Nets need an athletic SF to complete this team going forward.
Example of where Iím trying to go with this. Last year Rudy Gay was traded to Toronto in a 3-team deal.
Toronto got: Gay
Memphis got: Ed Davis, Hamed Haddadi, Austin Daye, Tayshaun Prince, & 2013 2nd Rd pick from Toronto
Detroit got: Jose Calderon
Nets get: Danilo Gallinari (3yrs/$10,146,925), Anthony Randolph (2yrs/$1,750,000)
*Brooklyn is able to get a younger more athletic SF who is able to score from anywhere on the floor, especially from 3-pt range, however Gallinari is coming off a torn ACL from late last season. This doesnít scare me for trading for him because this day and age players come back from torn ACLs. When healthy, he would give the Nets the additional help to score the ball, in the half-court offense and on the fast break, while also helping to space the floor so Lopez can operate down low.
Anthony Randolph is a throw in to help make the salaries match and to help at the SF position while Gallinari is still rehabbing. He is still young, 24, and still has potential.
* This would be a money motived move for Denver by trading Gallinari who is still injured coming off a torn ACL late last season. By receiving Pierce, the Nuggets will save a total of $17,818,569, however the main reason for this trade is it will save them $11,896,925 of extra cap space for next season, giving them flexibility moving forward.
Shengelia is also a throw in, but again is young and has some potential.
Or how about this 3-team trade:
Nets get: Gallinari and Randolph
Denver gets: Pierce (expiring), Perkins (2014 would be last year), Sefolosha (expiring), Shengelia (expiring), Nets 2015 2nd Rd Pick, Thunder 2014 1st Rd Pick (from Mavs)
