I apologize if this is a weak post, but I am a Golden State fan and I had an idea I wanted to run it by Minnesota fans. I saw that many of you are so eager for Turner that you are willing to take on Brand's contract, but don't know if they'll go for it. I think I can solve this problem for you with a four-team trade. Jefferson is a horrible fit with the 76ers, but the Warriors could use Jefferson to allow us to change pace. We can give you the assets to get Turner. We get them from Memphis because they are hot for Monta Ellis. This is how it would go down.
Warriors get Al Jefferson
Memphis gets Monta Ellis
76ers get OJ Mayo and Hasheem Thabeet
Why you do it?
You get the #2 without giving up a single draft pick. You can keep the #4 and draft Cousins or Johnson. You take on Elton Brand, but you guys already seemed up for it.
Why the 76ers do it?
They have a team that was meant to run. Brand has been killing them. They get to get rid of Brand while getting two assets.
Why Memphis does it?
They get Monta Ellis. They already offered us Thabeet and Mayo for him and told us the offer is still on the table. Ellis is from Mississippi and they want the hometown appeal.
Why the Warriors do it?
Jefferson gives us the scorer in the post that we have needed for decades.
