i agree, i think he needs a change of scenery, what bout a sorry team. Toronto? idk what they would give up. NY? they can do a deal with marbury invovled.

Toronto and Charlotte look like the teams that would be willing to give up alot to get him.

Toronto would have to probobly do either Chris Bosh [which is highly highly unlikely] Or a deal that might look like Joey Graham and a 1st round pick

Charlotte would have to do Brevin Knight, Primoz Brezic, and a 1st round pick but it would give them a sure fire scorer...but honestly i'd rather them just stay how they are and have a shot at getting Adam Morrison

i think he would be a better fit in Toronto, but remember what happend with him when he got drafted to Vancover

He'll go to whichever team offers most that can benifit the magic...Highly doubt this but maybe he'll go back to houston

Could you imagine a scoring fest of

Francis
Tmac
Yao Ming

Francis isnt worth trading for. When things are going great hes a really good player, as soon as a team hits a hard stretch hes a headache. I wouldn't sniff him if I was a GM, hes just not a winner, hes weak-minded.

i really feel a trade to NY could work, i dont think isaih likes marbury, and he hasnt made a trade in a while. MAYBE chicago, but i doubt it cuz chicago is tryin to trade for a bigman. What about Portland for a Zach Randolph type deal? what about Denver for a Nene deal?

I know Blueprint hasn`t posted in this thread but I know his opinion on Steve Francis and I agree with it...
The fact is Francis isn`t worth all the players you`ve mentioned, especially great young players like CB4 or Joey Graham and a 1st rounder. I`m not even sure that would`ve worked with Rob Babcock still at the helm.
And even then whats the logic behind that trade ? The Raps certainly don`t need a player who`s got a past history of being a headcase. He`s worn out his welcome in Houston and Orlando. I doubt the Raps will go fishing for him.

I doubt that we would want him back. Even if we did, we couldn't trade anybody to equal his talent because most of our main guys has been hurt the whole season. Francis is a cry baby and he never stays happy for a long period.

The Lakers need a guard but it would be a difficult deal since the Lakers don't want to give up Odom...
