Trades That Make Sense

NBA Variety

Orlando sends Brian Cook, Adonal Foyle, Mike Wilks, Martin Gorat and a 2009 1st Round Pick to Oklahoma City for Earl Watson

The Magic would get a dependable point guard in Watson to compensate for the season-ending injury of Jameer Nelson. A starting five of Dwight Howard-Hedo Turkoglu-Rashard Lewis-Mikael Pietrus-Watson can certainly compete for the Eastern Conference crown.

The Thunder would add about $6m of salaries set to expire at the end of the year and another 1st Round pick.

MLB Variety

Washington sends 1B Nick Johnson to San Francisco for LHP Noah Lowry

The Nationals have a glut of first basemen but lack any depth in their rotation while the Giants have an abundance of number four / five starters without any proven corner infielders. The deal seems to work for both teams.
