Who says no to this trade?




http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=87vrlvr

Minnesota gets: Demar Derozan and Austin Daye (more like takes Austin Daye)

Toronto gets: Ben Gordon and Wes Johnson

Detroit gets: Antony Randolph, Amir Johnson and Luke Ridnour

Why Minnesota does it: get a + starting SG without trading a single member of their core players. Derozan gives them athleticism and perimeter shot creativeness.

Why Detroit does it: gets our of Ben Gordon's bad contract, take a flier on Randolph who's on an expiring deal, get's a legit backup PG (which they technically don't have, only PG's are Stucky and Knight) which maybe allows Stucky to move to natural SG, and get some salary relief and replenish their depth at SG with Barbosa (expiring deal). They essentially will move around 10 million off their books in the off-season with this deal. On a team not going to the playoffs and building around Knight/Monroe this could be appealing.

Why Toronto does it: They get a similar producing wing to Derozan, and get a flier on Wes Johnson, creating supposedly a little more depth on the wing. Now that I look at the trade this is maybe the one team who doesn't do it....so possibly throwing in the Utah pick to Toronto to get it done.

This would be a huge win for us as we really don't give up any of our core assets (still can move Williams in a Dudely/Gortat deal to round the roster out) and we get a solid SG that will help us contend this year and for the future. Derozan isn't great, but at the price we'd pay for him he'd be a huge value.
