A different take on acquiring Melo




Clippers trade DJ, Jamal, and Duds for Melo. ESPN Trade Machine approves this trade. Before making this trade, Clippers pick up Bynum off waivers for the vet's minimum assuming he gets traded, clears waivers and the Clippers are able to pick him up.

Clippers Starting Five when CP3 returns = CP3, JJ, Melo, BG, Bynum

Bench = DC, Green, Bullock, Barnes, Odom, Hollins

Melo could also play power forward and BG can play center, so the Clippers actually add depth AND OFFENSE at the 4-5 position. Jamal is simply not made for the Playoffs. Duds is not a starting wing.

With DJ's rise this season and having another year on his contract, this might be the trade bait that NY would bite on. NY doesn't have a lot of options if Melo opts out and with Melo wanting to sign with only the Clippers, Bulls, or Lakers. The Bulls and Lakers need to re-build. The Clippers are obviously in win now mode. Throw in future picks, if necessary.

Get her done, Doc.......
