Default Trade Idea: Diaw + Diop for Brand

The Sixers are trying to dump Brand due to their current standings and it appears though they need to reshape their roster. Assuming the Sixers don't improve their record soon enough, Brand won't have a place in Sixers' rotation. So now here's a chance to fill the hole at PF. Brand's recent records are very impressive and it's time to take advantage of other teams misery.

Diaw + Diop + maybe a 2nd rounder as sweetner for Brand will definitely improve our team. However, I think the Sixers will ask for Mohammed instead of Diop due to the length of their contracts.

Brand's contract is long and luxurious but since our FO has acquired Jax, we shouldn't retract from any opportunity to improve our roster. Assuming we do get Brand, this coming offseason's move will be re-signing Felton only, and that shouldn't be difficult since salary cap is down.

I'm more than ready to say goodbye to Diaw. How about you guys? (any girls?)

I can't see how trading to bigs for 1 would help us. I could see us doing Diop and either Murray, Law, or Henderson for a big, but that's about it.

This girl is more than ready to say goodbye to Diaw. He is a liability. Not willing to let go of Diop at least until Chandler is back. Definitely don't want to get rid of Nazr.

I like aquiring Brand despite him being a very bad contract, as think that's the only way a very good player will come to the Cats, in a trade where a team flat wants to dump some1 a bit like the Jax deal. He's not amazing but not been just average either. We have so many guards that I'd have thought one would have to be included in the deal alongside either Diaw or I'd even try and get rid of Chandler instead. Diaw would back up Wallace at the 3 and play a little PF but mainly have Brand PF and Mohammed playing Center. Think he's been good and rather have him and Brand than Chandler or Diaw starting alongside him. Think Diaw would get back to what he's good at then, Wallace always is less effective at the 4 and think Diaw's been stuck there too long. Similar deal, he looks worse than he is cos basically out of position.

As for which guard to send either Graham or Murry might have value (and would clear a few mins for Henderson who's been good, while leaving coach with the other as a vet back-up to Jax) plus maybe have to include Law or something to make up saleries but don't think that a big loss to get Brand in. Diop or Mohammed would make up the salery in a deal but I'm not sure Philly would want either to back up their own over-paid center in Dalembert.

Is this trade really a possibility or are we engaging in wishful thinking? If it's for real then we'll definitely make it into the playoffs this season.

I think the one thing that could hold this type of deal up would be Johnson still looking to sell the team. Acquiring Brand means acquiring more future salary and I do believe that was part of why Mek was sent out.

Wasn't it Philly who was said to have called every team looking to make a deal? Brand is absolutely on the block and most teams won't want him and that contract. In our short history we've formed a habit of taking on salary for more talent...so if they can talk Bob into it this deal looks exactly like what LB/MJ would go for.

We'll know for sure if Bonnell posts something like "Bobcats Definitely Not Interested In Brand".
