Daryl Morey please trade EG ,

Trade idea rationale

Hey Jackson, its Ram, I appreciate you highlighting my voice message on the podcast! I just wanted to provide the rationale behind my trade scenarios.

For the clippers I understand that a star player requires a large haul; however I read multiple reports of poor locker room chemistry by prominent players with paul george, and I was also taking into account his track record of falling short in big moments. I believe he isn’t optimized unless playing with a star playmaker, as he’s forced to create his own shot more and he also doesn’t excel in creating for others. I think he’s a perfect tertiary star like a Chris Bosh or Kevin Love.

To address your run it back point; I’m not sure this will be the case as evidenced by the firing of Doc Rivers. I believe that Ballmer is furious with having traded and put so much assets and cash into building up this team just for a 2nd round exit. I think Eric gordon gives the clippers a consistent slasher and shooter at the guard position; something they don’t really have with pat bev and reggie jackson. Lou williams is a bucket, but he proved to be a massive defensive liability. Do you think it would move the needle if they threw in PJ Tucker as opposed to RoCo?

For the Bucks trade its a bit more iffy, but I believe that Giannis is optimized as a small ball center, given his lack of shooting ability. I believe Eric Gordon is as perfect a fit next to a large wing player like Giannis as you can get. He would also fit well next to Lebron, but I’m not interested in Kuzma if I’m the rockets. Giannis has been exposed the last few years in the playoffs, but I think he would be impossible to guard at center due to his superior speed and lateral quickness.

Pretty good, but...

Time/date release of new episodes is all over the place.

Trade Idea

this trade takes place under the assumption that eric gordon is traded for anyone other than a center
Houston Receives: Mo Bamba + Al Forouk Amino (idk how to spell that lol)
Magic Receive: Danuel House + Austin Rivers (sign and trade) + cris clemons and potentially a second or two

Rationale: houston gets a young player that can rim roll and defend the rim (dollar store clint capela) that will play primarily with harden but may be able to play with russ depending on how his shot progresses. it will also allow them to play small ball with pj and jeff green during some of russ’ minutes and the playoffs. they also get rid of Danuel house a win in and of itself

orlando gets a great role player in danuel house to come off the bench as their 6th man and brings Austin house home to start or be a back up depending on how many of their guards re-sign, and they get the goat, cris clemons

players involved:
mo bamba gets to play next to james harden and catch lobs all game and is basically uncontested for center minutes,
al farouk gets to round out the rotation in houston while getting some of the widest open threes of his career,
danuel house gets booted from houston to possibly the bleakest basketball situation in orlando... oh sweet revenge,
Austin river’s gets to go home to orlando and will get a more certain spot in the rotation in orlando,
and cris clemons will be cris clemons
