Random trade idea

Since we have heard that Cleveland has had interest in Troy Murphy. Yet all rumors seem to suggest that Larry Bird is holding out for more than Cleveland is willing to give. May I suggest a 3rd team to help broker the deal.


The 3 way trade will involve the Knicks,Cavs and Pacers.

Pacers send Murphy to Cleveland for the expiring contract of Ilgauskas.Pacers then flip the expiring deal of Ilgauskas to the Knicks for Jared Jeffries, Marcus Landry and Jordan Hill.

 

The reasoning that this is doable is as follows.

1. Cleveland is looking to add Murphy and he has been connected to big Z in almost every rumor.

2. The Knicks are looking to clear cap space for this summers free agent market.

3. Pacers pick up an asset in Hill in exchange for taking Jared Jeffries off of the Knicks cap.

 

Jeffries will have value next year as an expiring deal. Not to mention the fact that he is likely a rotation player on this Pacers team. Only concern is that Larry Bird gives him a 7 year contract extension upon arrival.
