And if we're worried about Crash not reporting, lets adjust the trade to send him elsewhere.
I would suggest something similar though.
Peja for Kaman and some incentive. Clippers have two options that they could send our way to suppliment the deal: Aminu or Minnesota's 2011 First Round Pick (top 10 protected, unprotected in 2012). I would prefer the pick as it would most likely be a high lottery 2012 pick.
As far as the C position for the Clips, I did mention including Alabi to help with their depth. We also have to remember that they have a SUPERSTAR 4 who defends/rebounds like a 5.
There is NO WAY that they're trading Aminu, so, like I've proposed, lets try to get a pick or two out of them as well.
This one is a reach; I don't know why CLE would do this, but I also can't figure out which other team in the league is in the market for this player, or has the assets to aquire him. We'd probably have to include a pick to make it work, but I think this might be the trade to vault us into the playoffs. This year.
We absorb the final year of Chris Kaman (along with hsi 15% trade kicker) and the final year of Randy Foye (useless). In exchange we send the Clippers Peja's big expiring contract (saves them money to resign Deandre Jordan) and Sonny Weems (fairly inexpensive but athletic SG to back-up Eric Gordon).
In exchange for saving the Clippers $16mil for next season, they send us Minnesota's 2011 First Round Pick (top 10 protected, unprotected 2012). Worst case scenario we have chew up some salary space for an injured Center (he should be back soon) and also get a top pick in the process. Best case scenario, Kaman comes back healthy and adds to our team, and we get a top pick as well.
