Trade idea ...

I know, I know, I'm a little sick of trade proposals myself, but I can't stop thinking about them, and I have nobody to bounce them off of but you guys (and my wife, but she doesn't care).

How about: Zach and Jack to Philly for Andre Miller, Kevin Ollie, and the #12 pick? We could likely get Jeff Green at #12, and Miller is a great distributing PG. Ollie's contract expires after this coming season. We could also try to acquire another front line player in the 2nd round like Marc Gasol or Glen Davis. Our lineup would look like this:

Oden/Joel/(Gasol-Davis)
Aldridge/Outlaw/Raef
Green/Ime/Martell/Outlaw
Roy/Jones
Miller/Sergio/Dickau

I like Jack as a player and don't necessarily want to see him traded, but I kind of feel like he and Sergio are in the same boat as Randolph and Aldridge. Clearly one is the up and comer, and do we really want to keep both around until things get ugly? And I feel like Sergio could more easily accept a veteran coming in at the position than Jack could. Sergio is still not ready to take over, whereas Jack may feel betrayed a bit.

Acquiring Miller would give us solid, veteran PG play and better prepare us for the playoffs. Further, as he ages he will naturally make way for Sergio. I would also advocate drafting Jamaal Tatum deep in the 2nd round (he may even go undrafted). He would be a solid bench contributor once Sergio becomes the starter.

The real key here is picking up Green (or another small forward). But I feel like Green is more of the "role player" type, and would be a great fit if we could get him. Chances are few to get these guys, as the only teams that I feel are likely to give up their pick for Zach are Chicago at #9, Atlanta at #11, and Philly at #12.

Perhaps we just want to try our luck with Oden and Randolph, though, and let Jarrett continue to develop. Any thoughts?
