The trade machine thread! Post your trade ideas!
I'll start with 2 of my own
Why GSW does it : Lose Maggs' contract and get someone to help out Ellis. Can do no wrong here.
Why Nola does it : West's future is already cloudy (supposedly) and they probably won't make the playoffs this year. They badly need a wing scorer and Maggs helps them there, Wright can take West's spot next year, Amundson provides MUCH needed deph and Kapono is a huge expiring contract. Basicaly it's a move for a scorer to help Paul and Wright can flourish with a great point.
Why Suns do it : They want something for Amare if they lose him right? Why let him go for nothing? West is a nice replacement for him and can fill in very well. Wright is there to make it all work but they can use him on the wing a little. I think West with Nash can be just as good as Amare and provides much better defense.
Why Philly does it : They need an upgrade up front and I think there one guy away from being a great team. Honestly, I think they should risk it. Very risky move but could payoff big time. Losing Iggy and the big expiring will hurt but I think Amare could help those wounds. To resign him though will need a max contract.
Why Dallas does it : They seem to want Kmart and Howard has struggled this year. It's that simple and getting two expirings (one that happens to be a big one) doesn't hurt either.
Why the Wiz do it : Fire sale time! Mike James says he wants out and Butler seems to be on the block. Howard fills in for him for the rest of the year and provides a big expiring contract, Ross and Sergio are also expirings. Basically shed cap.
Why Sactown does it : Butler could be the piece that puts them back into the playoff picture, Matt Carroll is there to make the deal work but a sharpshooter can't hurt right? Tyreke and Butler together sounds scary. And it's not like loosing Sean May and Sergio is going to be a big loss.
