    Sports Illustrated: Pelicans were about to trade for Reggie Jackson

    Also, the Pels would've traded Asik, Ajinca, and our 2018 first rounder to Phoenix.

    Bradley would make much more sense for the Pels. this wasn't about "ooh!!! we get a 4th PG. Or...2nd half PG" so much as it was well, "we get a player with some talent, and dump dead contracts. The dumping contracts had to be a significant plus here."

    You can't blame Demps for trying to make this happen. People need to eat.
    If you Jimmer it, they will come.

    Phoenix would have received Detroit's 2019 first-round pick, New Orleans' 2018 first-round pick, Alexis Ajinca and Omer Asik.

    Why would Phoenix not take this?!

    They did.
    It was the Pels that pulled out due to the second trade they had planned to get another big.

    Darn that makes sense too.

    Maybe Philly with an Okafor trade that fell through?

    First Trade:

    Pistons - Bledsoe
    Pel's - Jackson
    Sun's - Asik, Ajinca, Pel's 2018 1st, Pistons 2019 1st.

    Second Trade:

    Philly - Moore
    Pel's - Okafor and Luwawu

    Pel's dump Smith to remain under the Tax line.

    Rondo/Nelson/Jackson
    Holiday/Jackson/Clark/Allen
    Hill/Luwawu/Miller
    Davis/Cunningham/Diallo
    Cousins/Okafor

    Not really a fan beyond this season.
    We have to pay Cousins and then wont have any money to pay Okafor, Clark or Rondo.

    That deal makes a lot of sense. Im sure Philly also wanted a 2nd to make it work. That would have meant we went into next season with long term contracts on AD, Jrue, Hill, and Cousins assuming he resigns.

    That would have given us a lot of flexibility moving forward. I probably would have did it.

    Ok so you got this from McNamara's twitter, but to be clear, he presented that 2nd trade as an example of one that made sense to him, not one that was actually discussed.

    Well in this scenario you would have to add Reggie Jackson's long term contract going into next season, too. Which would pretty much put the team right at the lux tax line or very close to it, with just those 5.

    That's true, didn't think of him.

    But at least that would basically be our entire starting lineup under contracts long term. Could use exceptions to fill in the roster. Plus we'd have 3 rookies, a guard a wing, and a big that you hope develops.

    How does that give us any flexibility for any bench?
    Would you use all Vets?

    Cousins - 30??
    Jrue - 26.2
    AD - 25.4
    Jackson - 17.1M
    Hill - 12.3
    Diallo - 1.5
    Luwawu - 1.5
    Jackson - 1.4

    That's 116M and we don't have any bench as the rookies wont contrubute.
    I like it, but I don't love it.

    Better than seeing Ajinca and Asik also....I guess.

    I made that comment forgetting about Jackson. I'm sort of indifferent to it remembering Jackson is on the books too.

    It would however mean our entire starting lineup was locked in to deals. I don't think it's a bad lineup either.

    As far as how to add player, we would have exceptions that could add 1 or 2. Also, next season none of those guys would be rookies. Diallo would be 3 years, Jackson 2, and Luwawu 2 or 3 as well. At some point they should contribute.

    Where did Moore for Oakafor and Luwawu come from?

    Clark's turning out to be fairly average, Luwawu offers way more on a rookie deal

    It's too bad Deng has such a ridiculous contract:

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...play-elsewhere


    If it was just somewhere within reach of the Asik contract, maybe something you could somewhat consider, gambling he has something left, or at least more left than Dante ever had. But at $18mil per year, for 3 more years....well, the first line of The Gambler's chorus applies (you gotta know when to hold 'em).

    Who gave out the contracts to Mozgov and Deng last year from the Lakers?
