Grizz Acquire Iguodala, 1st Round Pick from GS

Recommended Posts

I'm predicting Houston will find a way to make a deal ... they will need Iggy the most (vs Kawhi or Lebron) and Iggy fits there because he does the off-ball dirty work.  His defense is still elite ... and offensively the ball doesn't stick in his hands.  With two ball-dominant stars ... Iggy would be the kind of player that Harden and Westbrook need if they want to seriously contend.

Man, there has never been a better time to have an asset like AI than right now.  I would move slowly, too.  This offseason has been an arms race and teams are throwing out first round picks right now more than ever out of necessity.  It's currently a seller's market.  We got a FRP and the 2 million bucks we needed to give to Avery Bradley just to take AI so that GSW could make a move.  Someone will find a way to get MEM a quality FRP or other high-value "rebuilding" assets to get AI between now and the trade deadline.

Hou has our 2nd so maybe we could just it returned . top 6 pick and two nice 2nds in the next draft wouldnt be so bad.

Barton is a pipe dream. The Nuggets aren't trading one their better players for a 35 year old Iggy. That doesn't make them a better team at all. We'd be the ones to give up a pick for Barton.

I agree, unless they want to get off his contract before Jamal Murray big contract starts Next year. I don't know any other reason why they would do the deal.

They would do the deal because Iggy is a multi time champion, a finals MVP, and one of the best defenders in the entire NBA. Come West Confernce Finals time and you're trying to defend Kawhi Leonard or Lebron James with Jerami Grant and Paul Millsap and that's a good invitation to start your Summer early. If you want to win a championship in the West you'd better have a plan for guarding two of the best players of all time, and that will include someone like Barton or Beasley to do it.

I am curious why Portland is so quite? I see them having some interest in Igoudala. They are able to submit a pretty decent offer, for instance Whiteside + Bazemore + FRP  (lottery protected for 2years) for Igoudala, Crowder, Hill and Plumlee.

Cause they probably would rather have the guys they traded for than our scraps we got from asset collecting

Scraps is not a fair characterization at all.

Yeah. If Iggy was a free agent this year, he would not have been a priority for hardly anyone and would not have gotten close to 17 million. Maybe one team just says "ah what the hell" and unloads something valuable for him. But I think this bidding war is imaginary.

Ha-ha... :) 

Seriously, does Dame - CJ - Iggy - Crowder - Collins/Nurkic look really scary only to me?

I think your right PJ. I could see that happening

If you look in the trade machine there just aren't that many playoff teams that can trade for Iggy they don't have the contracts to make it work if I'm the Grizz I'm trying to do CLee and Jackson for Iggy or see if they can work a deal for Tony Snell in Detroit and a 2nd from them since there's will be better than Dallas's

What's important to remember is anything we get from Iggy (cap space, picks, veteran mentorship) is a plus on top of the GSW pick. The fact that there are teams seriously considering trading for him makes me very optimistic that something will be worked out. We probably won't get a 1st round pick (I think that demand is a negotiating tactic) but we'll get something. We're not in any hurry.

I agree with this.  Whatever we get for him is icing on the cake.  I'm just impatient and want everything done yesterday.

I agree, keep Iggy and Dwight, till we get a quality pick or young player.

We're not going to cut one of our young players to keep Dwight Howard on the team. You really want to cut Grayson Allen or Bruno - or not be able to bring up Harvey or sign Marco - just so we can keep Dwight Howard because there is some small chance he might get us a 2nd round pick at the deadline? That's bad business. Giving up on young players for annoying vets - in a rebuild - is a recipe for disaster. We know who Dwight is. Sure, he might get us 2-3 more wins than Allen/Bruno, but we don't care about wins right now. We care about developing young talent.
