Deadline deal

The Timberwolves get Gordon, Chriss, Qi, Houston's 1st and a 2nd

Houston gets a super charged version of Ariza on d and a guy that limit what Harden and Paul have to do on offense during the regular season plus give them that third elite offensive player in the playoffs. You could really scale back what Paul has to do during the 2nd half of the regular season and try to get him to the playoffs healthy and rested. If that happens and Butler meshes well with the team, the Warriors might be in trouble.

The Timberwolves get a real player in Gordon and some young talent, if they know Butler is gone.

I like this idea, but I think the trade starting point would be Gordon, Chriss, 2 1st. But Houston would essentially have 120m tied up in 4 players if they resigned Butler.

I would love to see Curry v CP3, Klay v Harden, KD v Butler, Dray v Melo, Boogie v Capela over a 7 game series.

Yeah, I was debating wether it should be 2 1sts or a 1st and a 2nd. I think it all depends on wether teams think he’s likely to resign or not. If there’s a clear favorite it might have ish his value down.
