Griz send Navarro to Heat in sign-and-trade for Marcus Banks (3 years and $13 million left)
Griz send Kyle Lowry OR Hakim Warrick and #28 to Minnesota for Mark Madsen (2 years and $5.5 million remaining), #31, and #34 (Minnesota is said to be interested in packaging both second-rounders for a late first-rounder because of roster space concerns.)
Or, if Navarro is too complicated and the Heat insist on getting back Mike Miller:
Griz send Miller to Heat for Banks and Daequan Cook
Scenario 1 is simple and, speaking personally, I think the Wolves would be well served to take Warrick and run, but I don't think it will be enough for the Heat. Here's a slight variation on my original idea:
To the Heat:
- Mike Miller
- 3rd pick (OJ Mayo)
- 28th pick
To the Grizz:
- 2nd pick (Michael Beasley)
- Antoine Walker (expiring contract)
- Mark Blount (2 years left)
- 2nd round picks
To the Wolves:
- 5th pick (Kevin Love/Danilo Gallinari)
- Jason Collins
- Hakim Warrick
- Rights to Marc Gasol (with guarantee for him coming over for a MLE)
- No trade restrictions on the pick owed by the Heat
I think that's about the best possible deal for all teams involved. I'm pretty happy with this one. The Wolves trade one expiring contract for another while moving down and grabbing 3 decent frontcourt players (Warrick, Gasol, and Love); the Grizz take on a bad contract in Blount, but it's only for 2 years and they get the most talented player in the draft along with 2 high 2nd rounders; and the Heat get their guy in Mayo along with a solid perimeter player in Miller.
What say you?
BTW: The Flyer's Grizz Blog also has a nice rundown of Love's Memphis workout.
PS: I think the Wolves would be bat-s#$t insane to trade Beasley if they have the opportunity to draft him. Here's the lineup if the trade goes down with Gallinari as the pick:
I guess Kyle Lowry instead of Warrick would make a bit more sense if Gallinari is the pick. Here's the subbed Lowry/Galliinari pickup:
Here's the Love lineup:
I like the Love lineup myself, although the Lowry/Gallinari one isn't too far behind.
