Trading Sooner vs. Later?


Is it worth making a trade sooner rather than later? Sometimes I worry that with each passing game our assets are depreciating in the eyes of other GMs? Seraphin-who had a great summer- still cant hardly crack the lineup. Crawford --a big positive at the end of last year -- still thinks this is the goodman league, and blatche/young have basically proven themselves not to be true starters. For the seond year players (crawford/seraphin/ wall of course, and even booker) no improvment is a very very bad sign. Does anyone on this board really think Seraphins gonna be an all star one day? Doubtful - but other coaches who've only seen him once or twice probably don't know that becase they don't have the luxury of watching him in practice everyday. Lets face it, JC has a lot more trade value now than he will after playing another 50 games without cracking 45% shooting.

Not to mention a slew of rookies around the league--many of whom we watched the past few weeks-- are playing are playing great and needless to say, making the supposedy more experienced vesely look more and more like a bust every game (although I thought he showed some good signs today). N. Vucavic, kyrie irving, chandler parsons (who really impressed me today), shumpert, rubio/Dwilliams all look far better than vesely thus far. I guess what im saying is, maybe the time to try to make a move is now before other coaches learn how overated some of these guys really are. Good things do not always come to those who wait.


just to clarify, i'm not implying vesely or seraphin are busts - i still like them both. I'm just saying there is a risks involved with when young players play and dont produce. for example to me, corey brewer had a lot more trade value after his first year with all that potential than he does now.
