I thought of these Trades and I checked to see if they would work on ESPN NBA Trade Machine and they all work. These are trades the Jazz might consider if they wanted to go over the Salary Cap. And as you will see I love Trade Exceptions. Here we go.
Trade Matt Harprings Trade Exception to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Delonte West.
I like this trade because it give the Jazz a nice 2 Guard to work with Deron. It moves CJ to the SF with AK. And maybe Bell could come off the bench. West has good ball handling skills, shoots the ball great from Mid-Range and from downtown and is a good Defender. The thing I most like about West is that he is a Raja Bell who can create his own shot. Cavs have been trying to get rid off him. The knock on him is that he has bad off the court issues and I don’t know is Sloan wants that. West has 1 year left on his contract.
Trade Matt Harprings Trade Exception and Andrei Kirilenko to Piston for Tayshaun Prince, Ben Gordon and Chris Wilcox.
This is a good trade for alot of reasons. One the Jazz get rid of there huge contract in Andrei. They get another SF. A starting SG and a good off the bench 4. Pistons have wanted to get rid of Prince and I have heard that they are listening to teams that want Gordon. Wilcox is a veteran expiring contract. It gets CJ to the SF and Bell would again come off the bench. Both Prince and Wilcox have one year left on there contract. Gordon has 3 years. The down side of this trade is that I’m not sure that the Pistons want to get rid of Gordon…yet.
Trade CJ Miles and Ronnie Price to the Mavericks for Caron Butler and JJ Barea.
This puts the Jazz in a good situation. They have AK come of the bench and have Butler start. Barea would back up Deron. Dallas wants to get rid of Barea because they already have a good backup PG in Rodrigue Beabouis.(I think thats how you spell it.) I love Butler he has a good shot and he is pretty clutch. But downside is that Dallas may not want to trade him. Everyone in this trade has 1 year left on their contracts.
Trade Matt Harprings Trade Exception to Hornets for James Posey.
Last Trade Exception I swear! This helps both teams alot. Jazz get a SF and the Hornets get a Trade Exception they could use on somebody to help keep Chris Paul. James Posey is a veteran wing who helped the Heat and Celtics win Championships. He is a good shooter and an average defender. New Orleans wants to get rid of his contract.
Trade CJ Miles to Thunder for Deaquan Cook
Thunder did want Miles a few years ago and this is a opportunity to get him. Bell starts with Andrei at the 3 with Hayward backing him up and Cook backing up Bell.
THE BIG TRADE LETS GO OUT WITH A BANG!!!
Trade Ronnie Price, Andrei Kirilenko and Memo Okur to Blazers for Greg Oden, Marcus Camby, Rudy Fernandez, Jeyrrd Bayless and Nicholas Batum.
I LOVE THIS TRADE! The Jazz get rid of Okur and Kirilenko’s contracts. They get 2 Centers with Oden and Marcus Camby. Oden (when healthy) is very good, he is a great low post offensive and defensive player. Camby is also a great defensive player. Rudy would start in front of Bell. Bayless would be D-Wills backup and Batum would be behind Miles and Hayward at the 3. The Blazers want to get rid of Rudy and Oden. They say Bayless is too inconsistent. Batum is just a player I had to throw in. The hardest to get rid of is Camby. Kirilenko could start for them Okur would start (when healthy) but in the meantime they would play Pryzbila. Price would back up Miller. Everyone except for Camby and Okur has 1 year left of their contracts.
So what do you guys think? Whats your favorite?Least favorite?Who should they trade? Who should they keep?
