How About This Trade Idea?

Recommended Posts

http://www.espn.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=y9ntrj6g

Memphis receives: T J Warren, Elie Okobo, Ryan Anderson and the Suns first round draft pick (Top 8 protected this season, Top 6 protected next season, Unprotected in 2020)
Phoenix Receives: Mike Conley, JaMychal Green and Ivan Rabb

Why Does Phoenix Do It? The Suns get a mature leader at the point to pair with Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton to from a formidable big 3. Throw in Kelly Oubre and the Suns have four of the five starters they need to make a run in the next year or two. JaMychal Green would immediately become the starting PF over Dragen Bender too. 

Why Does Memphis Do It? It immediately lowers the Grizzlies cap concerns by over $6 million dollars allowing the team to sign Bruno Caboclo for the remainder of the season (the Suns are under the salary cap so they can accept the extra salaries without any problem). TJ Warren pairs well with Anderson, Temple, Casspi and Bruno on the wing. Okobo is a promising young PG to pair with Carter and the Grizzlies get back the pick they will lose to Boston.
