Gordon - Howard - Odom Trade

Sign and trade ideas involving Gordon are running wild, so I thought I would add my thoughts.  


Ben Gordon     to Dallas

Andre Nocioni to Dallas

Drew Gooden  to Dallas          


Josh Howard   to Lakers

Eddie Jones     to Lakers

Jason Terry     to Chicago


Lamar Odom   to Chicago


Over at Mavs Moneyball there was some discussion of a similar trade earlier this year (Howard + Terry for  Nocioni +  Gordon) .  With the public relations trouble that Josh Howard is causing the Mavs might be more inclined to moving him.  They replace Terry with a younger similar player, Nocioni serves as a serviceable replacement for Howard, plus Gooden adds some toughness to  the Mavs front line.

The Bulls basically replace Gordon’s skills and Nocioni’s contract with Terry.  Odom gives the Bulls a post option at the 4, a person who can fill Noce’s minutes at 3, and should aid the D’Antoni style attack with his passing.

With Bynum returning from injury, Gasol returns to the 4, and Odom would slide to the 3 where he is less effective.  Howard is a more effective defensive option for a team loaded with offensive talent, and a better player at the 3.  Eddie Jones is just salary filler.

I would even offer the option to switch 1st round draft picks next year to entice Dallas to deal.  

The Financials work on the trade machine when I used Hinrich’s contract.  While I know BYC rules are complicated with sign and trade players, both Dallas and Chicago have trade exceptions in the $5 million range to make the trade go through.
