Just a few trades ideas from BskBall.com
Here's the article:


"The NBA has granted a $4.05 million medical exception to the Philadelphia 76ers to acquire a replacement player for Matt Geiger. The rules regarding the exception give the 76ers lots of options, and they have until Dec 24th, to use it. The one thing the 76ers can not do with it is sign multiple players, while it would be appealing to add two $2 million players, only one players can be signed using the exception. The biggest value the exception can have is in trade. The 76ers can now trade a draft pick for a $4 million player, giving a team looking to move off salary a partner. The 76ers have been exploring the free agent options for the better part of last 10 days, and sources close to the team say they have had some introductory discussions with Olden Polynice, Jim Jackson, and several others, they likely scenario is in trade. With teams like the Knicks looking to shake up their roster, and the Heat looking to make a move as well, there are a number of interested teams looking for the flexibility the 76ers exception could grant them. Hypothetically, the Knicks could trade say- Othella Harrington to 76ers for a draft pick, gain a substantial trade exception, to then go after ... Karl Malone or Dale Davis without having to give up two top tier players. The Heat could deal off a player, and gain more luxury tax room to trigger a Small Forward deal. There are lots of options. December 15th, is when the real trade talk begins as players who inked deals this summer and last begin to transition. Players signed early this summer can be traded. The 76ers now have some cash in their pocket, and are looking to add, but be warned. They are still squeamish about the luxury tax, don't expect anything too radical."

First if we don't have the second trade set up there's no point trading with Sixers....otherwise we'll end up like last time....three high paid point guards>

right, and why would Philly help NY and vice versa? This doesn't make sense.
