Now's the time to trade Curry to Charlotte

Curry + Biedrins for DJ Augustin + Diaw + BJ Mullens + 2012 1st Rd Pick (won't work in the trade machine just yet because Mullens can't be traded for a few more weeks).

Curry is the one player that has the ability to put NBA basketball on the map for Charlotte. He's also a hometown boy AND he's shown tremendous interest in playing there. Charlotte should be willing to "move mountains" to nab Curry -- it's a franchise-changing move for them. I honestly think we could also get another future pick out of them for this deal.

While getting rid of Curry doesn't seem ideal at face value, this move actually would be a huge win overall: it nets us a decent PG (Augustin) who won't command a huge contract this offseason when his contract expires, an expiring contract for Biedrins (Diaw), a young, cheap Center to replace Biedrins "void" (Mullens), and surefire top 5 draft pick this year. It will also definitely make sure we suck enough to keep our pick as well. We'll be in full rebuilding mode.

From there, we let Monta run the team (into the ground). Play him 40 minutes a night, get his numbers up, and move him in the offseason for the pieces we aren't able to grab in the draft or Free Agency (with our newly found extra $13M or so to spend). Perhaps this is when we can pull off the Monta for Noah trade with Chicago.

The time to trade Curry is now while he's healthy and before we win our way out of keeping our 1st round pick. I think we can all finally agree (even J-RIDAH is finally capitulating) that this team isn't going anywhere as constructed, so now is the time to deconstruct it. This moves helps us do that, and fast.

Quick recap:

Curry for: the ability to dump Biedrins contract, get ~$13M in expirings, get a cheap young Center, and get TWO top 7 draft picks in the 2012 draft.....
