Mavs should add an stronger SG that can attack the rim and run plays as well by defending good.

Cavs:
-McRoberts

Mavs:
-Shumpert

For now Mavs would improve the backcourt.

Maybe Shumpert plays a great year or he is willing to step out for the next year. If not, Shumpert and Wes are similar Players, Wes may a bit more committed overall but next year he is older as has only 1y 17m left. So if Shumpert works or stays Mavs could trade Wes to a contender / good team that Need some SG/SF to free cap space. (Pelicans, Raptors, Pistons or LAC or OKC)

16 Oct 2017 09:00:35
That would be a good move for both teams.

16 Oct 2017 13:35:06
Shumpert has no value.

16 Oct 2017 14:15:21
Not a fan of it for the Cavs. Atleast until IT is back Shumpert looks to be in the rotation and after trading Jefferson, the Cavs would end up being pretty thin on the wing if someone missed time. Plus, the Cavs have 4 more traditional bigs on the roster and it looks like their plans is to only play them at the 5. I don't think Mcroberts would in the Cavs rotation and the chances he is even reasonably healthy this year are pretty slim.

16 Oct 2017 14:54:02
Supercollider, neither does Mcroberts. What's your point?

17 Oct 2017 04:43:09
Well rkenne, now that Melo's been dealt Super has to find someone new to pile on!

100% agreed rkenne.

11 Oct 2017 16:00:30
The Cavs get Asik and a top 12 protected 1st round pick

The Pelicans get Jefferson, Frye and Tavares.

The Cavs get a pick, take care of their roster problem, and shed over a million dollars helping their luxury tax situation

The Pelicans get to shed Asik's bad contract, which might be important if Cousins does resign since they would end up deep in the luxury tax. They end up with 3 players with no guaranteed money next year. They also get a reliable veteran wing in Jefferson and a guy in Frye who could play next to Davis or Cousins and spread the floor. The Pelicans need shooting and Frye can provide that at an elite level. While Davis and Cousins can make up for his deficiencies in other areas.

11 Oct 2017 19:05:02
Like it for both teams.

09 Oct 2017 18:46:13
Cavs get davis
Pelicans get thompson,frye,shumpert,jefferson, zizic,tavares, 1st bkn pick and 1st cavs pick

09 Oct 2017 19:30:13
How about this instead

Pelicans get Lebron Thomas
Cavs get Asik, Moore Hill 2018 Pelicans 1st.

09 Oct 2017 20:12:57
the cavs don’t have any combination of assets worth davis. the best package they could make would be it, love and bk pick, which still lacks the young talent to even make nola think twice. also they can’t trade both their 1sts.

04 Oct 2017 04:53:21
Utah Jazz trade: Derrick Favors, Alec Burks, and 2018 Utah Jazz first-round draft pick
Utah Jazz receive: Al Horford

In an attempt to compete for a playoff spot in the loaded Western Conference, the Jazz trade two semi-young, potential-filled players who really struggled last year while battling with injuries, along with a first-round pick, for a proven star-level player who would undoubtedly fit in very well alongside Rudy Gobert. Horlord is a player who can do a little bit of everything and has proven to be very consistent throughout his years in the league. Should Favors and Burks never return back to their 2015-16 form, this trade would turn out to be a steal for the Jazz.


Boston Celtics trade: Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Al Horford, Aron Baynes, Abdel Nader, 2018 Los Angeles Lakers first-round draft pick/2019 Sacramento Kings first-round draft pick, 2018 Boston Celtics first-round draft pick, and 2019 Memphis Grizzlies first-round draft pick
Boston Celtics receive: Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Alexis Ajinca and Tony Allen

Before I go any further, I feel compelled to mention that this trade would be contingent upon, at minimum, Cousins verbally agreeing to stay in Boston beyond 2018. With that being said, the Celtics are receiving the future of the NBA in 24-year-old Davis and another superstar in 27-year-old Cousins, so yes, they would have to give up an arm and a leg to pair those two alongside all-stars 25-year-old Kyrie Irving and 27-year-old Gordon Hayward. Wiping out their two young studs and most of their future assets (draft picks) would undoubtedly hurt Danny Ainge to the very core, but the "consolation prize" he would receive would be worth the hurt. Davis and Cousins would give him a 'Big Four' to probably pass the Cleveland Cavaliers as the best team in the Eastern Conference and challenge the older Golden State Warriors for the NBA championship for years to come. Ajinca and Allen would provide the team additional depth for the inevitable championship run the team would make.


