Default Trade Rumors: Cavs & Kings

Quote:
Word around the campfire is Ferry is in talks with Sacramento as we speak. Their talking Gibson, Gooden and Hughes for Artest and Bibby. Heard it on Roda. I guess Artest would love to play with Lebron, and we know he wants out of Sac-town. I would hate to part with Gibson, but adding Artist and Bibby to Lebron Andy and Z would make us instant title contenders. This trade would be HUGE.

I'd do it in a second. They'd be a better team. However, for them to be truly effective they need to dump Big Z and their Coach. They're the only people holding the Cavs back.

it would not solve the problems. Bibby is injury prone and not a great distributor and not the best defender. Artest not a creative offensive player and a post player. Inside scoring and interior D would be weak. They might improve and maybe even make it to the ECF or finals but still lacking.

Cavs would improve a lot, in my opinion..but unless the Kings are bent on rebuilding and tanking, they don't do this.

Quote:

Bibby doesn't need to be the distributor. He'd play like he did when Vlade and Webber was there. Rotate to open positions for LeBron to find him. As long as he takes care of the ball he's fine. Can't be any worse than Snow.

Quote:

I don't think it really matters. He's not a good shooter, but he's scrappy and will be efficent at th end of the day. Much more so than Larry Hughes.

It already is. Gooden isn't really that good of a defender.

Mamba that's a good point about Z and Mike Brown. If this trade makes us more of a half court team, I don't know if I would do this just for the sole reason I don't have faith in Mike Brown's coaching skills, but I'd probably give in get this trade done.

At each of the positions the Cavs are trading, they get a better player to replace them. Vajejo for Gooden....Bibby for Gibson....and Artest for Hughes. But would we run? That would would b m main question, tho.

Would do this in a second, really a no-brainer, Hughes is useless and has an enourmous contract, Gooden is ok but nothing spectacular, and Gibson will be a decent starter at best.

Trade isn't going to happen and everyone who says Artest/Hughes was even discussed is wrong. The deal discussed was Bibby/Thomas for Varejao/Gooden/filler with bad contracts. That's all I'm going to say right now, Cleveland said no but I'm happy because as much as Bibby's pissing me off lately I don't like Sideshow bob or Gooden at all.

Trust me on this one ok? Trade talks between Cavs/Kings have already died and who knows if they're resurrected or not(hope not, rather deal Mike to a team like Miami).

Artest would play great with Lebron, then they can go home and make a CD together.

Call me crazy but Varejao is just going to be a rich man's Scot Pollard. I'm not too impressed by sideshow bob when I watch the Cavs. He seems to be really good at flopping though.

Larry Hughes is sideshow bob right?

But AV is gonna be good if he can put some muscle on. Plus you don't trade a big for a small.
