Rereading that Bill Simmons trade piece:
Iguodala isn't worth the franchise max for a bad team, but if he's your second- or third-best player on a contender with deep pockets, it's not the worst thing in the world. He's not making or breaking the Sixers. He doesn't sell tickets. Doesn't that make him expendable? Leading us to …
Fake Trade 11: Philly trades Dalembert, Iguodala and Jason Kapono's EC to Miami for the O'Neal/Richardson/Dorell Wright ECs. Philly ends up with its fifth overpaid has-been frontcourt player this decade (joining Dikembe Mutombo, Chris Webber, Derrick Coleman and Brand in what's becoming a tradition right up there with Easter and Thanksgiving); Quentin Richardson adds another team in his quest to play for all 30; Kapono ends up back in Miami, a nostalgic romp for all 43 Heat fans; and Miami becomes a fringe contender with a Wade-Iguodala-Dalembert-Beasley nucleus. This one makes too much sense.
I know this is BS just throwing stuff at the wall, but would you forgoe any cap space this summer to deal Blount, Cardinal, Gomes, and maybe Hollins for Iggy and Dalembert at the deadline?
Iguodala's playmaking would offset Flynn a bit and he plays very good defense. He's not a great 3 pt shooter though (and his overall FG% dropped a lot this year for some reason) and makes a LOT of money. His age fits well with our core.
Dalembert is vastly overpaid, but only has one year left and would actually complement Al/Love for that time. He'd be a big expiring to possibly use next year.
