Yes, A Trade Post

I have been having fun tinkering with ESPN trade machine today, and I had an idea:

http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=35vuo3r

HOU receives: Andre Iguodala, Chris Andersen

PHI receives: Kyle Lowry, Jared Jeffries, Kris Humphries, maybe a first rounder from us

NJN receives: Carmelo Anthony, Andres Nocioni

DEN receives: Derrick Favors, Chase Budinger, Troy Murphy, Shane Battier, and is showered with picks from New Jersey

For us, this trade would wipe the slate clean at the SF position, and gives us someone who I think is both a starting quality center and a good defender. We get better on both ends of the floor at the swingman (considering the addition of Williams), we sell as high as possible on Lowry, and we increase our presence around the rim by adding a legitimate shot blocker.

Philly gets a starting quality point guard who could very well help Holiday develop his game, and makes Lou Williams or Lowry a valuable trade chip for Philly in the summer. They'd also be rid of all excessive salary with the exception of Brand, and can start a bunch of young guys and maybe grow them like the Thunder (their starting lineup could conceivably be Lowry, Turner, Young, Brand and Speights). Humphries has also been somewhat of a surprise sensation this year, particularly in the rebounding department.

New Jersey gets Carmelo while keeping their other two coernstone-type pieces.

Denver gets the #3 pick in the draft, cheap young talent, lots of draft picks, and 2 sizable expiring contracts.

Honestly, I think this is a reasonable trade. Thoughts?

No cursing in title. No pirated material, such as links to online game streams. Do not cut/paste entire sections of content from other websites. Thanks.
