How to maximize Vasquez’s trade value.

If the management team is leaning towards drafting Burke, and eventually trading Vasquez to maximize the return, when would be the best time to do it? I know my point is not going to be very popular among some fans, but here it is anyway.

If we are trying to get the best possible value for Vasquez, I think the strategy would be to draft Burke (assuming he is available) and keep Vasquez.

In this scenario, I would assume that we would have improved the team in other positions via trade and free agency. If that is the case, we can then let Vasquez start next season for a month or so (while Burke learns the system and gets use to the NBA), and then trade him before the dead line.

My rational here is that due to his surgery, Vasquez value right now is much lower than what it was at the end of the season. Now, if he starts for the first month of the season, we have an improved team, and a healthy Gordon we can eventually end that first month with a positive record (despite having Vasquez starting). If that is the case, then what you would be offering for trade would be a healthy “starting PG” (note that I am using quotes here), that helped a team to a positive record, with decent numbers (let’s say he has something like 9 assists and 14 ppg the first month).

In that scenario we could certainly get a much better value for him than what we can get now, and our season would not be compromised, as Burke would then take the PG position haven learned the basics of the team, and we would have an additional player (whoever we get for Vasquez) to help us.

What do you think?

I think Dell better watch his back.

Of course it is, what I mean is that by the beginning of next season we would have additional improvements via trdae and FA.

Drafting Burke does not mean you need to move Gravy. A good team needs 4 solid guards. The good thing for us is that 3 of those 4 are pretty versatile and could play either position. Sometimes you need to keep what you develop in order to improve. Trading your proven talent can be a slippery slope.

I agree that we would not NEED to move Vasquez, but even though having 4 guards is ideal, it may be that we have other needs in the team that could be worth addressing by sacrificing one of the 4 guards. Haven said that, I am convinced that Dell will not let Vasquez go unless he feels he is getting a really good deal

It will be fine, what we do with Vasquez (even though I started this Thread) will not have that big an impact in our season. We just have to get 2 and a half good improvements and we will be fine

First, we draft McLemore, Oladipo, or Porter at 6. Next, we acquire pick 13 and Marion or Carter from dallas and use that pick to draft CJ. Then, trade GV or EG with Lopez for Cousins. FInally, sign iggy to a 3 or 4 yr deal to bring leadership to this team.


Boom! Very Good offseason

If they were to pull that off, Dell should then run for US President with Monty as hist VP
