Default Is Stro going to be happy in Memphis?

I heard Stomile might not be all that happy about returning to Memphis.
What if Stromile Swift insists on a trade ASAP..... Who would you trade
to match his $5.2mil salary?

Stro is a young athletic player who pretty good at offensive rebounds
and blocks. He could be a nice backup at both forward spots, but
who do you give up to get him?

I think if Jerry West really wants him off his team quickly, Cook and Mckie could do it. I think he will get traded at some point. Mihm can be included also in some sort of deal.

Just Mihm should be able to make West pull the trigger

what happend to stro anyways? he was a real nice player before he went to houston...if somehow we do get our hands on him, do you think he would be a good fit because houston's stro wasnt any better than mihm.

Even Memphis' stro wasn't better than Mihm, he peaked at 10ppg around 6 boards n mihm type blocks... he would give us an athletic 4 but if LO plays that position

If there is a way to get Stro, I'd go for it. L.A. has people to put it in the basket, but could use some help on the boards and block shots.

Smush
Bryant
Odom
Radman
Brown/Stro

I like the sound of that.

no no no. Stromile is a softer Kwame, but a better shot blocker. Weak offense, no D against centers (decent against PFs). Rather keep Mihm.

Swift isnt worth even talking about. We already have 3 centers, and we're looking to get rid of one.

Stro is no mo,

he has a couple of good seasons in memphis but as soon as he went to the rockets people saw his true talent:

Running
Dunking

Anything else? the man has no value besides his contract which wont Expire for another 4 seasons. I would take Kwame over him any day. matter of fact Ill even take lorenzen wright who has proven to be solid.
