...in a deal for Carmelo, then on a scale of 1 to 4, how willing are you to part with him?
I ask because that may be what it comes down to. "No deal w/o EJ," I can hear Denver say. If so, then we may need to do some soul searching.
In the recent poll concerning our trade ceiling, less than 7% were willing to include EJ in the package. But is that a hard "NO," or are you willing to reconsider? In the 11th hour, when push comes to shove, and the rubber hits the road, just how firm are your convictions?
How willing are you to include EJ in a package for Melo?
1. Definitely not. EJ is a deal breaker. Case closed. (220 votes)
2. If it absolutely has to be, then perhaps. Include only minimal additional assets, and push for Denver (or a third party) to sweeten the deal on their end. (76 votes)
3. Including EJ is unpleasant, but if we have to do it, then we have to do it. Offer something like Kaman + EJ + not much else. (39 votes)
4. Sure, include EJ if we have to. It may be what's realistic, and hey, the team that ends up with the better player wins. (26 votes)
