With Jason Thompson and Spencer Hawes playing well for the Kings as of late, Moore looks like he'll be hitting the bench later this year. The Nets have been shopping sophomore Sean Williams, who got 8 blocks on the Kings last season in NJ. He got buried on the bench behind Josh Boone, Yi Jianlian, Brook Lopez, Eduardo Najera and Ryan Anderson. He also saw his minutes drop after the All-Star Break when Jason Kidd was traded to the Mavs. So here's an idea.
Trade Moore back to the Nets with Shelden Williams for Sean Williams and Stromile Swift. Sean is on a pretty cheap rookie contract and has a $1.4 million team option for 2010. He's only been given 25 minutes in 3 games. Swift's in his last year with $6.2 million left on his contract and hasn't stepped onto the court because of a back injury. Moore has a $2 million buyout option for next year that the Nets could excercise and his contract expires next season. Shelden's contract expires this season.
Sean Williams (07-08): 5.6 PPG, 53.8% FG, 4.4 RPG, 1.5 BPG, 17.5 MPG
Stromile Swift (NJ 07-08): 5 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 0.9 BPG
Mikki Moore (08-09): 6.9 PPG, 59% FG, 3.6 RPG, 23 MPG
Shelden Williams (08-09): 3.9 PG, 3.3 RPG, 11.7 MPG
I think it works for both teams. The Kings get some extra cap space when Swift's contract expires and get another young big on a cheap contract. Both Moore and Williams can be let go after this season. What do you think?
Should the Kings trade Mikki Moore and Shelden Williams for the Nets' Sean Williams and Stromile Swift?
