Joel Przybilla: NOT Untradeable

Lets face the facts.. Kevin Pritchard has made a statement at the trade deadline that the team chemistry comes first... and that he is looking to add pieces which will help us in the long run... the really long run, and not just guarantee us a championship in the next 3 years. We're looking towards building a dynasty, one that will still be in contention for the championship in 10 years. 

As much as we all love Przybilla for his hustle, daily effort, his interior D and the fact that he really was the glue of this team in the season, I think that he is entering his prime and will probably start declining about 2-3 years from now. Dont get me wrong, he will surely provide us with his best effort in this span, and will continue to contribute even after that period of time. But what im saying is that if we are faced with an opportunity to add a missing piece that we seriously need and would help us in the long run, and Joel is the key in such a trade, I think we should seriously consider it. I think that after this season, Joel's stock has risen after teams have seen how good of a center he can be, and any playoff team would probably consider snatching him away from us, but the question is: At what cost ? I think its safe to say no playoff team looking to improve would ever trade away its franchise player... but a lottery team desperate to make its way into the playoffs would surely consider making a sacrifice in order to acquire a center of Joel's caliber.
