Lakers get:

George Hill

Danny Granger

 

Clippers get:

Pau Gasol

 

Hornets get:

DeAndre Jordan

Jamal Crawford

 

Pacers get:

Eric Gordon

Steve Nash

 

Lakers improve while still being set up well for the 2014 FA class. In fact, Hill would be a nice player to have since the FA class doesn't have a good PG in it anyway.

 

The Clippers get a low-post option in Gasol, which would help out the team. He can make FTs too, so you don't have to worry about hack-a-bad FT shooter. It was rumored that they wanted to give up something similar for KG. Pau isn't as good of a player, but he's younger and has an expiring contract(which would help them re-sign Bledsoe depending on how much less Pau makes in his next contract).

 

The Hornets need help defensively. They are 28th in defensive efficiency. DeAndre would help protect the rim. They are rumored to want to get rid of Gordon too. Jamal Crawford would give them a nice stop-gap scorer until Rivers develops.

 

The Pacers need help offensively. They have been linked to Gordon in the past. Nash might be a good fit with the Pacers. They can cover him up on defense and could use his shooting. The Pacers also need a play-maker.

I would say no, Hill still has like 3 years and $30 million left on his deal. We would also have to extend Granger as well right?

I'd look at the rockets right now. They'll have a lot of cap space so they can absorb Pau's bloated contract. And because its for only one season there's little risk for them. They can still keep their cap flexibility. Maybe we could pry away Robinson from them.

I Wish!! And Danny Granger wont be anywhere near the Max on his next contract. We would still have to find another legit 7 footer

Why would the Lakers have to extend Granger? He becomes a FA during the 2014 offseason, when they want contracts to expire. That's a big reason why I have him in my last 2 trade ideas.

You're right, my mistake. I though he was a FA this offseason. Hill's contract still kind of kills it for me though.

His contract would basically replace Nash's contract on the payroll. It's a year longer, but Nash's contract still goes into 2014-2015. So, it wouldn't make a difference on that end.

 

For him, it's not a bad contract. And, he's still likely to be a good player at the end of his contract.

Why not just George Hill for Steve Nash.

 

In case, we keep both Pau and Howard and go with a more inside-out game (hopefully the Triangle and hopefully without MDA) i think George Hill might be a better fit than Nash. He is more of a two-way player and he can play both guard positions.

 

For the Pacers this might be a good deal as well. With Paul George becoming a free agent pretty soon, they basically have a 1-2 year window to make enough noise in the east for George to stay. What they lack at this point isn't defense, but offense and that is what Steve Nash can bring. They also have enough cap-room to sign a good back-up PG and Nash's contract is up two years earlier than Hill's.

Actually I can see Grangier Amnestead during the offseason. Indiana doesn't need him. Paul George is the man now. I think we could get him cheap, As far as Hill. would YOU give up Hill for Nash?? Really???

Why would Indiana let their best player go? #2 Indiana can pay George more money than most other WINNING teams. #3 Indiana's about to win game 7 and go to the finals

Granger and Bargnani are probably getting amnestied this year.

Depending on how much Granger really has left coming off the year off I'd like to know it was a low risk move before signing him but yeah we could probably get him for cheap.
