Looking at DaGame's NYK-ORL trade got me thinking.

ORL
Turkoglu, Battie, Nelson (18mil in 08, 38mil total)

NJN
Carter, Marcus Williams (16.5 mil in 08, 39 mil total assuming Williams 09 option is picked up)

ORL Standpoint
-Nelson is wearing out his stay, showing glimpses but never solidifying himself.
-Williams has great PG skills on the offensive end, why not give him a shot? Start him off slow by letting Arroyo get some minutes.
-Turkoglu and Lewis are basically the same player, there is no need for two of them
-Turkoglu has high trade value after a great season and postseason
-Carter may be expensive but he could be an impact player. Also resides in FLA
-Who will work better with Howard? Lewis, Turkoglu and Nelson or Lewis, Carter and Williams?

NJN Standpoint
-Salary flexibility for 2010
-No more pressure for Vince Carter to perform and justify his contract
-Turkoglu and Jefferson plays the same position, how will that work? Can Jefferson play SG? Maybe this sets up a second trade?
-Expensive but Nelson will make a great backup PG
-Williams will no longer pout on the bench but will Nelson be a distraction playing only 18 minutes?
-Can the veteran Battie teach a thing or two to Sean Williams and Josh Boone?
-This will be a hard one to sell to Nets fans

interesting concept but VC is better than Hedo and New Jersey already has Devon Harris why would they go out and get Jameer? I feel like they would be losing out alot in this trade

Yea this really doesnt change much for the Nets. The main reason is they get cap space for 2010. He has one foot out the door anyway if Brooklyn fans want to see Lebron. The question is what is the best deal you can get for him and when is the time to swing a deal?

The way I look at it, if VC plays well, you might win 5 more games a year for the next 2 years. If he plays poorly, the media is on his *** and that just plummets his value not to mention everyone knows Carter is on the trading block already.

Your right that talent wise the Nets definitely lose in this trade. Its the overall interest of the organization that needs to be considered though.
