It's obvious that we lack a true post presence to be a constant contender in the west. Detroit has a loaded front court and is lacking depth and star power in the back court. This is where we come in.
Phx trades: EB, Plumlee, LA's '15 1st, Was '14 1st
Phx receives: Det '14 1st and Greg Monroe
Det trades: Monroe, Jennings, '14 1st
Det receives: EB, Plumlee, JR Smith, Felton, LA's '15 1st and Was '14 1st
NY trades: JR Smith and Raymond Felton
NY Receives: Jennings
We also offer Stephenson around 10-12 mill a year. Draft Aaron Gordon with the Detroit pick and Staukas with our pick. Ask Frye to opt out or trade him to Cha or Hou for cap space.
That team has everything it needs to compete and go deep in the playoffs.
Detroit is catapulted to a top 4 slot in the East. NY get's an upgrade at PG they desperately need and Shump and Hardaway get to takeover the SG positions without having to worry aboyt JR who will also get a new start in a team in desperate need of scoring from the wing. Thoughts?
