Would you guys trade an unprotected future 2nd rounder for Perry Jones III? Maybe a 2nd rounder with protection is possible because of the injury that caused his drop in the last draft?
@stevekylerNBA: For the Suns peeps - Asked around regarding Marcin Gortat... Everyone I spoke to believes he is moved, but Suns haven't started that process
Interesting, doesn't really fit our rebuilding process. however, I'm a big fan of his game and if would like him here for the right price.

Let the CHOsen one get to work!
i got a question regarding multiple teams trade rules. Is the maximum amount of teams involved in a trade scenario restricted to 4? the trade machine certainly is, and it is quite accurate about the trade regulations, just i couldnt find any other source regarding the question. would be cool if somebody could enlighten me :-)
I think the biggest was in 2005, when there was a 5 team deal involving Miami, Boston, Memphis, New Orleans, and Utah.
Not to mention all the restrictions in general and the new rules on whether you're over the cap, luxury apron, etc. It's just very difficult to get more tan 2 or 3 teams together that can actually get a deal to work.

New Orleans is desperate to get rid of Eric Gordon.. he doesn't want to be there anymore either..
Charlotte is looking to get younger and aquire assets.. Eric Gordon would be a big gamble because of his injury- but he was still dropping 17ppg last year and only 2 years removed from being a 22ppg player with the Clippers
so the idea is swap the #4 and #6 picks and the pair of Gordons
Bobcats get: #6 pick & Eric Gordon = 4 years @ $13.6
Pelicans get: #4 pick & Ben Gordon = 1 year @ $12.4
what say you
Well the question for me would be...
E.Gordon...do I want to invest 44.6 million in a guy with a history of injuries who may or may not be an upgrade to Hendo for the next three years or...
B. Gordon...use his expiring to get a better return than a guy with some serious questions with an injury history....I choose this one
No, no, and no. Doesn't work for a couple of reasons: 1) We don't want to hitch our wagon to a player who can't stay healthy; and 2) The Pelicans can get a lot more for Gordon than Gordon and a swap of draft selections.
