    Default Kings

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=a3w62kk

    Jose Calderon, Andrea Bargnani & Linas Kleiza to Sacramento

    John Salmons, Marcus Thornton, Chuck Hayes & Tyreke Evans to Toronto

    Valanciunas/Hayes/Gray
    Davis/Johnson/Acy
    DeRozan/Fields/Piétrus/Salmons
    Evans/Thornton/Ross/Anderson
    Lowry/Lucas

    Really, really good backcourt, Tyreke can also play the point.
    Davis can start.
    Although undersized, Hayes is a really good backup center.
    Thornton is the perfect 6th man.
    Salmons is there to make the trade work but he's still a good player.

    This, to me, help us build the team for the future.

    Here's what our team could look like by next season with that trade:

    Valanciunas/Dalembert/Gray
    Davis/Johnson/Hayes
    DeRozan/Fields/Salmons
    Evans/Thornton/Ross
    Lowry/Harris/Lucas

    Talent-wise this trade is not bad. Considering the state the Raps. are in, it's not a solution for the future IMO. Except Westbrook, the other incoming players are too costly and cripples financial flexibility which is very essential to a struggling team.

    We are not getting both evans and thornton, maybe one of them beside i think ross has more upsides than evans, there is a reason why he's picked at No8. I don't want to see Ross come off the bench or let alone a 3rd stringer SG, we need a pure SF, DeRozan and Ross are locked at the 2 spot for years to come, getting Evans and Thornton are too redundant and useless, practically we would be having 4 SG with DeRozan, a slightly SF, so no. We need SF like in Parsons, Gay, Deng, Singler, Prince, Derrick Williams or even Markieff Morris.
