P-Dub34 said:The only way that would be possible would be the Wolves going for the full youth movement, in which case guys like West/Green/Gomes/Allen/Perk/Al/multiple picks would have to go. Pierce + Garnett + filler is an instant challenger in the Eastern Conference, though.
P-Dub34 said:Totally different situation and you know it. Carter was tanking. Garnett is still trying to carry a team on his back.
Carter was 16/3/3 on 41% shooting when he was traded.
Garnett's 22/12/4/1/1 on 52%, and, if he had a team around him like he did in '03-'04, would be contending for MVP again.
