Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson, Okur on the trading block?

Now that the draft is over, unlike a lot of you guys, I'm not too upset with the Knight pick. I believe in Knight; if you have a 4.3 GPA in high school, that says something about your character and your work ethic. If Knight cares about basketball, he will work his butt off to be successful (as he did with his classes). Scouts did say he has a high ceiling as a player, so I expect him to improve rather quickly. He wasn't all that good in the beginning of the year, but he progressively improve game by game and he makes the big plays when his team needs it. Even a guy like Chauncey Billups needed a few year and get it together, I'd like to give him a chance.

Now then, a lot of us including myself know that we have a major logjam with the guards. Taking a look at a few teams, Utah and Cleveland have a major logjam with their big men. Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson, Mehmet Okur, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter all want and need significant minutes next season just like Rodney Stuckey, Ben Gordon, Brandon Knight, Rip Hamilton, and Will Bynum. Anderson Verajao, Tristan Thompson, Antawn Jamison, and JJ Hickson all want and need significant minutes next season just like our guards. Those two teams could be our trading partners in the perceivable future. I believe in Joe Dumar's ability in trades. I'm not very good coming up with trade ideas, maybe Ben Gordon + Daye + a pick for Verajao + Ramon Sessions (since Irving and Davis are the on the team) + throw-ins? This give Irving and a few good shooters while we get some inside help in Verajao and an insurance in Sessions. For Utah, maybe something like Ben Gordon + Stuckey (after tendered) and/or Daye for Paul Millsap + Raja Bell? Again, they need shooting guards and wings while we need inside presence in Millsap and a solid vet in Bell. Rip Hamilton + Charlie V + Daye for Elton Brand + Andre Nocioni?

I don't know how you guys think, so comment on this and let's talk about whether this plan could work or I'm just being stupid
