3 way trade with Houston, 76ers, and Portland. This trade worked in the ESPN trade machine yesterday but today the tool isn't showing contract years or dollar amounts. Portland gets: Jeremy Lin and Terrence Jones. 76ers get: Freeland, D. Wright, and T-Rob. They also get a future 1st round draft pick from Houston and a future 1st round pick from Portland. Houston: Does not get anything back in the trade except clearing about 10 million dollars to be able to sign Chris Bosh to a max contract. Why Portland does this: Freeland and wright would be gone after next season anyway with very little chance of re-signing them. Jeremy Lin only has one year left and we could probably sign him to a Mid Level Exception if things worked out or we could let him walk. He would also be a very valuable expiring contract around the All-Star break next season. Terrence Jones is an upgrade at backup PF and brings scoring to our bench. His defense is still developing but he is very athletic. Jones has 2 years left on his contract with a very low dollar amount so it would hamper us from re-signing Aldridge and he would grow with our young core. Why 76ers do it: There have already been rumors of Jeremy Lin going to the 76ers along with a draft pick for nothing to create space to sign bosh. 76ers are in asset acquiring mode, why wouldn't they want two 1st rounders. If we sent them wright, T-rob, and Freeland that is the same salary as Lin and they all expire at the same time. We could sign Earl Watson for little to nothing and use our Bi-annual exception on a Small Forward. Why Houston does it: They desperately want Bosh. Jones will get hardly any playing time behind Bosh. They will also be at the salary cap so a first rounder next year might not make sense. We could sweeten the pot by sending them a future 2nd rounder if needed. What do you guys think?
