View Full Version : LaFrenz on trading block

got this from another site:

The Nuggets have been entertaining trade talk involving Raef LaFrentz. The Forward/Center is unhappy in Denver, steaming mostly from the teams failure to ink him to a contract extension, but also because he continues to be the focal point of Issel's complaints about effort. Sources close to the situation say LaFrentz actually made concessions in the negotiations, offering to take slightly less than market value to get a deal done, and the Nuggets still passed.
The Nuggets are not actively pursuing trade talk, according to sources, but say teams are coming to them. The Nuggets do want full value for LaFrentz, and because of his salary (still under a rookie contract), he likely would not return a similar skilled player, straight up. Once Antonio McDyess returns to the lineup, the Nuggets may get serious about LaFrentz, one thing is for sure, they will likely move him before the trade deadline.

Raef would be sweet as Bradley's backup. The two-headed monster would re-emerge..perhaps better than before. Now if only Kiki were to accept Esch in exchange..

Raef would be an excellent backup to Big #44... He is a very good rebounder and interior scorer who also has some outside scoring ability with his jumpshot...

This shouldn't be against bradley, but I would go for Raef as starting center, I like his game and he's got some shooting touch.
