i gave this some serious thought about a week ago.
i remember people asked this at the start of the season and i was all for it... i loved what he brought to the team and loved his game. i thought it was a fabulous pick up and we wouldnt need MOPete.
while we still dont miss Mo at all, IMO. i really think Kapono has ZERO worth on this squad now.
sure he can hit a jumper better then most, but he never plays! he gets 5 minutes a game...
if anyone needs to get traded, its him.
his role is obsolete on this team...
Parker and Delfino do what he does, but do it better.
Moon actually can play D.

Kapono is a great shooter, but is burried on the depth chart.
unfortunately, i dont see him playing more than 10 minutes a game for the rest of the season.
we can get some value for him, but we've gotta strike while the iron's hot and trade him now.
he is not worth the price we paid for him, cause he just doesnt see enough play time.
