I see his value on the team but I think it could be replaced.
Reke - Jimmer - Salmons - Babbitt - Ajinca/Young
To me his central value is spacing, there are other options that can provide that at the 4

quote:You're talking about trading him. So his value around the league is way more important than what you perceive his value to the Pelicans to be. I'm positive his value around the league is much higher than a bench SF.
If we needed a legit 4, then he would have a lot more value.
quote:And you're dumping one of the best spacers in the league for a role player at SF.
If we needed a legit 4, then he would have a lot more value. We don't, we need a spacer
If Memphis offered Q-Pon and a first round draft pick for Ryno
In contrast how much better does the starting five look with: Jrue - EG - Q-Pon/Snell - AD - Asik.
Name a better one...
Why do you hate Tyreke
And you're dumping one of the best spacers in the league for a role player at SF.
Guess who is going to be playing the SF spot for significant minutes every night as the roster currently stands. Take another guess about who really does not want to play the SF spot and who performs markedly better when he is playing the 1 or 2
quote:And my questions remains. Name a better one... Those 3 you alluded to are not better than Anderson.
Three guys shot better for 3pt land then him last year and 4 more guys were within 2% pts...
quote:Who cares whether or not he starts? He played the most minutes per game on the team last year.
Yes because that "best spacer in the league" will be playing on the bench.
quote:Sure, if that SF was actually really good. Or a 3 and D guy. Or even in the neighborhood of Anderson's value. The guys you're talking about are borderline scrubs. Tony Snell? The 32% 3 point shooter? QPon is a little better. But QPon? For Anderson? Come one. Those teams would have Anderson on a plane to their city before Dell could hang up the phone if he offered them those deals.
The equation is how valuable is a 30 min 3&D guy to the starting line up versus spacing on the bench and for 10-15 mins a game with the starters.
Or we could wait a year and fill the SF spot with either Gordon's cap space or the MLE and still have Ryno too.
It insinuates that Ryno is valued somewhat more than a Mid-tier draft pick.
quote:Sure. But thats not the example you gave. You were trading Anderson for Tony Snell or Quincy Pondexter. Huge downgrades in talent and not starters.
That is my entire point. Ryan Anderson is over valued IMO. I ship him off for a legit starter at the 3 spot and a draft pick. I think that is what he is actually worth
quote:Because its really unlikely we've actually shopped him. Other rumored offers have come from other teams' fanbases more often than not. Can anybody point to an actual "insider" reporting on what other teams have offered for Anderson?
It's not like any actual rumored offers have shown that other GM's value him as much as people on this board seem to think
quote:Asik was a totally different situation.
Asik was the best piece we could get for him last year and Asik ended up being work a mid-tier draft pick to Houston. It insinuates that Ryno is valued somewhat more than a Mid-tier draft pick.

I really think our fan base and maybe the Pels organization are over-valuing Ryan Anderson. Sell high - buy low. That is rule number one.
What I don't get is why shop him at all? He's not the only way to get a legit SF. In the next two years we'll be able to deal Gordon and get a real SF without dealing Anderson. Why rush it here?
I just don't see how you can justify not giving up a 6th man type for a playoff caliber starting SF
The problem is using arbitrary terms like "legit SF" or "playoff caliber starting SF." What do those even mean? What players are we actually talking about? There just isn't much depth of good SFs in the league right now.
