Lazy Saturday trade


Since we don't have much to do these day but speculate on the draft, I thought I'd throw together a trade combining the two most persistent rumors, the GS trade and the Philly one:

Also relevant but not shown in this is that Minnesota gets the 2, and Philly gets the 6 and the 23.

Why the Wolves do it:  They get to completely remake their team into a running squad.  Randolph is a good uptempo defender and rebounder, and Azubuike can really shoot it from long range.  You add in Turner + Cousins/Favors + any of the mid-range guys (Whiteside, Henry, Bradley, George), and you've got a solid set of proven and/or cheap youngsters to build yourself around.  Additionally, you now have a size advantage (or at least a size not disadvantage) 4 of the 5 positions.

Why the Warriors do it:  They get the two best players in the deal, and they shed the Maggette deal, which is going to be a shaky one at the end.

Why the 76ers does it:  They get rid of a bunch of money, and still save face with a lottery pick.  Gomes can be cut, saving on the luxury tax.  Hollins contract ends next year, which is preferable to paying for four more years of Brand to Philly (they could also do something like send Hollins and the 23 to a team with cap room to save more money).

Anyway, this is thrown together in about five minutes, but yes? No?
