RJ for Outlaw?


I was recently reading a 5-on-5 article on espn.com (5-on-5 is five questions answered by five basketball writers). One of the subjects were, "Use the trade machine to make a deal that should happen." Devin Kharpertian from Nets Are Scorching suggested a  Travis Outlaw for Richard Jefferson trade. This trade would be in my opinion a great trade for the Nets. Unfortunately I believe we would have to give up picks for this trade to go through. One thing on our side is that Spurs fans hate RJ much like we hate Outlaw. Another plus is that RJ's deal ends a year earlier, but he makes about a 1.5 million more than Outlaw and San Antonio could use that savings to get under the luxury tax like Devin said. The reasons for the deal are interesting. While RJ is nowhere near the player he once was he's still better than Outlaw, and his contract expires sooner, plus he had his best years with the Nets and was always a fan-favorite. Like I said earlier we would probably have to give up more maybe cash or a second round pick (I think the heat second round pick is the only one we have for awhile) but it might be worth it. The link to the article is below.
