Let's help the Rockets.
The Knicks need to trade Melo. So.....let's be facilitators. The only way the Rox they can get him is to cut the salaries of Lin and Asik. So, we trade Green and Bogans to the Knicks, Lin to the Knicks, Melo to the Rox and Asik to BOS.
THEN - we "help" PHI. They want Wiggins. They want to get the #1 pick. They've offered CLE Young and the #3. How about we offer #6 for Young, #10 and #39? PHI offers 3 and 6 to CLE for #1?
So, we get Young and Asik. Now at 10 we can take Gordon, Saric or Nurcic
At 17, we can take LaVine or Warren. Then, at 39 we can fill in the gaps. Patric Young, Russ Smith or Jabari Brown might be good here.
Rondo, Bradley, Young, Sully and Asik
SMith, Lavine, Wallace, Oly, Nurcic/Anthony
