A few days ago someone mentioned the possibility of using Prokhorov's cash in order to swing a trade for Dwight. In this trade scenario the Nets would take on Gilbert Arenas and dump his contract under the amnesty clause. I realize that it is a bit premature to expect an amnesty clause, but pretty much all offseason talk, other than the draft hinges on the ultimate outcome the new CBA.
Let us assume that the new CBA does include an amnesty clause and a hard cap or something close to it. I was looking what teams may be looking to swing trades to unload overpaid veterans where the Nets could release the player and our more than rich owner could swallow the long term costs of a ridiculous contract. I looked at Detroit, is it possible that the Nets could trade Outlaw for a Ben Gordon and pick up a pick from Detroit? They could then subsequently drop Gordon instead of Outlaw, but it would save Detroit over 10 million dollars. Would the Nets take Gordon and the #8 pick for the #27 pick and drop Gordon and keep Outlaw?
What would Atlanta give up to take on Joe Johnson for Outlaw? It would be a ridiculous sum of money for Prokhorov and Atlanta doesn't have a first round pick this year. Would they do it for two seconds and an unprotected pick in the 2012 draft?
Other deals could be struck with Golden State for Lee or Chicago for Boozer which are less likely. But it would be an interesting way to use our money and cap space to acquire more resources. What do you guys think? Do you have any other ideas using this type of trade scenario?
