Does everyone forget that the trade deadline has passed?


I'm all for trading Jose in the offseason if a better replacement or prospect (read: Kyrie Irving) is secured. But if not, just trading Jose with no replacement in check is idiotic. We go from a team with a starting PG to a team with a gaping hole, and teams will consider our desparation to fill the spot in trades.

Right now we could probably easily get a guy like Jonny Flynn in the offseason (especially since Rubio is reportedly coming over this offseason). If we just dump Jose first, then they will want a lot more for Flynn, since we desparately need someone to run the point.

That is why dumping Bargnani for nothing is also ill advised. We become like so many other NBA teams with no reliable player at C.
