Kyle Curry – Rajon Rondo – Kings can’t afford to get rid of Rondo, they have talent elsewhere on the court but are lacking depth at the PG position. Kings need to keep him but also make sure that he doesn’t keep having outbursts like the most recent with a homosexual slur. If I’m the GM I’m keeping Rondo.
Jr. Williams – Rondo has actually been one of the bright spots for the Kings, unfortunately, his horrible attitude continues to preclude his overall great talent as a point guard and facilitator. I’m not sure how much interest he has around the league, but I don’t think he will last in Sacramento or on any team with a passive coach running the show. Statistically he’s one of the top-5 assist men in the league, which has some value, but lets be real about Rondo — one bad apple spoils the bunch and what GM wants that type of drama in the locker room? Rondo has run out of life lines, he’s done in Sac-town.
Ben Buchanan – I think Rondo has found a home in Sacramento, as strange as it has been Rondo has been (mostly) a pleasant surprise in Sac Town. Rondo leads the league in triple doubles with 4, he is also leads the league in APG with 11.0. Rondo is a good fit with the Kings, and you’d have to question his value anyways as he is expiring at the end of this season.
Kyle Curry – Dwight Howard – The Rockets should definitely look into getting rid of Howard. If rumors are true him and Harden are no longer getting along, when push comes to shove, Harden is the player you want to keep. They have Montrezl Harrell, that given the chance, I think can flourish into a great post-player. If I’m the GM, I’m looking to Philadelphia for Nerlens Noel or even to the Spurs to bring Lamarcus Aldridge in.
Jr. Williams – I think Howard is looking at his final days in a Rockets uniform, as his team experienced large success last season without him in the line-up. I agree with what you mentioned about James Harden, he is indeed the best player and the future of this Rockets team, while Howard’s effectiveness continues to dwindle. Overall, Howard is limited offensively anywhere beyond 8 feet from the rim, and he just continues to wreak havoc on every team he joins. If I were the GM, I would look for a guy like Nerlens Noel also, as he and Jalil Okafor are incompatible on the court. Dwight Howard is going bye-bye!
Ben Buchanan – Dwight is clearly unhappy with his situation in Houston. Howard, still 30 would still possess some value on the market as a veteran defensive minded center. Howard is more then capable of starting on a playoff team averaging 15+ ppg, 10 rpg and 2 bpg. He just needs to find a good fit. I definitely think it’s time for Dwight to find a new home. Possibly a move to Dallas? Chicago? Indiana? All possibilities. If I were Daryl Morey I’d look for a younger prospect at the 5 and a mix of future picks and young role players. It may be time for Houston to start a mini rebuild.
Kyle Curry – Unless the Cavs can trade him and receive Kristaps Porzingis or Paul George, they need to keep him as well. He is the leading the team in rebounds and second in points. If I’m the GM I’m keeping Love.
Jr. Williams – Love just signed a five year 110 million dollar deal before the season began, therefore its safe to say that the Cavs are stuck with him for a few more seasons, but if you ask me, Love seems to be out of place most of the time on the court and he doesn’t match-up well with some of the better power forwards in the league. Don’t get me wrong, Kevin Love is a talented player, unfortunately, when you put him on a team with LeBron James, he just looks like an average player. The Cavs may have the best record in the east, but it has not been in dominating fashion. In the end, I think Love will remain for at least two seasons, but he won’t last five years in Cleveland — he’s just not that type of player.
Ben Buchanan – Love has been a major disappointment since he was acquired by the Cavs. his numbers has dropped drastically as he is now the #2/3 option in Cleveland. Though I think Love has been a disappointment I see no reason why the Cavs would look to move Love. He is one of the most talent players in the league, and they have no reason to mix it up, they’re the clear favorites to come out of the East and don’t have a reason to make any changes.
