bigger risk than i anticipated.

It's not a real no trade clause, but a function of the type of contract we gave him. Eric Pincus wrote about it, it's a little confusing for me.

I think Davis could end up hurting Hill's chances of getting a huge paycheck. Davis might not have the same kind of motor as Hill, but he's a better shot blocker and still a proficient rebounder. Davis could end up being the bargain of the summer and could be the young guy we give a contract to.


Hill and Davis are redundant, IMO. I am betting that Jordan will be shopped this trade deadline just as he was last year when he was rumored to be going to Brooklyn. A contending team may need another productive Big; GS is a team that comes to mind. If

Who are you quoting? :man3: :man3:

Also, Hill's contract has a de facto no trade clause in it so we can't trade him without his permission. If he's shopped, he'll only go to the place he wants to go.


I was quoting you, bit I've been posting on my phone and at times, it has a mind of its own. On topic, I'm aware that Jordan would have to approve where he would go; more than likely, it would have to be a contender that would have a need for him and where Jordan still has an opportunity to receive minutes. I'm just pointing out the possibility of moving him which I think we will explore when he's eligible to trade, IMO.

I figured, I was just giving you a hard time. :man10:

I know we'll explore a trade when the time comes, I'm just not sure who it would be to. I don't think they'll move him unless it's for a stud and who would give us a stud for him?

Well, he's going to be our anchor. The one thing he's got to do is stay out of foul trouble. His effort and nose for rebounding are excellent, but he's a little small to be an anchor. Still a decent shot blocker however.

It's going to be a good thing going from him to Davis at Center every night. They won't be the tallest guys, but they'll work harder than most and defend the rim nicely. They're both very good complements to Boozer and Randle. We're going to have a voracious rebounder on the floor at all times. Nice!
