Hello utes. My apologies for the slow start to the season. As a Hornets fan I can really commiserate.
As with many fans of teams with slow starts, I am prone to unrealistic trade proposals.
That being said, trade ideas are always fun, so let's give it a whirl.
Trade D West and Posey plus cash for Kevin Martin and Freddie Garcia
Trade Peja and 2 top 10 protects picks for Andre Kirilenko
We get the best 2 that the New Orleans Hornets have ever had.
For Sacto, getting D West allows them to play Jason Thompson at his natural center position. And Dwest gets anthoer mobile big to cover for him on pick and roll d. Evans is a 2. His last few games with Sacremento have highlighted this.
As for Utah, this move allows them to move Korver at the trade deadline for just cash. He makes less than 6 mill, so if sold to a team with cap room halfway through the year, Utah can just pay a team 3 million to take him off of their hands for cap space. New Orleans would be willing to throw in Posey probably, provided that you would want him. He could give the spark and toughness that Harpring used to give you and he is a better shooter. In that scenario, the Kings would take Harpring's contract, so you still would save 3 mill in the deal. Utah probably wouldn't do this because posey has some years on his contract, and he is recovering from surgery. So what do you guys think? Am I completely crazy?
