Don't really like it for the Suns. You have to remember they are taking in Perkins. Maybe:

Gortat for Perkins, Lamb, TOR 1st, DAL 1st, AND PJ3
June 2013 GMAT

Nuggets (work in progress):

PG: Jose Calderon, Khallif Wyatt
SG: Dwyane Wade, Quincy Miller
SF: Iggy, Jordan Hamilton, Corey Brewer
PF: Zach Randolph, Ed Davis, Brittney Griner
Cc: Joakim Noah, Kosta Koufos

Trades with the Thunder are somwhat unwieldy. Perkins has to be in for salary matching purposes, but Perkins is negative value to an outgoing team, but not really negative value to OKC because OKC can just amnesty him if need be. So the Thunder don't really get anything by dumping Perkins that justifies sending out extra value, but other teams can't justify taking him on without extra value.

they'd still be on the hook for paying him almost $30mil to do nothing. Amnesty is a LAST RESORT for any team, so saying "they can just amnesty him if they want" becomes a non factor.

but the value that needs to be accompanied in his trade will decide whether okc does the trade, stay put or decide to trade/amnesty him another season when he's closer to expiring.

You aren't tanking properly unless you trade for Perkins.

Gortat is a good center. An upgrade over Perkins. But the ask is way too much.
