Another Trade Scenario...

The Josh Smith experiment has had nearly half the season to develop chemistry and make it work. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened. The team has underachieved thus far and despite this two game winning streak, in which the team has sort of come together and played pretty well...for 3 quarters, it just is working. So, it is time for management to shake things up a little bit. One player that I personally admire and think should be a target is Chandler Parsons. Here are his stats for the 2013-2014 season:

Season G MP FG FGA FG% 3P 3PA 3P% 2P 2PA 2P% FT FTA FT% ORB DRB TRB AST STL BLK TOV PTS

Don't really see this happening, but, in honor of MLK Jr. day coming on Monday, I have a dream!

The Trade: http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=mdwvwph

Why this theoretically works...

For Boston: According to Chad Ford in a recent ESPN insider article, Boston is planning to shop Rondo once he comes back because "the chance that he's the Celtics' cornerstone moving forward look slim." If they can get some younger talent (i.e. Lin and Asik) I think there is a good chance they pull the trigger.

For Houston: Why would you pass up the chance replace Lin with a former All-Star? I know getting Josh Smith doesn't seem like a huge gain, but this will allow Smoove to transition back to his original position, where in the past has has played far better. I know they are giving up Parsons who is having a tremendous season so far, but he could command a contract upwards from $8 million per year and with D12, Harden, Asik, and Lin making at least that this year they might not be able to afford him.

For Detroit: WE GET RID OF JOSH SMITH and also acquire a player in Parsons who, like i said, is having a tremendous year so far and would really be able to open up the paint for Moose and Drummond.

*Future draft picks may have to be given to certain teams to accept*

What do you all think about this possible trade and how realistic it is?
