Stone tributes Philadelphia Erse, Rockets get Shin-Yukking to fill in

Barnes and Gordon help Harden compete for the title

By Fei Ye LanPublished 5 months ago 3 min read

According to the U.S. media reports, the Sun management is currently making every effort to market Crowded, after Crowded and the Erse and Heat rumors, but former NBC Philadelphia Division reporter Paul Hendrick reported that the Philadelphia Erse do not intend to get Crowded through a trade, they still hope to get the Rockets star Gordon and deal with Harris's big contract in the deal. As we all know, due to Harden's pay cut, the Erse had an important reinforcement in the off season, in which the addition of Tucker, House, Melton and Harrell undoubtedly made them stronger, but in the East, the Bucks, Bucks, Greens and even Heat, are all strong opponents, and the Erse still don't have much chance of winning when facing them. The Rockets' former general manager wants Harden to find the offensive form that he found in Philadelphia in Houston, and Eric Gordon is undoubtedly one of the important pieces around Harden. Once, Gordon comes to the Erse, Harden will have four familiar former teammates around him, which will allow him to maximize his threat with the ball.

U.S. media "space city scoop" basketball reporter N.B. Lindbergh recently wrote an article reported that Philadelphia and the Rockets recently conducted in-depth discussions on Gordon's deal, but the Rockets did not eat Harris's big contract intentions, which led to the delay in the implementation of Gordon's deal, and now, the Rockets and Philadelphia are ready to pull a third team for a three-way deal, so as to reach a deal . For now, the Erse, Rockets and Kings have completed preliminary discussions, of which the general framework of the deal: Philadelphia Erse get Gordon, Barnes, Kings get Harris, the 2029 first-round pick from Philadelphia; Rockets get Dijon Holmes, George Goiania, Terence Davis. So, this deal, if reached, has what kind of impact for the three teams?

For the Kings, Harris is an upgrade from Barnes. While also good at offense, Harris is better at defense than Barnes, and what the Kings lack is some tough defenders. In addition, Harris has one year left on his contract, which could be a disaster for other teams, but Sacramento doesn't have as much appeal to stars and has a hard time retaining players. In addition, the 2029 first-round pick from Philadelphia could be worth a lot of money.

For the Philadelphia Erse, the combination of Barnes and Gordon is definitely an upgrade from Harris, and they give the team more opportunities on the offensive end. Barnes averaged 16.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game last season, shooting 46.9 percent from the field and nearly 40 percent from 3-point range. Although Barnes does not have top-notch ability on both offensive and defensive sides, he can attack and defend well and does not stick to the ball, which is suitable for playing next to Harden. Barnes also has championship experience, which can help Philadelphia go far. And Gordon is a real tough guy, last season he averaged 13.4 points, 2 rebounds and 2.7 assists, shooting 47.5% from the field and 41.2% from three, Gordon can be a leader off the Philadelphia bench. Collectively, the Philadelphia Erse got a power boost in this three-way deal.

For the Rockets, although they did not get the first-round pick to compensate, but not for nothing, Dijon Holmes has excellent athletic ability, is a cap master, Holmes in the Kings can get 24 minutes of playing time per game, get 10.4 points, 7.1 rebounds and 0.93 caps, his throwing and mid-range shooting is very good, hitting 54.9% and 56.7% respectively, and also He also has a good ability to finish under the basket, and also has the ability to "eat pancakes" after the block, which can be used as a backup center for Shen Jiang and help the Rockets guard the interior. In addition, George Goiania and Terence Davis expired contracts, can help the Rockets save some payroll space.

What do you think of this three-way trade proposal, how workable is it?
