    I like it a lot for each team less the Suns.
    They have drafted bigs for years now and they need to see playing time soon. Leur (PF) at 10 per for 3 yrs. doesn't help. Len's return to the Suns is a low first and clogged front court. Maybe just a little more sweetener for the Suns, please.

    Now that we have Tucker and Moute, we can include Ariza in a package for Melo with minimal impact in our rotation. Tucker gives us pretty much everything that Ariza does (good defense across multiple positions, decent 3-pt shot when free) plus he is more athletic and better on the break. Moute is an excellent cover at the SF and PF spots.

    HOU in: Anthony (2y/$26m) and Lee (3y/$12m)
    HOU out: Anderson (3y/$20m), Ariza (1y/$7m), 1st round pick (to NYC)
    Why HOU does it: Upgrade the PF spot with a legitimate star. Ariza is replaced in the lineup by Tucker. Lee provides additional 3&D (40% shooter) from the bench. Get rid off Anderson contract

    NYC in: Harkless (3y/$10m), Leonard (3y/$10m), Frye (1y/$7m), Vonleh (1y/3m), Houston NGs/scrubs (TQ, SL, CO, IT), Cleveland 1st round, Houston 1st round
    NYC out: Anthony (2y/$26m) and C. Lee (3y/$12m)
    Why NYC does it: In essence, they turn $38m of long-term contracts (Melo, Lee) into $20m of long-term contracts (Leonard, Harkless), $11m of expirings (Vonleh, Frye), 2 young cheap talents (Onuaku, Taylor) and two 1st round picks. Next off-season they have an extra $18m in cap space plus 2 picks to improve their squad. Harkless is a decent starter for their team. Taylor, Onuaku may develop into useful pieces. Solid trade financially and gives them some hope for the future.

    POR in: Anderson (3y/$20m), Jefferson (2y/$2.5m)
    POR out: Harkless (3y/$10m), Leonard (3y/$10m), Vonleh (1y/3m)
    Why POR does it: The turn $20m of unproductive long-term contracts (Leonard, Harkless) into $20m of relatively productive long-term contract (Anderson). They improve their PF spot and remove the logjam at SF. Aminu starts next to Anderson with Turner and Crabbe as wing back-ups. They can cut RJ or keep him for veteran leadership. The get significantly better at zero cost from a difficult financial position where improving the team is tough.

    CLE in: Ariza (1y/$7m), Napier (1y/2m)
    CLE out: Frye (1y/$7m), Jefferson (2y/$2.5m), 1st round pick (to NYC)
    Why CLE does it: Ariza is a great upgrade in their rotation and a player they have coveted for some time. Lebron gets an additional play-maker in his own Heat pick, Napier. Not only they get much better on the court, but they also save some money in 2018.

    Houston team after trade:
    Paul/Harden/Tucker/Anthony/Capela
    Gordon/Lee/Moute/Nene/Black

    Who says no?

    Phoenix Incoming: Ryno, Ariza, Onuaku, 2nd
    Phoenix Outgoing: Chandler, Knight

    Houston Incoming: Carmelo
    Houston Outgoing: Ryno, Ariza, Onuaku 2nd

    New York Incoming: Knight, Chandler
    New York Outgoing: Carmelo

    Houston would probably do it. New York doesn't come out too strapped with this, plus Tyson can let Porzingis play PF short term. Phoenix take on Ryno, which is offset a little by unloading Knight, and Ariza is a pretty good asset for Phoenix by providing veteran experience as well as being a trade chip at the trade deadline.

    This Melody situation is getting annoying why not focus on getting Mark Gasil

    Rockets would get cut out so fast Morey's head would spin.

    Not thinking big enough, Anderson, NGs, rights to Llull and future 1st round picks for LEBRON!

    Sign Melo after he's bought out because he won't waive that trade kicker after Rockets trade for Lebron.