New Orleans Pelicans trade: Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Alexis Ajinca, and Tony Allen
New Orleans Pelicans receive: Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Derrick Favors, Alec Burks, Aron Baynes, Abdel Nader, 2018 Los Angeles Lakers first-round draft pick/2019 Sacramento Kings first-round draft pick, 2018 Utah Jazz first-round draft pick, 2018 Boston Celtics first-round draft pick, and 2019 Memphis Grizzlies first-round draft pick

The Pelicans have been struggling, struggling, and struggling some more to build a competent team around Davis. Even with the addition of Cousins, the Pelicans struggled beyond the all-star break to compete at a playoff level. There is no better time to trade Davis than now, and no team with more to offer the Pelicans for the services of Davis and Cousins than the Celtics. The package the Pelicans would receive in this trade would be very hard to pass up. Tatum and Brown are both extremely young and overflowing with potential. Both can be all-stars in future if provided the appropriate opportunities. Favors was an above average starting power forward two seasons ago before struggling, due to injuries, this past season. Burks was in a similar situation, although he was never as talented as Favors. Any type of resurgence from either player (which is likely due to the fact that both should be recovered from their injuries following this offseason) would allow the Pelicans to either build around them or flip them for more younger prospects. Finally, the Pelicans would receive a slew of first-round draft picks around which they could build around. The Lakers/Kings draft pick could be a top five pick, either in 2018 or 2019, and should undoubtedly be in the top 10. The Jazz and Grizzlies picks should fall somewhere between the 10-20 range, but could be higher depending on how the two teams perform. Finally, the Celtics draft pick would probably fall somewhere in the 25-30 range upon the execution of this trade, where quality players still exist if scouted well. It would be hard for the Pelicans to receive a better offer for any combination of Davis and Cousins at any point over the upcoming seasons than this one.

04 Oct 2017 10:13:38
aside from NO moving davis and boogie together, nothing else is really outrageous about these trades. could work out in the long run for the pels if they draft right.

04 Oct 2017 10:34:11
i think i would prefer a version of this trade where boogie and one of brown/ tatum (i think i'd choose brown) stay put. i just can't see davis and boogie ever really thriving together especially alongside someone like kyrie who should be a primary scorer.

04 Oct 2017 13:09:05
Agree with donadamsky that trading for both would be kind of dumb since the experiment would have failed for NO already. I think they would be better off trying to keep Tatum or Brown. They need an another wing and guy who can turn in to an elite perimeter defender.

I also don't like this for Utah. They need a number one scoring option, but that isn't Horford. He would be a decent fit next at pf for them, but I'm not sure this even guarantees them a playoff spot. Horford is on a huge contract for 3 more years and by the end of it, he won't be worth the money. The Jazz are a fairly young team. I think they would be better off going through a mini rebuilding around Gobert or a complete rebuild.

This is a solid return for NO, but I'm still don't think they'll want to move Davis anytime in the near future.

04 Oct 2017 16:15:50
I can't imagine the Pelicans moving Davis without getting both Tatum and Brown back.

05 Oct 2017 16:55:46
Hilarious. The Pelicans have been "struggling" Boogie and A. D. have played a whopping 15 games together since last season. And half of those are Holiday yet all of you think New Orleans is going to dump A. D.? Let me help you guys out with this. You do NOT trade a once in a generation player for mediocre to average pieces. If so i might propose this trade


Celtics fans really have a knack for thinking the rest of the league owes them their Superstars

Pathetic trade idea.

07 Oct 2017 15:01:14
Dacman, that's four really good trade pieces (Brown, Tatum, La/ Sac and Memphis) and a few mediocre ones (Favors, Utah pick, Boston pick, Nader, and Burke) as well without having to take on much long term salary. I don't think NO should trade Davis anytime soon, but theoretically if they did, this would be a great haul. There isn't a team in the league that would be willing to give up more than that that has the pieces to do it.

