After reviewing all the trade ideas for big men. I believe this trade is better than the gortat trade because with phx we would be taken away their starting center, but with N.O they already have anthony davis. they shouldn't miss lopez to much because they have a center for the future. phx will ask for entirely too much and N.O might ask for just enough. I have already tried this trade in the trade machine and it works perfectly. Brandon Bass, Fab melo and a 1st/2nd round draft pick for Lopez. Phx would definitely want sully, bass and fab melo along with a pick ( TOO MUCH). It should work for N.O because they get a veteran pf in bass who will not have as much responsibility on a young hornets team as he does on an aging celtics team. That famous jump shot of his will fall easier because you have young Davis lurking around the basket for the rebounds. Not to mention they get raw talent in Fab Melo. Great shot blocker with great footwork. Good upside! Once he learns the game more he will be a very good center in this league. NOW I'M NOT SAYING BRANDON BASS IS A BAD PLAYER, HE IS A VERY GOOD PF, BUT WE HAVE TO LET HIM GO BECAUSE WHAT HE BRINGS TO TABLE IS WHAT KILLS US EVERY YEAR....JUMP SHOOTING!!! WE NEED TO GO FOR A LOW POST PRESENCE THAT CAN REBOUND, BLOCK SHOTS, AND FINISH AROUND THE RIM. BASS IS NOT WHAT WE NEED IF WE WANNA BEAT MIAMI AND PULL AND UPSET. JUMP SHOOTING KEEPS US IN GAMES EVERY YEAR AND KILLS US EVERY YEAR IN THE PLAYOFFS. WE NEED SIZE WITHOUT GIVING UP TO MUCH. THIS SHOULD BE GOOD FOR BOTH TEAMS.
