I had to think hard about this b/c the deadline is about to near us. And both teams are in a need of a shake up, more so the Nets than the Roxs, but the Roxs have championship aspirations, the Nets need a light to look forward to and some excitement.
Why Deron to the Rockets makes sense? to pair a potential stable backcourt that is PO tested. It also puts Deron where he's comfortable which is the West and w/ a star big and swingman.
Blatche to the Rockets makes sense? b/c he has 1 more yr. in his deal and he's an asset. A big w/ skill to run the floor in their offense. Makes losing Jones in this deal reasonable. Plus he can help Dwight on the boards or be a bench guy for the 2nd unit.
Why Lin + Asik makes sense for the Nets? You get an athletic guard to pair w/ Livingston or use off the bench and KG has a C he can work with on the floor and it adds depth for back to back nights.
Why Jones + Monti to the Nets makes sense. B/c in trading Deron Williams you're pairing a big 3 in Houston that can potentially make the Western Conference Final. These deals need to make sense for both sides. Jones + Monti are young, energetic [fan pleasers] still have a lot of growing to do and the Nets don't have to worry about extending their contracts until they are under the cap.
This makes too much sense to not happen. Now the question is do the Nets have the guts to make it and do the Roxs pull the trigger.
