1. Heat dump bosh for dwight howard..
2.lakers go after chris paul, next time he is a free agent..
3. Celts, regain perkins.. I still dont know what they were thinking..
they could also dump allen and go after vince carter..
4. Jets just dump sanchez, and solidify tebow..
5. Jags dump horrendous gabbert, and get an upgrade with sanchez..
6. Dolphins dump their GM who only picks up bums like garrard and chad..
I can see why the dolphins make you cry hootie and the blowfish..
7. Red sox regain bronson arroyo..
i know he can pitch better than some of these bums..
8. Marlins need a power bat.. Matt kemp LA DODGERS slugger would do..
heck i would let dan uggla come back too..
9. Yankees, i can just see chapman in pinstripes for some reason..
marianno is gone.. They need to start thinkin about the future.
10. Chelsea, go after neymar.. Torres is not a top striker..
11. Arsenal.. Please get a decent goalie.. Robert green will do noicely..
12. Man chitty, steal persie and knockout arsenal as contenders..

You said realistic. None of yours seem very realistic. Especially Kemp to the Marlins or Howard to the Heat...
To make it simple, I'm gonna list three moves in each of four of the five major sports. I'm not going to include football, because the off-season is pretty much over and you wont see any more moves. I'm gonna try to keep mine realistic.
1 - Neymar to FC Porto
2 - Dzagoev to Liverpool
3 - Robin Van Persie to Real Madrid
1 - Parise to the Blues
2 - Suter to the Wings
3 - Rick Nash to the Leafs
1 - Dempster to the Red Sox
2 - Morneau to the Blue Jays
3 - Garza to the Tigers
1 - Nash to the Knicks
2 - Deron Williams to the Mavs
3 - Rudy Gay to the Raptors

Neymar is too good of a player to play for a second tier league, like portugal..
Plus a big club, like chelsea or REAL will outbid a little club like porto everytime..
Neymar is ultra talented, he's been in the brazilian national squad since he was 19 for freakin sake..
While Persi to REAL is an attractive prospect.. I just dont see REAL taking the big risk on Persie..
The risk being, that last season, was one of Persie's few healthy seasons..
The only club, I could see taking such a huge risk, is Man Chitty..
This club knows that if Arsenal is firing on all cylinders next year, then they could potentially challenge for the title..
It makes perfect sense to try and cripple a rival..
All Chitty has to do is dump either one of these headcases, Balotelli or Tevez, and they will make room for the illustrious striker we call van persie..
I will talk about baseball and basketball in my next argument..

Neymar only recently turned 20 years old. He does not need to go to a big pressure team like Real or Chelsea, but can rather transition to Europe. Plus, he only knows how to speak Portuguese, so going to FC Porto would be a good transition team.
I would not call FC Porto a second tier team, even though they maybe in a second tier league. They have won two Champions League, including as recent as 2004. They are in the same boat as Bayern Munich (albeit have had more recent success), Ajax, and every Ligue team.
FC Porto is no small team. They are a public company, and offer public bonds. They also own many other profitable companies, such as an insurance company. I'm sure can afford Neymar.
Chelsea also wont dump Torres so soon after paying so much, they are stuck with him. Plus Neymar is too small for England right now.
Real can take risks, they are loaded. They desperately need a striker, and must get one in the transfer market to keep separation between them and Barcelona.
No way does he stay in England. Arsenal will do whatever it takes to persuade him to accept an international transfer.
Real will offer the most, and give Persie the best situation for him.

Ok, i know little about hockey..
i will take your word..
I dont like nash to knicks, sorry..
linsanity was the biggest story in the regular season..
I would be heartbroken if they dumped him..
i would rather nash goes to miami..
Jason kidd put the mavs over the hump..
while nash would have less impact, he is old and would be fine with lesser role..
Bronson arroyo going to the sox would be a bigger deal than dempsey..
bring back the guy who helped put you on the map..
we stabbed him in the back when we traded him 8years ago..
why not reward him for his years of faithful service..
Morneau to the blue jays?
yanks would never allow this!

Jason Kidd did great the year they won. But he is too old. He used all he had left in the tank that year. He is 39 now and averaged under 8 points, and under 7 assists per game in only 48 games. He could only play 28 minutes a game.
The Mavs have the cash and cap space to get one of the games best PG. Williams is only 28, and can lead the Mavs to be contenders year after year, and be the future of the Mavs.
Nash is way better than Lin, who had a good 10 or so games. You can't compare Lin to Nash.
What is your deal with Arroyo? He is not very good, and why would the Reds be sellers anyways? The Reds are in a playoff race, and need all the help (even if he sucks) they can get. Plus Arroyo has another $12 million on his deal after this year, do the Sox wanna pick that up for a crappy guy?
Dempster on the other hand will be moved, and is a rental since he is a free agent after this season. Plus he is good.
And what do the Yankees have to do with the Jays and Twins? Do they have veto power over trades in the AL now? Twins wanna dump his salary, and Jays need a 1B. Plus, it is a little more realistic than say Kemp to the Marlins...
