    Detroit is reported to be interested in moving Boby Sura. NY wants to move Othella and is looking for a shooter. Rockets need cap space to retool the roster with the cap exception acquired from the Rice trade, without giving a much. How about this:

    Houston trades:
    PF Maurice Taylor (10.9 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 1.1 apg in 26.3 minutes)
    C John Amaechi (0 ppg, 0 rpg, 0 apg in 0 minutes)
    SG Eric Piatkowski (6.2 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 0.8 apg in 19.2 minutes)

    Houston receives:
    SG Bob Sura (2.9 ppg, 1.4 rpg, 1.6 apg in 12.5 minutes)
    C Elden Campbell (6.9 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 0.7 apg in 16.8 minutes)
    PF Othella Harrington (4.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 0.2 apg in 12.3 minutes)
    Change in team outlook: -3.1 ppg, +1.4 rpg, and +0.6 apg.

    Detroit trades:
    SG Bob Sura (2.9 ppg, 1.4 rpg, 1.6 apg in 12.5 minutes)
    C Elden Campbell (6.9 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 0.7 apg in 16.8 minutes)

    Detroit receives:
    PF Maurice Taylor (10.9 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 1.1 apg in 19 games)
    C John Amaechi (0 ppg, 0 rpg, 0 apg in 0 minutes)

    Change in team outlook: +1.1 ppg, -0.4 rpg, and -1.2 apg.

    New York trades:
    PF Othella Harrington (4.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 0.2 apg in 12.3 minutes)

    New York receives:
    SG Eric Piatkowski (6.2 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 0.8 apg in 13 games)
    Change in team outlook: +2.0 ppg, -1.0 rpg, and +0.6 apg.

    TRADE ACCEPTED

    This meets everone's requirements without a major shakeup in the line up in the mid-season. Thoughts:

    No matter what type of trade comes up, you have to throw in Moochie.

    Only thing is, we actually need a major shakeup mid-season.

    Baron is the type of player that looks to penetrate everytime and dish.

    SF should emulate Baron. But he hasn't shown it for 5 years.

    he used to... but the guy averages over 9 three-point attempts per game this season. This is just crazy.
