    Default Three way with Orlando and Minny

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=ajlxsr2

    Orlando gets: Derrick Williams, and Linas Kleiza,
    Minny gets: JJ Redick and Trade Exception for 4.8 mil
    Toronto gets: JJ Barea and Andrew Nicholson

    Orlando gets a good young PF, can tank even better for the 1st pick

    Minny gets the shooter they've wanted for sooooo long...as well as a Trade Exception, and that's an asset.

    We get a young PF for our future, and a backup PG.


    Thoughts?

    Orlando can get a much better deal for Reddick without having to take on a bad contract like Kleiza

    I s'pose that's a good point, but then they would want to try and get the 1st pick as well, right? I mean they're already tanking, just now they're tanking more, so indirectly this trade would sort of allow them to choose who they want between Ben McLemore and Shabazz Muhammad.

    Instead of allowing Charlotte or Phoenix to have that choice...

    I agree. The only team(s?) I can think of that would take Kleiza is LA. Not because they'd want him, but because they are much more concerned with clearing capspace for next year instead of this year.

    the raptors give up an overpaid player who chucks shots. Why would Minni and Orlando not just do reddick for williams straight up.
    For the Raptors to get involved we would need to give up some one other than Kleiza/Fields.
    What about
    Raps Receive: Nicholson, Afflalo and Malcolm Lee
    TWolves Receive: Derozan
    Magic Receive: Anderson, Gray and Williams
    Orlando gets a prospect, a shooter, and a big man, Toronto gets a young pf and a good perimeter 2 guard to work with gay, and minnesotta gets an athletic scorer.
    Still don't know if Minni would do it but Derozan could work well with rubio.
