For the Charlotte Bobcats, Michael Jordan moves Gerald Wallace -- who, despite being a two-way marvel, appears to be at odds with Larry Brown -- for a offensive-minded power forward in Al Harrington. Harrington, who's reportedly on the outs in Oakland due to numerous tiffs with Don Nelson, would be a nice fit in the Queen City next to up-'n'-coming cornerman Jared Dudley. Dudley's growth as a player is currently being stunted somewhat by Wallace, for they have superfluous skill sets. Similarly, Harrington is blocking Brandan Wright and Anthony Randolph with Golden State.

For the Golden State Warriors, Harrington will most likely be dealt sooner rather than later; the reasoning there is explained in the above paragraph. Aside from that, however, the Warriors need help at point guard. With Monta Ellis presently suspended due to his reckless injury this past off-season -- as well as Marcus Williams having not panned out in training camp and pre-season -- the Warriors are stuck with two young, undersized combo guards (i.e., C.J. Watson & DeMarcus Nelson) at the helm. As a result, Robert Rowell and/or Chris Mullin may consider obtaining the heavily criticized, yet still useful Jamaal Tinsley -- along with swapping an out-'n'-out bust in Williams for a project in Jerryd Bayless -- to patch-up the team's hole at point guard.

For the Indiana Pacers, Larry Bird would probably do just about anything to dump Tinsley. If that means moving the productive, albeit currently injured Rasho Nesterovic for the dying carcass that is Raef LaFrentz's career -- even though in return for that swap would come Travis Outlaw, who'd play reserve minutes behind starting forwards Troy Murphy and Danny Granger -- then so be it.

For the Portland Trail Blazers, Wallace is a two-way small forward who'd fill a major gap that presently exists on the roster. While Nicolas Batum has a lot of potential, he should nevertheless be just a defensive stopper off of the bench at this point in his career—especially for a franchise that's considered to be a playoff contender. Also, no matter the fact that many fan[atic]s have high hopes for Martell Webster once he returns from injury, it's undeniable that the man who once reneged on his commitment to the University of Washington hasn't yet proven himself to be productive starter in the NBA. Wallace, however, is a tested performer who has shown the ability to dominate on both ends of the court.

Nesterovic, moreover, is the type of solid veteran pivotman who the Blazers have desperately needed the past two seasons behind Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla. Lastly, Williams is just filler -- for he's just a third-string point guard with a cheap expiring contract -- who's included to balance the trade from a talent, roster, and financial standpoint.

Well, that's that.
