Hello DBB's, its MFEbomb coming over from Canishoopus with a trade proposal that I thought presented value for all parties. Please vote whether you would accept a partciular incarnation of this possible trade or whether you would not complete any of these trade options:
To Minnesota: Andre Iguodala
To Philadelphia: #7 + Tayshaun Prince
To Detroit: Al Jefferson + one of several Options as listed below
For Philadelphia it allows them to commit to the Evan Turner era immediately and get another Top Draft Pick to invest in the frontcourt that would be at the same age as their Holliday, Turner, Young, Speights core. They also get a high quality immediate replacement in Tayshaun Prince that could be valuable up until the trading deadline or can be used just to clear salary. Good value for Iguoadala.
For Detroit it gives them a player to log major minutes in the frontcourt immediately in Al Jefferson and gives them a player that will be a lot more productive than any likely #7. They also get something additional in #23, Ramon Sessions, or payroll relief.
For Minnesota it gives us a veteran shooting guard with at least 3 seasons of team control in his prime. His skillset is a great fit with Rubio and with Rambis' hybrid triangle. Doing this gives the Wolves a ton of flexibility in the draft as Wes Johnson and Iguodala would compliment each other very nicely as wing players as Iguodala needs to be paired with a shooter.
I present several options in the Poll, because I think Detroit should get something additional than just Al Jefferson for Prince and #7. These option are the additional compensation beyond Al Jefferson that the Pistons would receive:
Option 1: #23 Pick
Option 2: Ramon Sessions for Chris Wilcox
Option 3: Ryan Gomes (Non-Guaranteed for 2010-11) for Chris Wilcox
Would you make any of the following trades with the Minnesota Timberwolves?
