Utah gets Wilcox, Kwame, and a second round pick then Detroit gets Millsap, Fesenko, and some trade exception.
Utah does it because they save 1.8 mil in tax money this year and 6.2 next year assuming wilcox either opts out or is bought out.
Detroit does it because I think Millsap and Villaneuva could work really well as a tandem at the 4 position.
Philly gets Tayshaun then Detroit gets Dalembert and a second rounder
Philly does it to add a veteran... ESPN Rumors page had 76ers as possibly interested in Tay so..
Detroit does it to add a tall athletic guy in the middle that I feel would pair really well with Millsap.
Oklahoma City gets Rip then Detroit gets Harden and Etan Thomas
OKC does it because they're relying on too many young guys. Rip would add veteran leadership and stability.
Detroit does it to take away the logjam at SG. Even though Harden also plays the 2, there won't be any griping between him and Ben Gordon. Which reminds me.. I'd rather keep Rip and trade Gordon, but someone mentioned the possibility of a locker room rift involving Hamilton and I see what they're sayin.
We would look like:
Combine this with a high draft pick and the MLE this summer, and we could be a decent team next year.
