All this talk about Curry leaving or trading Nocioni and Davis, but what about Hinrich?

We need a big 2 guard so that teams just won't take advantage of us in that position. When it comes to the playoffs, our players will be tired out and its a weakness that will be exploited dearly.

Take Hirich with Davis, who's contract expires which will be tempting to many teams and go get a 2. That or go after Bobby Simmons in free agency. I know some people here will disagree with moving their hero Hinrich, but it could be for the better for the team. Gordon needs 35MPG.

Gordon needs development time before Hinrich becomes expendable. Duhon is the only other player on this team that can run the offense, as proven by the win in Toronto.

Gordon excels at shooting, and getting his shot off. His passing efficiency has been awful this season, has been foul prone (otherwise his mpg would be much higher than it currently is), and has been turnover prone. This is not the someone you want running the team in the near-term.

Currently, I would only trade Hinrich for someone in the Richard Hamilton mold; a playmaker, excellent mid range shooter (to come off the Curls we like to run), and can play some defense.

We win one road game without the dude, and all of the sudden he is expendable?

I agree that nobody is untouchable, but come on, lets not get ahead of ourselves.

I'm open to listening to trade ideas for anyone as long as there are worthy players coming back. I'm not convinced that Curry/Chandler/Noc/Deng/Hinrich/Gordon/Duhon have a championship caliber five man starting squad in them...

Of course I love the depth and youth we have...but there isn't a big guard among them to even throw in for variety and there isn't a really complete big man. Since complete big men are hard to find, we'd at least need one more skilled big to bolster our frankenstein front line.

I'm not eager to make a trade involving any of our core nor am I eager to let anyone (Duhon) go for nothing. If Kirk could pull back a Rip type player (Joe Johnson...! And JJ can sorta run a team...) or if Ben could pull back a guy like JJ or Maggette, I'd think about it. I'm not going to spend too much time thinking about it on my own, though, because I'd really prefer to see everyone mature and gel. Come what may.

Ja don't rule.

J/K. I agree that the big 2 guard is on the wish list. I don't know that that makes Hinrich "expendable," but just like anyone else on the team, if it makes the team better, you move him.

I'm thinking negative. Read his other posts. Doesn't sound Gipperesque. But intriguing nonetheless...
I figured a guy with only six posts and already ripping on Hinrich and hero worship must mean "Gip is in the thread".

It only seems to lack his rapid fire posting style, although that may be attributed to Gips need to standby temporarily while he berates the janitor or pays homage to some deserving soul who has "reciprocated" respect back to the Gip.
