    We have only six players, possibly five who by league rules, are allowed to be traded. L.A., Matthews, Babbitt, Smith, Williams, and Gadzuric if he has not been waived. I will assume we will keep at least L.A. 14,000,000.00/3 years because he is a cornerstone of the team, Smith 1,365,720.00/3 years  and Williams 1,442,880.00/2 years due to their quality and cheap contracts. This leaves ............... 
    Matthews 6,505,320.00/3 years,         
    Babbitt 1,892,280.00/2 years,     
    Gadzuric 1,352,181.00/1 year

    This does not leave much (under 10 million) to work with as far as trades are concerned and we have $0 trade exceptions.    
     I think our team is standing pat without any trades for now, we might sign Przybilla to a 1 year deal.

    What are your thoughts?

    Matthews is not gonna be traded. He is our 3rd best player in current roster and he is still improving.

    Guys for trade:
    Babbit
    Williams
    Smith
    Pavlovic

    That's right we also have Pavlovic, but I don't know if he is trade-able at the moment. I agree with Austin Martin and commontongue, we need to get rid of some weight (2 for 1) or straight up for draft picks then sign Przybilla.

    We won't trade Elliot Williams or Nolan Smith because we don't have enough guards and certainly not enough point guards, unless we were trading them for another point guard/combo guard, which is highly unlikely considering that the idea is to make room for Damian and have backups behind him (which Nolan is perfect for, just like he did in college behind Kyrie Irving). Also EW's explosive athleticism is highly valuable to us but would have little value in a trade because he hasn't had enough exposure, so we wouldn't get value for him = he's not going anywhere.

    So now you're down to 2 players to reasonably trade, Babbitt and Pavlovic. As critical as people want to be of Luke, he's gonna win the coinflip between him and Pav, an unproven who hasn't played at this level let alone for the organization.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
