Agreed, except for me it's JWill, Posey, and Gasol in that order. IMO, there is just no other PG in the NBA that plays exactly like JWill, thus making JWill an invaluable part of the Grizzlies offensive and defensive system.Originally posted by <b>rawse</b>!
I'd like to hang on to Posey, Gasol, and JWill in that order. Anyone else can be traded if we get better in the long run.
Francis is a great player, but his ego is a concern. He's refused to play for the Grizzlies before, what's to stop him now?Originally posted by <b>Viper</b>!
Gasol is as close to untradeable as anyone, but JWest would trade him too if the right deal could be made, but that would have to be some kind of deal.
Steve Francis & Houston are no longer in love. Houston needs a good PG that will work the ball inside. J-Will & Stro to Houston for Francis? I haven't checked the salary, but I assume we'd have to add some filler to make the salaries work.
I love J-Will but his outside shooting is atrocious. He's great when he's hot, but he's only hot about 1 game in 10. We need more shooting consistency from our PG's. Francis is an outstanding PG & a great shooter. Problem solved.
No, I don't think this trade will happen, but I think it's an interesting idea.
They didn't win it right after he left. They had players called Juan Dixon, Steve Blake, Chris Wilcox and Lonny Baxter who were excellent college players.Originally posted by <b>grizzhoops</b>!
Francis isn't the type of player that other players like to play with night in and night out. Once he left Maryland, they won the national championship. ???? What does that say?
Yao gets the ball plenty. I hope the Rockets do trade him and people can then start to criticize Yao for Houston's problems.Originally posted by <b>AL9045</b>!

That being said, Francis would be a better SG than a PG and I don't like how he's not giving the ball to Yao and he would probably neglect Gasol as well.
Oh please, Yao is not Houston's problem. Houston's problem is that Francis is not willing to give up the ball even though he's never been to the playoffs. He's still clashing with Van Gundy and it's likely he'll be traded.Originally posted by <b>MemphisX</b>!
