Utah-Orlando Trade Idea
The Magic have been rumored to be shopping Vince Carter, and the Jazz would most likely like to get rid of Andrei Kirilenko so I though what about a Kirilenko for Carter swap? It works under teh cap and it would be an interesting situation for both teams.
SG Carter(Matthews would be the 6th man)
SF Miles(Trading Kirilenko opens up some more playing time for Hayward)
SG Redick(He would be able to start if Carter leaves)
PF Lewis(Slide Lewis to the 4 where he can play and start Kirilenko at the 3)
What do you guys think bout this trade idea?
I think I'd rather have Kirilenko though. He is a better all around player, and Carter isn't what he used to be. Plus it will be nice to have Kirilenko contract coming off the books after this coming season. I wouldn't want to get locked into another bad contract.
Only Issue I see is Orlando wants to play Lewis at the 3 more.
He's been playing the 4 for like 3 years now lol
VC only has one year left in his deal.
Shot selection...he has a tough enough time with Kirilenko's. LOL
It doesn't really address much of a need for either team, other then shaking things up. Lewis never has been, and never will be a real power forward. I agree he should be shifted to the three or dealt.
I'd rather the Jazz got some length with guys like Gortat or Bass.
