    Default HOU

    IND gets:

    Chuck Hayes
    Courtney Lee

    HOU gets:

    IND 2011 second rounder

    Both of these players could be brought in under our TPE from the Troy Murphy deal. Houston is roughly 3.5M over the cap. This would get them within 120K of the luxury tax. They could buy out a player to get under the cap so this deal would basically put about 7-8M dollars into their pockets with the savings on LT and the distribution of BRI.

    We would obviously need to cut two players, which would probably be Solo and TJ. It doesn't seem like Houston is going to make the playoffs, so I highly doubt they would want to pay the LT.

    We could make a follow up deal with them to get them the whole way under the LT by sending them Dahntay Jones and two first rounders for Jordan Hill and Ish Smith. We would obviously cut Ish Smith immediately, but we bring in the PF/C that would solidify our front court rotation for years to come.

    Overall movement would look like;

    Chuck Hayes
    Courtney Lee
    Jordan Hill

    for

    Dahntay Jones
    2011 First Rounder
    2011 Second Rounder
    2013 First Rounder
    (Basically $7-8M cash)

    Our team look like this going forward:

    PG - Collison/Price
    SG - Rush/Lee/Stephenson
    SF - Granger/George
    PF - Hill/ Hansborough
    C - Hibbert/McRoberts

    Chuck Hayes alone is worth a 2nd possible more. Then add Lee I think HOU declines

    I definitely agree with you that their value is more than just a second rounder, but it is the implications of being in LT territory and it becomes more like $7-8M and a high to mid second rounder for an expiring contract and a young player who is their backup SG (and Martin is signed for several more years).

    They aren't giving up much for a significant amount of money and a draft pick that they could probably replace one of the two fairly easy.
