The games Bargs shot is not falling, you keep giving Ed 30+ minutes. I mean, think about it, if the Raps had played Ed more tonight, there is a possibility they keep their momentum going and win the game.

No need to make a trade for redundant players or bad contracts. Just get talent we need in a trade. If we can't, then trade for an expiring or move Bargs to the bench.
I agree with your assessment completely, but I just want Bargs gone asap. While he may be better than okafor / chandler, trading him will guarantee him not playing for the raps. For some reason dwayne casey can't get it through his thick skull that Bargs is not a star player a.k.a "a hub".

As long as dwayne is coaching this team he will give Bargs 30+ minutes a game. I like casey as a coach don't get me wrong, but for some reason he does not know how to handle Bargnani properly, Bargs is a cancer to this team and as long as he is playing starters minutes we will never get anywhere.
