Can someone PLEASE...........come up with a trade that is actually worth discussing???.............realgm is great and all but all these repetitive threads with deals that simply wouldnt happen, are getting a little annoying.

Plus, please please please, if you gonna suggest a trade with lets say, the Grizz, then if you get rebuffed then just post back in THAT thread, not start a new topic for each player youve swapped out of it and re-suggested.

Sorry, dont mean to be rude..........I just want to read/discuss a trade thread that makes sense and not see this board flooded with 5/6 reply topics.

Pretty hard to do. It has to make sense for both teams, and to get something of value, you gotta give equal, or more, value. If we don't include any of our valuable guys, we're gonna have to settle for trades like Pietrus for Hakim Warrick or the like... Anything else would be a pipe dream.

Agreed...the trade forum is getting out of hand. Most of the trades mentioned could be in one subject (i.e. trades for Pietrus)

when baron jackson biedrinis and ellis r off limits in trades for the most part it gets hard to make a trade that helps both teams.

I been here for 2 years, chief. If you're looking for realistic trade ideas, you're in the wrong place. :wink:

Fair enough............but its never been as annoying, un-real and repetetive as this latest bunch.

T Prince for Barnes and Pietrus??? that just sealed the deal on my annoyance and had to say something.

I've seen somebody seriously propose we offer Minnesota the package of Troy Murphy, Chris Taft, Zarko Chaparkapa, and a future 2nd round pick for Kevin Garnett. And he defended that trade for weeks.

It gets BAD around here.

Pietrus for a ham sandwich is a fair trade . . . and realistic.

Yes, most of the trade scenarios are very unrealistic, but I try to just get a chuckle out of them and move on.

The problem is that as Warrior fans, we tend to over value our own players cause we have some sort of emotional tie to them. That perceived value does not always correspond the the general opinion around the league of that player.

Also trades are very uncommon because for a GM to pull the trigger, they are going to need to feel that they are getting the better side of the deal (unless it is dumping a player becuase of off the court issues or salary dump).
