OK, I guess that it is. However, this has a possibility of going down, and this is a very even trade, although it may tilt in Golden State's favor just a bit too much.
I tried this on Trade Machine, and salary-wise it works, but the link doesn't work.
Here it is:
I know that Azubuike is injured, but he's an expiring, and I'm sure we could find some value for that at the deadline. Morrow has been struggling a bit, but when he's on he is a 3-point genius, and Turiaf is a true post banger who will be back around Christmas from injury. If this is too much in GS's favor (Smith is a really good player), then I guess we could have them send us a first-rounder because we'd take on another 2 million in salary including the luxury tax (at the rate they are going, they'll be drafting pretty high). Azubuike is out for the season with the same injury that Greg Oden has, but since 'Buike had his in mid-November, he may be back in the playoffs.
My trade turns a somewhat inconsistent future star and a useless bench warmer for a 3-point specialist and a guy who can play center on a fastpaced team but also hold his own in the post (he's around 255 lbs I think), and the first-rounder livens things up.
Update: After reading some of your comments, I realized that we could sup Azubuike and the draft pick for Anthony Randolph, who, as hvino said, is unpopular with Dubs. Or, we could still get the Top 8 draft pick, but then I'm not sure of the GS management would do that.
Is this trade worth it (J.R. Smith, Johan Petro for Morrow, Turiaf, Azubuike, and an unprotected first round draft pick?
