    Lightbulb Pacers + Kings + Grizzlies





    Pacers send out: Monta Ellis, Rodney Stuckey, 2018 1st Rd pick.
    Grizzlies send out: Brandan Wright, Tony Allen, Vince Carter.
    Kings send out: Rudy Gay, Ben McLemore.


    Pacers receive: Rudy Gay, Ben McLemore.
    Grizzlies receive: Monta Ellis, Rodney Stuckey.
    Kings receive: Pacers 2018 1st, Brandan Wright, Tony Allen, Vince Carter.



    Reasons:

    Pacers solidify their guard core. Rudy starts at the 3, Paul slides to the 2. Mclemore backs up Paul. CJ Miles backs up Rudy. This also fits nicely for us salary wise. If Miles and Gay opt out next Summer that would gives us almost $20 mil in cap space with the cap going up. Mclemore gives us a young guard who can easily replace CJ Miles if he decides to leave for bigger money elsewhere. But with Stuckey and Ellis gone and Rudy and CJ possibly opting out we'd have more than enough money to attract Gordon Hayward and extend Teague. Whatever the future MAY hold the 2016-2017 Pacers would be LOADED with this trade, and a serious threat to win the East.

    Grizzlies had trouble scoring last season but by adding Stuckey and Ellis and swapping out Tony Allen, VC, and Wright they add more offense to a team that already includes Parsons, Gasol, and Conley. They also get younger and faster considering VC is like 37 now and Tony Allen is 34. Monta and Rodney are both under 31.

    Kings have enough scoring with Garrett Temple, Matt Barnes, Collison, Cousins, and Afflalo. But now they add some more versatility and veteran wisdom in Carter, Allen, and Wright. Not to mention they get a 1st out of the deal. But Allen and Carter are both expirings. While Wright is a solid defensive big being paid under $6 million for just 1 more season after this one. This makes Sacramento a more complete team. Surrounding Cousins with more veterans who know how to win, defend, and play smart basketball. Overall this Kings team won't be as flashy, quick, and offensively potent as previous incarnations. But they'll be tougher, smarter, better defensively, and wiser. Less prone to crumbling and in-fighting when things get tough during close games.
