Well it's young, but I've enjoyed reading Thank You Isaiah so far, and not just because of the name.
BUT...in all of the trade talk, there are always three main names from our core guys bandied about: Deng (less so now, but I think he's still viewed as expendable for the right superstar, which is still insane, b/c in 2 more years, he will be the right superstar), Nocioni and Gordon. In any event, I was tooling around 82games.com the other day, and the thought arose: Why isn't Hinrich ever considered as expendable as these other guys?
It continues from there with the evidence...
Of course I can't just post such a quote without comment: As I've said several times before when discussing big-picture scenarios, I think the timetable is accelerated through the Wallace signing and Brown's expiring deal where difference-making deals should be aggressively explored. But also I think the numbers presented say more about how good Ben Gordon's been this year (and I'll give him the proper due [in full-length-post form] soon) than it does about Hinrich's relative expendability...and I'm much more hesitant to deal him now than I was a few weeks ago.
But differences in opinion aside, it's a good post. So go there and say hi.
