A trade idea that involves yes, you know who


So I know this borders on taboo around here, but what do you guys think of a three-way trade that has Moose going to SA, Josh Smith to Minnesota, and Kawhi Leonard and Kevin Love coming to Detroit?

I consider Moose and Leonard kinda equal, with Moose getting an edge, because he's a big and has shown a little more so far. So maybe Detroit gets Leonard plus a sweetener. Love, if he's healthy (a negative evaluation of his health would be a deal breaker), is better than Smith, but is a poor defender and there have been rumors that Minny's not big on him. So maybe SA's sweetener goes to Minnesota and makes this work.

I'm not sure if this would work from Minny's and SA's point of view, but I'm pretty sure it's a good deal for Detroit - defensively, we lose a little but still have a good defensive team with Dre in the middle and Leonard and KCP on the perimeter. Rebounding wise,they're already good but this makes them the league's best. And offensively, we make a huge, huge leap ahead - four shooters (most of whom can slash, rebound and defend) around a great center, maybe even the league's best as soon as this year. It would be like Dwight's Orlando team that got to the finals except with better offense (adding the slashing element), more rebounders and more guys who can defend (Orlando was great with basically only Howard doing it).

What do you think? Would it work? Would you do it?

Also, let me say, I love Moose and I loved the big frontcourt idea (before the Smith signing). But if this move is possible (and again, assuming Kevin Love is healthy), I think it could make the Pistons a top 3 team in the East and a contender for many years to come.
