Lopez has averaged 23 and 7 over last four games. He averaged 6 and 5 in the five games before that. Sell at all an all-time high!!
He also averaged 31.25 minutes per game over the last 4 games, and 20.4 minutes per game the previous 5 games. Skewed stats are skewed.
I don't think he is the long term solution at center, but like I said earlier, why trade a valuable piece at such a thin position? If a team wants to overpay for him, then go for it, but I don't think we should be dangling him out there.
Vasquez, Lopez, and 1st for Brooks and Cousins would be a terrible trade for us. We wouldn't get any better at PG, we would be giving up a potentially top 5 pick (Noels, Zeller or Mohammed), and a productive center on a good contract, for a physically gifted, and mentally challenged center. No thanks.
I think the best thing for this team (especially GV) is to see how everyone plays with Gordon back before we start exploring trades. I truly believe Gordon will play well with GV, and make him look a lot better.
