ok, so we trade lewis to the wiz for arenas. knowing a lockout will happen and owners will probably go for looking for ways to unload bad contracts...amnesty. so otis knew all along that this will happen and if they still had lewis, and they use it on him, they cant resign him. what does he do?(not to be confused with HEDO) he trades lewis, use the amnesty on arenas, resigns lewis to a cheaper contract since the wiz will most probably use it on him anyway. so we have the old crew back with a bit of cash. resign JRich. send him to new orleans with a few serviceable guys for CP3 and another bad contract if thats what it takes. not sure though for how long the contract of JRich would be and for how much for the trade to work.
just a thought...we all know that otis doesn't lay his cards down for everyone to see right? here are my thoughts - just my theory. jump in and feel free to comment!
based on our tradeable assets:
we lose jameer, bass and jrich and throw in anderson or QRich
and we get CP3, okafor or ariza
if those are the guys they want to part with...
