Better question, which NBA team would have the assets and be willing to trade for a 34 year old oft-injured SG owed $14 million? I love Manu, and hes worth what hes paid on the Spurs when hes healthy and playing as such. But trade value, your going to look at his injury history, he wouldn't really help a rebuilding team, and no contender is going to be able to absorb that contract.
At his age Manu has no trade value at all. At this point in his career I hope he decides to retire after this season is done.
I love manu. That said I hope he makes this his swan song year. One last go representing Argentina and one more serious push with the spurs. To be honest same goes for Duncan. It's starting to get to the point where I really want to remember them positively, and not as Hakeem with the raptors or Mike with the Wiz.
They can play as long as they want to play. If you don't like it then don't watch it. If those guys retire and the Spurs suck you probably won't watch anyway. So why not just shut the fuck up and stop watching now?
Yeah and when we all stop watching Holt will sell our team to a management group inSeattle. It's not that simple man. I wish we could freeze time too, but we must adjust expectations.
Probably nothing because I don't control the spurs.
I will burn his jersey and then piss on the ashes.. jk. I would be terribly sad and have a candle lit ceremony in his honor, followed by a moment of silence.
prob kill myself
not really. i wanna live.
It depends on if I liked the city he was traded to and real estate there was affordable.
a) the spurs wouldn't trade Manu as he is one of the beloved players of the fan base and coaching staff. he also gets along all too well with Duncan and TP and they wouldn't do anything to upset either
b) this spurs team will not be competitive for much longer and will be rebuilding sooner rather than later. 1-2 years at most. manu being a big 14 million dollar expiring contract is very valuable
c) for all those talking about him retiring, Manu is the most competitive Spur I have ever seen, and if he feels he can't compete, he'll retire. he won't stay till he's 40 and ineffective. he'll know when to call it quits better than any of us
Maybe the spurs could work out a deal with a team that has a General Manager from the Spurs family tree. Bit of insider trading lol.
Trade Manu for a wicked big man. Said Team amnesties or waives Manu and we get him back
Most of scenaries It's a dumb move to trade Manu.The exception is if you can include him in the trade for someone "big".
He's much better than anyone you can get for him.He has no trade value . But he still better than 90% of the team and he is by far our best SG.
I hope he retires as a Spur.He deserves it.
Splitter,Parker and Leonard are the few players we have with trade value. Leonard shouldn't be in the trade conversation and Parker should retire here like Manu.
Splitter would be a steal if we trade him one for another but he would increase the trade value of any combo
For example If we would make a trade with Lakers:
Splitter+Manu could work for Gasol
Splitter+TP could work for Bynum
That would be nice, either of them.
If the second one were to go down, getting rid of tony and splitter for Bynum we'd need to make a mad run at Steve Nash to run the Point, otherwise we'd have nobody running the team.
= Fucken awesome lineup
Just say we got rid of Manu in your 1st scenario who would you get to fill our SG slot?
"The truth is I'm a bit old school. For me, it would be hard to put on a Lakers jersey. That's just the way it is," Nash said. "You play against them so many times in the playoffs, and I just use them as an example, and I have the utmost respect for them and their organization.
"I kind of have that tendency (to try to beat the best teams), so it is strange, but as a free agent you're free to go where you want, so I'd have to consider everything regardless of the past or the future."
It depends on what we get for him.
Ginobili is old, and I don't expect him to perform at a decent level for much longer. If we could get something dope for him right now, I wouldn't be against it. I also wouldn't be upset if we never traded him and let him finish his career here either. He's still good enough to help out in a variety of ways.
It's mostly just "what do we get"? If it's just some scrub. . .then I'd rather not. If it's like a very high draft pick or multiple late lottery picks, I'd be okay with it. Like if we got the 2nd pick for him or something + some other guys being exchanged, I'd be like fuck yeah bro. Or like the 6th and 8th picks or some shit. That's worth it since we need to rebuild at some point.
