Just curious would you guys trade Eric Bledsoe? Mo and Foye are great off the bench. I know some of you would rather trade Mo but I love his leadership and ability to get instant buckets coming in.

Would've been nice if we couldve went after Demarcus Cousins to rotate in with DJ and Blake but thats a pipedream.

yeah, idk know how people tend to recover from the injury that he has, but if he can resemble the form he was in prior to that (which I have a feeling he will just being around BG's work ethic), his athleticism combined with the knowledge he gains from all the vet guards could be deadly.

btw, fyi he's the only guard that I know of that's blocked lbj.

just keep everyone for now AND LET THEM GEL FCOL,[for crying out loud, i just made that up, lol]

let's just see where we are at at the end of jan., with about 25% of the season played, barring any SERIOUS injuries and see how everyone performs!

If Billups retires EB will be a big plus.

He's 36

I was thinking about this yesterday. I love this guy, and I think he can be really good PG in a couple of years. But we have 3 PGs in the team, and maybe we could get someone good at the draft (SG or F) in exchange? Cuz next year we will probably need a new SG, and someone behind Caron (I don't think Gomes can be that guy). I dunno, it's a hard one if you ask me.

If anything, I would deal Mo since EB has more upside and a lot cheaper.

Nope. Need him as a backup. with Chauncy being a bit older,,we need backups and Eric is going to learn a lot. My vote is to stand pat right now and see if we can builk even more momentum (although i do admit it would be nice to have someone 7 foot tall on the team).

I'll keep him, once CP3 and Billups get a hold of him and take him under their wings. The kids already one of the most athletic guards in the league. Combine that with CP3 and Billups showing him a thing or two. He's going to be a beast.

I'd like to keep him, but I acknowledge that there are holes in our team that we could trade one of our guards to fill. At the very least, we should bring him back to see just how much he's improved (and showcase his value) before shipping him out based on LAST year's value.

IF (big if) he can do what Mo or Foye is doing for us right now, we'd be better off with his contract over either of theirs.

Bledsoe imo is going to be a great player for us, especially growing under Billups and Paul, so like everyone stated above, unless it was a great deal, we need to keep EB.

Anyone is worth trading if the deal is right and makes us a better team. However like most people here I'd rather trade Mo than Bledsoe, simply because Bledsoe has more upside, cheaper and we didn't trade him to New Orleans for a reason.

I can see the Clipps trading Bledsoe and Foye for Milsap. Clippers need some offense from a big off the bench. Utah needs youth at the guard position and they have too many bigs. I think we have to make this trade if was an option.

I'd rather trade Bledsoe and DJ for Al Jefferson. Milsap is a great player but he's undersized for a 4, and he's too slow to play the 3.

You don't trade Bledsoe unless you get a bonafied SG to start. Looking around the league still under the rookie contract, I don't really see anyone that fits that mold.

Billups would not accept coming off the bench. He still has at least another year or two before he accepts a bench role. Our guard rotation is set, and stronger than 90% of the league. All that's left now is the gelling process, which seems to already have picked up some momentum. Hopefully all the days off have been put to good use in building chemistry

Pretty sure going out with an ewe is illegal in the US.

And, no, I would not trade Bledsoe. At least not until I've had some time to see how he fits in on the current squad.

it really depends on who we'd get back... i'd honestly trade bledsoe for cousins. as i'd trade him for labron, durant, and a lot of other people in this league. he isn't "unmovable" but i would love to see him in a clippers uni for a long time cuz i think the games gonna slow down for the kid.

nope.

chauncey billups is obviously not a long-term solution. eric would make a SOLID backup to CP and a legit fill-in if CP ever went down with injury. the question is whether or not we trade mo williams. i think there's a better chance of billups resigning with us this offseason (if things go well) than mo resigning as a backup. that being said, its either roll with mo for the rest of this season and watch him sign with another team next year, or trade him once bledsoe gets back.

(i see bledsoe turning into something like a robert pack)

but the question remains, what position would we trade mo for?

Bledsoe may end up being very good in time, but right now I can't see him playing significant minutes for a playoff team. He is wildly inconsistent, can't shoot, lacks court presence and has several other shortcomings that are admittedly common for rookie point guards. So, I would of course trade him for the right player but I wouldn't give him away. He is a solid prospect that has the potential to develop into a quality player.

idk if he cant shoot. he was arguably better than john wall at kentucky but came off the bench. we gave up a first rd pick to get him, so if anyone would get traded it would be foye or williams. we just need to let the season play out and go from there.

