Here's a fun idea. What is the best team you can make trading away the Cavs ENTIRE ROSTER using the ESPN trade machine? Let's assume old school NBA Live rules where the trade doesn't need to make sense for the other team - salaries just need to match. The roster has to make sense in an NBA game. Not like a team that is all centers or something.
Here's what I came up with:
AV and Walton for Lebron
Kyrie for Cousins
Gibson and CJ Miles for Wall and Beal
Speights for Anthony Davis
TT, Waiters, and Gee for Harden, Parsons, and Greg Smith
Casspi for Favors
Ellington and Zeller for Lillard and Hickson
Shelby for Klay Thompson
Livingston for Andre Drummond
And I don't know... Kevin Jones for Barbosa
Starting lineup is:
Wall, Harden, Lebron, Davis, Cousins
Bench rotation is:
Lillard, Thompson, Parsons, Favors, Drummond
The rest are there just to shine.
Can anyone do better? I tried to get the most bang for my buck by trading for young players on value-sized contracts.
