I don't like that one at all.
With the recent trouble of the heat and their eagerness to cut salary cap room, trade rumors with the cats are floating the air of speculation...
Heat Gets: Okafor and Felton
Charlotte Gets: J-wil, Haslem & Blount
Anybody liking this trade

great character guys and solid performers for old, suspect not that great guys? I don't think so....
I know OK50 is a free agent and Felton (I think) has a year left but white chocolate and Blount suck balls. I'd rather take my chances in the draft. Ugh.
I'm not keen on this trade as constituted. Run the numbers:
J-Will 9.1 pts and 5.1 assts
Haslem 12.8 pts and 9.3 reb
Blount 5.7 pts and 2.7 assts
Raymond 13.8 pts and 7.1 assts
Okafor 12.8 pts and 10.3 assts
The numbers balance out but it takes 3 people to make the output of 2. I do not think it makes us any better. Also, our guys are finally starting to gel together and make some noise. Cannot bring in 3 new and send 2 out at this stage in the game. We are only 3 games out of 8th spot.
IF we show signs of fading in the next 30 days and realize that the team is not going to be in Playoff contention, then if Miami was so desperate as to give us their 1st rounder also, I'd consider it. But, not for just the players. Doesn't make good fiscal sense and it really doesn't make us better.
That trade would probably cause Riley to reconsider retirement.

Its no way id even consider it during this wining streak.
Add a 1st and thats a differant story,
I just threw up in my mouth.
