Im hoping we trade Brown and Telfair, and Gortat for the right price
Hedo Turk & JJ Reddick for Rudy Gay. MEM gets a shooter in JJ with an exipiring contract & Hedo's contract expires after next season & can be bought out at the beginning of next season. ORL gets a good building block in Rudy Gay.
I could see Denver looking for a shooter/low post player. Somebody who makes it so that the team doesn't live or die by the fastbreak. Reddick looks like a fit. It would be difficult for me to let go of Chandler (provides solid defense, can hit shots of his own) but you need to be able to hit 3's consistently this day in age. Koufos has played well this year but if the team feels they can upgrade at the position I'd suspect they'd look Al Jefferson or Gasol (a far shot).
Durant,Westbrook,Ibaka and 2 1st round picks for Luke Walton.
I would love to see the Celtics make a trade but honestly I do not see them trading Pierce or KG allowing a trade with his no trade clause. The Atlanta Hawks need to move Josh Smith, he will not be resigning and they will walk away with nothing. I think Josh Smith to Detroit for their 1st round pick Andre Dummond and Tayshaun Prince would be a good move for the franchise

Why for Clippers?
They get the best defensice low post guy in Garnett and a guy who can create his own shot in Pierce. Makes them instant favorites for the West.
Why would Garnett not veto the trade?
He is from LA. Will get to end his career in sunny LA, while challenging for a title on a team that has a legit chance to win it all. With Pierce also in the trade, I don't see KG saying no to the trade.
Why would Boston do it?
They get an athletic big man on a reasonable contract, a great prospect in Bledsoe, a serviceable player in Butler with a short and relatively cheap contract and an expiring contract in Odom. They can go ahead and just waive Odom as we all know Odom can't play if he's not near the beach.
Maybe the Clippers can pick him up from waivers then.

Rumours have it that Raps REALLY want to land Gay and are willing to ship out Calderon and Ed Davis to do so http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/88...zzlies-sources
That's just a rumour though, and the Grizzlies may very well stick with what they have following the Cleveland cash dump.
There's also talk circulating that both PGs, Calderon and Lowry, could be moved by deadline. And obviously Bargnani, but he's been on the trading block for a while - and injured for a while - so that's likely not happening. Toronto will be an active trading partner if they're given the opportunity this month, and with two serviceable PGs potentially at their disposal that may very well happen.
