Hoops Rumors Community Shootaround 11/29/15

The standings in both conferences after one month look somewhat strange for a few teams. In the Eastern Conference, the Bucks and Wizards are both disappointing. Those teams were picked by many to make the playoffs, but are currently — and surprisingly — on the outside looking in. Over in the Western Conference, the Rockets and Pelicans both can be found near the bottom of the standings.

Obviously, some offseason moves will pan out and some won’t for a variety of reasons, but it’s a bit early to start declaring “hits” and “misses.” With that in mind, teams that were picked to contend that are currently struggling should theoretically be able to turn things around. However, most of the aforementioned teams have few weaknesses and a trade that would fill any small holes and would expedite such a process.

The Bucks have the potential to swing a trade, fix what is not working and get back on track. It’s obvious that Milwaukee is lacking its defensive edge from last season. With Greg Monroe, the Bucks can win now and are still built for the future (they own their future first round picks). It wouldn’t take much to turn things around this season; perhaps acquiring someone who can help defensively on the interior would do the trick.

Here’s the question for today: Which struggling team would benefit the most with a trade and why?

  1. The clippers. With Stephenson not giving them much pierce clearly aging and Reddick missing games thier off season is starting to look bad. They don’t have much creativity on offense and are still prone to collapses, such as against GS and then a loss to POR who had lost 5 straight coming into that game. Houston may need a shake up more but it’s not gonna be easy being hard capped. LAC looks like their ceiling is the second round and I’m sure balmer wants more than that.

      I think you’re right regarding the second round. the clippers seem like they have the pieces, just not ones that are meshing well.

  2. Chuck Myron

    The Rockets haven’t failed to make a trade near the deadline in Daryl Morey’s tenure as a GM, and he’s no stranger to early-season trades, either. The coaching change, perhaps predictably, hasn’t solved the apparent issues in Houston. If any would-be contender’s roster is in need of a shakeup, it’s Houston’s.

    as a Bucks fan, it pangs me to say i’d look to trade MCW and a bag of peanuts for a slightly larger bag of peanuts.

    • I posted a trade of MCW and Bucks protected 1st for Dennis Schroder.

    • Will Joseph

      haha. he’s been pretty bad. not sure you’d get that larger bag.

  4. The Bucks need to find a defensive big man to play along side Monroe or Jabari Parker. Someone who is a defensive stopper and not only blocks shots, but also creates driving to the basket difficult with him protecting the rim. Hate to say it but they should call Larry Sanders and see if he is willing to make a comeback.

    • Arthur Hill

      That bridge is probably burned, but if healthy and focused on basketball, Sanders is just what they need.
