Trade Idea #1
http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=7mf44zs (Note: The Lakers will throw in their 2011-2012 1st round draft pick and their 2013-2014 1st round draft pick)
Why this makes sense for the Lakers?
The Lakers get an up-and-coming, legitimate starting PG, in DJ, who can run an offense and create mismatches for a player who is close to retiring.
Why this makes sense for the Bobcats?
Luke Walton was considering retirement last season because of knee issues and wil retire this season so we won't have to pay his contract. That's 5 million off the books. Also, we recieve 2 1st round draft picks (one for this season and one for two seasons later). Kemba Walker has the chance to start and develop now as well.
Trade Idea #2
Why this makes sense for the Celtics?
The Celtics get young, athletic bigs to boost the effectiveness of their bench in exchange for the walking injury that is Jermaine O'Neal. Tyrus Thomas still has potential to be a good starter and is an elite shotblocker. The Celtics need someone to protect the rim. Byron Mullens can stretch the floor at the 5 and could become a poor man's Dirk at the 4. The loss of Dooling may hurt but, Avery Bradley provides great defense at the backup PG spot, and Cory Higgins can man the 3rd string PG.
Why this trade makes sense for the Cats?
The Cats lose their only bad contract and gain almost 9 million in expirings. Jermaine O'Neal can be a good mentor to Bismack Biyombo and Dooling will take over the backup PG spot.
