One Man's Idea: Trade For Marion

New, comments

Section F Sports came up with a trade proposal to consider and wrote a long, thought out post about it. Here's the idea:

Phoenix Gives Up: Shawn Marion, Marcus Banks, and the #29 pick

Boston Gives Up: the #5 pick, Theo Ratliff's expiring $12 million contract (in 2008), Delonte West, Kendrick Perkins, and their first round pick in 2008

Here is part of his explanation for Phoenix:

Maybe Phoenix can get better player for Marion, but it is hard to see them gaining more depth, youth, and financial flexibility. The #5 pick could net them a very exciting young big man, as mentioned above. I happen to believe that Wright and Horford are going to be sweet NBA players and remember, those guys (or Yi or Noah or whoever) presented a very exciting "best case scenario" about 12 hours ago for Phoenix. The Suns also get their precious luxury tax relief 12 months from now.

I know we've seen this movie in regards to Banks, but here's his thoughts on that:

As for Boston, they would have to bring Marcus Banks back, but that is required to make the deals work. But the Celtics would gain a star in Marion that would help them win right now and allow them to roll out a pretty nice starting lineup of Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, Ryan Gomes, Shawn Marion, and Al Jefferson.
