BRK Taurean Prince 2yrs-$29mil and pick #19
LAL Danny Green 1yr-$15mil and pick #29
PHI Josh Richardson(?) 2yrs-$22mil and pick #23

(?) I'm skeptical Philly would just unload a player as useful as JRich into our TPE and they certainly wouldn't throw a pick in on top of it. I'm sure Horford is the guy they want to move but I don't see how our TPE can help them accomplish that.
(*) Similarly, I don't think Boston wants to unload Smart but if they did they certainly wouldn't give us a pick to do it. Apparently they want to save money by selling their picks for cash. Maybe they can make enough money that way and keep Smart. I'm guessing they keep Smart, use pick 16 and sell 27 and 30.
Vlade is an idiot for saddling a Sacramento based franchise with the unwieldy contracts of Barnes and Hield. I don't see how we can help him unload either or why we would want to.
I'm leaning toward a year of James Johnson mainly for the pick although doing anything to help Minny out doesn't appeal to me at all.
