Moves Magic could/should try to make this summer

I made a list of players (Free agents - Movable but under contract -and - players who Otis needs to contact their teams about a trade possibility.) Let me know what you think, and please feel free to add any players or moves Otis should consider. No b.s. please.

First group:

Unrestricted FA’s this summer

Barea being the big name PG out there, should command good money this summer, so he is probably a long shot for O-town. After that, you can really snag some solid veteran big guy play here for a good price. I really like DeAndre Jordan, Kris Humphries,  and Kyrylo Fesenko, as well as Mike Dunleavy and Joel Pryzbilla for mid-range salary players.


*JJ Barea - DAL – FA

*Tyson Chandler - DAL - FA

*Caron Butler - DAL - FA

*Peja Stojakovic - DAL - FA

*Kenyon Martin - DEN - FA

*Tayshaun Prince – DET - FA

*Mike Dunleavy – IND - FA

*DeAndre Jordan – LAC - FA

*Zach Randolph – MEM - FA

*Shane Battier –MEM – FA

*Marc Gasol – MEM - FA

*Michael Redd – MIL – FA

*David West – NO - FA

*Kris Humphries – NJ – FA

*Joel Pryzbilla – POR - FA

*Kyrylo Fesenko – UTA - FA

*Andre Kirilenko – UTA - FA


The next group is:


Under Contract but Disgruntled or Team could want change

This group is something of a make your offer and see if their team is in. I think all of these players would be moved if the right offer is presented. Here is what I think could be included for a possible trade for each player too.


OJ Mayo – MEM – 6mil thru 12 (QO for 13) (mayo plus maybe battier For a Redick, bass package)

Brandon Jennings – MIL – 3mil thru 13 (Jennings/Ilyasova/goooden For Nelson, Bass)

Raymond Felton – DEN – 7.5mil thru 12 (Felton/mozgov or koufos for Nelson, orton package)

Josh Smith - ATL - 13mil thru 13 (Smith/Teague for Nelson/Bass)

Lamar Odom – LAL – 8.5 mil thru 13 (team option) (Odom for Bass package)

Monta Ellis - G.S. – 11mil thru 14 (Ellis, Udoh for Nelson & Redick)
