The Nets would be bolstering the scoring off their bench by replacing Terry with Thornton, and possibly setting themselves up to absorb another contract, probably a big man, either by using their Disabled Player Exception or some other trade chip. Losing the rebounding of Evans would be tough for the Nets but they can find a replacement on the trade market.
The Kings would be freeing up more space for Ben McLemore to play heavier minutes and saving themselves a little over $1 million through the 2014-15 season if they end up keeping Terry and Evans.
