From my early view of free agency, I believe that these teams are currently working together on a large 3 team deal. Since I have a limited understanding of capspace and the FA process, I created this FanPost to gauge the possibility of this happening.
New Orleans wants:
Here's how I see it going down but I don't exactly see how to match contracts (if it's even possible).
Roy Hibbert in a S&T.
Use capspace and Shawne Williams' contract to make it happen.
Eric Gordon in a S&T.
Trade Paul George, Darren Collison, Shawne Williams (or other contracts) and use capspace to make it happen.
Sign Kaman in FA.
Paul George, Darren Collison, and the expiring contract of Shawne Williams.
Why these teams do this?
Portland wants Hibbert without losing their cornerstones. This is the best way to make it happen with the Pacers likely to match Hibbert's contract.
Indiana realizes their championship window with Granger and West and add the Indiana superstar Gordon with the ageing Kaman in a last attempt to make it to the ECF.
NOLA knew what they took in Austin Rivers and it wasn't a PG. They need cheap, young talent, to improve their nucleus without taking away from their capspace for future FAs or draft pick signings. By moving Darren Collison to PG, Austin Rivers to SG, Paul George to SF, Anthony Davis to PF, and Gustavo Ayon to C they have a team they can build with and will still get a great pick in the draft next year along with keeping a ton of capspace for the future.
What does Blazersedge think? Does this seem realistic? Is it possible? Have I got too caught up in FA?
