One other thought (thinking outside the box)
Bass + Lee for Danny Granger (if healthy)
This is an idea I could get behind. I doubt the Pacers do it but if they would I'd take it in a second. I'd even give them a 1st to do it.
I also think that if we moved Bass and Lee we'd have more minutes at SF. Pierce would have to play a bit more SG while Avery and possibly less overall minutes when he gets back. Green would get more minutes at PF and it would give Danny Granger a while to get healthy. It also opens up a roster spot for Kenyon Martin.
Go after Favors on Kanter... they'll offer Millisap... and eventually you can settle on Big Al
We can't really afford Jefferson. We kind of can but it would take Green and Bass and someone else who makes at least the vet's minimum. I would do it but we'd have to find a FA small forward. Oh yeah and we have to pay them as little as possible. I love the idea of Millsap though. Guy is a force in the paint.
Of course you can trade Green for another position of need.
Then trade a lesser big man for a lesser SF.
Okay, I know you can. I was saying it's not a great idea. Mostly because getting a proficient SF within our salary constraints will be tough. We invested a lot in Green not only for this team but for the future. There are SFs we could get. None of them will do much for guarding Carmelo, James or Durant. And I guess I have to hope Green might.
Here are some other mid-season options to look at:
Gortat (it would take a lot)
Bargnani (he will fit in here with his complete lack of rebounding)
Okafor (same salary as Josh Smith but probably easier to trade for)
