Default Small Forwards

the raps small forwards are Jason kapono, jamario moon and joey graham all 3 have been useless this year. i believe if we going to point figures on someone on the raps it has to be on these three.. i can see anyone of those being traded but the problem i see is that all their values are really low and dont think the raps would get much in return.. J/K being the most expensive of the three, but i see jamario with a small contract can be traded and might have the most interest from other teams and for Joey G i c him with the lowest value because he has not played a lot and when he dose he hasn't done anything special...even though we have barganni starting at the 3 he is 4/5 and not really a small forward... i personally think we should trade for a player like Trevor Ariza he would fit in because he play the 3 and he can play DEFENCE which all of the above dont know how to play!!!!! Ariza a guy who would not want to shoot alot.

I don't think LA is willing to trade him. He is a good player that I thnk LA is high on. They think he can become a good player, and I don't think any of our 3's can land Trevor here

what do you personally think we should trade in return? Bargnani? Obviously, if Ariza is a better SF than any of those 3, we can't trade Moon for Ariza ...

I'd love to get Ariza but we're not going to get him for our trash and LA is quite high on him. If LA needed a shooter, we have J/K but they already have Vujacic. And Bargs has more upside than Ariza.

getting salmons is like accepting your fiancee back after she admitted at the altar, in front of your relatives and friends, that she cheated on you with all your friends ...

Lol... if we got Ariza here people would hate him within a month when he couldn't make a shot. Ditto for Salmons who's a complete ballhog with no bball sense.

We have to fix the SYSTEM... and stop blaming the players.

The one SF I would love here is Harpring. If we want to add toughness and a defensive type player, Harpring fits the bill. We could conceivably deal Kapono for him.

And TO, the players deserve the blame as well. Sorry.

I would take Harpring without question.

Yes, the players DO deserve some blame as well.... but people are kidding themselves if they think that bringing in other marginal players is the answer to our probs.

I'd still like Nocioni or Hermann. but all in all, it's the same story, you gotta give up something to get something - and we don't have a lot of assets.. so I think unfortanately, we're gonna have the same team all season long.

The only asset that could be worth anything would be Kapono and that to a championship calibre team looking to add a shooter. Problem is Kapono's worth isn't much, possibly a second round pick or a fringe player.

I think you undervalue kapono by quite a lot. A player like him, when properly utilized, can be golden for a contender. Look at the impact korver had in Utah, they had a huge jump in wins after that trade went. And Kapono is a better player in almost every way.
