[QUOTE]Bias - I don't always agree with your "gotta have a trade now", but other than your "Camby for BbD" thing - you've at least shown some basketball knowledge. So, answer this: Why in the WORLD would you say you'd take Battier and Murphy? Murphy is 6'11" tall but gets 4 rebounds per game, averages 34% field goal shooting, 17% 3 point shooint, 52% from the free throw line, is slow and can't play D, has 0.3 shot blocks per game, etc. He's HORRIBLE. Why in the world would you even CONSIDER wanting this guy? How do you possibly think he can replace BBD? He can't guard centers, can't guard power forwards, and can't shoot and can't rebound. What's to like about him? Doc and Danny would NEVER trade for this bum!

This will be really difficult for Danny. He needs to start thinking about cutting payroll as the BIG 3 inevitably fade away and provide management with funding to sign good players. Danny will not be here. He will be playing golf in AZ and spending time with his children and grandchildren and hoping that he does not have another heart attack.
The Cs will be left with an overpaid point guard and a 20 to 25 win team.
This is a very slippery slope for Danny and ownership.
There are Davis's drafted every year and someone who cannot read or write the basic language of his own country should pretty much be able to be replaced by any number of other players in the league - give me Warrick, Turiaf, Gadzuric, and a whole bunch of other guys in the league that can easily step in and do what Baby does.
Danny is in a tough position - he needs to assess how to wind down the BIG 3 and leave ownership in position to be on the upside of the cycle of the NBA - plenty of cap space, some young talent, etc. Unfortunately he will not be in that position.
