How about...

1) Send Stephen Curry, Ekpe Udoh and Andris Biedrins to the Lakers for Andrew Bynum.

The Lakers need offensive options and a point guard. They get both in Curry. They also get a young PF that can play defense in Udoh. They'll probably going after Dwight Howard in the offseason although I don't see how when they're over the cap. Even if they were to keep Bynum, his $16M (team option) contract doesn't knock off enough money anyways, so it would have to be a sign and trade no matter what. I think Gasol can easily play the center position with McRoberts at the 4 and eventually Udoh. Curry and Bryant would be a great back court while moving Fisher to the bench. They're struggling right now and Kupchak is trying to find ways to save his job. This could be one of them.

For the Warriors, they get one of the top centers in the league. He's not Dwight Howard, but he isn't that far off. At 25 years old, he's still going to improve and would be a nice long term centerpiece if they can work out an extension.

2) Send Monta Ellis to the Sixers for Evan Turner and Andres Nocioni.

I think the Sixers would jump on this trade. They get Ellis without having to give up Iguodala or Holiday. The Sixers biggest weakness is their ability to put up points. Lou Williams, off the bench, is their leading scorer. They still have that and get a true scoring option in the starting line up with Ellis. Holiday, Ellis, Iguodala, Brand and Hawes is a solid line up and better than what they have now (Jodie Meeks).

For the Warriors, its all about getting Evan Turner. This guy is going to be a special player. He's a do it all guy. He can defend and rebound. He can also handle and pass the ball like a point guard. He could play either the SG or SF positions. He's a guy that can make everyone around him better. He has a chance to be an All Star in a year or two.

3) Sign Patty Mills to a contract. He'll be cheap.

Line up:

PG Patty Mills- Nate Robinson - Charles Jenkins
SG Klay Thompson - Brandon Rush
SF Evan Turner - Dorell Wright - Andres Nocioni
PF David Lee - Dominic McGuire - Jeremy Tyler
C Andrew Bynum - Kwame Brown - Earl Barron
