Three team trade idea (Bulls, Blazers, Heat)

Bulls trade: Deng, Taj, draft Picks

Bulls receive: LMA, Batum

Blazers trade: LMA, Batum, Claver (or any other salary cap filler)

Blazers receive: Bosh, Deng

Heat trade: Bosh

Receive: Taj, Claver (or any other salary cap filler), Bulls (Charlotte) pick/picks,

Why the Bulls do it: No sign at the moment of a contract extension for Deng. Batum is a downgrade but a nice replacement. Taj for LMA is a no brainer. Boozer could then be shipped off to any taker or be a very expensive 6th man in hope of trading his expiring contract the following year.

Why the blazers do it: LMA wants out and replacing him with Bosh is pretty equal value. Deng is an upgrade over Batum. Unless the Blazers plan on blowing up the team in the summer, this is probably as good an offer they will get.

Why the Heat do it: The Heat probably wouldn't do this trade unless management wanted to save money. Bosh is over-rated but he is still a top 5-10 PF in the league. This would save the Heat over $11m a year plus the cap penalty hit. It also would not go down too favorably with Lebron and Wade but tossing in some first round draft picks might sweeten the deal and convince Lebron to resign.
