OK, I will take off my Jose Supporter hat for a second...

Yes, if trading or amnestying him means upgrade to the PG position (which Deron clearly is), I'd do it. I won't feel particularly good doing it, but I'd do it.

Hat goes back on...

However, simply dumping him or trading him hoping Bayless or someone of his caliber will make this team successful is pure folly. To me, when healthy, Jose is a top 10-15 PG in the league. Consequently, the replacement'd better be in place and it'd better be good...
