    Trade with Cleveland

    Jazz trade

    Millsap
    Jefferson
    Mo


    For

    Dion Waiters
    Varejao
    Gibson (garbage piece/salary filler)
    Walton (garbage piece/salary filler)


    Main reason is to get Waiters. Cleveland might have messed up their draft with a little bit of redundancy with Waiters and Erving. Waiters is an undersized shooting guard that is looking like he can play point guard. He averaged nice assists while Erving was out, and he runs the point on their second unit.

    I have no idea how this would go. Im just pulling it out my ass, because it sounded fun to make a trade thread.

    Why we do it- Its better than not taking a chance, and not trying to get better. And for other obvious reasons.

    Why Cleveland does it.- They pretend that they arent just getting back soon to be UFA's. And they suck pretty good. Who knows, maybe they think they can re-sign Al or Paul for a good deal. If they want a pick or two then sure. Why not?

    It works in the trade machine.

    I suggested Jefferson for Varejao straight up months ago - before AV decided to have a career year.

    Good luck making that happen now.

    Cleveland is asking an arm and a leg for Varejao. I love his defense but it'll come at a big cost

    Just for those that got lost with my joke .. CrawInstall named 'Erving' in his post. I called him old. Kyrie is spelled Irving, whereas Julius spelled his Erving.

    I feel better now.

    The Cavs drafted Waiters well beyond where he was actually projected to be. There's a reason they did that and I'm not sure it'd be wise to give up on whatever reason that was in less than a year.

    So the Cavs would give up the #4 pick in this past draft to acquire 3 players that aren't signed past this season to help their nonexistent playoff push?
