Wallace & Morrison Being Shopped??

According to Yahoo!

Quote:
Larry Brown talked Michael Jordan out of trading forward Gerald Wallace over the summer, but that hasnít stopped him from shopping him in the preseason, sources say. Charlotte was hoping to showcase Adam Morrison enough in the preseason to find a taker for him.
Bad move by Jordan I think, should look to move J-Rich.

It's a shame regarding his contract because he's a helluva player the exact type we need right now at SF with no guarantees from Moon, Kapono or Graham. A little concerned with the concussions he's had too, but when healthy is a awesome player to watch.

are you kidding snooch?
J-Rich is their best player... and while his stock is super high at the moment and will get them a good player(s) in return, the guy is on course for another HUGE season this year.
he's a do-it-all type player who can also play D. he can shoot lights out, take it to the rack... he's awesome.
they'd be foolish to trade J-Rich.

From ESPN

Quote:
Scouting report: Though a fantastic leaper, Richardson isn't a good ball handler and tends to jump off of two feet when he drives, allowing defenders he's beaten to catch up to him. As a result, Richardson goes to the rim less every year. Four years ago he took over half his shots in the immediate basket area; that's gone down every year to last year's 39.5 percent, and his shooting percentage on those shots has fallen every year, too.

Instead, he uses his athleticism on his jump shots. Few players get more elevation, so he can rise up and release over almost any defender. Though he has good size for his position he doesn't post up often, with most of his at-the-basket chances coming on fast breaks and offensive boards.

Richardson's defense was hardly spectacular; in fact at times it was abominable. He's not particularly quick laterally and his off-ball help defense is just a rumor, save for the occasional spectacular block. He helps on the boards and nobody will post him up given his size, but I suspect Larry Brown will demand a lot more from him than his previous coaches.
J Rich has tones more value than Crash, By trading him Charlotte could get wing replacement and and upgrade at Center. There is no effecient inside scoring on that team, everything is wing driven and as there record shows, that dont work.

That being said, too bad we had nothing available to offer for him, cause wallace would be beutiful on this team, I wouldnt mind Kaps playing the 2 with Crash playing SF.

where did you find that horrible scouting report...?
what espn failed to say was that J-Rich's shooting percentage has increased every year (with the exeption of an injury plagued 2006)... his 3pt % has increased, FG% has increased, and his FT% has increased.
does espn even know that Jrich was the best 3point shooter in the league last season? he led the league with 243 treys - tops in the NBA.

^^Career 37% from the line, last season got it all the way to 40%..

Not saying he's not a very good player, would love to see him here, but it would make more sense for Charlotte to trade him because they could get more back for him.

Jrich and Wallace are alot alike, One should be traded to upgrade other areas.

are you dissing 40% shooting from 3point range????
40% 3pt percentage is damn good.... especially when you hit 3 of them each game.
you wanna know what bargnani's 3pt % was last season?

Kapono and Graham work out on the trade machine for gerald wallace but i think his contract is too ugly. he still has 4 years remaining while graham is in a contract year and Kapono has 2 yrs remaining.

Charlotte to me has no direction right now. They seem to be intent on making the playoffs as an 8th seed or so, I don't see them having the core for more... with this lineup they'll be stuck in mediocrity for a while. They need a franchise young guy to build around, Okafor isn't good enough... so I would blow things by trading Wallace and JRich for picks and young players and go back to the lottery. But then again, Charlotte won't be able to sustain the team if they do that. Jordan's dumb.

I actually think Bargnani would be a great choice for them, he'd work nicely as a building block with Okafor. I think the moment for a trade has passed though... in the summer I would've gone for somethinig like Bargs and TJ for JRich and Dudley, in which case the hole at C wouldn't be as bad because Rasho would be there, and we could use our draft pick on Hibbert or something, looking to the future. Caldy, JRich, Moon, Bosh, Rasho, with Parker, Kapono, Dudley, and our pick off the bench, would've been really nice. Charlotte gets TJ, Wallace, Bargs, Okafor, and probably trades Felton for something else. Nice young team.

couple things:
1. why give tj and Bargs for j rich, when we refused tj for crash straight up???
2. dont underestimate felton, have u seen him? hes better than tj MUCH anyone who knows anything picks felton over tj, better and cheaper and less selfish, and actualy scores when he slashes.
