Trade idea (Bos/Utah/NO)
« on: January 15, 2013, 08:57:12 AM »
Just messing around.  There is a rumor that NO is shopping Eric Gordon.


http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=dx3yc3j


Boston sends Green, Bass and Melo

Receives Jefferson

Utah sends Jefferson and Bell

Receives Gordon and Bass

NO sends Gordon

Receives Green, Bell and Melo




I think Boston part is a bit light.  Maybe a 1st rounder thrown in there.  (only one since Jefferson could end up a one and done)


For Boston, they add the low post threat that and big man in the center when KG is off the floor.

For Utah, they open up time for Favor and Kanter while adding the potential of a top offensive SG to compliment the inside game.


For NO, they move forward with Rivers as their SG.  They add Green as their SF next to Rivers and Davis.  When Melo develops, they get the flexibility to move Davis to PF. 




Again, I think a 1st might have to go to NO.

I don't think they move Eric Gordon, they've played well with him back in the lineup. Right now, he may still be a bit disgruntled but they've got 3.5 more years to persuade him. NO has a nice, young core - the more he plays with Davis, Anderson, Aminu, and Vaquez, I think he'll start to see the potential and having fun again.

Salaries don't match in general, and with the hard cap, Boston needs the salaries to be pretty close to each other (probably within 2 million.)  So we'd need to send out about another $3-4 million.

Terrible deal for New Orleans.

No reason to give up Eric Gordon for role players. He is one of the best young star-talents in the league today. They are not giving him up without getting some star talent back in return.

Argh. Say no to Jefferson! Everywhere Jefferson goes a bad record follows him. Plus he is in his final year so if we wanted to resign him we'd have to dish out a boatload of cash. He wouldn't fit well with Rondo's style and he doesnt play defense.

Yeah, I can't imagine they would give up Gordon for a deal like that.

If they are going to give up Gordon and not ask the moon for him, I think he will be traded for Granger anyways.

I just think that Gordon is a figment of our imagination and is never going to play.

Actually, according to the trade checker, they do.

That's why I think this might work. 

Oft injured player who could be an offensive star for a offensive big man that is blocking the young talented big.

it must be me but I just don't see that kind of value in Gordon--not after all the health issues he's had.  If he had been healthy all along, sure, but not at this point.

Boston is sending $9.6 million in contracts and getting back $15 million?  Or have I missed something?  If that's right, Boston, can only take back 125% + $100k, so approximately $12.1 million.  I never use trade checkers, because I have faith in my arithmetic.

I think the original trade summary missed Bass going out from Boston.

So we give Green, Bass, and Melo to get Big Al?

No thanks.

Sorry.  Bass was a part of the trade (I put his destination there) but forgot to put him on the Celtics list.

Yeah, they traded away Chris Paul for Gordon... to turn him into Green, Melo, Bell?  Yikes!

I know that things change, but I think they gamble with Gordon's health here.

I could see the Hornets moving Gordon, but they would want the moon  for sure.  What if they moved anderson and Gordon, and got Stuckey, Monroe, and Granger?
