The W’s payroll is $63,455,598 as of 12/16/2009. They’re $5,755,598 over the cap, here’s the first trade.
5-years $9,000,000 To Cleveland 1-year $11,541,074
For 2010 1st Round Draft Pick
Cleveland would make this trade because they need a big man that can actually move. Biedrins would be a huge upgrade over Big Z and Shaq. He and Lebron on the pick and roll is a significant upgrade over Andersen Varejao. We’ll send out Mikki Moore as well to make the money work.
2-years $1,837,560 To Miami 1-year $2,887,165
4-years $8,937,931 1-$7,100,000
Miami gets a replacement PF for Haslem with real potential. Pat Riley loves hybrid types like Randolph and he usually has success with developing them. Corey’s contract does hinder the deal a bit but Miami isn’t giving up much as it is and they would still have plenty of cap room for the future even with this deal. If Maggette’s contract is still too hard to swallow then I’ll throw Brandan Wright in as well. Otherwise, rumors state that Miami would love to have Andris so that may be an option as well. In which case, I would have to take back Mario Chalmers and his expiring deal.

2-years $2,710,560 For 2-years $2,839,408
2010 2nd Round Draft Pick
Instead of taking back a 1st round pick the Magic would just take Vladimir back instead. They have a trade exception that would make it work.
