    Rockets
    IN: Mario Chalmers & Chris Andersen
    OUT: T. Jones, Papa, Prigioni, Dorsey and perhaps 2nd round pick(s)
    Why? We need a PG and Chalmers is actually a veteran (29 years old), with championship experience. Andersen is also a veteran and an extra big body to protect the rim.

    Heat
    IN: T. Jones, Papa, Prigioni, Dorsey and perhaps 2nd round pick(s)
    OUT: Mario Chalmers & Chris Andersen
    Why? http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/238666/Heat-Trying-To-Salary-Dump-Chris-Andersen-Mario-Chalmers. T. Jones and Papa are good young players with 'upside'. Prigioni and Dorsey are ready to get waived by them. 2nd rounders might seal the deal ...

    Rockets line-up:
    PG: Chalmers/Beverly
    SG: Harden/Brew/Nick Johnson
    SF: Ariza/Dekker
    PF: DMO/Andersen/Harrell
    C: D12/Capela

    Josh Smith and Jason Terry could be added when re-signed ...

    The price is too high,

    I think

    Mario Chalmers + Chris Andersen+ Shabazz Napier <-> Kostas Papanikolaou + Pablo Prigioni + Joey Dorsey

    will be ok

    Papanikolaou is non-guaranteed and Prigioni is 440K guaranteed
    Heat could cut 9m salary in the trade, and we get backup PG/C and potential point guards

    Miami wants to salary dumb to get out of the lux tax. You dont have to throw real assets. The players are servicable anough tho that they wont require necessarilly a sweetener like napier so if you want him too gotta give up a minor asset like nick johnson.

    Kpap contract becomes guaranteed in octomber. After that he becomes negative value immediatelly. So he will get traded before that.

    Why should we do it now during offseason? There is always more talks during mid-season when players say that they won't resign with team - you can get more for less.

    his contract would be a huge trading piece before the deadline. besides he did ok for us last november then fell out of the rotation. but if smith comes back we'll have to do something cuz jones is also the a nice trading piece.

    What would it take to get Ty Lawson? What would we have to give up? Would we have to make it a 3 way? (Call Hinkie)

    We wouldn't HAVE to make it a 3 way but there's always the possibility. KPap, Jones, Dorsey, Prigs is nearly 9 million in Salary which is enough to bring in Lawson I believe. If not, Johnson too and then it's a done deal.

    What do you guys think of this trade.

    Hou IN: Smart / Zeller + TE of close to 9M
    Hou out: Papa + T Jones + Prig + Dorsey + Future 1st or 2nd which ever it needed

    Bos In: Papa + T Jones + Prig + Dorsey + Future 1st or 2nd
    Bos Out: Smart / Zeller + TE of 9M

    with this rockets can make room to cap and sign Smith

    Smart / Bev (wise versa)
    Harden / Brewer
    Ariza / Brewer / Dekker
    Dmo / Smith
    Howard / Zeller

    It might work.

    Out of all the serious trade proposals this guy actually gives a reason why the rockets and cavs should trade Ariza and Nick Johnson for Hayword expiring.

    He even quotes on the pic...

    "Trevor Ariza would fit like a glove in Cleveland, but the Rockets probably aren't going to give him up."

    Oh really? no **** idiot...

    LOL

    It's very hard to get the better of Angie in a deal. Getting Smart for Jones is going to be very tough. I expect Boston to retain Tyler Zeller too.
