Trade Salmons

John Salmons had a terrific season. Dude averaged 19.2 PPG from Dec. 1st to Jan 15th filling in for Martin.  Also, the last five games of the season he put up 19.6 PPG, 8.4 RPG, 3.4 APG and 1.4 SPG.  But that is why the Kings should trade him now.  Buy low, sell high right? 

He'll have a real hard time duplicating this past season as long as Artest, Martin, and Garcia are all healthy.  Plus, when is Douby going to get minutes behind Martin to prove his worth?

There are a few teams with both the need for a 3 and the cap-space to make it happen:

Milwaukee - Bobby Simmons? Desmond Mason?  The Bucks are looking to start fresh with a new GM and new head coach.  Why not send them Salmons for Charlie Villanueva and a future draft pick?

Toronto - They wanted him before and he would have come in handy against the Magic during the playoffs when Bargnani and Kapono disappeared.  Could they package Shelden Williams and a 2nd Rounder with Salmons for TJ Ford and Pick #17?

Orlando - Keith Bogans was tremendous for them this year but Salmons would provide them with another inside-outside slasher somewhat like Turkoglu and Lewis.  The Magic have little to offer however outside of draft picks.  Maybe Brian Cook and a future 1st Rounder for Salmons?

Just an idea I wanted to throw out there.  I like John but it makes too much sense with all of the wing players on the roster and the possibility of adding another via the draft, i.e. Joe Alexander.  However, I wouldn't trade him for anything less than stellar either.
