    Default Bosh & Calderon to Houston

    Would you do this S&T:

    Bosh, Calderon & Toronto 2nd 2012
    FOR
    Ariza, one of Brooks/Lowry, one of Hill/Scola, Houston 1st 2010 and New York 1st 2012

    use expiring contracts to even out salaries.

    I went with Calderon for Houston because:

    a. I don't think Houston takes Turkoglu regardless;
    b. Calderon is a proven bench strength and better fit/distributor for Houston if he has Yao/Bosh to send passes to;
    c. Calderon's contract is cheaper and shorter than Turkoglu's (far more enticing to Houston imo)

    Great trade for TO all things considered as:

    1. Ariza is a nice fit for Turkoglu (if Turks is retained) or replacement for him if Turks is traded
    2. Either one of Brooks or Lowry make for a nice back-up/co-chair for Jack
    3. I much prefer Scola as it retains as much competitiveness as possible for the Raps but Hill is a nice consolation prize and has better upside
    4. The picks allow us to continue to retool/help dump Turks
    5. Calderon is one of the problem contracts and dumping it is a big plus
    6. What we lose with Bosh we may get via the massive defensive upgrade that this trade represents (especially if its Scola at PF)

    PG Jack/Brooks or Lowry
    SG Weems/DeRozan
    SF Turks/Ariza
    PF Johnson/Scola or Hill
    .C Bargnani

    Banks, Bellinelli, Evans remain last-year contracts up for trade going forward.

    Center spot remains an issue but hopefully a trade would deal with that.

    "use expiring contracts to even out salaries."

    Uh, WHAT expiring contracts? Bosh and Calderon would make approximately $28 million. Try and find $28 million of Houston contracts that is not going to completely gut the team, because right now you're not even close.

    Jeffries has a PO for ~ $6.9 million and Hayes has a TO at $2.3 million.

    Next year Bosh and Calderon come to ~ $26.1 million.

    Going with the cheaper trade option:

    Jeffries (6.9) + Ariza (6.3) + Hill (2.7) + Brooks (2.0) + Draft Picks (x2 at ~ 1.5 each = 3.0)
    = ~ $20.9 million.

    Using the 125% available = ~ $26.1 million

    This wouldn't be hard math and I find it hard to believe the teams couldn't make it happen - EASILY - if they wanted to. This isn't a jumping-through-hoops 'Turk' style deal.

    Also - I fail to see where Houston's roster would be 'gutted'. Their roster (before any other signings):

    PG Brooks or Lowry/Calderon
    SG Martin
    SF Battier/Budinger
    PF Bosh/Scola or Hill
    .C Yao/Anderson

    That's 9 quality starters right there and two of those are top-5 at their positions.

    YKOil, Bosh and Calderon will be making at least $28 million, not $26. Remember that Bosh will be getting a raise by becoming a free agent.

    He can only get 30% of the cap. If the new Cap number is $56.1 million this gives him a new starting number of $16.83. Newsflash: He actually takes a small dip on the 1st year of a new deal compared to the last year of his current one ($17.15).

    Bosh ($16.83) + Calderon ($9.00) = $25.83 million
