Trade season is upon us so here we go!

Rozier + filler(s) for Jonathon Simmons

Rozier + Nader + Larkin works salary-wise. Alternatively, we can do Rozier + Yabu, but imo that's an overpay. Technically, Simmons and Larkin cannot be traded until December 15.

The Magic are in rebuilding mode. Elfrid is due for a payday next summer. Not sure if they see him as their starting PG moving forward. Rozier has 2 years left on his rookie deal and is about the same age as Gordon (and most of their other prospects).

Simmons is way older than Rozier but he is on a team friendly contract till 2020.

2017-18 $6,300,000
2018-19 $6,000,000
2019-20 $5,700,000

C's rotation after the trade

Irving - Smart
Brown - Simmons
Tatum - Ojeleye
Morris - Theis
Horford - Baynes

Great idea, but the problem is, what is the filler? You'd have to include Morris, Baynes, Smart, Tatum, or Yabu to get up to make the trade work financially. I'm unwilling to do that.

But I do like Simmons.

Think Orlando like Simmons too much, as they should. Really wanted him last offseason

I love Rozier, but the Magic chuckle at that. Throwing in Yabu or Theis might tempt them...
