Memphis:
Conely / Lin
Allen / ???
Morris / Qpon
Zbo / D.Arthur
Gasol / Asik

Memphis rids themselves of Gays escalating salary in exchange for depth. They add a good three point shooter in Morris who can play off Conely and great depth at the center and pg position. This should make them a better team and save them money in the short and long term, not to mention the Lin marketing bonus.

Lakers
Nash / Black
Kobe / Meeks
Gay / MWP
Jamison / Hill
Gasol / Sacre

Lakers balance out their roster and add pieces more in sync with Dantoni's style of ball. Gasol can move back into the post, while the 1-4 are all "small ball" esque perimeter guys. LAL also avoids the risk of losing Howard for nothing in the offseason, assuming they continue struggling.

Houston
Beverly / Douglas
Harden / Delfino
Parsons / Delfino
Patterson / Jones
Howard / Smith

Houston takes the risk on Howard by betting he won't leave for less dollars, while still maintaining max money to add a THIRD major piece (Milsap, Smith, Paul, etc.) in the offseason.

GOD awful. Houston turns Jeremy Lin, Marcus Morris, and Omer Asik into Dwight Howard? Just lock this thread already.

Bad for Memphis with two 8 plus mil a year PGs

Not sure where I stand on Howard. I just think he is a child time will if he can be happy anywhere

So in two years, instead of paying Gay $19M, they have to pay Lin and Asik (who will be backups on Memphis) over $30M? I don't think that's what they have in mind.

Don't think the Lakers consider this either.

LAL would rather dare Dwight to walk than take on Gay.
For MEM it doesn't make much sense to waste that much cap space on two bench players.
Rockets make out great here of course...

Ya this makes ABSOLUTELY NO sense for anyone but us


And I don't want Howard (I'd take him at this price though hahahaha)


(Was gonna comment on Lin and Asik only counting 8.3 against the cap, then realized they would still be being paid 30 mill [BUT ONLY WITH 8.3 EACH GOING AGAINST THE CAP] by the owners so that would still be money taken from the owners who are not looking to spend alot of money. I assume especially not on backups


Edit- should note it is good to read a reverse ghostx trade (lakers get screwed) every once in a while, though
