Pistons sign and trade Monroe (5yr starting at $12.5 million) to the Wizards for Otto Porter.

Wizards form the best 3-man big rotation in the league, each guy can get 32 minutes a night, and it will be great for the regular season since Nene is in and out of the line up all the time anyway. I would start Gortat and Monroe and bring Nene off the bench. Think of how the Lakers used to have Bynum/Gasol/Odom and got them all minutes.

Cap wise, along with Gortat's deal coming in and Porter's going out, this deal would put the Wiz right at the projected cap figure of $63 million. They could offer Ariza a deal starting at $8 or $9 million and be able to use their mid-level exception to sign another player without going over the projected tax line of $77 million.

Start Wall/Beal/Ariza/Monroe/Gortat with a bench of Nene/Webster/Miller/mid-level guy. Easily one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.



Pistons get something, a talented player still on a rookie deal. Plus, this would move Smith to the 4 and they already needed wing help, so Porter should see some consistent playing time which he never got last season due to injuries and two veterans infront of him.

You're joking about Detroit trading Monroe for Otto Porter though right?

If they choose not to pay Monroe, why not? Lebron James was once traded for 2 future first round picks.

Then trade him for a future 1st. Not Otto Porter.

Right, because he was going to sign in Miami regardless and it was the only way for him to get the 5 year deal he wanted. Not exactly the same thing.
