This is from Hoopsworld, so take it with a grain of salt. But if it's true we would have been improved and we would have saved some money.Apparently earlier this season BC almost traded Joey to GS for Marco Belinelli, but Nellie decided to keep the Italian.

Bellinelli looked good before his injury but we don't/didn't need anymore soft jumpshooting types. I'd still consider it but I'm happy with what Graham gives us now.

If it was offered earlier in the season though, I'd be all over it and I'm surprised BC didn't pull the trigger if this is true. It's probably not.

I would do it as well in a heartbeat. So would Colangelo, but Nelson balked at doing it. He's a smart man.As much as graham is playing well now he's not a viable long term starter in this league.I think Belinelli has way more upside. That is a no brainer deal from our perspective. Unfortunately it is on their end as well. lol

that would have been sweet.belli was a starter and only lost the spot due to the injury.the three games prior to his injury,nellie had marco on the opposing star sg/sf and shut em down and nearly got into brawls because of it.......joey roboto has played well lately so consistency from joey will be the determining factor if this deal not going down will hurt.so far joeys M.O is one good game then 3 bad or 4 bad, repeat process.

I agree, i have no delusions about Joey. He's good at times but quite dumb and inconsistent.Belinelli is agressive at both ends and has way more basketball iq!
