This trade assumes Matt Barnes does not end up in a Raptors uni (and given complications, that may be true). It also cannot happen until mid-September.
Toronto Trades: Jose Calderon
Dallas Trades: Caron Butler, Alexis Ajinca
Detroit Trades: Richard Hamilton
Toronto Receives: Caron Butler
We still have a whole at back-up C (unless you really believe in Alabi). The trade lessens the offensive load on DeRozan and Bargnani and improves our overall defense. Butler is capable of being a 20ppg scorer if necessary and, when playing the Princeton offense, is a capable passer as well. He's not a very good 3-point shooter though...
Detroit Receives: Jose Calderon, Alexis Ajinca
Detroit needs a pass-first SG like no other. They already have a glut in the back-court and they're playing a combo guard as their starting PG - something that doesn't work quite well with Ben Gordon needing his touches. Jose comes in and distributes the ball giving everyone their touches, and he can keep the defense honest with his own shot. Ajinca has a team option for the following season and is basically a throw-in, but gives them one more big body at a small contract.
Dallas Receives: Richard Hamilton
Everyone and their mother knows that Dallas needs a starting SG. Adding the veteran Hamilton gives them someone who can actually defend opposing SG while still being a formidable offensive option. The contract isn't exactly attractive but Mark Cuban has shown he's willing to spend to improve. This basically means Dallas won't have to start a PG or SF at the SG position anymore! Yay!
