Calderon and Bardnani are probably the worst defenders at their respective positions.
Also, I wouldnt touch neither of their contacts.
Stay away from this trade.
I agree that there defense is awful and could be among the worst at there positions, but DC is not getting it done either, West is ok but not great, but hopefully Mayo and PG can provide an overall upgrade to the D to make up for some of that and Hill taking a good portion of the PG minutes will help out tremendously. I think Bargnani contract is verry reasonable he makes what a great one dimentional player should. Claderon is way over payed but his contract is up at the end of next season. We either look at resigning him in the 6-8 mil a year range or find someone else. We might get lucky with Lance or by some miracle Marshall falls to us in the draft next year.

Toronto might be interested as a starting point for a revamped deal but Memphis wouldn't IMO.
Zach Randolph is a few games from returning and Mo Speights' strong play since we set him off has gotten him out of their doghouse so they would have no need for Tyler right now unless someone took Speights. I do think they would like to avoid possible attitude issues with Speights once he gets a massive loss of PT behind Z-Bo and would have interest in Tyler if he was out of the picture.
If they move Mayo they will need a 3 point shooter back in return and I don't see them having interest in D Jones again since his contract next year doesn't fit into their tight finances. For us to get OJ we need a 3rd team to help out unless we gave them George Hill.
