    True. But in his defense, it's hard to make the salaries match, dude makes 19 mil...

    I could totally see Amare + shump or a pick for Pau or something

    This might actually happen; whenever the Lakers enter a slump, some team comes up with a trade that gets them back on top of the West.

    Not sure what the Bucks are thinking. The sense I get is that they're more interested in keeping Ellis than Jennings. But I really don't know. An Ellis/Jefferson swap is pretty even, so I think they would at least consider it.

    I doubt the Jazz do this, though. I'd be all up for finally beginning the youth movement, but I just don't think the FO is willing to risk being in the lottery.

    Some sportswriter on the Hoopshype twitter feed had posted these two 4-team trades involving the jazz. They might be realistic, but they are absolutley craptastic.

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=b8d9dof Atleast we get Faried on this deal.
    Mr. O'Lindsey, please don't trade the pick just because you feel fan frustration about how the season ended. It is the last lottery pick the Jazz will get in the next 5 years. Use it wisely.

    In the first trade I think the Lakers would just get cut out and you'd end up with Gallinari and Wilson for Burks and Millsap.

    I like that the Jazz get Faried but that means there is still a log jam.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    The second one would be a good deal for the Jazz. I think Faried is already as good as Millsap, only in his second year, and is super cheap for 3 more years. Gasol is overpaid but would be off the books by the time Kanter and Burks (if applicable) need extending.

    Also, you could just trade Pau for Millsap and Jefferson if you wanted to cut out the middle man, unless you think you're making them too good.
    I added cheerleader just for you.

    I think Sap, Ellis, Foye & Bell are much more attractive than two bigs. LA's bench is downright awful and they won't go far without strengthening it significantly.


    Also, to those of you who don't want to strengthen LA: I don't care how good LA is when the Jazz are this bad/unwatchable.

    I didn't dare to hope that you did. You're too good to me!

    We're the garbage team that's added just to make the salaries match up. Wilson Chandler has a decent contract, but he's always injured. And nobody wants Deshawn Stevenson...

    Both trades make the Lakers legitimate contenders....this dude has got to be a laker fan.

    At least it would be watchable.

    A great bench 6th man type.
    You really think Devin ebanks or Jamison's corpse would start over millsap?

    The Nuggets wouldn't do either of those deals.
