Jefe, Ramon Sessions, Wayne Ellington, Ryan Gomes
Tyson Chandler, Stephen Jackson, Alexis Ajinca
We take on their three biggest contracts in terms of length and total salary (other than KLove). Jefe is the dependable big man we need that can help open things up for other players, a solid outside shooter with Carolina ties, and a nice athletic bench player.
At best, they get a terrific team defender that will let Love flourish in a starting role. At worst they get a massive expiring contract. They also get a proven scorer and veteran leader in Jack who can inject a sense of toughness into the team and a very nice potential big in Lexy who showed (at least in his DL time) that he can put up big numbers. If Tyson doesn't work out, they have Lexy to take his place.
