Trade with Orlando.....

4

But not for Dwight. I say we trade Ellis/Lee/trade exception for Hedo/Orton/Anderson/Richardson/Duhon/pick. The pick and TE are not necessary though. Why would Orlando do this? Dwight is VERY, VERY high on Ellis, and getting him will increase the likelihood of Dwight re-signing. Plus David Lee is a great complement to him as well (who isn't). The major downside though is their cap will be bogged down big time. But, Ellis and Arenas (if he isn't amnestied) expire at the same time--3 years--so they can blow it up around then. Kills their depth, but they can work around that. Trading for Lee's contract isn't ideal, but if it means keeping Howard, its worth it imo. For GSW, it would change the dynamic of the team. This is largely based on Chandler signing with us, but we most of all get depth. Except Orton, all have shown they can play in the NBA. We also get some cap relief in the short term--$2.7mm this year up to 3.8mm in '13-14. Huge savings >$10mm in '15-16 (albatross part of Lee contract). We might take a small step back this season, but it would be worth it if we can keep our pick. If we sign Chandler, we would have pretty good pieces headlined by Curry to make a play for Paul. The relationship between Chandler and Paul AS WELL AS Mike Malone and Paul can be very helpful to get him to sign an extension with us. Yes, we won't be the favorites to land him, but we at least increase our likelihood...
