My trade proposal after the jump to a.Get John Wall more minutes b. Finally dump Gilbert Arenas and c.Create a large sum of cap space next year to lure free agents.
4 Team Trade
Why: They're basically just trading Diaw for their solution at PG and new PF and make their defense even stronger with a lineup of Hinrich, Jackson, Wallace, Thomas, Martin.
Recieve:Turiaf, Curry, Smith, Diaw
Why:They trade two big contracts that would only take Walls minutes and they get 3 solid bench guys(maybe starters) and 4 expiring contracts. They will have only Blatche, Booker, Wall, 2011 1st rounder and Seraphin on their 2011-2012 roster payroll so they will have enough to offer 2 max contracts(almost 3) to free agents and lure huge names to Washington next summer.
Why:After they trade Carmelo they will need to cut their ginormous payroll and this goes a huge way towards that by sending out disgruntled Smith and Martins expiring contract for Dampier whom they waive immediately and save around 20 million immediately(worth much more cause they're over the cap).
Why:They get their new flashy PG to feed Amare and finally send out Curry with Turiaf.
There would possibly be some draft picks involved too(like Denver giving up some) and Cash Considerations here and there but this is what I came up with. Share your comments below.
Basically this trade for the Wizards is to be a Contender in 2012 with a young nucleus and 2huge stars added through free-agency. The roster before adding the other stars:
That alone is a atleast a 30 win team and then when you add in 2 All-Stars you have a Legit Contender plus the top 5 lottery pick this year and you're looking at the most improved team in 2012.
