Memphis Trade Idea

Portland waives Charles Smith, then trades Theo to Memphis for Lorenzen Wright and Jake Tsakalidis.

WHY: Theo and Lorenzen are essentially both the same injury-prone centers that come off the bench to play defense and block shots. The difference between the two is that Wright has a shorter, expiring contract. This deal is worth it for that alone. Jake Tsakalidis makes pennies and is just a throw in to make salaries work, although he is another big body in case of emergencies/injuries. Memphis gets an upgrade at C, seeing as Ratliff (once healthy) is a better player than Wright, for their playoff run.