27 Sep 2017 17:09:37
This is a long shot, but hear me out.

Cavs get Anthony Davis, Demarcus Cousins, and Omer Asik

Pelicans get Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Channing Frye, Brooklyn's first round pick, Cavs 2018 first round pick, Cavs 2020 first round pick, and Boston's second round pick

The Pelicans are at risk of losing Cousins in free agency, and if that happens they'll be at a big risk of losing Anthony Davis. In this trade the Pelicans move both of their stars for a coup of draft assets. Shedding Asik's ugly contract while adding Frye's expiring deal is also an incentive, and the team gets an all-star in Kevin Love who's under contract until 2020 to keep the fan base interested during their re-build.

The Cavs go all in on a championship run by assembling the greatest front court of all time. The Cavs sacrifice their future, but it'd be well worth it to add a generational talent like Davis and an elite center in Cousins. LeBron is almost guaranteed to finish his career in Cleveland if this goes down.

28 Sep 2017 10:45:14
i don’t think there’s a single thing the cavs could offer NO that would make them budge on AD.

28 Sep 2017 12:38:05
Cavs already traded 2019 1st, so they have to keep their 2018 and 2020 1sts.

28 Sep 2017 14:36:49
I heard you out, and it is an incredibly awful trade proposal .

28 Sep 2017 15:50:45
The Pels are in no danger of losing Davis, he has years left on his contract.

The only players the Cavs would have had to offer the Pels to possibly move AD are LBJ and Irving before his move to the C's.

26 Sep 2017 17:19:20
Cavs get cousins
Pelicans get Thompson osman Brooklyn 1st

Cavs get vucevic
Magic get shumpert Frye felder cavs 1st

Sign wade Ellis

Thomas rose Calderon
Smith wade Ellis
James korver Jefferson
Love crowder green
Cousins vucevic zizic

26 Sep 2017 18:12:56
Orlando passes even faster than the Pelicans do.

26 Sep 2017 19:18:56
The Vucevic offer seems short and if the Cavs wouldn't really need him. Especially if they had Cousins, who would play over 30 minutes a game in the playoffs.

Dacman, if they think Cousins is walking, what kind of offers do you think they are going to get? They could do worse than a young 3 and d player that could immediately play decent minutes for them, a young starting center, and a top 5 pick.

26 Sep 2017 22:11:41
Pelicans should consider this kind of offer if things don't go out as planned, I mean they've got Cousins for less.

25 Sep 2017 04:38:35
Crazy offseason so far let's add another move

ORL/CLE

ORL get BKN pick , Iman Shumpert & Channing Frye

CLE get ORL 1st round pick 2018 (top 7 protected , conditional if they retain the pick next year) & Nikola Vucevic

CLE get a very good big who can rotate with Love and Thompson while still getting a pick giving up BKN pick and removing salaries. ORL could be better than BKN, they get a higher pick and has the chance to get 2 lottery picks if their own falls from 1-7.

ORL

Pg Payton/Augustin/Mack
Sg Fournier/Simmons/Afflalo
Sf Ross/Shumpert/Hezonja
Pf Isaac/Gordon/Frye
Ce Biyombo/Speights

CLE

Pg Thomas/Rose/Calderon
Sg Smith/Korver
Sf James/Crowder/Jefferson
Pf Love/Green
Ce Thompson/Vucevic/Zizic

25 Sep 2017 04:55:57
Cleveland is not giving up the nets pick for Vucivic and a protected 1st. Not happening.

25 Sep 2017 10:34:27
Vucevic is not a bad player, but that trade is a non-starter. Shumpert and Frye might not even be rotation players in Orlando.

25 Sep 2017 23:34:56
Only if they panic and go all in, but i can't see Cleveland doing this.

21 Sep 2017 20:12:55
Knicks - Pelicans - Rockets

Knicks gets:
Hill
Asik
Ajinca
2018 1st Pelicans (Top 3 protected)
2020 1st Rockets (top 10 protected)

Pelicans gets:
Anderson
Ariza

Rockets gets:
Anthony
Kuzminskas
Future 2nd Pelicans

Knicks take on bad contracts while moving on from Melo. Getting two 1st rd picks will help their rebuild.

Pelicans move Hill that is injured, Asik and Ajinca that is just bad contracts for a shooter in Anderson and a starting SF in Ariza.

Rocket finally gets Melo and can now form their big 3. Kuzminskas can try to earn some bench minutes or he gets moves again at the deadline.

