Terrance JonesHouston Receives:
1st Round Pick from Boston
2nd Round pick from MilMilwaukee Receives:
Why for Boston: I still believe this teams biggest need is a legit big (6'9+) who can bang down low, rebound, and alter some shots. He obviously isn't what he was in Philly but he is still a solid role player. Also, his deal expires after this year which would essentially get us out of Bass's contract and we could hopefully resign him on the cheap as a role player for us.
Also, Boston gets a prospect back for giving up Melo. This draft is considered just as bad as this year was good so I'm not concerned with losing the pick.
Why for Houston: One of Houston's biggest needs is a PF who can space the floor. Patterson and Morris have been taking turns starting as neither can really stay consistent. Playing with Lin and Harden would open a ton of jumpers for Bass. I originally got the idea of Bass going here when I saw some Houston fans proposing that they pursue Bass. He's a hard worker who would fit in with Houstons young crowd and become a vet presence.
Why for Milwaukee: Obvious. They flip a big who is riding the bench for a young big nearly 10 years younger.
Biggest issue I see is it does complicate Houston's cap a little
but maybe Bass puts up some solid numbers and they can flip him around the draft. I don't see the sense in them throwing a max contract at Milsap, Smith, or Jefferson this summer. In a few years Harden, Lin, and Asik alone will cost them 50 mill
