Would you trade?

I normally don't get into the whole trade machine thing, but the recent flurry of activity got me wondering if we might be able to snag Mike Conley.

Memphis now has three rookie point guards, a hole in the PF position, and has adopted an up-tempo style of play.

My trade would send Memphis: Channing Frye and Sergio for Conley.

How this helps Memphis:

  1. Sergio could be the next Steve Nash.
  2. He's had over a season of...seasoning.
  3. Frye would be a good player to pair with Darko in the up-tempo style. He'd also get some solid PT.
  4. Memphis isn't taking on a bad contract to make the deal.
How this helps Potland:
  1. We get a solid rookie PG whose style would complement Roy and Oden.
  2. We'd clear a roster spot for Rudy.
How this could be seen negatively:
  1. Big for small is never good.
  2. This doesn't help our PG overload.
  3. Both Oden and Conley are represented by Conley's dad.
  4. Team chemistry is good. Why mess with it during the season?
  5. ANOTHER point guard of the future?
  6. We're already short big guys, and trading Frye doesn't help.
  7. KP already said he isn't actively shopping, and changing his story now would permanently tarnish his reputation with the players.
  8. Trading young players with a little experience for a younger player with no experience is bad.
I believe Conley is another "it" guy, and those are rare. Being able to get one that already has a rapport with your future center is a big plus. Although I'd be sorry to lose both Frye and Sergio, I'd pull the trigger on this trade.

Would you? Would Memphis? Would KP?
