If You're Looking for a New SG, keep your eyes on Houston

I say this not only because of Courtney Lee, but because they also have a trade piece available that might lend to us being an enabler for a three team deal.  Aaron Brooks is gone in my opinion, even though management has said the opposite.  I don't expect them to say anything other than that but I don't expect for Brooks to be on that team after the deadline. 

Now I assume, that if they would trade Courtney Lee for a serviceable big, that they are looking for a more than serviceable big + a 1st for Brooks.  Now, look at the teams that are reportedly interested in Brooks; New York, Portland, Minnesota, Memphis, and Sacramento.  Depending on how bad they want Brooks, we could definitely get our SG upgrade, whether it's Lee or another SG on the block, and could get away without including Asik.

Out of those 5 teams listed our best bet is getting Sacramento involved.  They have a surplus of bigs, and the right mix of contracts to make either a big deal or small deal work.  In fact, they could probably pull the deal without us, but they don't have the 1st the Rockets would be looking for or would need our 1st to make sure they get an asset back for one of their young bigs.  At least I doubt they are giving up a lottery pick for Brooks.  Sacramento wants to try to get rid of Garcia and/or Udrih's contracts for expirings.  So we get on the phone with Petrie, who Gar Paxsdorf seems cool with, and tell him "Look we can help you get your PG, if you can help us out"... It just seems so damn simple to me. 

Your small deal looks something like this, with a 1st likely heading in Sacramento's direction.

A larger deal might look like this, with our 1st going to Houston
