great trade: i love jamison but it is time to rebuild
Trade with portland trailblazers
Wizards get: Jerryd Bayless (2.5mil), Steve Blake (4mil), Travis Outlaw (3.5mil)
Portland gets: Antawn Jamison (11mil)
ESPN Trade machine says it works and the Blazers would definitely be willing to complete the deal because they are in need of a good veteran. Jamison is a leader and would be fine with being the sixth man.
Jerryd Bayless is the only contract that does not come off the books and he has a lot of potential to become a greats scorer and become a good pg
Don't you think the Trail Blazers would want/need Brendan Haywood more?

I agree. I think they'd have more interest in Haywood considering they've lost two Centers and Haywood comes off the books this year. I, however, would say that Haywood is probably the one guy on this team I would absolutely want back next year. He's arguably our best defender and a legit 7-footer.

I agree. Isn't he a restricted FA?

So if the Cavs are serious about wanting to trade for AJ, what would you want?
I'd like to see this...
1st rd pick
How close is that?
How about this:
Cavs get Jamison and Korver
Wiz get Hickson and Okur
Jazz get Big Z, Green and the Cavs 2010 1st
Cavs do it to get Jamison and a lights out 3 point shooter. Wiz do it to save money the next couple of years while also getting a good center and promising young PF. Jazz do it to save $2 million in salaries this year, get the expiring Z and get a draft pick.
Alright SluggeR, I could get on board with letting Rudy and Bayless go to get DLee and Caron Butler, not a bad deal for Portland

denver is also a frontrunner for haywood :)
T-Mac and Brian Cook for Caron Butler, Mike Miller and Javale McGee.
Rockets get rid of T-Mac and pick up a needed wing.
Wizards get 25 million in expiring contracts.
Great idea! It's actually a very good possibility. I just hope to land possibly 2 big FA this coming offseason. We'll definitely have the money to spend if we can void Gil's contract and trade for McGrady's expiring contract.

I would really like that McGrady trade.
As much as I love Jamison, and would love him to stay here, we dont deserve him. He is way too good of a player to be in such a mess here.
Wouldnt be a great business move, but I would say to him "Give us a list of 5 teams you want to go to, we can try and make it happen."
He has already stated that he is retiring after his contract runs out, so I would like to see him get a couple runs at the Championship.
