3 Team Trade Idea Bos/Sac/Mem
« on: January 04, 2013, 03:04:26 AM »
Just a random trade idea that i think seems realistic for us to get Cousins.

http://basketball.realgm.com/tradechecker/saved_trade/6193870

Boston sends out: Jeff Green, Jared Sullinger, Fab Melo

Boston receives: Demarcus Cousins, John Salmons

Sacramento Sends out: Demarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, John Salmons

Sacramento receives: Rudy Gay, Fab Melo

Memphis sends out: Rudy Gay

Memphis receives: Tyreke Evans, Jeff Green, Jared Sullinger

Draft picks may be included where need be.  I think this trade helps all teams included. Who says no?  Memphis maybe? I'm not sure.

Not a bad idea. I think it would be a long shot for Memphis to do this because they are winning and playing well right now. Rudy Gay leads them in scoring and I'm not sure they trade him for 3 relatively unproven players.

Sacramento gets Rudy Gay into a total mess with no supporting cast at all, so, why would they say yes to this trade and take over his hefty contract with no goals to accomplish, I wonder.

Memphis definitely shuts it down, since they are already doing well with Gay, and will be reluctant to mess up with the things. Especially if you consider the fact that they are to give up their starter SF and get back a backup caliber player in return to fill his spot.

TP for this idea.  One of the most balanced three ways I've seen.  Memphis does hesitate, but only because of Tyreke's knee issue.  Once T. Evans is healthy they kinda hafta say yes I think.  Sully is gonna be good and can learn from Zach Randolph.  Jeff Green remains a backup 3.  Tony Allen shifts to SF, not ideal but he can still defend the 2.  Remember Memphis was good without Gay too, even when Mayo wasn't doing much.......

the concern for Memphis is chemistry, but they aren't winning a title as is (though I'd like that...2 cnd to Boston right now).  they get even deeper and better with this trade IMO.  T. Evans health the only possible hang up. 

Caveat in the form of a question:  How great are Gay's non-scoring contributions?  If they're much better than I realize, then that could kill this idea......

He's rebounding decently, although it's not something elite for his height and athleticism. His steal and block numbers look good, but he's not a great facilitator. Actually, I can say that just by looking his game, not his stats. He's not a Nick Young in this league, but he isn't an LBJ, either (by passing ability).

So, I'd say he's doing enough not to get labeled as an entirely one-dimensional player. And he has one thing that makes up for all other areas in which he's lacking production: He's clutch.

Boston doesn't give up near enough in this trade for it to even get past an immediate hang up of the phone from the other two teams.
2014 Pick 2 Draft 18th pick of 20
Sacramento Kings
Starters - Isaiah Thomas, Eric Gordon, Jimmy Butler, Dirk Nowitzki, Demarcus Cousins
Bench - Kendall Marshall, Michael Carter-Williams, Vince Carter, Wesley Johnson, Marcus Morris, Miles Plumlee, Nerlens Noel

In a vacuum maybe but:

1. All trades are risky
2. No trade is perfectly balanced in reality
3. if a team gets what it wants in terms of direction, then abstract talent evaluation matters less.
4. There's more than just talent in this situation, there's a disgruntled player in the mix

Looks like Memphis is shopping Rudy Gay according to rumors today.

I agree that we don't send out the better talent in this trade, but we do take on Sac. headcase and one of their bad contracts.

Don't mind the concept, but what Memphis needs more than anything is wings who can shoot, especially if they trade Gay.

In this trade they get poor shooters -- and one who is grossly overpaid -- even if they grab a nice piece in Sully.

Also, Hollinger is neither an Evans nor a Green fan. Remember, PER is his jam...

Sorry, Charlie.
