Default Season Saving Trade (HOU/ATL)

Hey folks. Been awhile. Playing around with the trade machine tonight and came up with what I feel would save this team. Suns take it all day for sure... not sure about HOU or ATL biting on it, but some pieces could change if need be.


PHX IN

J Smith 11.7
K Martin 10.6
TEP 1.8

24.1 in

PHX OUT

R Lopez ATL 1.8
M Pietrus ATL 5.3
V Carter HOU 17.5
PHX 1st HOU
ORL 1st HOU
4 mill $ HOU

24.6 out

Nash / Dragic
K-Mart / Studs
Hill / Chilly
J-Smooth / Warrick / Lawal
Gortat / Frye / Siler

Suns cure the logjam at the wing and end up as possible contenders.


HOU IN

V Carter 17.5
PHX 1st
ORL 1st
4 mill $

17.5 in

HOU OUT

K Martin PHX 10.6
L Scola ATL 7.7

18.3 out

Lowry / Brooks / Smith
Carter / Lee
Battier / Williams / Budinger
Jeffries / Hill / Patterson
Miller / Hayes

Time for HOU to blow it up. Carter, Yao expire... Battier, Brooks, Hayes, Jeffries are also expiring. HOU goes into 2012 with only 21.3 on the books if they let everyone expire. Ultimate flexibility going into the new CBA, and 3 1st round picks. They can sign whoever they want.


ATL IN

R Lopez 1.8
M Pietrus 5.3
L Scola 7.7

14.8 in

ATL OUT

J Smith PHX 11.7
TEP 1.8

13.5 out

Ja Crawford / Bibby / Teague
Johnson / Pietrus / Jo Crawford
Williams / Evans / Wilkins
Horford / Scola / Sy
Lopez / Pachulia / Powell

ATL cuts Thomas and Collins. They slide Horford back to PF and stick Lopez in at C. J-Smith for Scola is a downgrade, but I still think ATL ends up better off both in the starting lineup and on the bench.

The numbers work, but Carter and Peete can't go until Feb 18.


So what say you?
