Should The Sixers Trade For Brendan Haywood's Contract? Of Course.

The Sixers are one of two teams that can trade for Brendan Haywood. Here's why trading for a 35-year old journeyman center scheduled to make $10.5 million this year is a no-brainer. Cleveland Cavaliers center Brendan Haywood has one of the strangest contracts in basketball. Through a series of contractual loopholes that really don't matter for the Sixers purposes (they're explained here if you're interested), the 35-year old Haywood currently sits with a non-guaranteed contract for around $10.5 million for the 2015-16 season.

Another deadline is looming for Haywood, one that most assuredly signals his end with the Cavs. His $10.5 million contract for this season becomes guaranteed on Aug. 1,...

Who could the Cleveland Cavaliers get for Brendan Haywood's contract?

The cap-strapped Cleveland Cavaliers have very little money remaining to spend on free agents. That means their best chance of adding to a talented roster that got within two wins of an NBA championship is using Brendan Haywood in an off-season trade.
