They are not going to take on any contract in a sign and trade if a 36 year old, when they are looking to the future. In addition, Manu is, was, and will always be a Spur. The chances of him playing anywhere but SA, are zero. Less than zero. You can rant all you want on this forum, but he will retire a Spur in the next year or 2.
I was kidding about Manu, although if they would take him and Splitter for Aldridge (0% chance) I don't think the Spurs would think twice about it. Don't kid yourself.
But you're talking a trade the magnitude of the Memphis/Lakers trade that got the Lakers Pau and two championships. A trade that lopsided will not happen. And even then, you've given away half your team and guys that did contribute. You'd have to fill those in with crap.
