Would trade be worth it for Spurs/Pelicans? DeColo, Bonner, Green for Tyreke Evans
 
I don't know if New Orleans would do it, but they might want Bonner, they might like Green, and they might like De Colo.

I think Evans would fit in as starting Guard, or main backup to Kawhi and Ginobili's replacement.


HE IS ATHLETIC!

O. K.

You can all trash me now.

Here is an article claiming the Pelicans would like to trade Evans or Gordon. I would rather have Evans.

Here is a Quote; "if the Pelicans front office can find a taker for either Evans or Gordon, it might be addition by subtraction."

If that is their attitude, they might like Green for a very reasonable contract, and two players in the last year of their contracts.

They had a chance at him in free agency, but signed Manu and Tiago. Plus we lose Green's shooting and defense, Bonners size and shooting. I liked us getting him in free agency, but now it's just too late. He handles the rock, slashes to the lane, would probably be a better defender in our system, but is not a particularly a good shooter. But in the end, each sides picked different directions.

Here is an article about Evan's defense.

ok, basically is green for him... bonner didnt play that much when other bigs are healthy... and with diaw strong play and adition of ayres is fairly expendable... decolo fall off the rotation anyway...

questions about evans: has mid range jumper (or mechanics to develope under chip E.)? can cut to the basket with eggs err energy and dunk or draw fouls on a consistent basis? can handle the rock off the dribble or dish better than green or decolo? thanks!

I liked him from back in his high school days as a blue chip prospect. Had an awesome rookie year but has gone down in stats each year since. Even with trading Bonner.........I might look for another player at his contract price.

Yeah, not sure if he fits our program.

MRJONESIII 01-20-14 07:22 PM

I think he'd fit well,a ball handler with that size and strength and ability to get to the rim with ferocity, plus doesn't seem to have a bad attitude. Oh yeah and he's young and athletic. I would take him over Green all day, but it's all just wishful thinking.

No he cant shoot the three ball and does not move well without the ball so he wont be good for the team. Personally I think Gordan Hayward is a much better fit.

And for who and what in return?

How do you know he doesn't move well without the ball? Could it be the coaching or lack there of he's been getting, or maybe not the right system for him. So if the coach runs a play for him coming off a staggered screen for a wide open 17' jumper and he practices it all the time.... Why couldn't he move without the ball any other time. Tony Parker couldn't shoot the ball for ish, now look at him. These guys are pros for a reason. They just have to learn how to want to be coached and practice the craft necessary for them to be effective ball players.

word is that Hayward is looking for a max contract when rookie deal is up. I don't think he has much more potential than Evans, and Evans is locked in at 10 mill or so per season. I would much rather take a Tyreke Evans, who people are kinda giving up on and turn him into a Spur than a Gordon Hayward, who thinks he deserves to be paid like one of the best players in the game right now but hasn't proven crap.

interesting salary on some players...

Evans' deal is I think is more closer to 11 million per season but whatever. The guy is getting worse every year in the league. He would kill the salary cap here for a while. Even though I liked Tyreke long ago............I will pass! Oh! 11.8 million this year?! HECK NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw an article that said he was specifically not asking for the max deal. But he still as not re-signed with Utah. Most likely he wants around 12 million. The kid is getting better every year so he might be worth it.

Anyway I think the spurs should try to get him. To be honest I don't really care about the cap. This probably our last chance to win. We will never see another championship in our lifetime, so we have to go all out.
