Couldn't disagree more.... He's been great for this team. He's willing to bang with guys much bigger than him and isn't afraid to foul out either. No doubt he's helped guys like Gray, Amir and Davis too. It's not like he's winning us games, so no reason to cut him for that either.

Yeah agreed, this one makes no sense. The only other player that should maybe go before Carter is Butler. Magloire has done a good job for this team in limited playing time.

magloire is the man on this team, the enforcer

Honestly, I think this could be to try and get a serious trade done. This is the best time to do the trade if you are trading for future value. But what for?!

As mentioned above, we already didn't need him when we signed him so why cut him now?

We have a logjam of young bigs, so there is no prize in bringing up a young big (ie. Alabi) unless we REALLY think he might have earned a slot. I doubt that's it.

Then you have PG and between caldy and bayless, they would both net a decent value. So if a trade is for one of them, for a new PG, it can't be a "small" move.

So we likely aren't getting a new PG unless it's a GOOD one (so I rule this out).

Derozan or Barbosa would not go in a "small' move. Derozan you can still sell potential with and Barbosa could be a great 6th man off the bench for a team eyeing the championship.

Then you get down to other guys like Linas (who I would be fucking shocked if BC traded all things considered) and James Johnson (a guy who's stock is rising right now and is still on contract for nothing?). I don't think either of them go.

I don't think they want to do Magloire it would be a PR nightmare because I bet he wants to retire as a raptor so he can get into the press box. I'm sure that was very well understood by all parties for his time here with us.

So yeah we could trade some garbage for some garbage, but Aaron Gray or Forbes? Seems the likeliest of candidates for a "small" trade but Gray or Forbes shouldn't be netting us 2 for 1, so why do we need the roster space?

I don't see what this is other than BC thinks he has a good chance to get someone decent to play here and that person can be our new attraction for other FA's and players this offseason when we have money to burn.

If he isn't trying to do something bigger, I will be very disappointed.
