Grade the Trade - Detroit Rock City

The boys over at Detroit Bad Boys are talking about adding a PG.  They also have some bad salaries to shed and a lottery pick.  I've posted the following trade on their site and I'll report the results after we get enough results.

(Salaries are for next season but I had to use this year's salaries in ESPN's trade machine to make sure the salaries work.  Contract length represents years signed beyond this one - so 1/year means signed through next season.)

To Detroit:

PF/C  Al Jefferson  $13M 3/years

SF  Ryan Gomes  $4.2M  3/years (also has team option this year, so could be cut immediately for salary cap savings)

PG  Jonny Flynn  $3.2M 3/years

 

To Minnesota:

SF  Tayshaun Prince  $11.1M  1/year

PF  Charlie Villanueva  $7.0M  4/years

2010 1st Round Pick  (~$3M)

 

Quick analysis - Detroit sheds $21M in salary while adding $16.2M (or $20.4 if Gomes is kept) - so Detroit saves $1M or $5M.  On the talent side, AlJeff replaces CV and Flynn provides potential PG future.  Gomes is properly priced in my opinion, but may be a better fit elsewhere - but could split minutes with Daye at SF if need be.

Minnesota picks up another lottery pick, takes on CV's albatross contract with no role for him (buried on depth chart behind Love and Pekovic), clears up Minny's PF and team leader glut by removing AlJeff, and get a good expiring player at a need position in Prince at SF.
