    Default Indiana/Boston/Dallas

    One thing I keep hearing is that if Dallas gets rid of Shawn Marion, they have enough space this summer to go after DWill and Dwight. This is the trade I came up with adding the Pacers and Rondo:

    Pacers give:
    Darren Collison
    picks (this years first and I would consider sending another 1st but would hope we could make it a second rounder)

    Pacers receive:
    Rajon Rondo

    Boston gives:
    Rajon Rondo
    Ray Allen

    Boston receives:
    Shawn Marion
    Darren Collison
    Rodrigue Beaubois
    picks

    Dallas gives:
    Shawn Marion
    Rodrigue Beaubois
    a second rounder

    Dallas receives:
    Ray Allen

    (trade also works if you take out Beaubois and Allen and move the picks around a bit, maybe Boston sends a second rounder)

    Why for Indiana:
    Use your capspace to upgrade your weakest starting spot at a ridiculously low price for 4 years. Instant contender.

    Why for Boston:
    This is the hardest sell. Marion isn't a long term piece but he is valuable and a DC/Pierce/Marion/Garnett/O'neal (or alternatively DC/Allen/Pierce/Marion/Garnett) lineup would be competitive and you would have picks going forward and a nice piece in Roddy who needs a change of scenery. Would probably be in conjunction with another move from them.

    Why for Dallas:
    Ray expires so he leaves room for free agent moves, Kidd/Allen/Odom/Nowitzki/Mahimni would compete and remove the weird duplication of Marion and Odom or if they gave Marion up just taking back picks or just smaller one year guys I wouldn't be surprised. They punted on the title defense already when they let Chandler walk.

    Yeah that's what I think. Just tinkering.

    What about the thought without Allen, better or worse?

    It's not about Allen, it's about the value they get for Rondo.
    Marion is a medicore player on a medicore contract. Collison is a medicore player. Beaubois doesn't have a lot of upside.
