A lot of people won't want to give up Andrea, but it seems like he's struggling a lot and regressing to an extent. There's no real improvement this year. Miami get 2 players to put into the starting line up
Blount is a crappy player, but he needs to be added to make this deal work (I would rather have Udonis Haslem, but I don't think Miami would give him up that easily). Blount's contract ends at the end of the 09-10 season, just in time for the summer of '10 bonzanza for Colangelo. Plus he could be used as bait after next as an expiring contract.
Banks becomes a back-up PG for TJ.
and Toronto's own selection could turn out to be Thabeet from UConn, Hibbert from Georgetown, Arthur from Kansas.. or a pick that could be packaged for a bigman (Blount + 1st rounder to Philly for Dalembert?)
so, next season, you could see a line-up of:
C - Dalembert
PF - Bosh
SF - Beasley
SG - Parker
PG - Ford
Miami wouldnt trade the Beasly pick for Calderon
alone, nevermind throwing in more. Ppl are overvalueing Calderon
in trades, his value is going down by the min as his stats do, as of right now he has played great for about 1/4th of his career, its not enough to give up a player of Beasley's potential, who will come in the league and IMMEDIATELY and yes i mean right from the 1st game, be a better player then Bargs, and potentially a perenial all star to put beside Wade. No, i think Miami wouldnt do this.
Also, being in last gives them 25% chance at 1st pick, right? Why every post i see assumes they will win it? 75% of the time they dont.
