Default Camby for Battier + Landry - What do you think Rockets Fans?

I haven't checked the salaries but I think the following should work:


Camby (10m) a year

for

Battier + Landry


If not you could throw in Stevie Franchise's contract.


Would Rockets fans do this trade?

With Artest, Battier is expendable and you get the perfect backup big that can also step in for Yao when injured or at times play along side him for the ultimate shot blocking.

Landry could be substituted for Hayes if need be.

Its a decent trade. But with McGrady being injured, expect the Rockets to insert Battier at the starting SG if need be.

Once it seems they are legit title contenders, Mutumbo will resign.

rockets fan: no thanks. even though it would be interesting to have camby in the rotation with yao and scola, battier is much more valuable to us rotating with mcgrady and artest... decent idea but houston is better of not doing the trade

i wouldnt do this trade...battier fits in perfectly with the rockets and is a great defensive player on perimeter, car landry is houstons youth and is playing extremely well....camby is getting too old i wouldnt make the trade.

Gwallace?

We need a guy who can play D, swing the ball and knock down the open 3. Gwallace is nice but I like an SF that can knock down an open shot.

I put Landry in there because I like him the best but any of the Rockets undersized bangers would do (they have 3 of them), even Dorsey.

I highly doubt Houston would trade their best defender.

Gwallace is a pretty good shooter nowadays. Not a long range bomber, but midrange is nice. We got Gordon and Bdavis. With Gwallace and Kaman next to Zach the frontline is good at D too.


I don't want Hayes on the Clippers btw.

That's a tough one. Battier is great for this team on offense as a spot-up shooter and creates great spacing, makes the right passes. On D is another lockdown man and help defender and provides great transition defense which is sorely lacking on this team right now. And with the Lakers being the team to beat in the WC, having Battier/Artest is fantastic since they could literally take Kobe out of the game. On the other hand the Rockets are really struggling against taller PF's and have no backup center. I'd probably do it if we could trade Hayes instead of Landry.

Both would work. Pretty similar idea to what I had posted in the Clippers forum which was Camby/Hart/Rights to Sofoklis/Rockets keeping both 2nds in 2010* for Battier/Head/Franchise[Waived]/Landry(or Hayes/Dorsey).

Rockets traded Novak for the option of swapping 2nd round selections in 2010.
