TRADE THAT IS GOOD FOR D-WADE
THIS TRADE WLL HELP MIKE BEASLEY REACH HIS FULL UPSIDE ALONG WITH D-ROSE AND ALSO TYRUS THOMAS WILL REACH HIS UPSIDE BY PLAYING WITH STEVE NASH AS A SHAWN MARION ROLE AND ALSO SUNS WILL RECIEVE 2 FIRST ROUNDS PICK FROM MIAMI
i like the trade, but i think phoenix wants to get rid of richardson as well as stoudemire.. So i say:
Chicago trades Thomas, Miller, Pargo, Hinrich, Salmons or James
Miami trades Beasley, O'Neal, Chalmers, and Wright
Phoenix trades Stoudemire and Richardson
Chicago gets Beasley, O'Neal, and Richardson
Miami gets Stoudemire, Hinrich, Pargo, and Salmons or James(matters if they want expiring contract or a guy who actually will play and make an impact)
Phoenix gets Thomas, Miller, Chalmers, and Wright
what you think about this?
I have been reading that they want to get rid of Richardson along with Amar'e. I don't get why the Cavs just get both. It's not like they have to worry about salaries they're trying to win a Championship, and Jason Richardson is a better starter than Anthony Parker.
its called luxury tax.. if you got over 1 dollar, you gotta pay that extra 1 dollar.. richardson has 13.3 mil this year 14.4 next year. that means cavs would have to pay 27 mil + 27 mil for jason richardson.. thats freakign expensive
and i think the firs two trades that were proposed all favored chicago. for the first trade, i dont think suns will get rid of barbosa, so what about just changing barbosa to chicago's john salmon. and i think that would be a slightly more balance trade.
I understand the luxury tax, but you don't think Cleveland's owners would mind paying that luxury tax if it meant a championship for the city???? If Cleveland gets Amar'e and Richardson while having a bench of Parker, Varejao, Jawad Williams, Leon Powe, and possibly getting big Z back once the suns waive him. That is a solid 10 man rotation. That could compete against the Lakers, Celtics, and Magic.
Not to mention... Next year is the last year on Richardson's contract. They could trade him to a team looking for an expiring contract next season.
I understand the luxury tax. Do you realize that Cleveland is currently $24,385,235 over the cap? Their owner is clearly willing to spend, plus he's said it. Paying whatever they'd have to pay in luxury tax would be cheaper than losing LeBron to free-agency. Look at the Lakers... They're currently $33,641,066 over the cap. Teams that want to win, spend big.
The Cavs would also have to make the salaries match up or come within a certain percentage of matching up, so it's not like they'd be taking on Richardson's contract without shipping anything out. They'll end up taking back more than what they ship out, but it won't be as much as you're saying.
Back to the 3 way trade...
I am a huge Heat fan and a three team trade with Phoenix and Chicago could work out great for the heat. Hinrich is a solid PG and Stoudemire is the All Star caliber player that D-Wade needs. The Heat would gladly give up Beasley, Cook or Wright, Chalmers, and draft picks if it meant improving the team and resigning Wade. Personally, I think the heat would prefer a player that can play the 3 like Richardson or Salmons over Barbosa and both Phoenix and Chicago want to get rid of those players. A starting line up of Stoudemire, Haslem, Salmons, Wade, and Hinrich would be pretty formidable.
Phoenix would be getting cap relief whether they get O'Neal or Miller and plenty of young talent. With players like Thomas, Wright, Chalmers, or Cook as well as the Heat's two first round picks.
Beasley in Chicago is interesting and the Bulls want to unload Hinrich, Salmons, and Thomas. The only problem is that that are looking to do that so they can get a player named Dwyane Wade. I don't see them doing a trade with Miami for that reason. If they did this though and got Joe Johnson this summer, a lineup of Rose, Johnson, Deng, Beasley, and Noah is pretty good.
I think it is more likely they do a three team deal with Portland and Houston. Maybe Brad Miller and John Salmons to Houston, Kirk Hinrich to Portland, and Tracy McGrady, Steve Blake, Travis Outlaw to Chicago.
