What does everyone think about this? I'm just as tired of losing players than the next person, but I do think if we can take advantage of the trade exception we have without losing any key players, we should definitely do it. Obviously we would only be looking to trade with teams that need a trade exception to get their payroll down. I've heard rumors about teams like Orlando and Philli looking to trade some good players before the trade deadline.
Orlando has been rumored to be shopping JJ Redick.
Philli is rumored to be shopping Nick Young.
Teams like Golden State, Denver and Portland are some other smaller market teams that are over the luxury tax...Golden State has Brandon Rush, Denver has Wilson Chandler, and Portland has Wes Matthews. All great players that are making around 5-6 million.
If we could somehow land one of these guys it would be absolutely great. The only thing is, what do they want in return? I really don't want to lose anybody besides Leuer at this point lol. If somehow we can pull something off like what Cleveland did with us, it would be amazing. If we can throw them Leuer for one of these guys we should DEFINITELY do it(we won't even ask for a 1st round pick like Cleveland did hahahaha!!)...Heck, if one of these teams is in dire need to save money, who knows what could happen...
