Tinkering with the Trade Machine. Tell me your thoughts on these completely hypothetical trades. Another observation I made is that Atlanta has the most valuable trade pieces. If Austin Powers were a GM he'd agree they could be some real "swingers" in the trade market! Yeaaa baby! lol

1) http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=3b672co
Chris Paul, Paul Milsapp & Bogut to HAWKS. Bucks get Horford and Pachulia, JAZZ get a scorer in Marvin Williams(they have still have post depth w/ Favors & Jefferson)

2) http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=3coqukb
Howard and Paul become HAWKSs, Joe Johnson a HORNET & MAGIC get Josh Smith

3) http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=3psd5l2 Chris Paul, Ron Artest and Emeka Okafor become SPURS. Tony Parker goes to HORNETS(New Orleans also gets the benefit of dumping Okafor's salary & a premiere PG in Parker) LAKERS gets DaJuan Blair to add grittiness and rebounding.

the WARRIORS (who are shopping Monta ellis) & (chicago's)keith bogans to memphis. The grizzlies who are also shopping send him to GOLDEN STATE to team up w/ david lee & stephen curry. CHICAGO gets a 2-guard they sorely need in OJ Mayo(who was nearly dealt at the deadline). Stephen Curry won't have the same chemistry issues with Rudy Gay b/c he won't need to handle the ball like Ellis and Mayo would thrive alongside DRose

The most ambitious one: (ignore the Pistons they do nothing here) The Magic dump Gilbert Arena's salary on Boston and Superman (follows in the reverse of Shaq's path) & puts on his Bill Russell costume. Magic take on Ray Allen and KG's contracts but they have opt out clauses in 2012.

This one is pretty out there but somehow works for EVERYONE INVOLVED. Deron Williams has never seemed likely to stay in NJ past 2012. NJ GETS Horford and Joe Johnson who are locked in for a couple years. PORTLAND gets breakout guard Jeff Teague, Brook Lopez and JOSH SMITH. HAWKS get Deron Williams, GERALD WALLACE, TRAVIS OUTLAW & LaMarcus Aldridge

DWIGHT HOWARD AND CHRIS PAUL become HAWKS. HAWKS ONLY GIVE UP JOE JOHNSON, MARVIN WILLIAMS AND JOSH SMITH
