Legit Trades (part 2)

Published: August 22, 2011

Here is another blockbuster trade.(Not with D. Howard)



     T. Ariza, M. Bellineli, J. Jack, 2nd rd pick


     D. Granger, B. Rush



Pros: They get an amazing defensive player in Ariza, a great pg in jjack, a decent shooter with Bellineli, and a tall big man with Mbenga(7 ft)

Cons: They loose there best player but dont get anyone to be that best player which means they dont have a superstar.


Pros: We get a superstar and a good shooter who will help us keep getting better and get us far in the playoffs but not a title(i think we need a good center)

Cons: We didnt get a replacement for jjack and we still dont have a good backup sf.

IND: B      Collison/George/Ariza/Hansbrough/Hibbert

NOH A-     Paul/Rush/Granger/West/Okafor

    As a person that post “potential” trade proposals I can’t knock the hustle. With that said there are so many variables you don’t take into account. Salary cap for example. It’s coming down and I hate to sound like a broken record, but it’s going to be either a hard cap or much firmer cap with stronger luxury tax penalties(personally I think it’s the latter). Either way even if the players bulldozes the owners and we have a CBA with no cap. As a small market team there’s no way we can afford to have 40mil invested in only 3 players.

    On top of the fact that IND doesn’t need a PG, lack scoring and bigs. Why trade away your best player? One again just like I strongly believe the cap ceiling will be firmer I think the cap floor will be firmer so teams will have to spend

    i think this trade needs to add in a third team like Phi or something. and I would try our best to get not only D.Granger, but R.Hibbert as well and try to give Okafor to them or Phi.

    Phi gets=E.Okafor,B.Rush,M.Dunleavy, 1st rDP(IND)
    NOH gets=D.Granger, R.Hibbert
    Ind gets= IGGY,M.belinelli, Spencer Hawes Future 1ST RDP (NOH) optinional

      This is trade is possible. Though with the premium placed on big men I doubt Ind would be willing to trade Hibbert simply just to swap Iggy for Danny(which IMO is about an even trade). Roy is young, healthy, improving, and maybe most importantly inexpensive.

    I’d rather do without Brandon Rush. I like the idea of Granger but wow his contract sucks.

    I just really doubt anyone wants to buy what we’re selling here–ariza? He’s getting paid about 2-3m more than he should be based on one championship run in LA (which was a great run, mind you).

    I don’t care what anyone say Hornets need to bet big and win big NOW or lose everything and start over or possiblity lose New Orleans name as part of Hornets. we need to trade for at Least one or two of these Superstarz:
    Iggy, D.Granger, Kev-Mart,D.Howard,ME8, J.Smith and A.Bangnani.

    sign or resign starter types like:J.R.Smith, Marc Gasol, Carl Landry, D.West etc.:

    trade for legit starters like:Rudy Gay, O.J. Mayo, Pau Gasol etc,

    LOL. there was a flaw in my plan because M.Dunleavy is (FA) I guess we can trade MD and put someone from (PHI) in that trade.
