What is the big deal with this trade? There is a huge difference in salaries for the next 3 seasons. Mason Plumlee was good for Nets last season when Lopez was gone and he is now the best Blazers big man. Muhammed was considered a great prospect not so long ago and he had great numbers lately. I honestly believe this trade might hunt us when I come back, lol.
Adam, Don't say I manipulated you. You are one of those GMs who knows exactly what he wants and will do it even if the other thinks differently like Whiteside so don't lie.
Not manipulation but you send trade rape like Glenn!
Well, I wish I was smoking Blue Dream but I don't smoke at work or in my house and I don't have my license, so I'm sober besides my Adderall.
Were you in the chat room last night? I don't think so, but I genuinely dont remember. Bowie said Shabazz and Jrue had the same value, I didn't agree, I like Bazz but Jrue when healthy is pretty solid. I got a PM in the chat from Adam that said something along the lines of, "I thought of a trade while talking to Bowie. Jrue for Shabazz and Plumlee?". I tried to counter but nah, I sent him on facebook the same deal with Rakeem and his response very quickly was yes, I made sure, I sent "can I post it?" and he said yeah. Then, while I'm typing up the deal, he was sending me FB messages about why he liked it so much.
I like Adam, he's a cool guy and I know he knows his basketball. I think, I'm obviously not positive since I'm not him, but I THINK that he was being very facetious or however you spell it... He mentioned it in the global chat and I think he said "lol" or something like that because he doesn't agree.
If there is something I've missed, I'm sorry, but from what I know you didn't get the post. I respect my boy Sam Bowie 1000%, he's awesome and he's helped me fix this team, and I respect Adam 1000%, I love what he's done to Utah. I don't think a) Sam would try to trick Adam, or b) Adam would be tricked. They both have strong opinions from what I know and stick to them.
P.S. He drafted Mudiay, a future stud in a good system.
I mean I like the trade but if the TC doesn't whatever. Jrues value will be higher later and I can just trade him then.
I feel you, I was just trying to aid KH's ignorance to the situation.
I really don't see any issue with this deal. Shabazz had a great year and was better than Wiggins until he picked it up in December and January. Then Shabazz got injured. Plumlee has been very productive too. He hasn't got an offensive game to save his life, but that wouldn't stop him from taking the DeAndre Jordan/ Tyson Chandler / Timofey Mozgov role on a team. In a good situation he can have a lot of value. I accept.
