Blockbuster Trade
« on: December 30, 2012, 11:36:51 AM »
Celtics receive:

Cousins
Evans
Salmons

Outgoing Salary: $17,214,625
Total Contract Value: $31.5M

Kings Receive:

Bradley
Sullinger
Lee
Green

Outgoing Salary: $15,322,720
Total Contract Value: $63M

We might have to throw in Melo at $1,254,720

Why for the Celtics:

Cousins: Obvious
Evans: Obvious
Salmons: Replaces Green at backup SF

Why for the Kings Reason #1:

Bradley: Obvious
Sullinger: Obvious

Why for the Kings Reason #2:

Kings get younger at SF:

Green
26 yrs old
$33M for 4 yrs

Salmons
33 yrs old
$24M for 3 yrs

Garcia
30 yrs old
2013 - 2014
Team Option
$6,400,000

Outlaw
28 yrs old
$9M for 3 yrs

Why for the Kings Reason #3:

Evans is a restricted free agent after this year and they will probably lose him as they will probably not match what he is offered

The difference between total contract values is about $31.5M and Evans will sign for way more than that; probably at least $40M and maybe $45M

Why for the Kings Reason #4:

Lee & Thorton at SG

New C's Depth Chart:

PG: Rondo/Barbosa
SG: Evans/Terry
C: Cousins/Collins/Wilcox
PF: Garnett/Bass/Vanardo
SF: Pierce/Salmons/Joseph

I'd do the trade faster than a Kim Kardashian marriage.

for those of you that say this won't happen...go read what people are saying about evans in sacto...they are going to lose him...that is becoming more apparent each day...the real question then becomes what can they get for him so they at least get something instead of nothing...so let me ask you this...what is your alternative for the kings to at least get something for evans?

Never will happen.  Sacramento could do better.

I can see Sac wanting to trade Cousins/Evans, and they don't exactly have a ton of leverage, but the deal as proposed lacks a good big coming back.  Sac will likely be looking to get a center.

I think a deal involving Utah might make the most sense.

Bos-  IN: Cousins, Salmons
      OUT: Green, Bradley, Sullinger
Sac-  IN: Jefferson, Green, Bradley
      OUT: Cousins, Evans, Salmons
Utah- IN: Evans, Sullinger
      Out: Jefferson

Might require some picks heading to Sac, but I'd say its fair return for all involved.

The Kings management is not that bad that they will consider this trade proposal.

the bottomline for the kings and petrie...they HAVE to listen...they will lose evans...cousins may have forced their hand...salmons is their oldest player and paid the most...it makes the most sense to trade the three of them in some kind of package...for everyone that says the kings won't listen...guess what...i don't see a lot of other teams able to put together a similar package...it probably will require a 3 team trade...but...if you look at a single trade partner...we are right there with anyone...

Except the sox actually gave up good players in that deal. That, and the kings are dirt poor and want to cut salary

This isn't baseball.  And the C's aren't just simply looking to dump salary.

so your against players with baggage despite their obvious talent, but you are FOR trading for Cousins?
