This is a trade the Nets should look into

The guy the Nets should look into acquiring this offseason: Andre Iguodala.

Wait, wait, hear me out.  I know his contract is terrible.  But he would bring toughness, defense, and a little of everything on the offensive end, passing, scoring.  But the most important one out of these is DEFENSE. There are some strong wings out there in the East (Pierce, James, Wade, Allen, Johnson, etc) and a good defender like Iggy would help us neutralize guys like that.  Plus we have no defense on a supposedly defensive oriented team.  

But the MAIN reason we should deal for Andre Iguodala:

We could get rid of Travis Outlaw.  Wait, hear me out again.  If we called Philly and offered them Outlaw, Morrow, James and the Laker pick, we'd have them at least listening.  We would get rid of Outlaw AND get a good player in return! Morrow is a valuable player, but not a big piece on a strong team.  He could be replaced rather cheaply, if not at the same level of shooting.  James is not that valuable right now, has the potential to be an okay role player.  And the Laker pick in all likelihood won't get us anything.

The Sixers seem desperate to get out from under Iggy's contract, to the point where they'd take back Outlaw to get rid of him, as long as we give moderate assets in return, which we are in this trade.  

This seems like a trade that could benefit the Nets, once you really think about it.  Iggy's contract is bad, no denying, but if we swap out outlaw, morrow, and james' approximately 12 million salaries, we only take an extra 1.5 cap hit for next year, which would still leave us with ~17MM in cap space, assuming same cap.  Overall, this seems like both a trade that could benefit the Nets, and also one that might be accepted by the other team.

Maybe this isn't the best trade, but if Philly was willing to take it, we'd have to at least consider.
