Toronto Trades: Chris Bosh, Jose Calderon, Sonny Weems, 2010 first round pick
New Orleans Trades: Peja Stojakovic, Emeka Okafor, Darren Collison, Marcus Thornton
Toronto gets 2 young studs (collison, thornton), an expiring contract (peja), and a long-term centre (okafor) in exchange for Bosh, Jose, and Weems.
Toronto can use Peja's expiring $15 mil contract at the deadline to adjust the roster as necessary. They also have close to $10 mil in expirings with Reggie/Banks. That's $25 million in expiring contracts!
New Orleans gets one of the top forwards in the game, a back-up PG at a starter's salary, and a developing GF. In addition they get a second lottery pick for this season. They also unload Okafor's contract with a cheaper and shorter Jose contract, but are effectively replacing him with Chris Bosh.
PG: Chris Paul/Jose Calderon
SG: Sonny Weems/Morris Peterson
SF: James Posey/Julian Wright
PF: David West/ Darius Songaila
C: Chris Bosh/(Cole Aldrich?)
A 1-2-3 punch of Chris Paul, Chris Bosh, and David West should be excellent at competing in the West. And with the two lottery picks for 2010 they can fill any holes they might have with developing young studs.
