Default Possible Trade to get the Sixers back on track

Although the players we receive back aren't that great at this point in there careers they both have very big contracts set to expire at the end of this year. Tell me what you think.

Sixers Trade:
Webber to the Knicks
Korver to Memphis

Memphis Trades:
Eddie Jones to the Sixers
Kyle Lowry to the Knicks
Hakim Warrick to the Knicks

Knicks Trade:
Steve Francis to Memphis
Maurice Taylor to the Sixers

With this trade the Sixers would be able to rid themselves of Webber's contract and receive two very large contracts set to expire at the end of this year. Eddie Jones could start at the shooting guard for the year and Mo Taylor could play the PF for the year with some other fillins. At the end of the year, the Sixers would be out of cap hell.

The Knicks would be able to get Webber (who can still play a little) to play the PF along with Frye at the center position. They would also get two young promising players in Warrick and Lowry (particularly Lowry, who is the Anti-Knick).

Memphis would get the point guard they need in Francis to make a run as well as Korver, who could come off the bench and be much more effective in that offense with Francis attacking the lane and Gasol's presence in the interior.

It's not a rumor just his trade idea. id only get rid of Webber if we trade AI. Right now if the Sixers decide to keep Allen, id like them to shop Dalembert instead for a veteran Center.

I think any trade that gets rid of webber would be great. No matter who the sixers get in return. I don't really think that anyone would be dumb enough to trade for him though.

Obviously you're not going to get better players back in return for Webber right now, so the only good deal is a deal that takes that money off the books sooner.

I like the deal. It really helps the team from a cap perspective.

The biggest problem is convincing the Knicks to take more salary. Trading Francis makes perfect sense, though. I wonder if Knicks fans would like the deal.

And this checks out with the NBA's cap rules.
