First off, I am not insulting Morey in any way. I love Daryl Morey and everything he's done. He's snagged us two great picks from the Knicks while getting a great player named Jordan Hill (some of you might have seen him on the court once or twice). He got as an amazing player in Kevin Martin, but it came at the cost of a fan-favorite and a player who was having a breakout season, Carl Landry.
Landry was 3rd in the league in 4th quarter scoring at the time that he was traded last year. He brought an physical edge to this team that we all loved. After Landry was traded, Scola decided to go beast mode with his extra minutes and his game has been superb, but the Rockets are lacking a consistent 4th quarter scorer, something Landry excelled in last year. The Kings and the Rockets are both struggling heavily this season.
So the question I'm asking is if you were Daryl right now, and the Kings GM (apologies for not knowing his name) called up and asked you to trade Kevin Martin straight-up for Carl Landry, would you?
This is what are lineup might look like if the trade went down.
