deng is staying - no doubt about that.

If it comes down to Boozer vs Noah, which one would be easier to replace? It's obviously Noah - Omer can do almost all the same things, and the rest aren't that important. If we lose Boozer, how do we replace his contributions? The only way would be to trade one of our assets or spend more money in free agency (which prevents us from extending Omer and Taj)...neither of those is a good idea for a team in our position.

Like it or not, Noah has to go...and that's something I wouldn't have said even one year ago.
