Today, when I log onto the Yahoo NBA page, this showed up:
Recently, most of us, saw this news:
So just minutes ago, I came up with this trade:
Rip Hamilton, DaJuan Summers, future 2nd round pick
Why would Detroit do it:
For the last 2 years, we've been lacking interior defense as well as interior scoring. The presence of Samuel Dalembert could help with the interior defense as well as rebounding. He's proven to be a good rebounder and defender during his time with the Sixers. Jason Thompson, I think was improving, but with DeMarcus Cousins being in the team, his minutes decreased from 31 to 20 this season. Given time, Thompson could be a pretty good inside scorer for us. Gerald Wallace has been one of my favorite players in the league. He defends, he hustles, rebounds, and drives to get to the bucket. Great athlete overall, and he's not afraid to get hurt.
Why would Sacramento do it:
From the article I've read today, I think they want to change their personel. Looking at their roster, I've noticed that they do not have any veteran leadership. Tayshaun Prince would provide quite a bit of that. Furthermore, this would free up their overload frontcourt; none of their bigs average over 30 min this season. This would allow Landry and Cousins to be full time starters, with Maxiell and Darnell Jackson subbing. Austin Daye has an upside that could help the Kings next season.
