    Lightbulb Pacers + Kings + Nuggets + Nets BLOCKBUSTER

    Pacers trade: Al Jefferson, Lavoy Allen, 2017 and 2019 unprotected 1sts, 2017 2nd, and Georges Niang.
    Kings trade: Demarcus Cousins, Rudy Gay and 2018 unprotected 1st.
    Nets trade: Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin


    Nets acquire: Pacers 2017 1st, Kings 2018 1st, Pacers 2019 1st, Rudy Gay
    Kings acquire: Georges Niang, Brook Lopez, Jeremy Lin
    Pacers acquire: Demarcus Cousins
    Nuggets acquire: Lavoy Allen, Pacers 2017 2nd, and Al Jefferson



    The reason this deal is so large is because it's the only way Indiana could get an elite talent like Cousins without gutting the team. We give up a lot, next Summers 1st and 2nd round picks. Plus a 1st in 2019 as per NBA rules you can't trade back2back picks. Denver gets our 2nd rounder next Summer as compensation for helping us out. Jefferson and Lavoy add some size to a team that has a lot of guards.

    The Nets are out of the draft until 2019 I believe. Our picks plus Sacramento's 2018 1st gets them back into the game quickly. They get Rudy Gay who will most likely opt out and the Nets will have a pick next Summer, in 2018, and two in 2019. Not to mention a ton of free agency cash to spend. THE PERFECT rebuild situation.

    In return Sacramento gets a center who offensively is on par with Cousins and also a point guard who can play fast and shoot. Which means no more Ricky Rubio rumors and no more washed up Ty Lawson. Niang is another young piece they can develop. We get Cousins and can slide Myles to the 4 (for those of you who want that). But Cousins is an elite piece and that will show Paul we mean business.

    This is illegal trade in its current form. Every team participating have to both give and receive. Nuggets are not giving up anything here. That is the 1st problem.

    2nd - This is also an ABSOLUTELY horrible trade for Kings. Not only are they losing Cousins for much less than equal value in Robin Lopez & Jeremy Lin, but they are even giving up a 1st-rounder to do so???? And of course no compensation whatsoever for Rudy Gay. There would be many better deals available for Cousins.

    One single 2nd-round pick is not enough to entice Denver to take two albatrosses of contract (AlJeff + Lavoy). Especially as they would both join their already overcrowded frontcourt. There is no minutes or need for either player there. Totally senseless for them to participate in this even while they would have two easy-to-waive guys in Mike Miller & Jarnell Stokes.

    Edit : I don't get where you have gotten the idea that Denver is guard-heavy. They basically have 3 guards in Mudiay, Jamal Murray, Gary Harris and swingman Barton. They also have the corpse of Jameer Nelson. Otoh, they have overcrowded frontcourt and a real problem in their hands of trying to fit Jusuf Nurkic & Nikola Jokic in same rotation while also finding playing time for Faried, Hernangomez, Darrell Arthur and two somewhat-slowish small forwards who would probably be better served as small-ball 4s nowadays (Gallo & Wilson Chandler). That is 7! players who should play in frontcourt and almost no guards/wings. Yes, Gallo & Chandler play small forward, but that's out of necessity - not 'cause it's their best position. Why, why, why would they add two more bigs who would basically be 8th & 9th in pecking order (not maybe 8th and 9th best as AlJeff may be better player right now than Juan Hernangomez, but he (AlJeff) is also the one with no potential for future - unlike 21-year-old Hernangomez)??? Lavoy would have NO NO NO NO NO NO NO use for Denver. EVER!

    So Sacto would shout "NO!!!!!!!"
    Denver would look at you stupefied and ask "Why????"
    Nets would be ecstatic and Indiana would be getting Cousins which probably was the only reason for this completely idiotic exercise....
