We send: ZBo. (3,000 years, 14.6 m)
We get: Marquis Daneils (1 year, 6.8 m), Jamaal Tinsley (3 years, 6.7 m)
We buy out: Big Snacks, Marbury
Tell Tinsley: Raise your trade value, we'll help you resurrect your career
Tell Daniels: you were a cap throw in. We'll trade you if we can, or buy you out.
What we get:
Smaller, more tradeable parts. Our cap hit decreases by 8 million in 2010, for sure, with a chance to trade tinsley away in the next 2 years.
What Indiana gets: A low-post presence that is a rebounding machine. Zach could easily get above the 20-10 line with all the caroms that come off the rim in O'Brien's scheme--and Zach doesn't even have to move!
