Dallas/PHX/GOST Trade Idea??
I think this trade helps all teams involved. Let me know what you think
Dallas trades: Butler/Stevenson
receive: J-Rich, and Brandan Wright.
Why? Gives the Mavs a true "2" with better range than Butler. They get Brandan Wright to help their front court depth.
Atlanta trades: Marvin Williams/Josh Smith
receive: Caron Butler/Jared Dudley/Andris Beidrins
Why? The hawks want to play Horford at the 4, and this allows it. Josh Smith isn't a great 3, and I feel he is better served as a 4 in an up-tempo offense. Marvin needs new scenery, and Dudley replaces almost everything he does for the Hawks. Beans, and Horford makes a very difficult defensive front court for the Hawks. Butler is an expiring, and is better than Marvin.
Suns trade: Jason Richardson/Jared Dudley/Earl Clark
receive: Josh Smith/DeShawn Stevenson
Why? I feel the Suns need a 4 in a desperate way, and Smoove fits the system really well. Stevenson would either be traded for another 2 or bought out (Possibly Rudy Fernandez) The Suns give up a lot in this trade, but Smith could become great with Steve Nash.
receive: Marvin Williams/Earl Clark
Why? Beans seems like he is on his way out. And Wright seems like he needs a new team. Marvin fits in better with the Warriors, and could play 4 in a Nellie offense. Clark will not get time in Phoenix, and is versatile enough to find time with Nelson.
