What do you think guys? Let's help Stern, Demps, Devos, and Smith. It's an imperfect world but this deal sounds good to me if it's legal.
Minnesota 2012 1st unprotected
2012 Clippers 1st
3 million (from Boston)
2012 Orlando 1st
3 million (from Orlando)
Celtics get big and move up a little in good draft but lose some cap space next year and have to pay more luxury tax this year.
Orlando surrounds Howard with more talent for hopefully better playoff run, but loses draft pick and pays luxury tax.
Hornets lose any chance of winning 20 games this year, but in return get enormous cap relief, real-world financial relief, and an excellent opportunity to OUTTANK Bobcats, Nets, and Wizards for #1 overall pick.
