I like to read what the fans posted, most of them would welcome Beans:

Could Andris Biedrins Be The Next Rockets Center?

Surprised to see so many of them willing to bring in Beans AND/OR Monta. Kind of a desperate group of posters there.

Someone proposed:

Monta/Beans for Martin/Scola - not the perfect fit for GS but not bad value in return

Firstly, we're looking for anyone to take AB off our hands, that's how things are right now in relation to him. Houston wants him, alrighty then, let's just see what we can get for him. Monta and AB for Martin and Scola, I think Scola does a bit more than AB, but yea, pretty awkward and really I think it's give the same result, likelt Scola regressing soon as well if he were here. Martin is a shooter and less of a slasher than Monta and that's worse for the team as it is built right now with the roster.

I'd look for a very good Center first, but if no other trade could be found and this one could be done, I'd do it

I would do it even for expiring contract's or draft picks. If i go to the FA market with 20 mil to spent i get the best center available. Then i would trade Monta for a starting SF and i could start dreaming.

They should trade Biedrins for Robin Lopez or package him with a future 1st rounder for Bynum.

That wouldn't be close to enough for Bynum....


and please keep Kevin Martin as far away from this team as possible. You think Monta is a ball dominant player?

agreed. He is my least favorite NBA player (along with LeBron), so I want none of that in my NBA team.

I don't know if anybody would want Martin here...I can't stand the guy either.

Pretty much solely due to this thread I do not want to trade Biedrins anymore. Unless it is for someone >6'10'', >240 lbs, and who has good defensive experience.

I think Biedrins just needed a change of scenery..hopefully the coaching changes will be enough to get him out of his mental slump. I can see him coming back to his old self with a new look in the front court..in fact, if we don't trade him, that's my prediction..seeing him get double-doubles more frequently again.

Back to double doubles would be great, definately enough for me to say keep him at least until he is a expirer. That's not all AB needs to do. He needs to be healthy and not injured much and perhaps the most important thing is he needs to not get outplayed by most of the guys his matched up against, which has happened most of the time in his career

I agree with you 100%.

AB also needs to start making at least 70% of his free throws..
