    Default 3 team trade: Terrence Williams to the Rockets

    Terrence Williams likely has played his last game with the Nets.

    Posted by Al Iannazzone on 12/14 at 06:03 PM

    Multiple league sources said the Nets are close to sending the backup guard to the Rockets in three-team trade that also includes the Lakers. This move could impact the Netsí pursuit of Carmelo Anthony.

    The Nets will get a first-round pick from the Rockets and shooting guard Sasha Vujacic from the Lakers, who will receive Joe Smith from New Jersey. More could be involved. Since Smith was signed in the offseason and canít be traded until Dec. 15, the deal canít be completed or announced until today.

    Williams was inactive for Tuesdayís game against the Sixers. Coach Avery Johnson said Williams was healthy, but was told not to come to the game. The Nets didnít want to risk him getting hurt.

    Nets general manager Billy King had no comment.

    The assets the Nets are acquiring could strengthen their position in the Anthony chase.

    The Nuggets like Derrick Favors and the two first-round picks the Nets already have offered but want more for Anthony. The Nets could add another pick now or try to include other teams and more players to satisfy Denver.

    Wow. From what looked like a hot commodity during the summer, he goes from that to punished-to-the-D-league to now traded. Wow.

    Doesn't the Rockets have two 1st round picks? their own and the Knicks?

    Wouldn't it be ironic if Carmelo is traded to the Nets and one of the 1st round pick that the Nuggets get is the 1st round pick that the Knicks send to the Rockets?

    Good for the Rockets. Although they are loaded with wing players.

    The Nets have no clue what they're doing.

    Hey New Jersey, Carmelo DOES NOT want to come there. Get the hint and move on already.

    The trade as reported doesn't work - Nets are taking back too much salary. They'll have to send another player out, maybe Quinton Ross.

    Houston has a trade exception to absorb Williams' contract, but they're out of roster spots. They'll have to cut someone (Jermaine Taylor?)

    For the Lakers, it's basically a luxury tax move. Not that Sasha played much for them anyway.

    Nets managed to get 2 first rounders for T Will, albeit one is the very low Lakers pick and the other pick not being due until 2012. Still, it's not a bad return for a player that they've exiled.

    Agreed, but i'd say getting what might be a lottery pick for a malcontent is a solid deal.

    Looks like the Rockets really like the young wings that are on the Nets roster. First Courtney Lee, now Terrence Williams. New Jersey must be confident they can get Melo that extension.

    The Nets definitely aren't having a great season, but Lopez and Harris still being around will help them out if they don't have to be included

    Well Nets are 1.4 mil under cap, so unless there are trade kickers involved it should work.

    If that's not a red flag, I don't know what is.

    Saw on Twitter that the pick is lottery protected.

    I actually think this might be more about purging Terrence Williams from their roster while he still has some value.

    I love this trade for the Rockets: T-Will to a good team for a late 1st is good value indeed. What an interesting mix of veterans and youth they have! I hope Yao can produce in the 2nd half of the season: I'd love to see them knock of the Lakers and get to the Finals.

    T.Will has more value than those picks imo. I am not a fan of this deal for NJ. I think they've been terrible ever since Billy King has stepped in.

    Anyway we can toss James Posey into this deal? I'll take back anyone who doesn't have a bad contract, and can't shoot the 3.

    Posey is good for this team, he's just being used too much.

    And that will continue to happen as long as he is on the team. It's not like he's tearing it up and earning those minutes.

    Yes, I think he should be on the floor in spurts, but I would much rather him and Hansbrough switch position with Tyler being the backup and Posey getting a couple minutes every few weeks.

    I think the Rockets will love Terrence Williams, as he can do a little bit of everything. The Rockets have some solid wings in Martin, Battier, Lee, Budinger, and now Williams.

    Curious who becomes odd man out though?

    The problem is the judicious use of the 3, or lack thereof. I don't mind someone with 3 point shooting ability. I just don't want them jacking them up at the most disadvantageous times.

    I looked at the details more on this trade:

    Nets get - Vujacic + Lakers 1st round pick + Rockets 1st round pick + 2nd round pick ( I think )
    Rockets get - TWill
    Lakers get - Joe Smith

    The Nets get TWO 1st round picks here....add in that they will get a 1 year rental of Maria Sharpova attending games...and you can see who comes out ahead in that deal.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I'll give anybody 2:1 odds that Sharapova and Vujacic are divorced by June.

    Call me nuts, but don't be surprised if Phil squeezes some production out of Smith. He could easily be much more valuable come playoff time than Sasha'd ever be.

    Any chance we can go after Courtney Lee. The reason why the Nets got rid of Lee was because of TWill. I just don't see where Lee fits in the rotation with the Rockets now. I don't know who would we give up but just a thought.

    Why the Lakers need another big that can't shoot the three?

    At the very least, he'll be good for six fouls come playoff time.
