For GMan, ElDunker & Rally ....
If you do Rondo for Monroe/Jennings, would you also do;
Hump & Fav for Asik, Jones & Beverly?
C> Asik - Monroe - Oly
PF> Monroe - Oly - Sully
SF> Green - Wallace - Jones
SG> Bradley - Lee - Brooks
PG> Jennings - Beverly - Crawford
What are you smoking?
Monroe's natural position is Center. He was moved to PF only because Drummand is an absolute stud soon to be all star and there is redundancy. Also, there is no way Asik starts over Monroe at center for any team. But even more fundamental, we don't need both and neither would sit on the bench.
Also, Jennings isn't a PG you rebuild around. Bradley, Lee and ??Brooks?? may be the WORST SG depth chart in the history of the NBA. My guess is that none of them will be on the team this time next year.
Agreed about SG but starting the rebuild with the Hump & Rondo trades get you more assets that can be used to flip for an upgrade. Jennings is a PG that could start for now and be flipped. Having both Asik and Monroe gives us a 1-2 punch at Center and flexibility at PF/C with Monroe/OLY being able to play both C & PF. These two trades are building blocks ... not a finished product.
