We take a talent hit on this trade, but free up some money to resign Granger, plus have some flexibility to deal at the deadline. We get a true 2 guard in Howard to pair with Danny and get out of the final year of O'neals deal, saving us 23 million. We also get Bass who has some promise. This would give us about 15-20 million in cap room after next year. Replacing Dun with Howard also helps our perimeter defense a little. Plus an extra #1 to offer in a trade or a big man.
Dallas gains a post presence to team up with Dirk, and Dunleavy to help Terry handle the ball. Plus Cuban has the deep pockets to take a chance on O'neal without batting an eye.
Cleveland wanted Kidd at the deadline but didn't have the pieces to satisfy NJ, but we on the other hand would welcome the extra first rounder along with the 20 million in relief. And Kidd wouldn't be happy here anyways.
Our roster after this trade going into the draft
Snow (7 Million Expiring)
Daniels (7 Million Expiring)
Szczerbiak (13 Million Expiring)
Foster (6.5 Million Expiring)
We would be a little light on bigs, but we would have 3 picks in the first 43 to address that. Then hopefully we can find someone interested in Jamal.
