Teams should be willing to get in the trade to acquire Humph, one of the best rebounders in the league, has averaged a double-double two years in a row.
So wait a minute, correct me if I'm wrong but in that trade scenario, the Nets would keep both Wallace & Johnson?
So the starting lineup would be
PG - Deron
SG - Joe
SF - Wallace
PF - FA (Maybe Kenyon Martin)
C - Dwight
Well I'll be damned. If that trade happens, looks like the Celtics 5 year streak of winning the Atlantic is over.
They'd at least keep Johnson. I'm not sure how the Cap would work out if the get Deron, Unless he takes way less money he'll take up a huge chunk of their cap space with that max contract and Johnson has that ridiculous contract. would they even have enough money to take on Dwight?
San francisco 49ers- San Francisco Giants-Sacramento Kings
So it'd be a lot like the Miami Heat. iirc a lot of their guys outside of the Big 3 are on small contracts.
Battier, Chalmers, Haslem, Mike Miller and I think Joel Anthony are the only ones on the team outside of the Big 3 that aren't on minimum contracts or rookie contracts.
With the Nets, however, if they would have Deron, Dwight, Wallace and Johnson all under contract EVERYONE else on the team would have to be one of three things: On a rookie contract, on a vet's minimum contract, or a D-Leaguer.
The Raptors and Landry Fields have agreed to a 3 year, 20 mil offer sheet, the Knicks can still match but I doubt they will. The Suns wanted to sign-and-trade Nash to the Knicks for Fields but with Toronto doing this, it pretty much kills the deal. Smart move by Colangelo to give the Raps a better shot at Nash.