21 Sep 2017 22:30:10
All day garbage offer for ny.

22 Sep 2017 11:55:46
Maybe without the protections, but NY should keep Anthony in this case.

22 Sep 2017 14:18:58
Asik and Ajinca is too much garbage for the Knicks to take on just to move Melo and pick up a couple of mid to late first rounders.

19 Sep 2017 01:30:24
New Orleans-Indiana

New Orleans get : T.Young

Indiana get : A.Ajinca, E.Moore top 12 protected 1st rd pick

this gives Pelicans a solid back up for Boogie and AD while the Pacers gain a 1st and gives more playing time to their young bigs

Pelicans
sign G.Green to vet min

Rondo-Clark-Jackson
Holiday-Crawford
Allen-Hill-Green
Davis-Young-Diallo
Cousins-Asik

19 Sep 2017 04:46:02
Starting Allen and Rondo around Cousins and AD would
cause a ton of problems for the Pelicans offense. Teams could sag into the paint and bring the double off either guy if one of the two bigs gets the ball in the paint. Cousins and Davis wouldn't have much room to work at all. I think Moore's high level shooting is much more useful for the Pelicans than having a better back up pf.

19 Sep 2017 20:39:29
Wow. I actually agree with RKenne.

13 Sep 2017 09:26:13
Cavaliers-Heat-Pelicans

Cavaliers get Whiteside

Thomas-Rose-Calderon
Crowder-Smith
James-Korver-Jefferson
Love-Green-Frye
Whiteside-Zizic-Tavares

Heat get Nets pick, Thompson, Ajinca , Etwann Moore

Johnson-Olynyk
Thompson-Ajinca

Pelicans get Shumpert

Holiday-Rondo
Allen-Crawford
Shumpert-Hill
Davis-Cunningham
Cousins-Asik

13 Sep 2017 17:18:47
I wouldn't trade the Brooklyn pick straight up for Whiteside, never mind trading Thompson and Shumpert.

07 Sep 2017 15:08:36
My fantasy trade:
4 team trades:
Cavs get ANTHONY DAVIS and CARMELO ANTHONY

Bucks get Cousins

Knicks get Love and Parker

Pelicans get Shumpert, Monroe and Frye plus 6 1st rd picks (3 from Cavs, 2 from Knicks and 1 from Bucks)

*Giving 3 1st pick for LeBron to stay with Davis and Melo..
*Cousins and Giannis would be deadly tandem
*Porzingis(C), Love(PF) and Parker(SF)are better lineup than Melo and Porzingis
*Pelicans having 6 1st rd picks and big salary cap, let see what they can do in next offseason..

07 Sep 2017 19:33:58
Pelicans have no reason to trade Davis. I don't even think those specific picks get him alone, let alone whatever else NO needs to add.

07 Sep 2017 21:11:09
If the knicks include hernangomez to pelicans then there is a better chance this trade happens.

07 Sep 2017 23:36:13
I see that Sivretsolide brought his cousin to the site to propose even more remarkably lame Anthony Davis to Cleveland trade ideas. What sucks even more about this one is you shipped both Superstars out for picks who will not be near the caliber of either Superstar. So let me help you out with some reality

1) You are NOT getting Davis in a trade
2) You are NOT getting Cousins in a trade.
3) Lebron is going to bail on you after this season
4 ) No one wants KLove for what you pay him.

08 Sep 2017 00:32:23
dacman, just admit it. The Pelicans are going to be mediocre at best this year and worse next year. Cousins is getting traded sometime this year and in another year or two Davis is going to be traded.

08 Sep 2017 13:58:17
Lol. Hermangomez is the trick to getting the biggest NBA trade in history done? That makes sense.

08 Sep 2017 14:54:29
Guess we will wait and see rkenne . Until then though we get the pleasure of listening to yet more ridiculously stupid Cavalier fan based offers for All-Stars. Oh and by the way when Bron Bron bails on you mediocre will be the upside for your Cavs.

08 Sep 2017 21:54:02
James will no longer be calling the shots in Cleveland if they know for sure that he's going to bolt.

AD will be dealt at some point in time like rk said.
Boogie will be dealt at the TD, probably to Boston, as C's will need someone like him to get by the Cavs to get to the finals. Just don't think they'll beat the Warriors unless KD gets hurt.

K Love is worth his value, he is a good player. He's a double/ double guy for an average of 23.5 for the next 2 years till he opts out on the option year.

