If I'm LA, I'd pull the trigger on a deal for Corey Brewer and assorted expiring contracts, provided there's some other value there. If Denver can give up, say, Brewer, Chandler, and McGee, they should do it. The key is finding a third team that would give up decent guys on expirings for McGee and Chandler.
How about this one between Denver, LA, and BK? http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=bzakuk6
That trade you mentioned would put Denver approximately 7 million dollars over the tax threshold next year. The tax penalty for that is more than 11 million dollars. Denver openly admits that they will never pay the tax.
So no go.
What if they include some longer contracts (like Wilson and/or Dre) instead of Mozgov?
