    I'd love it if he went to Cleveland.

    For the laughs.

    You clearly don't know.

    He's one of the most personable and likable players in his city who also does quite a bit of philanthropy behind the scene. .

    Aaron Hernandez was personable and likable, and he was quite philanthropic, too.

    yeah, maybe a playoff/contending team gets desperate for a C and we use our capspace to facilitate a trade and maybe take another expiring they don't want and get a pick/player we do want

    Wow funny this thread was here already when I made my Sac thread trade idea.

    I wouldn't have any interest in Noah on his own but as a package where we acquire a young asset sure. You could really put any player in place of Noah and say "overpaid expiring contract" because thats how I view him if we traded for him.

    We added a year of Raef LaFrentz contract and that helped us get Brandon Roy, I'd try to aim for something similar. We lucked out at that draft getting a future allstar but the premise is add on salary for young talent.

    Disagree; we have no use for Noah as a player. $16 million is way too much for a player/mentor.

    As a contract that gets us some other young talent sure.

    Only reason to consider such a deal. We have zero use for Noah the player. We're not contending this year so we have zero need for old short term players.

    He makes 13.4M and we have 20.6M in cap space. We could always move him again too, he has value.

    If he has value get the value all at once in the same deal. I don't think we should use 2/3rd of our cap space on an asset with zero long term value.

    I wonder if the Thunder go after him to reunite him with Billy Donovan (and try to shore up the Thunder's shitty defense).

    I'd LOVE to have Noah. He's too old to be part of the core going forward, but I think his intensity improves any team culture.

    This is just a weird comment...

    Not sure why you have so much hate for Noah, whether it's his hair or what, but I'd love to add him to the team.

    Agreed. Noah was a great player and if we could get him from 5 years ago I'm giving up a lottery pick for him. But now injured and old he doesn't make any sense for a rebuilding team.

    Comparing him to murderers is over the top sensationalism and very poor taste.

    Not sure; some people don't like him because he's goofy and odd looking, funny hair. Maybe thats it.

    My thinking is if he helps you get playoff experience for the young guys, it's worth it. I'm not sold on Plumlee being a full time starter over the long term, so it wouldn't be keeping someone from needed development minutes.

    Plus I saw him play last year, and he is not washed up.
