Trade Idea (ATL,SAS,POR)
+ 1st rounder from SAS going to Portland.
+ Atlanta gets the Bostons second rounder via Portland.
There have been rumors of SAS wanting Josh Smith.
Portland gets DeJuan Blair and SA first round pick. Portland isn't going to make the playoffs with this team this year (25-27 with a difficult schedule) so this will help with the rebuild. DeJuan Blair fills the roll of Center this year with Meyers still coming off the bench.
San Antonio gets Josh Smith for the price of Stephen Jackson, DeJuan Blair and a late 1st round pick likely the 30th pick.
Atlanta get Stephen Jackson and J.J Hickson and Second rounder.
Blazers get a more undersized Center (Blair) for an already undersized Center (Hickson)
Spurs commit highway robbery
Atlanta does get Jackson's expiring contract, but they can get better than that for J-Smoove
+ Atlanta gets a future 1st rounder from SAS
+ Portland gets this years 1st rounder from SAS
Can you please make an unbiased trade? San Antonio isn't giving up anything, how do you keep Splitter or Green when trying to trade for Smth?
I Adjusted the trade but trade machine won't load it
SAS get Josh Smith, J.J Hickson and Sasha Pavlovic
POR get DeJuan Blair, Danny Green
ATL get Tiago Splitter, SJax
I'm not going to neg you, I like trade ideas but Portland isn't te right third team for a trade, they already have three point shooters in batum and Mathews. And they don't need to get more smaller with Dejuan Blair, try using Denver as a third team, they have alot of young players and talented 7 footers that Atlanta covets
They rather let him walk at the end of the season vs deal him for nothing. Unless they make a deal that nets a young starting center, a young starting wing, and/or high draft picks, ATL is better off waiting till the end of the year and letting him walk.
If San Antonio can get Smith without giving up any of the big 3 or Leonard they should definitely do it even if they lose some good role players. To me a lineup of Parker, Ginobili, Leonard, Smith and Duncan all complement each other excellently.
