I understand your point but your Tim Duncan scenario is just silly and a reach.

Plus, it fails to acknowledge Tim/Yi's side of things cause no matter how you slice it the NBA is a business. Tim/Yi has do what's best for his interest just as well as the Spurs/Bucks.

I disagree entirely, and each were in the same position, ie draftee, with the same rights etc etc. Please do not tell me it is a reach in Tim Duncan's situation now, look back to 1997, and if this were to occur, how would you remedy it?

Its business LOL!! You use that for Yi, however it also applies to Milwaukee. They are in the business of WINNING BASKETBALL GAMES, not selling cans of green tea with Yi's face on the front.

By not trading him on draft night the Bucks can not trade for a fellow rookie. At this point the Bucks would be able to move Yi for another player drafted this year until December.
You got a little closer eventually, but December is five months away. Your argument was about how dumb the Bucks are because they won't be able to trade for a rookie for 150 days, when really the rule is 30 days. That's a huge difference considering one is next month, and the other is during the season. Doesn't matter though, Bucks aren't trading him.

It's a reach cause Tim Duncan was a four year college player. If he was uncomfortable outside of the Virgin Islands he wouldn't have played at Wake Forest for four years.

I understand that. I just fail to see how drafting a guy who said from day one he won't run with you and not trading him ASAP help a team.

Rookies sign in June/July. 90 days (what I was thinking at first) would put the trade date in September/October. No teams is going to trade their promising rookie during training camp. So it would be November/December that a team would be willing to part with a rook.

Even with the trade date in August no team would trade a rookie worth trading for that early. He wouldn't have even gotten time with the real coaching staff at that point.

I don't think he's star material either but on the subject of defense and weight, Bruce Bowen isn't a big guy either and young Pippen was very skinny. Also, look at Tayshaun Prince. Perimeter stoppers don't need bulk.

He won't be able to stop perimeter players who have a post game though. Lebron, Artest, Simmons, Q.Rich - there are a fair amount of them.

to not being able to stop Q-Rich and Simmons in his career. No1 can stop Artest or LeBron in the post so that's retarded as well
