I am really shocked as to why most don't like the hypothetical Jaric/Ely/Dooling for JC/Fizer deal? Marko Jaric is a hidden treasure. He is no superstar or anything but he would be a much better fit as starting SG than Crawford. He is bigger, stronger, better defensively, and more efficient. I really think Kirk and Marko would be a very solid backcourt to go with Tyson and Eddy. Throw in a vet SF like Eric Williams this summer with the MLE and a high draft choice(Childress,Drejer,Iguodala,etc) along with Davis,JYD, and Gill. As for Dooling we would have half of year to see how he could do as a backup PG, if it does not work out just let him walk and pick up a vet like Damon Jones from Milwaukee or someone similiar.

No way

Jaric has no star-potential. He is limited in his athleticism. He is Peja without the deadly outside shooting.

I never said he had star potential. It is not necessary to have 5 stars on the floor. He is a very solid complimentary player just like Kirk is. This team is building built around 2 stars in Eddy and Tyson. Find the right role players around those 2. Jaric very well could be one.

The ****ing point is if you're going to trade production you get some back.

Jamal is a big time player and you trade him for bench/role players?

What kind of backwards thinking is that?

the problem is

at this point in time, neither Eddy and Tyson are looking like the "locks-to-become" stars that we all thought they would be. Two solid backcourt players with a headcase center, an injury prone power forward, and a glut at the 3 make for the worst record in the NBA.

So to sum up this trade. drooling, fizer, and ely will be let go when their contracts expire. So we are trading JC of jaric, who is a fine 6th or 7th man but jc is are leading scorer and a starter and we are not trading him for a bench player. If the paper clips want jc they are going to have to give us a starter in exchange who scores around 17 ppg, period.

a glut of 9th-man-at-best talent at the 3, no less. :rolleyes: Silly me to think Pippen/ERob would be able to give us at least mediocre production/effort from the 3. But Pippen has the knees of a 73 year old and ERob thinks practice is bad luck.

it's rare that we all agree on anything on this board, but I think a strong concensus can agree on the above. :)

I like Marko a lot and would love to have him on this team, but trading JC for him is giving away way too much. Unfortunately, trading Fizer for Marko wouldn't be enough. It's a dilly of a pickle.
