Trade idea that came to me during Memphis game

I became intrigued by the Nash/Dragic lineup that Gentry played during the 4th quarter since JRich was ice cold. Personally, I've always though Dragic had a lot of a Ginobili 2-guard in him and I think he could really thrive in that role, especially playing alongside Nash. So my idea was... what if the Suns traded JRich and Earl Clark to Cleveland for Mo Williams and Anderson Varejao. It works salary-wise and those two are apparently on the trading block with Cleveland looking to rebuild. The trade give Cleveland an expiring contract and a young player with potential to grow (the same young player Asst. Cleveland GM David Griffin drafted in Phoenix). Perhaps a protected 1st round pick would need to be included by Phoenix. The Suns benefit by getting a terrific big man defender/rebounder in Varejao who would start alongside Frye in the front court. Lopez comes off the bench as a Varejao in training,  Dragic slides into JRich's starting role. A stretch at this point, but he's good enough to play the minutes and develop there. Mo Williams could be the 3rd guard off the Suns bench a la Jason Terry in Dallas. This would be our depth chart:

PG Nash  MoWilliams

SG Dragic Dudley Childress

SF Hill Turkoglu

PF Frye Warrick Lawal

C Varejao  Lopez Barrron

Seems like a much better defensive unit to me having a big active shaggy-haired center in the middle at all times. Thoughts?
