    One-year rental of Big Al

    Would San Antonio bite on a one-year rental of Big Al for Paddy Mills and Blair or Splitter? I looked at the salaries and they don't even come close to matching, and being totally ignorant of the rules about the cap, I figure it's an impossibility.

    But can a team make such a trade that would put them over the cap if it solidifies their chance for a title? The big three's window is closing and an offensive force down low could put the Spurs over the top.

    If anyone could get Big Al to pass out of the double team and to rotate on the P n R, it would be Pop. You know if Al didn't, Pop would put him on the bench until he did. Plus Al would have Duncan there as a second coach and his presence would help him on defense as well. Of course, Al's minutes would diminish in such a situation and he might not even start for them. But he could be a huge weapon for them, especially in the fourth quarter, and you know Pop would be subbing in for defense, as he always does if you watch the Spurs.

    The Spurs don't need Mills or Blair, not sure they'd give up Splitter but that would ease the salary discrepancy because he makes $4 million and Blair only $1 million and change. And we could make Mills our starting point. Having watched him in the Olympics, I believe he is good enough to be a starting NBA PG and would definitely be better than anyone we have. Mo could then be a combo-guard sixth man and play back-up point, and we could trade Foy for a draft pick.

    I realize this is an unlikely scenario but one can dream.

    no, i dont think so.... they are too smart to do a trade like this.
    nice effort though, maybe we can brainstorm and come up with something better, friend.
    sticking in texas, what about dallas or houston? they could use a guy like Big Al.

    Well, then, maybe bring in a third team. I think Mills might be the most attainable PG to fit our needs. And we could get rid of Foy in the process too. At least I hope so. He's almost as bad as Raja last year, except that he can shoot better.

    nah, he is not a good fit here.

    How much have you seen Mills play? He's a pretty good point guard; Mo is not a PG, he's a shooting guard in PG body.

    This just reminds me of fast food lingo for some reason.

    If we also could get Splitter and shed salary, then a good deal for the Jazz -- getting rid of Al and his salary is addition by subtraction, but getting something of value in addition would be a huge bonus. If we do the same with Foye related to this deal, that would even be better.

    Funny how I brought up a Splitter and Al type trade last season after the playoffs, and nobody cared.
    Now all of a sudden.....

    What's the ad hominem have anything to do with what's good or bad -- an ad hominem is in itself a negative we should avoid.

    Pop has see Al play basketball. No chance SA wants Al Jefferson, unless they Jazz give him away or add something to it to sweeten the deal.
