Asinine Trade Thread (Ver.1, Ed.1)

Well, with the team 2-5 and looking like we almost expected, it's time for our first asinine trade thread of the year. Plenty of candidates abound, and there are several teams that could already be sellers even this early in the year. With those ideas in mind, I welcome all suggestions (more asinine the better) and will kick us off with a barnburner that has about as much chance of happening as George Maloof running for Mayor of Sacramento. Here goes:

Deal One:

Kings trade SG Tyreke Evans and SF James Johnson to Detroit Pistons for SF Tayshaun Prince, PF Kris Middleton, and a pick.

Why? Pistons get younger and add to their monstrous expiring contract pile this offseason. Their starting 5- with Maggette coming back, gets a boost by adding Stuckey back to the PG role, where he was much freer and content. Their depth gets a boost as well by having both Knight and Bynum on the bench at PG, and they get a nice piece they can use in their more possession-geared offense. Kings get a true starting SF for the next two years and a veteran to help bring this team into a more professional class.

Deal Two:

Kings trade GF Francisco Garcia, SF Travis Outlaw, and PG Isaiah Thomas to TOR for PG Jose Calderon and SF Dominic McGuire.

Why? Toronto is desperate to part company with Calderon. That considered, their price is lower than normal and he represents a hefty expiring (10.1m) they can use. Our ability to send them expiring money (6.1m) makes us a competitive trade partner, and the perk of adding to their PG depth with Thomas behind Lowry is a nice fit. Outlaw is nothing more than filler but a nice rotation player for their thin SF line. Kings get a starting PG that is a nice perimeter threat and flank passer, helping us really control the offensive flow better for Cousins and Thornton.

Those two far-fetched deals considered, our lineup becomes:

C: Cousins/Hayes

PF: Thompson/Robinson/Middleton

SF: Prince/McGuire/Honeycutt

PG: Calderon/Brooks/Fredette

SG: Thornton/Salmons

Let the games begin....
