Trading Ammo and Sasha (4 options) - Add ideas!

Trading Ammo and Sasha (4 options) - Add ideas!

Postby TheGM on Wed Jul 01, 2009 1:15 am

Trying to think of teams that want to shed long term salary that the Lakers try to trade Morrison and/or Sasha for and even get back an asset in the process. I came up with 4 options, does anyone else have ones that might work?

1. Posey - 3 yrs/ 19 mil - Sasha for Posey.

Why NO's would do it? Highest payroll in the league, need to save long term money.
Why Lakers' would do it? Posey is a 10x better defender than Sasha, can be used to guard 2-4 in certain situations.

2. DeShawn Stevenson - 2 yr / 8 Mill - Offer Morrison and 2nd rounder for Nick Young and Stevenson.

Why Wizards? Traded for Foye and Miller - Stevenson and NY are expendable, would save Wizards close to 7 million, giving enough space under the cap to sign a Max FA in 2010.
Why Lakers? Stevenson is a pretty good backup SG / defender and a dependable 3 point shooter. Might be able to play some PG. Nick Young is an explosive scorer who has all-star potential IMO. Getting Nick Young included might be a pipe dream, but would still explore trading Morrison and exception for Stevenson. Would save Lakers 4 million this year.


3. Eddy Curry - 2 yrs/ 21 Mil - Offer Sasha or Luke and Morrison for Curry and Chandler.

Why Knicks? Gives Knicks an extra 6 million in salary cap space in 2010.
Why Lakers? Playing for a winning team might turn Curry's light bulb on. He has talent, just not the mental aspects. Knicks might be willing to takes Luke's longer salary to save money next year. Chandler would be a great addition to the Lakers and have to be included to absorb Curry's contract for 2010-2011.

4. Keyon Dooling - 2 yrs/ 7.5 Mil - Offer Morrison and Trade exception

Why Nets? Save another 3.8 Million to spend on 2010 FA's
Why Lakers? Might be an option at the PG position. Lakers would bring back 2 million less in salary ( save 4 million total with luxury tax)

like option 1 or 2, but 3 is horrible.....NOTHING and I mean NOTHING is going to motivate Dough Boy aka Curry....Powell does more then enough at the backup 4 and Curry has barely played a handful of gms over the last 2 years if we gona waste that kind of space and money I rather take back Ronny and his contract.

The only thing that could motivate Curry is more food...

I like option number 2, and the Wiz wouldn't mind trading with us based on the fact that their in the east, and have already solidified their roster for the season. IMO shedding some excess weight wouldn't be an issue for them. They gain an ending contract with Ammo, and add a draft pick. Sounds like a solid suggestion. We would have a solid combo guard in Stevenson (Ron Harperish) and a good backup to kobe with Young. He could learn a ton under kobe, he's got a lot of upside!

How about...

Morrison/Farmar/Sasha for Kirk Hinrich.

Why the Chicago Bulls do it?
Hinrich has been playing backup PG ever since the Bulls received Rose. By receiving Morrison + Farmar, they get expiring contracts and Farmar is still a more than capable backup PG. With Sasha they get a capable backup SG who's contract also ends a year sooner than Hinrich's, thus giving them more flexibility.

By doing this trade with LA, the Bulls cut payroll and add depth at the same time.

The Bulls could potentially have a depth chart of

Noah/Miller
Tyrus Thomas/tim Thomas
Deng/Morrison
Salmons/Vujacic
Rose/Farmar

Why the Lakers do it?
The Lakers do this because they can potentially receive something in return for their expiring contracts, instead of letting them expire and getting nothing in return. They receive a starting calibre PG who is a 2-way player, able to play offense and defense. Hinrich is also capable of playing spot minutes at SG, as he has done so for Chicago. This way he can fill in for Kobe when Kobe is on the bench resting up.

The Lakers have to give up relatively little in exchange. Vujacic and Farmar have both shown to be inconsistant and poor decision makers, and Ammo doesn't even get any playing time.

By receiving Hinrich, the Lakers solidify their starting PG position as Fisher continues to get closer to retirement.

Lakers depth chart ends up looking like
Bynum/Mbenga
Gasol/Odom/Powell
Artest/Walton
Kobe/Brown/Hinrich
Hinrich/Fisher/Brown
