Trade Machine

All I have done today besides my fantasy basketball draft and watch football is play with the trade machine. Usually I play with the Knicks pieces to get rid of Amar'e cause he is trash and can't stay healthy, but that is a different rant. As I stared at the Bobcats lineup and thought who in the world would want any of these players, not MKG, Taylor, or Walker. I first tried to trade Tyrus Thomas because maybe a team making a playoff run needed size to lock down the paint, that looks really doubtful. Diop's expiring contract is a good asset right now, but not sure anyone wants just that and the Bobcats should keep that to open up their own cap space. Then I stumbled upon the potential playoff team that needed a Bobcat player: the Jazz. The Jazz have some pitiful pieces in the back court, and Alec Burks still is not a shooter. Gordon would give the Jazz a legitimate outside scorer and a good shooter as well. So looking at it the Bobcats could conceivably take Ben Gordon and trade him to Utah for Enes Kanter and an expiring contract (probably Earl Watson). This seems a little far fetched but Utah is going to want to be in the playoffs and show the fan base that they will make moves to continue improving. They have four bigs right now that are all going to need to be paid at some point. None of these guys can be on the floor at the same time so they eventually need to move someone. The other possibility would be to trade for Millsap who is expiring right now, which would be good to free up cap space but he'd be nice to keep too. Personally I would rather take on Kanter cause he is young and cheap, which is probably the Jazz's thoughts as well. But why not try to turn Gordon's bad contract into a good young player like Kanter or Millsap?The only reason the Jazz would do this is if they were trying to make a playoff run and realized they needed more outside scoring, they do need more outside scoring. Just a fun hypothetical to think about. Anyone got a better trade machine trade?
