As we know, Melo has mentioned that he would consider the Nets as one of his destinations for the long term. Also there has been rumors that the Nets were going to make a move for CP3 in the past, but talks have seemed to die down...FOR NOW! We also know how it has been rumored that CP3 and Melo have talked about the possibility of playing together in New York at Melo's wedding. Well, I believe that the Nets can allow that to happen since they're going to be moving to Brooklyn (Melo and his wife's hometown) in 2 years. Here's some trade thoughts that I've came up with that could have both Melo and CP3 playing on the Nets for next season:
Nets trade Favors (centerpiece), Williams, Humphries and 2 future draft picks for Melo
The Nets can go into the 2010-11 season with a temporary lineup of Lopez, Murphy, Melo, Morrow and Harris. Once the trade deadline starts to approach, the Nets can then pull off a deal to lure CP3 from the Hornets. Here's what I believe can land them CP3:
Nets trade Harris, Outlaw and maybe a future draft pick for CP3. Come 2nd half of next season, the Nets could have a lineup of Lopez, Murphy, Melo, Morrow and CP3. That lineup would make the Nets a strong contender in the East alongside the Magic, Heat and Celtics. As for their bench, they can always find available pieces to fill up the bench like the Heat did when they signed players to low deals. What do you guys thinks? If you have better (and logical) proposals, feel free to share.
