Sometimes you have to make a bold move to make your team better even if you have to pay a bit more for it.

My trade proposal is this. We trade Jason Richardson to Utah along with Pavlovic for Andrei Kirilenko and Either Eric Maynor or Kostas Koufos.

Why Phoenix should do it.

A) We get a super athletic wingman who in our system can play the 4. He can guard anyone from Lebron and Bryant to Garnett and Nowitzki succesfully. He is a block shooter and can run with anyone. 

B) Eric Maynor seems to be a poised player that could blossom behind Nash and Kostas Koufos is a solid Center that will get better in his second year(He's looking real good with the Greek National team this Month). Both help in the rotation. And they are young!!

C) Barbosa gets to start. Maybe the most important reason to do this trade. 

Why Utah does it.

A) They get rid of Kirilenko's pretty big contract and with Pavlovic they get to save some more money.

B) Jason Richardson will be a huge improvement at the Sg Position and although everyone will say that he is not a Jerry Sloan Type of player,i believe Coach Sloan can implement him well in his old reliable system.

Why they don't do it.

Although Utah is need of financial relief they may like Kirilenko too much do this type of trade that doesn't give them back a larger expiring contract. Also They are pretty high on their Young guys esspecially Maynor who they believe was a steal that late in the Draft. Let's not forget the JRich is not a Sloan type player...

For the Suns it's also a money thing. The Front office will basically see this as getting ride of one big contract for an even bigger one. Basically adding 3 millions + 3 millions in tax.

Basically the Suns get an intangibles guy that does a lot of the dirty work and can really play DEFENSE.

Looking forward to your ideas guys. If my trade needs some tweaking it would great to hear about it.

P.S I Believe that Utah is getting a bit more in salary cap relief with this deal so maybe we should try and get their first round draft pick for next year as well : ).