Cleveland is going to go back in the basement when James leaves and they trade TT and K Love.

06 Sep 2017 01:44:18
Cavs and pelicans

Cavs get Davis and holiday


Pelicans get love, Thomas, shumpert and nets first rounder.


Pelicans can start over. With love and cousin and look to trade cousins mid season for more younger players that will suit there needs. Thomas can finish the season and they can use his salary space for other players. Next season or offseason trade love for more assets.



Cavs finally get another all Star and build with Davis and hopefully James for another few years. They also get a good pg when healthier that can shoot better them most pgs.

Cavs starters

Holiday
Crowder
James
Davis
Thompson

Key bench is rose, smith, fry sounds like a mess to me for the warriors.

06 Sep 2017 23:33:10
Drumroll. We officially have by far the WORST trade idea ever!

07 Sep 2017 03:29:46
Finally get another All-Star? I guess they have been waiting two weeks to make that dream come true. Man, how the mighty have been forgotten (Irving if you're not following) .

07 Sep 2017 12:15:56
Congrats! You've officially offered the stupidest trade offer for AD on the site. They will be emailing you your gift card to Fantasy Island later this week.

07 Sep 2017 12:20:28
That's not close to getting you Davis, but a modified version could get you Cousins. In this case, I'd say throw the pick out, because that's too much for half a season of Boogie, but Love, Thomas, and Thompson for Holiday (in a vacuum) and Cousins could be a good move.

This gives Cleveland a PG for the whole season, and Cousins for the year. I think that's a better power three than they have right now, and it might be enough to keep LeBron happy. If not, Cousins comes off the books, and you're not dealing with the contracts of Love and Thompson. You still have the pick in hand, and plenty of money to work with.

For New Orleans, the flexibility the Cavs are getting is the opposite of what they want. They finally give Davis some stability. You have both Love and Thompson locked in next to Davis for the next few years, which gives you a dynamic frontcourt. You'd also have the ability to bring back Thomas, who's a better all around player than Holiday. you're not winning any championships this season, so you can wait out the injury, and make him happy in the meantime.

Holiday can't be traded until January, which makes a lot of this moot. but in the long run, it could work well for both sides.

07 Sep 2017 12:22:18
Also, Love is a huge downgrade from Davis, and even if the Pels could ditch DMC for expiring deals and picks, while also not resigning IT in the offseason, they still would still have $80M+ on the books for next years, which gives them less than $25M (projected) in cap space and the need to overspend to bring an FA to a mediocre situation that the Pels would qualify as. Add any salary at all in a Cousins del, and factor in draft pick salaries, and the Pels would be likely to add one decent FA, not another star.

I feel bad unloading on you Sivretsolide, but you have got to be one of the worst "GM's" on this site.

07 Sep 2017 12:43:43
It's not the worst trade idea ever. It clearly won't happen. But give it a rest. You aren't funny and it's just trying to hard for something that isn't there.

07 Sep 2017 21:41:05
Hilarious watching you (Hamburger) dole out civility lessons. Especially after reading several of your comments. Man that is rich!

03 Sep 2017 19:42:54
Cavs get vucevic cousins
Magic get Frye osman Jefferson felder
Pelicans get shumpert zizic Brooklyn 1st

Sign wade (if bought out) Ellis bogut

Thomas rose Calderon
Smith wade Ellis
James crowder korver
Love thompson green
Cousins vucevic bogut

03 Sep 2017 20:12:38
Probably not enough for Vucevic and if they get Cousins Vuvevic has no real place on the team. Crowder, Green and Lebron will get all of the the minutes at back up pf. Love is going to get minutes at Center and Thompson would eat up any minutes left behind. Thompson isn't a pf in today's league.

05 Sep 2017 14:35:46
Stop already with the incredibly lame " let's get an all-star for garbage" trade. You guys in Cleveland are pretty funny. After Lebron bails on you next year let's see what All-Stars wanna play there.

02 Sep 2017 23:23:27

Not terrible, but I think either the Suns would need to get the Pelicans first outright or they get Frye (expiring) and NOs keeps Asik.

