New Orleans Gets: 3rd pick
Charlotte Gets: J.R. Smith and 12th and 15th pick
Phoenix gets: 13th pick
Philadelphia gets: 21st and 27 pick
Houston gets: 5th overall pick
Atlanta gets: 8th overall pick and Luther Head
I think these three trades make sense for all teams. Charlotte gets their shooting guard plus depth with two picks and New Orleans moves up. Phoenix gets their man (Saer Sene) while jumping ahead of Utah and Philly gets their man (Shawne Williams) at a better value. Houston gets their guy (Brandon Roy) which nullifies Head's loss and Atlanta gets their guy (Shelden Williams) at a better value. What do y'all think
With the public not fully sold on the Bobcats after Shinn's messy exit, I'm not sure the 'Cats would be will to take on a young player with questionable habits. Also, dealing with the Hornets could be seen as unpopular as well. I just don't think Mike would bite on this one. The other deals make a lot of sense.
