Trade idea: can we get in on Brandon Roy?


I saw Woj reporting about the fact that the Wolves were trying to move Brandon Roy. Apparently, they offered the Nuggets Roy and a future first for Mozgov - and were turned down on it. Seeing how we also need a big man, maybe we can work something out with both teams:

Nuggets get Roy, future 1st round pick from Bulls, future 1st round pick from Wolves

Wolves get Hamilton, Quincy Miller

Bulls get Mozgov

I think we all know that the org will do whatever it takes to go down the luxury tax (thus, the Boozer for Bargs deal). I would much rather have something like this: we let Rip go for a competent bug man backup. The only downfall is that Mozgov is a RFA, but maybe we can convince Mozgov to resign at 3 million a year.

Nuggets have to pay Roy the remainder of the year: for that, they get two picks. Plus, they let Quincy Miller go, who wasn't getting any burn on Denver's already deep roster.

Wolves get a similar contract in Hamilton compared to Roy, with the difference that at least Rip can play 20 minutes a game. They basically exchange their pick for Miller, who helps their depth at the wings. Plus, they might sell this to Kevin Love as an attempt to improve the team.

It isn't great or anything, but given the mindset of the Front Office, isn't this one of the best (or least worst?) trades that we can do?
