Miami Trade Idea

It was reported on Real GM this morning that Miami was interested in upgrading their defense, possibly with a guy like Portland's Ruben Patterson.

So...

Portland trades Ruben, Sergei Monia and a pick to Miami for James Posey, Jason Kapono and Earl Barron. Charles Smith would have to be waived for this to work.

This is a good trade for both sides because the Heat get their much-needed defensive upgrade in Ruben Patterson plus a SG prospect with decent upside that also plays decent defense and a pick (either our second or Detroit's first). They already have enough scorers, but their in need of defense so this works out perfectly. It's a good trade for us for several reasons. First, we get a 6'8" SG that is a deadly outside threat. Posey's outside shooting would complement the inside games of Z-Bo and Darius nicely. We also finally get an NBA ready SG that can come in, produce and not becoem a defensive liability. Posey also has only one more year remaining on his contract, so we don't have to worry about being tied up when Webster is ready to start. Kapono is a sweet-shooting SF that's a decent role player but not much more. With Dixon moving to the bench, he would become redundant and could be traded for a big man with a small contract, such as Pheonix's second year center, Pat Burke. Earl Barron is simply filler, but is another second yearbig man that makes pennies and could be waived as needed or kept around in case of injuries.

Successful ScenarioDue to Portland, Denver, New York and Orlando being over the cap, the 25% trade rule is invoked. Portland, Denver, New York and Orlando had to be no more than 125% plus $100,000 of the salary given out for the trade to be accepted, which did happen here. This trade satisfies the provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
