Realistic Small Forward Trade Options
 
What's a realistic trade scenario for a small forward that will work for both parties?

The market for an SF isn’t great. Let's mention some of the possible realistic options if we're operating under the premise that none of our key pieces are going to be moved; in no particular order (you can add):

Trevor Ariza (2 years)
John Salmons (2 years left, third NG)
Wilson Chandler (3 years, 4h NG)
Shawn Marion (2 years)
Tayshaun Prince (3 years)
Wesley Johnson (1 year)
Mike Miller (LOL JK)
Chris Douglas Roberts (NBA DL UFA)
Other....

Furthermore, I'm fairly confident BC will not move Lowry, Valanciunas, and DeRozan. He may be more likely to move Bargnani now, but who knows if he will or if the right deal comes along. Players like Terrence Ross and Bargnani are obviously going to net us more than the above mentioned names. Feel free to suggest ANYONE (key pieces included), but we'll see if it holds up to scrutiny.

Aaron Afflalo, Paul George, Nic Batum, Danilo Galinari, Tyreke Evans, Granny Danger.....

I suggested this before but bringing it up again because you mentioned Salmons,

Raptors Out: Andrea Bargnani,Jose Calderon,Terrence Ross
Raptors In: Paul Millsap, John Salmons,Eric Maynor

Jazz Out: Paul Millsap
Jazz In: Kendrick Perkins,Terrence Ross

Thunder Out: Kendrick Perkins,Jeremy Lamb,Eric Maynor
Thunder In: Andrea Bargnani,Tyreke Evans

Kings Out: Tyreke Evans,John Salmons
Kings In: Jose Calderon,Jeremy Lamb

Nic Batum is very far from realistic, Tyreke Evans isn't a SF, Galinari is unlikely and i also think Indiana won't give up on George already.

Afflalo looks good atm

MBailey85 12-03-2012 03:23 PM

What about Dorrell Wright of the Sixers,formerly Warriors? He's young,can shoot the 3...

Agreed. I like Evans and he's probably available but I can't see them moving derozan to the three. The closest guy on the list that could be available is Danny Granger. The pacers would ask for a lot and his health is a cause for concern.

Watch him play, he can defend the SF spot as well as anyone.

that's good to know but I guess I'm old-school, I like/prefer players playing in their natural positions.

He's not a true 3 and we already have Kleiza in that same role.... too many of those guys.... if he can genuinely defend the SF spot, I'm on board. I like his size and swagger, but he looks heavy on his feet and he doesn't look smooth at all. If he can move his feet quick enough, fine.

LOG 12-03-2012 04:19 PM

Didn't wizards wanted to trade Ariza and Okafor+ pick to get rid of their shitty contracts? We could make that happen, getting that pick would be huge

Give the Wolves Calderon, I'm sure they'd love to have him. I'd happily take back Derrick Williams and Ridnour. I have no clue how the salaries match up though... ;) I'd take Derrick over Linas every day. There's simply too much talent and upside there. I've seen him play some insane games, athleticism, great range, everything. Defensively I'm not sure...

I don't think Jose gets both those guys.... add in Ed and it's not a bad deal for both.
