    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

    He turned 30 in the fall I'm pretty sure. He's not young, but he's playing hot right now..well he was before he got hurt

    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.

    Agreed for obvious reasons.

    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?

    I bet we all wish we had Dion Waiters and the Ghost of Varejao instead of Rodney Hood and a 2017 first-round pick.

    But he totally predicted that GSW salary-dump tarde.


    moar genius.

    I agree: the trade you suggested is terrible. We finally agree on something.

    So what?

    Compared to how many bad ideas you have had. It's not close. I've missed a couple, but nowhere near your level. 150-160 levels worse you are.

    That's why you are stuck rebumping only a couple threads, and I can bump endless bad idea thread from you.

    this whole exercise is not working out for you. Besides, I never claimed to be the best GM on the board. That's on you.
