This trade is similar to the two separate MIN and NJ I have previously proposed. This is in light of the Nets putting feelers out there saying they would prefer Mike Miller in a trade. Also, Vince Carter has expressed their need for a good backup PG to take pressure off of Harris.

We would cut Baston or Swift. NJ only takes on the extra 9M that they were planning on taking on from Miller's second year anyway. This fulfills both of their biggest needs and gets rid of a bunch of minimal-impact players for them. Minnesota gets more expiring contracts than they could from just NJ and a second rounder. We get rid of Tinsley and solidify our front court depth, all while adding three more players to next year's roster for the same amount of money. We get four defensive-minded players. Boone, Najera and Hassel will help our defense tremendously.
