Boston receives SF Rudy Gay, G Kirk Hinrich, C Al Jefferson
Chicago receives PF Zach Randolph, F/C Kevin Garnett, and SG Jason Terry
Memphis receives SF Paul Pierce, PF Paul Milsap and SG Richard Hamilton
Utah receives PF Carlos Boozer, SF Luol Deng, C Fab Melo, and Chicago and Memphis' 1st round draft picks.

Why for Boston? With the loss of Rondo for the season the Celtics go into short rebuilding mode. They trade away Garnett and Pierce to teams that can contend this year. They get to keep there best trade assets in Bradley, Green and Sullinger. They are going to have to resign Jefferson at the end of the season but I don't think that would be a problem.

Why for Chicago? They get to shed Boozers contract while being able to use there amnesty on him and replace him with a Beast in the paint in Randolph, they lose an all star in Deng but they have Jimmy Butler playing incredible basketball right now for 12 mil less per year. They get added low post depth with Garnett in case of injury to Gray, Randolph or Noah and he could he retire at the end of the year giving them a 12 million dollar expiring contract.

Why for Memphis? For some reason they want to shake things up and Randolph and Gay are being dangled out. They get to replace Randolph and Gay with Paul Pierce and Paul Millsap. They are going to have to resign Millsap at the end of the season but with the high contracts they already had that shouldn't be a problem. Pierce can become there guy at the end of the game to take the big shot and would replace Gay easily. They also get an experienced wing scorer in Rip Hamilton.

Why for Utah? With both Jefferson and Millsap being free agents they don't have a lot of choice but to resign them or let them walk. Problem is behind them they have two studs waiting to become possible stars in Favors and Kanter. With Boozer they get a good back up post player in Boozer that they can amnesty at the end of the season and get 15 million in cap relief. The big prize is the adding Luol Deng on the wing. Being able to move an experienced all star into the starting line up should help out the younger players. With Fab Melo they get a young project center that they can start grooming. Not to mention 2 high first round draft picks don't hurt.

I don't miss Boozer at all. Taking him on would mean we wouldn't be able to sign either Kanter or Favors to extensions.

Not if you use your amnesty on him. You will free up 15 million in cap space so you can resign Kanter and Favors and still have Luol Deng.
