I suppose you mean Al Jefferson' date=' if so what are you giving Minny to get him???[/quote']

What they want, cap space. You can actually trade a trade exception I believe.

The Charlotte Bobcats are close to sending Boris Diaw and possibly Tyson Chandler to the Toronto Raptors in a three-way deal including the Phoenix Suns that would acquire point guard Jose Calderon and at least one other player, a source from one of the three teams involved confirmed.

who do you think the other player will be?

You can. And while we'd have four solid starters in Calderon-Jackson-Wallace-Thomas, we'd still be weak at center. I don't think the Bobcats are done making moves yet.

The PF/C who was apart of the original deal who's name I can no longer remember.

quick breakdown for everyone

To PHX Turkoglu (9,800,000)

To TOR Diaw (9,000,000) + Barbosa (7,100,000) + Chandler (12,500,000)

To CHA: Calderon (9,000,000) + Jones ($992,680) + Evans (5,080,000)

* Jones cut saving CHA 7.5 million.

* TOR takes 4.6 million extra (DO NOT GO INTO TAX)

* CHA saves 7.5 once jones is cut (AVOIDING TAX)

This is what I am hearing from Raptors fans

This way we actually cut Dwayne Jones then go out and get a Center.

Right, that's why we trade the exception to the Wolves for Jefferson to play C. If we get it.

That doesn't equal up from what I am hearing.

Pardon my lack of knowledge of the Suns' and Raptors' rosters, but who the hell is Evans?

And we'd have a sleeper contender, IMO.

You've got Jones, the guy I was referring to, in your breakdown. And how about giving a source for what you're hearing?

It's reggie evans, and I have no idea, this is some crazy s*t. From what I am hearing frop the Raptors fans there organization doesn't want to have to use the exception.

Yeah Raps fans had to add Reggie Evans to make it work. I have no idea whats going on anymore all sorts of sh*t, someone just needs to come out and say what the damn trade is.

Reggie Evans is an undersized PF but a good rebounder.

The fact that he'd be coming back to us instead of the Raptors using their trade exception to acquire Chandler throws a massive wrench into the idea of us using a trade exception ourselves to get Jefferson.
