Marreese Speights could be traded again

Marreese Speights has done himself well after being acquired by the Cleveland Cavaliers. In fact, he's done so well that he might have earned himself a bigger contract than his $4.5 million player option that he can pick up following the 2012-13 season.

And that is why the Cavs might be willing to shop the 25-year-old forward. Though the rumor-mill has not had much chatter regarding Cleveland other than the talk of LeBron James' return to the Cavs come the summer of 2014, Marc Stein of ESPN reported a few weeks back that Cleveland was looking to shed some salaries. Speights could be one of them, especially if the team believes he'll become a free agent. Cleveland would attempt to ship off one or both of Omri Casspi and Daniel Gibson in a trade involving Speights.

Definitely would like the c's to get speights if possible, very good offense and solid rebounding for relatively cheap.

Would like to add him as well but what would we be able to offer for him? The Cavs seem to be looking for young cheap talent or probably a first round pick. Neither of what we should be giving up for Speights. They wont want the salary of Bass.

Maybe a three way

Bos gets : speights and gibson

Mem sends trade exception

I mean if its a pure salary dump then we could look at something like this.

http://espn.go.com/nba/trademachine?tradeId=agt5h77

Boston trades: Bass and a second round pick
Boston gets: Speights and Casspi

Cleveland Trades: Speights and Casspi
Gets: Wesely Johnson (4 mil expiring) and draft pick

Phoenix Trades: Johnson
Gets: Bass

Cavs dump 6 mil off next years books and get a draft pick. Suns use some of their cap room to insert a veteran in Bass. Boston gets a young big man and cap relief from Casspi next season. But if Speights option doesnt kick in he might want a bigger contract.

PICK 2: Trail Blazers
PG: Lillard/ReggieJackson
SG: D. Green/Miller/Wroten
SF: Leonard/Prince
PF: Aldridge/Diaw

Only guy it would make sense to trade for Speights is Bass. And Cleveland (like the rest of the league) is not trading a friendly deal for Bass.

Can't trade Terry or Lee for him -- not enough guard depth to justify a marginal pick-up like Speights.

Yeah the C's don't have "filler".

From the story it sounded like the reason they would move Speights is because he might opt out.  That would suggest they don't value an expiring much.

Speights isn't an upgrade on Bass, so I don't think it makes sense from Boston's perspective.

If they want cap space for the summer of 2014, they don't want to a situation where he declines his option and they have to choose between giving him a long-term deal that decreases their future cap space or losing him for nothing.

He is in my book. He's taller a better rebounder and plays the low post offensively. From what I know he's not great defensively, but Bass was thought as a poor defender before he came here as well.

But then we'd need another PF to stretch the floor. Not Green though

Not sure many would agree with you on this one...
