A way to dump Outlaw's contract


I have been racking my brain on how this team can improve.  I think it's a foregone conclusion on this site, that Outlaw's contract is HORRIBLE and hard to move.  It is a cap killing contract for years to come.  Looking at different posts, and the needs of this team, I thought of one thing, who on the Nets is really untouchable?  For the right price and talent, I say no one except Deron (because you will never get the right price and talent this off-season for him). So here we go..

Brook Lopez and Travis Outlaw for Gerald Wallace and Portland's 2011 draft pick.

I know I know, Brook Lopez????? Are you out of your mind?

Yeah, probably.  But look at Portland.  They already know Outlaw, and they need a reliable C.  They have no clue how Oden is going to come back.  Nets get another star who can play at the 3.  It's a loss at C, but It's the only viable way I think to get a team to take Outlaw.  If Portland is that in love with Batum, they can have Aldridge play his natural position at PF and Brook at C.  And, they are a western team.  I like this idea than trying to trade him to say Atlanta.

Nets not only get Wallace, but also another draft pick for this years draft.  

I think the Nets can fill the C role by going after Deandre Jordan or Sam Dalembert.  Jordan would be ideal.

With 2 first round picks, Proky cash, and Dwill and Wallace, Nets can be a lot closer to their goals.  If they get Jordan, he can still be used as a trade for Howard later.  

In the end, I think this trade works best for both Portland and the Nets.  

DWill/Famar/Gaines

Morrow/Draft Pick

Wallace/James

Hump/Draft Pick

Jordan/Petro

If Nets can get Petro gone, and find value for Farmar, they can still make some moves to bolster the bench with veterans.
