Trade Deadline Approaching...
Who do you think are some teams that are going to trade players? Will Magic move Dwight? If so, where?
Personally, I'd like to see Dwight move to Golden State. I know thats not one of his choices, but with a core of Dwight and Curry and an up and coming coach in Mark Jackson I think they would be a very tough team.
Trade: Ellis, Udoh/Lee, Biedris, Rush/Wright and 2 first rounders for Dwight and Hedo.
Also some teams I obviously see making moves would be the Celtics, Lakers, Rockets, New Orleans, and New Jersey. As for dark horse teams I could see the Suns pulling off a trade, maybe the Mavs, and possibly the Knicks as well (even though that wouldn't be a very dark horse team cuz the Knicks are always active around trade time.)
What are some realistic trades you think could go down? (please no BS trades with like Kobe for Pierce or something)
He said he didnt want to go there. stop it.
Lakers will get a PG. They are a Ramon Sessions away from being That Team again. They aren't or shouldnt move Pau or Bynum though, they are too dominante inside.
Who they going to give up for Sessions?
"The Lakers have an $8.9 million trade exception, acquired from the Dallas Mavericks for Lamar Odom, to absorb salary. Sessions makes $4.3 million this season and has a player option for $4.6 million for the 2012-13 season."
Why would Dwight want to extend with GS after they give up all that for him?
If anything happens I'd put my money with minnesota being involved.. Gaping hole at SG and way to many PF's with the PT they can offer... Thinking a Ben Gordon/Nick Young type player...
Minny giving up Beasley and Derrick Williams as priciples in a trade for Monte Ellis and Biedrins. Monte and Biedrins can run with Rubio and Minny would still have Tolliver, Randolph and Johnson as tweener 3's. Those are that that hard to fine and since Kahn demands a roster with at least 5 of them he can pull off some other deals. This would allow David Lee to be traded for a mid to late first round pick also. The Warriors are 2 to 3 years from contention and they need to act like it. Dwight Howard.......... come on son...... Klay slides in at the two and guaratees the Warriors finish with a back enough record to keep there protected pick this year.
I bet Chris Kaman gets moved soon.
Houston have all those guys on rookie deals with the 4th year option not picked up like Thabeet and Flynn so I could see them perhaps looking to try and do something with those.
Total wildcard could be that a contender maybe tries to snag Jamieson from Cleveland or the Cavs buy him out and he gets picked up and they make a saving and also don't do quite so well for the rest of the season to improve their draft position
