    Crazy trade idea

    Here's my wildest one yet. Bear with me.

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=anrblnx

    Jazz get Orlando unprotected first, the worse of Denver & NYK 2014 first, and odd protection Phili 1st.(1)

    Why for Jazz? Big Baby will make a nice 3rd big for $6.4. Turk sucks 12mm off and could be bought out. Harrington's deal is only 50% guaranteed the next two seasons, about $3.6mm each. Total Jazz salary next summer would be roughly $40.5 after buying out Harrington, could drop $800k in Murphy, and might get a $million discount on Turkoglu. $9.8mm(2) is a bit to pay for three poor picks but the Jazz are in a position to afford it and still have roughly $20mm in cap space this offseason, 3 first round lottery picks to wheel and deal, and more picks in the pipeline to sweeten any future trades with. There's a lot of room in there to either move up in the draft or make a Harden type trade to complete a young core.

    Why for Orlando? These picks are not that good. Orlando is currently 9th worst overall. They also have little cap room(3) and being dragged down by Turk & Harrington's deals. This gives them bird rights on Bynum (S&T options if nothing else) and $25mm in cap room while finally clearing the books on trying to please Dwight Howard. A core of Jameer, Afflalo, Vucevic, and Bynum if he were to sign wouldn't be bad. The alternative now is no cap space, a late lotto pick in a weak draft, 3 more years of Harrington and Baby, and no cap space to improve.





    (1)
    2015 first round draft pick from Philadelphia
    Philadelphia's own 2015 1st round pick to Orlando two years after Philadelphia satisfies their obligation to convey a 1st round pick to Miami (Top-14 Protected in the 2015 NBA Draft, top-14 protected in 2016, top-11 protected in 2017 and top-8 protected in the 2018 NBA Draft.). If Philadelphia does not send Orlando a first round pick by the 2018 NBA Draft, they Philadelphia shall convey their own 2018 and 2019 second round picks to Orlando. [Denver - L.A. Lakers - Orlando - Philadelphia, 8/10/2012]
    (2) -- 12mm Hedo + 7.2 Harrington - 5.9 total salary change between this season and Marvin's contract next year - $3.5 Raja.

    (3) -- Up to $9.5mm with a Harrington buyout.

    FTR, I think Florida says no but it's a tempting offer.

    Didn't Orlando already say no to Bynum?

    I'd do it in a heartbeat for the reasons you mentioned.

    All of these picks and Hayward, Burks, etc. may be enough to move up and get that stud who should go #1 in 2014.

    Do y'all think big baby wants to be a bench player? Ask Millsap how he feels about it. Same answer.

    All Bynum does is facilitate more salary and getting S&T options that won't come with Jefferson. Here's a counter: http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=atsp85a

    The Jazz price is down to $7.2mm total, fans get rid of every player we love to hate. Orlando could offer to pull 1 of the two picks owed to them (Denver/NYK is the best of the two) but send $3mm in cash. That's $4.2mm for a #9ish pick and the possibility of that Phili pick coming through.

    Picks: Jazz 10ish, Orlando 9ish, GSW 23ish.

    No team will trade the #1 pick in 2014. Guarantee it.
    E.J. Wells vs. NAOS

    The confusion...

    I don't get how buyouts work. You said Turkoglu's 12 mil could be bought out, does that mean the Jazz amnesty him or do we come to an agreement with him so we can cut his contract?

    and big baby will not be our 3rd big, lol.

    Yup, buy him out entirely and release him to FA.
