- Houston gets a really good rental big man (their current Center is 6'6"), a decent backup PG, and they still get a quality SG/SF in return for T-Mac.
- Clippers get two quality backup PGs (Crittenton can be a backup SG, at 6'5"), and a major upgrade at SF.
I realize this leaves us with some holes in the lineup, but to me it seems like a move needs to be made. Camby, Ricky, Butler, and Collins (and probably Telfair) aren't really in the long term plans, so if they could pull a trade like this, I think it would be worth it to take a shot at T-Mac (who is currently voted in as a starter of the All Star game, without playing a single game this season - This would be good for you Donald Sterling) for a season. It's only one season, and he is a major upgrade over Thornton, at SF:
Kaman - Jordan - Skinner
Griffin - Smith - Novak
T-Mac - Thornton - (Korolev LOL)
Baron - Lowry
