DEN
Melo, Billups, Nene and JR for Jameer, Gortat, Crawford, Favors, TWill, Humphries and 2 1Rd Picks

ATL
Marvin, JSmith, Crawford and Bibby for Harris, Nene, JR, Prince, Maxiell and Wilcox

NJN
Harris, Favors, T-Will, Humphries and 2 1Rd Picks for Melo and Bibby

DET
Prince, Maxiell and Wilcox for JSmith and Marvin

ORL
Jameer and Gortat for Billups


DEN

Jameer/Lawson/Johnson
TWill/Crawford/Afflalo
Harrington
KMart/Favors/Maxiell
Gortat/Birdman

+: Karl thrilled to have floor leader in Jameer; Jameer-Lawson-TWill-Favors-Gortat a nice nucleus; financial flexibility in 2011; Gortat has potential to average double-double
-: 3-4 yrs. away fr. competing unless they find a steal next offseason

ATL

Harris/Teague
JJ/JR
Prince/Evans
Horford/Maxiell/Wilcox/Thomas
Nene/Zaza

+: Prince and Nene offer overall defensive upgrade; move Horford to PF; Harris could flourish as a passer w/this crop of shooters; JJ can dial back the mins.
-: impending SF gap (no money for Prince next summer) but this team appears destined for multiple early playoff exits anyway; honestly sad to see what happened w/JR yet he’s playing in the final yr. of his deal so we’ll assume he’s a chemistry non-factor—he might even embrace ATL and the change

NJN

Bibby/Farmar
Morrow
Melo/Outlaw/Jones
Murphy/Humphries
Lopez/Petro

+: Melo can deliver a championship; Bibby on an ugly contract and increasingly injury-prone but also a fearless shooter, could take pressure off Melo in the 4th
-: EC is so stacked (esp. w/ORL and ATL trades here) that it may take yrs. before they even see the Conf finals

DET

Stuckey/Bynum
Gordon/Rip
Marvin/Daye
JSmith/Jerebko/Villanueva/Wilcox
Wallace/Monroe

+: backcourt is deep, skilled, incredibly versatile; w/legit Rip move this team could surprise in the playoffs
-: when does Villanueva play? probably packaged w/Rip; beyond Rip and Wallace, a squad in need of some veteran leadership; Gordon will have to lose streaky tag to live up to the contract—he’ll be carrying DET on certain nights

ORL

Billups/Duhon
Vince/Reddick
Pietrus
Rashard/Bass
Dwight

+: he isn’t CP3 but tell Billups he can’t lead Dwight and ORL to a title
-: Jameer’s game is just behind a Rose or Rondo now but he might develop into a player like Billups w/time
