And to "Logic", if the Pistons were truly interested in Josh Smith, I think they're better off going after him this summer when he becomes a free agent.I wasn't suggesting that they would be interested in him long term. A trade for Prince and Maxiell would improve the team this year and then his contract goes off the books, unless he meshes really well (hard to imagine) and then they could try and resign him. But with both Maggette and Smith potenitally of the books it could free a lot of $$$ for a free agent(s) (though not sure who) and they have bodies to platoon the SF also, though that is never a good option.
Not sure what J.J.'s salary is, but I could see Memphis acquiring him for the trade exception we got in the Cleveland deal. That would be sweet. If Prince and Davis mesh like I think they will, Reddick could be the final piece for a team that will be one nobody wants to play come playoff time.
That is a very drastic trade for all three teams, two of which still in the Playoff hunt. Don't see Minnesota giving up on Love this quickly, and throwing in Pekovic is just pure cluelessness.
My Lakers brethren didn't feel too good about it plus some players change because Sully is out but here you go...Lakers trade Pau and Artest get Pierce Garnett and Shved...Celtics trade Pierce Garnett Bradley and Green and 1st round pick top3 protected get KLove Pekovich Artest and Ridnour...Wolves trade Love Pekovich and Ridnour get Pau Green Bradley and 1st round pick Celtics...money clears what do you think...?
I think the Jazz are going to go all in with this current roster and let their contracts expire. Of the upcoming upcoming free agents in Utah, Mo Williams is the only one I could see returning to the team next season even though he is currently hurt, as all he has backing him up are a couple of old guys. I wouldn't guarantee even that, though. Detroit is going to have a boat loaf of cap space and will likely look for a pure PG. I could also see Williams and his big game experience ending up there...
Where are the Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap trade ideas?
