So I was screwing around with the ESPN NBA Trade Machine and i came up with what i thought was a pretty good deal. Obviously, the money works out cuz that's basically all the trade machine does but i also threw in draft picks which you cant do on the machine so tell me what you think....


sg Ray Allen

pf Brandon Bass

c Jermaine Oneal

Boston Celtics 1st Rd Pick

LA Clippers 1st Rd Pick (Top 10 Protected)

This deal really works out for both sides. The Jazz aren't really getting it done right now and probably want to dump salary. JO and Ray wouldnt be on the Jazz past this year, so the Jazz would have their $16 mill for this offseason (not to mention the $14mill from Big Al) and it allows Derrick Favors to get into the starting lineup, who has showed a lot of promise as of late. Also, Brandon Bass takes Favors' old role. So, they dont lose TOO much this year and are in better shape to rebuild a mediocre team since Deron left.


pf Al Jefferson

sg Raja Bell

Utah Jazz 1st Rd Pick.

This deal really works out for both sides. We lose the 2 1st Rnd. picks but we acquire a pick that will probably be better than either of the 2 we had before. ALSO, we give the Celtics a chance to win it all THIS YEAR without jeopardizing the future. That would give us a starting lineup of pg-RRondo, sg-MPietrus, sf-PPierce, pf-AJefferson, c-KGarnett. This starting lineup would be MUCH better. KG has surprisingy been dominant at Center and this brings in a pure scoring power forward. Also, you still have a pretty good bench in Wilcox (current Bass mins), Bell (current pietrus mins), Dooling(more mins), Bradley (more mins), Tre-J (JaJuan/Current Wilcox mins), Moore, Pavlovic, Daniels & Stiemsma. PLUS, we still have Kgs ridiculous salary coming off the books at the end of the yr so we can still give out a max contract to someone and now it's a little more inticing for that FA (Dwight's a pipe dream, i know, but you know thats who i want). Next year you build around Rondo, Pierce, Big Al, Max Contract Guy and Jeff Green (who comes back for one year at a cheap salary because of how-well we handled his situation and to re-establish himself).

tell me what you think......
