the math works and NY would do it, I think. Unless you believe Kwame is going to improve, then it's a trade worth considering.
no way...i dont think its worth the risk...francis has 3 years and a ton of cash left on his contract...next year we will have a lot of cap space to make real moves and i dont think francis is worth the risk...cant really see him playing well along with kobe...francis hogs the ball way too much which is why he has bounced from team to team...hes not a triangle player...he needs to be running the court...he will also be demanding the ball as much as kobe which is also a bad thing...kwame has upside and lakers have no big men..easy choice to not trade for him
Yea, Francis has a negative rap. But, in his defense, he wanted out of Orlando badly because he didnt want to be in a rebuilding situation. He was not happy there. Houston loved him, but they had the opportunity to trade him for a disgruntled TMac...they had to do it.
he only has 2 years on his contract. He is running out of opportunities to prove he is a winner. I think he really wants to win. He's a big PG who could fit nicely in Phil's system. It's really an attitude issue.
plus, I'm not a believer in Kwame's upside. I'm afraid what we see is what we get.
i dont know a guy in the league whose value has dropped so quickly...he was an up and comming star with the rockets and lets not forget he was even trading for TMAC..which shows his value a few years ago...now no one but the knicks would take him...his value is below even role players at this point
It isnít a matter of is Brown going to get better. He got better as last session went on. His name was even tossed about for most improved player. This thread is way out in left field. ďThe franchiseĒ like a previous bloger said he is a falling star. He left the Rockets and they got better. He was shipped out of Orlando and the Magic got better and went on a long winning streak. He is a shoot first guard WE DONíT NEED THAT ON THE LAKERS. I will say it now and some may not like it but I would be willing to bet we are looking at next yearís roster. We maybe able to swing a trade for Chris or Cook but I would not hold my breath and Iím fine with that we have a young team with a good amount of talent to develop.
