Default Trade for Lebron

Ok, I'm sorry to make another Lebron-Thread, but I swear, it's my first. I was just thinking about what trades would be realistic for Lebron to be made. I mean from the cap-cirtumstance (pre-lockout) and from value-circumstance. The one obvious which come to mind is the Dwight-Trade, I guess straight up, but are there any other possibilities? Not that it will happen, because it won't, but just for fun what would be semi-accapteble for the Heat.

Default Re: Trade for Lebron

I have a few in mind...........
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Atlanta:
http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...radeId=3hvspad
Key players moving:
James, Miller, Haslem for Horford, Smith, Teague, Williams

PG: Chalmers/ Teague/ Rookie
SG: Wade
SF: Williams
PF: Bosh/ Smith
CT: Horford/ Anthony
I would probably move Smith on for another player.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boston:
Rondo and Pierce for James and Miller
PG: Rondo
SG: Wade
SF: Pierce
PF: Bosh
CT: Anthony
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chicago:
James and Anthony for Deng and Noah
More picks etc would need to be added.... it would help if the Bulls had a decent back-up PG to include in this deal.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Indiana:
George, Granger and Hibbert for James and Miller
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Memphis:
James for Gasol and Gay
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Milwaukee:
Bogut, Jennings, Mbah a Moute, Delfino for James, Anthony
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Orlando:
Howard for James
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Phoenix:
Nash, Gortat, Dudley for James, Big Z, House
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sacramento:
Evans, Fredette and Dalembert (re-signed) for James
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

That would round out the Heat:
PG: Nash
SG: Wade
SF: Dudley
PF: Bosh
CT: Gortat


I personally like the Memphis trade, but only if Joel Anthony goes to the Grizzlies

The only one here that Miami would listen to is the Orlando one.

You don't think they would like:
PG: Chalmers
SG: Wade
SF: Gay
PF: Bosh
CT: Gasol

Lebron is worth more than Gay and Gasol.

This is the best player in the league, and their crown jewel we are talking about.

That's the only other one. It would be pretty scary actually.

From the financial point of view, yes; however, in terms of basketball talent being exchanged, it's quite fair. And it would make Miami much more balanced and dangerous.

Wade is the clear number 1 option, with Gay and Bosh 2A and 2B. Gasol is the perfect compliment.

How is it close in basketball talent? Neither one is even a top 20 player in the NBA. If you trade the best player in basketball, you should at least get back a top 10 player in return.

Cavs value increased 200 million dollars in the 7 years lebron was there. Heat value increases 60 million after lebron signs contract, coincidence? Lebron brings money to teams that no other player besides maybe Kobe brings. Heat aren't trading him.

I think they pick up the phone if the Magic call about a Howard trade.
