Instead if trying to convince trade partners our pieces are attractive, why not show them our pieces are versatile.
BOS sends: Brandon Bass, 2013 first & 2014 second round pick
BOS receives: Marcin Gortat
PHX sends: Marcin Gortat, Michael Beasley
PHX receives: Andrea Bargnani, Boston's 2013 first & 2014 second, Quincy Acy
TOR sends: Andrea Bargnani, Quincy Acy
TOR receives: Brandon Bass, Michael Beasley
Toronto wants Barg gone, and they get 2 solid players at positions they need to make a playoff push.
Phoenix wants a star, picks, prospects, or expirings. Here they get 3 of the 4 and the most crucial one, a star.
Any suggestions or alterations? The one doubt I had is that Phoenix possibly wasn't getting enough back for Gortat? They're also getting rid of Beasley, which is huge for them. This would also have to be after Jan. 15th, but according to RealGM trade checker, the salaries matched up. http://basketball.realgm.com/tradechecker/saved_trade/6193088
