Default Tayshaun & Gerald Are Available?

According to sources, Dumars is really listening for offers for Prince and the Bobcats are looking to see if anyone's interested in Wallace.

Are we or should we be interested in either?

like Prince a lot and I think he would be awesome.

However, I wouldn't be willing to mortgage the future of the team to get him though. Especially when we have already possess a player in Moon who has several of the same attributes and is the same age.

Tayshawn to Toronto would me my favourite move ever. But like Acie said it depends on who do we have to give them.

Prince is definately more proven and I have no idea why he'd be out there on the trading block. Everyone gets shut down vs Boston you cant blame the guy too much, before that series he was shooting like 60% from the field in the playoffs.

I'd take either in a heartbeat. Geralds work ethic and tenacity cant be questioned from looking at how far hes come from being a scrub to what he is now, the problem is hes often injured because of his high flying abilities. Maybe playing him at sf will solve that a bit.

I'd still rather have Tayshaun though.

I prefer Wallace. Younger and more willing to drive. Tayshaun has finals exp and can shoot better than Gerald though..Both are quite similar.

the deal breaker here is that Prince is an iron man.
wallace is always injured.
in the long run, i'll prefer to take the guy who is going to play.
Prince FTW.

Prince is a NBA champion, more playoff exprience, better ball handling, better shooter, better one on one defender, more durable...?

Wallace is better dunker, better rebounder...?

The other thing is Wallace may be a year or two yonger, but I'm sure his body will start breaking down before Prince's.

Wallace would probably be easier to get. Tayshaun would cost the farm.

I'd take either of them, but can we really give them much?

I don't think either team needs TJ.

I also don't see why Charlotte would trade Wallace if they really really want to make the playoffs next year.

If Detroit pulls a Melo deal including Chauncey, they'd need Ford no?
