My idea to expand the rumored Melo deal


Wow, I never do this, but couldn't help myself:

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=4c6zb9s 

We start with the rumored 9-player deal.  Now we also have heard the following, either during this cycle or earlier in the season during the last Melo to Nets go around:

1) Denver doesn't want to keep Harris
2) Denver covets Batum
3) Denver doesn't want to keep Murphy for tax reasons
4) Denver would look to move Nene if they are blowing it up
5) Cleveland is willing to absorb your expiring deal for a pick or two

So here's where we come in. We start with the 5 for 4 swap being talked about today.  Then:

Denver sends out Murphy, Nene, Harris and one of those 4 first rounders, and gets back Miller, Przybilla, and Batum This saves them $15 million off the cap number this year, and Joel and Andre both come off the books next year (or they keep Miller another year if they want)

Cleveland takes on Murphy and gets a draft pick and either Armon (or insert Babbit, Eliot, etc instead)

New Jersey gets the original package of Denver players

Portland sends out Miller, Przybilla, Batum, and the rookie (and maybe a pick if need be), but gets back both Harris and Nene.

Who says no?

(if you like, you can try to expand it to include some other pieces that were rumored before - Rudy, Morrow, Outlaw, etc)
