    Default Hollinger: IND/MEM/LAC/CLE

    By John Hollinger, ESPN
    http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/story...-let-make-deal

    O.J. Mayo and Ramon Sessions to Indiana in a 4-team deal (Proposed trade)
    Admittedly, this one is a little difficult, but put the pieces together and it all makes sense. Cleveland trades Sessions and Ryan Hollins and gets back a great guard prospect in Eric Bledsoe. Memphis trades O.J. Mayo and Marreese Speights, and gets back a real power forward in Tyler Hansbrough and a real backup guard in Randy Foye. (Side note: The trade machine blew up once I added Speights to this deal, so I left him out in the link. But he'd need to be in it to keep Memphis under the luxury tax. Speights can go by himself to Cleveland and not as part of the rest of the package since Cleveland is under the cap.)

    Indiana gets a guard who can actually pass in Sessions, a long-range shooter in Mayo, who they can keep as a restricted free agent, and a fourth big in Hollins, and deals out three bench players (Hansbrough, Dahntay Jones and Amundson). And the Clippers deal from their excess at the guard spots to fill in the roster, sending out Foye and Bledsoe and getting back a wing defender (Jones) and a frontcourt reserve (Amundson). If they really need another point guard I'm sure Indy could add A.J. Price to this swap, too.

    (Finally, a quick aside on the Clippers -- heck yes, that was the best dunk I've seen since Vince posterized Frederic Weis.)

    why would the Clippers do this

    I would definitely think about this deal because I really like Sessions. So many great bigs in the draft we can get another big there to backup West.

    DC, GH, Lance, PG, Price and DJ... unless Hill is out for 4+ weeks I don't see the point in adding 2 more guards in return for our only truly effective big man off the bench

    I'm in agreement. We'd need to find a way to get another big man or two.
    With the #3 pick in the 2015 draft, your Indiana Pacers!

    I'd do this in a second.

    I actually think Clippers would come ahead with the style they play. Lou would give good energy and I'm sure CP3 could feed him well. Jones would give them better defense and not lose any offense production and may actually gain.

    Grizz has to do this deal. How could they turn it down.

    Cleveland could use Speights in a big way.

    Pacers would have to do this, but another deal would have to be done before this one for a PF and Center cause I'm not liking Hollins at all.

    To make this trade more sense, what other trade(s) needs to get done 1st to get 2 bigs?

    I dont know if the Pacers want to make such a huge trade a disrupt the chemistry right now
