James Jones is our guy in this trade. He fills the need of a shooter we desperately need and serve as the breather to Rudy. He can also play some spot minutes at the two spot. Hassan Whiteside and Patrick Patterson fill in the size void creating with Hamed and Hasheem leaving. Whiteside is going to be our new project for the next 4 years and what's good is that his payroll isn't heavy at less than a million per year. He's going to be the first guy off the bench to back up Gasol as a legitimate center. I like his upside, because he's younger and that he's a better offensive player than Thabeet ever was, and only in his first year in college. Jordan Hill is an upgrade over Demarre Carroll and Hill is more of a bigger player to play at the 4 spot while still playing the 3 spot to back up Rudy as compared to Carroll. Patterson hasn't been playing good at all, because he's never played anyway. Behind Arthur and Randolph, he most likely wouldn't crack the rotation at all, but he's an intriguing talent to be had.

 

Miami adds Courtney Lee and Pooh Jeter to their inconsistent backcourt. Courtney Lee is a young gun, but has been in a lot of ups and downs, starting for Orlando in the Finals to playing for the lowly Nets. He is a multi-role player Miami needs off the bench. He's developing into a defensive stopper for the Houston Rockets. He has played PG in the Houston training camp, but it's his ability to score on a catch-and-shoot that will fit perfectly with Miami trying to spread the floor. He'll most likely back-up the 2 and 3 spots, but he can play the 1 alongside Wade and LeBron if needed. Pooh Jeter has been getting it done with limited minutes. 5.3 ppg and 3 apg with just 12.7 mpg is better than Mario Chalmers' stats with him playing more minutes. Carlos Arroyo's stats isn't even better when you adjust the minutes. Of course Arroyo and Chalmers understand the system more, but Jeter has been from Europe too, and he has transitioned fairly good into the NBA. Haddadi might be a steal. In the few times he has played, he has showed he could get it done. There is a big need for legitimate 7-footers in Miami and he would most likely benefit with more minutes and with playing with the Miami Thrice.

 

Houston gets its PF/C of the future in Jason Thompson as Yao Ming gets often injured and might look to retire anytime soon. Houston will try its best finding gold in prospects Dexter Pittman and Hasheem Thabeet. Sam Young can score and will thrive in Adelman's system.

 

Sacramento gives the starter's key to Demarcus Cousins by parting with Jason Thompson. They also look to shore up on draft picks. Terrence Williams will be a valuable asset. Simply looking at their lineup, he's going to cause a logjam at the three. But his talent stretches across three positions. He may start at the 2, with Evans moving back to the 1. With Jamal Magloire, Jared Jeffries and Demarre Carroll, they aren't getting much. But they are a combined $8.5 million in expiring contracts, and which also means they might play harder.