04 Sep 2017 01:10:33
Pretty good.

05 Sep 2017 21:31:46
Thank you NBA for showing the Cavs fans there is a viable trade without Cousins being sent out.

02 Sep 2017 17:26:20
Pelicans inquire for shumpert..
Cavs could use Shumpert for Cousins

Cousins for Shumpert, Frye and Tavares/Felder plus cavs 1st pick

Or

Cousins and Pelicans 1st pick for Shumpert, Frye and Felder/Tavares and Nets 1st pick..

But if Davis available(much better deal)
Love or Thompson, Shumpert plus nets and Cavs 1st picks..

02 Sep 2017 19:20:27
Cavs get Noah for shumpert not cousins.

02 Sep 2017 22:18:35
Cavs get Porzingas and a first for Shumpert.

03 Sep 2017 12:32:52
Cavs fans seem desperate to get something for Shumpert, but he's not worth much at this point. A low-rotation player would be a good get.

03 Sep 2017 18:08:19
Supercollider, obviously in a deal like this Shumpert is added more for the salary numbers than value. He would probably have some value for the Pelicans since they're extremely thin at the wing and he probably opts out at the end of the year opening up cap for them. He could be a minor piece in a big deal for the Cavs, but if they trade him out right, I think the best they could do would be possibly a heavily protected first (not likely), but more than likely they save a few million in the trade and maybe pick up a 2nd.

02 Sep 2017 03:47:56
Pelicans final move

Pels - Tobias Harris

Pistons - E'twann Moore, Alexei Ajainca, 2018 Top 10 protected

Pistons plan on starting Stanley Johnson at SF and Joe Luer at PF, clears playing time while gaining a pick

Pels not only fill a hole but improve from Solomon Hill
* Pels can financially make the trade after the trade with Chicago

Lineup

PG - Rondo - Crawford
SG - Holiday - Clark
SF - Harris - Miller (Hill injured)
PF - Davis - Diallo
C - Cousins - Asik.

02 Sep 2017 13:06:46
Trash pack for Harris. No way.

02 Sep 2017 15:28:55
How bout that package of Pelicans for Evan Fournier? With the Simmons signing, Fournier is the odd man out. Would give Orlando more playing time for Isaac and Hezonja while gaining a 1st rd pick.

02 Sep 2017 16:15:07
Harris is easily the Pistons' best forward.

27 Aug 2017 04:43:55
This has been an ongoing trade rumor since the Cavs acquired Isaiah Thomas, Ante Zizic, the 2018 Nets 1st, and Jae Crowder for Kyrie Irving.

Cavs get: DeMarcus Cousins, Jordan Crawford, Darius Miller.

Pelicans get: 2018 Nets 1st, Richard Jefferson, Kay Felder, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, 2020 Cavs 2nd.

Thomas/Rose/Calderon
Smith/Korver/Crawford
James/Crowder/Osman
Love/Green/Miller
Cousins/Zizic/Tavares

Holiday/Rondo/Felder/Jackson
Shumpert/Clark/Moore
Hill/Pondexter/Jefferson
Davis/Frye/Diallo
Thompson/Asik/Ajinca

27 Aug 2017 05:35:38
So is Thompson added? If that's the case then the salaries don't match. The salaries work here but I don't think the Pelicans would accept something like this until the trade deadline and if the Pelicans are failing miserably.

28 Aug 2017 16:00:16
Please stop with the " Everyone owes the Cavs an All-Star for garbage" trade proposals.

29 Aug 2017 23:26:12
Why do you guys suggest these dumb trades that onlu benefit the team you like? Why would the Pelicans takes this dumb trade.

The Cavs get Ariza, Anderson, and Cousins

The Rockets get Melo

The Knicks get Shumpert, Frye, Tavares, Felder, and a Houston first

The Pelicans get Thompson, Osman, the Brooklyn 1st and a lottery protected Houston first

The Cavs end up absolutely stacked

Thomas/Rose/Calderon
Smith/ Wade(potentially)/Korver
Lebron/Ariza
Love/Crowder
Cousins/Anderson/Zizic

They would have easily the 2nd best starting line up in the league and a bench that would have an outside shot at making the playoffs in the East.

Houston gets their 3rd star.

The Knicks get some assets for Melo without taking on any long term salary

The Pelicans end up getting more for Cousins than they sent out for him.

Unprotect the Houston pick and someone has to take Asik, that would be the only way this could happen. But even with that i doubt NOLA does this UNLESS Cousins/ Davis is not working chemistry wise.
