Default Marion + #2 for Brand + #7 being discussed.

Miami is reportedly considering sending the No. 2 pick and Shawn Marion to the Los Angeles Clippers for No. 7 and Elton Brand.

Per Realgm.

I don't see how this works, did Brand fail to opt out?

If so its good for both sides.

Puts Miami in the playoffs, maybe beyond. Gives the clippers the hard shake of the Etchasketch they so desperately need if they ever want to matter. I like it.

Brand isn't the kind of guy you build around; Brand is the kind of guy you pair with D Wade.

Good trade for Miami. Brand and Wade would be a beast combination. Plus they could still get a good player at 7.

Good trade for the Clippers too. Shawn Marion is versatile offense and defense. At two they have the chance to land a point in either Mayo or Maybe Rose or replace brand with Michael Beasley.

Out of all the trades Ive been hearing, this one sounds pretty good.

Yes they are, but I doubt Brand and Wade could stay healthy over the course of the year.

Stupid comment. Why won't Elton stay healthy? Because he's had one major injury in his career? Only thing else that he's had was a hairline fracture way back when we played our first two regular season games against the Sonics in Japan. Plus, dude came back, played 8 great games, considering he was rusty, and didn't seem to miss a bea.t

I dont think we could label Wade as injury prone just yet. I think however, this season will say alot about that. I think both players can stay healthy.

whats the chances Bayless lands at 7?

Well if this trade were true, then it would be for the 4th pick now after the trade the Clipps just made. I don't so it as likely now that they have the 4th pick, but lets say it does happen. Then yes, Bayless will still be there at 4.

That's a good trade for the Heat. Wade and Brand is a good combo, there both unselfish and Brand is a beat down low. They can still get a good player at 7 too, if there lucky they can get Bayless.

With how poorly Miami played last year, they are more than just one player away from being a playoff team again. Brand would help out, but they need alot of help. If you don't have a PG to get the ball up court and set Brand/Wade up, then their presence won't be as valuable.

Wade/Brand will be enough to get them to the playoffs in the East. And if they do end up getting #4 if both deals go down, they can get a nice PG in Bayless, or Westbrook if they want. Bayless-Wade-??-Brand-Blount? will get the 8th seed at least.

He's suffered season altering injuries 3 straight year. How is that not injury prone?
