First off, Chitown
Ak (13.7 mil) for Noc and Noah (10.7mil)
This Presumes that AK would be playing the 4 (which is wehre he is awesome - utah before last year, Russian team this summer). Not necc. an inside presence, but it would allow a very solid defensive team to maybe get out and run a little? Regardless of last season hes still got lots of offense (outside of a midrange jumper - shot 48% or so last year, his worst year)
Houston trades Shane Battier, Luther Head, Rafer Alston and Bob Sura's expiring contract to Utah for AK 47 and Ronnie Brewer
As a Houston fan, I like the addition of the player but not the contract. As a Utah fan, I wouldn't do it as we all remember Rafer and Luther's playoff series against the Jazz. They didn't show up. So probably a no go for both teams.