We gotta think about this as well, I'm not sure if Foye has this season only left on his contract or another 2 years, but I think this is his last year, which means more minutes and responsibility for Bledsoe next year. Foye isn't the greatest player, but he's a quality player to come off any teams bench.

Chauncey may or may not re-sign here. I'm guessing we'll have to wait until the season is completely over to see where or what he decides to do. Chauncey has made a crap ton of cash over the years and could retire and make it to the Hall of Fame no problem. Leaving us with 2 voids on our team, a starting SG and a backup SG/PG. Mo Williams in all honesty could be given amnesty at year's end due to his high salary, potential issues with team chemistry and the need to free up more cap space for Blake and CP3's potential extensions.

Bledsoe right now was probably looked at as an Oh **** option if CP3 bolts in 2 years, and a valuable back up option if we decide to part ways with Chauncey, Mo and/or Foye ( or all friggin 3 ) at the end of the season.

I'd honestly explore potential trade destinations for Mo Williams. It'd be interesting if the Hornets would consider taking on Mo Williams' contract, not sure how their payroll is but Jarret Jack isn't a very good PG, and is at best on level with Mo right now. Okafor or Carl Landry would be solid options.

A scoring point guard has more value than a passing point guard on the second unit, since most teams need more scoring punch on the second unit. So, I would not trade Mo (or at least not for something really good). He will generate a lot more offense than Bledsoe as a backup.

Bledsoe isn't a pass first style PG. Did you watch any games last year? He does everything.

I think that Mo's contract is an expiring one after this season which makes him more attractive after the season. Don't trade bledsoe, to much potential. Dont forget the influence Cp3 had on Darren Collison, he could have the same impact on Ebled

Depends which part of the US you live in.

It was him or Gordon basically and the Clips went with this kid seems like he's special..Wait till the deadline see how the 3 guards work off the bench, then MAYBE if the right deal come's trade MO. CP3 made Darren Collison, same can happen with Bledsoe.

I don't think it was ever him or gordon, I think it was either him + gordon, or just gordon, and we were able to convince them to take only gordon

I really like Bledsoe, Mo Williams, and Foye, all three of whom I can see the Clippers potentially trading. Even though I would prefer that we keep all three of them, I think that we might need to trade one of them for a solid big man.

I want to try Bledsoe and Mo combo and look to deal Randy Foye. Bledsoe has a similar skill set to Foye while being smaller but more explosive. With Mo shooting and Bled slashing should be athe dangerous combination.

this is what i would trade mo.. have bledsoe behind paul... have foye back up billups...

the ideal situation is to have billups come off the bench and lead the 2nd group (making mo expendable). the offense with CP at the 1 and Billups at the 2 seems to lack identity since we have 2 guys who are used to being distributors, and thus a spike in inefficiency. the problem is that i doubt billups would be cool with the role of a bench guy.

problem is, the only teams that truly need a pg wear purple and piss. that's not happening.

Haha well said, and exactly Billups will not come off the bench. I mean look at what he's accomplished can't blame him. I think that's why we traded Gordon. There's no way CB came of the bench

WHAT? Where's the source? Why would we want Granger?

Anyway's I think if we sign Bogans we have the flexibility to trade any of the three guards for whatever position we need. (Back up center or back up power forward)

Shocked ... If we get Granger for Mo ... Partyman

PG : Paul/Bledsoe

SG : Billups/ Butler

SF : Granger/Butler

PF: Blake/Gomes

C: Deandre/Reggie

That's a very very good nine man rotation.

Actually, so far we are doing quite well in the offense efficiency department according to these sites:

it makes zero sense to trade for granger when priorities tell us we need a legit big man. next on that priority list is a legit shooting guard.

having only a one-trick pony who cant rebound at center (dj), backed up by cook, and then evans (@ those times when we really wanna go small) - that's not a good situation.

Another wing and big. Joel Pryz and Bogans would make so much sense for us, even Ralph Lawler said he agreed with me 100%. At least sign one of the two and then trade Bledsoe or Mo for the other need.

If we want an excellent defensive big we could trade Bledsoe to Chicago for Omer Asik , don't now if they'd bite though.
