I'm pretty sure I'll get a lot of criticism on this, but discussions are always good. So this is what I came up with:
NO Hornets get:
Rip Hamilton (11.3M) and Chris Wilcox (3M)
Detroit Pistons get:
For the Hornets:
1. NO saves another 2 million dollars.
2. Chris Paul gets a great back court partner in Hamilton.
3. Get rid of Posey's contract. He doesn't fit in the Hornets.
For the Pistons
1. This can allow Monroe to play the 4, his natural position.
2. Emeka Okafor is a tough nose player who can defend and rebound.
3. James Posey is an important player in this trade. Not only he's a good spot up shooter, but he's also pretty good defender.
I would hand the start SF spot to Jerebko, and let Posey be the backup. Yes, I'm saying Tayshaun should be dealt afterwards. For whom? I'd like to see something like Tayshaun Prince for Jose Calderon from the Raptors. He's an underated PG in this league. He runs plays pretty darn efficient. Him, Stuckey, Gordon and White will share minutes in the 1 and 2 spot.
Will Bynum or Stuckey will be dealt. However, I'd much rather prefer Bynum to be dealt. I would think a sign and trade. Along with Jason Maxiell, I'd trade them to the Magic for Marcin Gortat. That will give us plenty of size down low. That can also free up Magic's Brandon Bass and Ryan Anderson, they should get better playing time than last season. They get Maxiell whose a bruiser in the paint, and Will Bynum can share good minutes with Nelson at the point guard spot.
So after everything, I'd set up my rotation like this:
SG: Stuckey, Gordon
SF: Jerebko, Posey
PF: Monroe, Charlie V
C: Okafor, Gortat
We have good passers in Calderon, Stuckey (not a good passing point guard, but certainly pretty good for a shooting guard) and Monroe to shooters like Gordon, Charlie, Posey and even Calderon, and hustle players like Jerebko, Posey, Okafor, Gortat. This works in NBA live, but I'm not sure it would in real life. So comment, praises, criticisms, etc............feel free :)
