A new Trade Idea that has me wondering
Does this trade make both teams instantly better?
Pacers trade – Granger, Price, Jones # 42
Denver trades – Felton, Gallinari, Harrington #22
Denver would love to pair up Ty Lawson, Aaron Afflalo, and Nene with Danny Granger. that would be a pretty good defensive team. They also are not giving to much talent up to get a legit scorer and above average defender and rebounder. They also get rid of Al Harringtons 6 mil a year contract.
Pacers get some great depth out of the deal. Gallinari can score and you take a hit on his defense, but you do not need 5 good defenders out on the floor at one time. You would put a line-up of this of the floor.
You can use felton at the two and one and stephanson at the two and one. Harrington is a offensive threat that can give you 10 points and 5-6 rebounds a game in 20 minutues. But here is what I would be excited about. Revisit talks with memphis about rush and the 15 for OJ Mayo. Then at 22 take Tobias Harris. He can play 3 or 4 and will only be 19 when the season starts.
Now your line up is more althletic and defensive, with a lot of offensive in your second unit.
With Felton, Gallinari, Harris, Stephanson, Harrington, Posey coming off the bench. You will need to sign a center, but that is a really deep team. Best part of this trade is that you will have Posey at 7 mil, Felton at 7 mil coming off the books next year. Thats 14 million additional cap space for us to add to our core. I still fill we could make the playoffs as a 7 or 8 seed and see another 15-17 pick next year and be able to spend some money and make some plays for some really good teams for the future.
