Sacramento 2014 2nd round pick
Wizards 2014 2nd round pick
We trade Calderon for a young 1-2 guard who can score the ball. You could argue this creates a logjam at the 2 but the wings are very versatile and can play the 2 or 3 at times, and Crawford can also play point. This adds to our depth incase of injury. We drop Ed Davis clearing the logjam at PF. We do take on Arizas big contract but he'll be a decent backup for fields since we trade Kleiza aswell. They also receive a better backup then Gray in Pachulia and could start while Val makes the transition and move Amir back to the PF position.
Pretty simple. They need a 3 of any kind after trading Marvin Williams for Devin Harris. They're extremely thin there and I believe they'd gladly do the trade.
They shed Arizas 2 yr 15 million dollar contract. Jordan Crawford would be getting a smaller role with Beal now. They don't have a pass first point guard. Jose will backup Wall well and is capable starter until Wall gets back from his injury. They get a backup PF for Nene (or Okafor, whoever starts at 4)
Not a bad trade actually. Makes sense because you're addressing the Calderon situation. BUT, the only reason why I would deny the trade is, even though Ariza is a solid player, it hurts our financial flexibility moving forward, not to mention our point guards will have some serious cases of 'tunnel vision.' As much as Lowry is a top 10 point guard, he's a guy, (along with Crawford and Lucas), that look for theirs first.
I was thinking about Ariza aswell. His contract is only 2 years though. He hinders our flexibility for 1 year then becomes a valuable trade asset the next. Good point about the pg's though. Didn't think about that.
