What does everyone think of this trade?

Memphis trades to Seattle:
PF Stromile Swift (11.8 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 0.7apg in 26.5 minutes)
SG Michael Dickerson (10.8 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 2.3 apg in 31.0 minutes)

Seattle trades to Memphis:
SG Brent Barry (14.4 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 5.3 apg in 37.5 minutes)
C Calvin Booth (6.2 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.1 apg in 18.6 minutes)

Memphis Roster:
PG Jason Williams, Brevin Knight, Earl Watson, Eddie Gill
SG Brent Barry, Wesley Person, Gordan Giriceck
SF Shane Battier, Drew Gooden, Wesley Person
PF Pau Gasol, Drew Gooden, Calvin Booth, Tony Massenberg
C Lorenzon Wright, Calvin Booth, Tony Massenberg, Robert Archibald, Cesar Trybanski

Seattle Roster
PG Gary Payton, Kenny Anderson
SG Desmond Mason, Michael Dickerson, Joseph Forte
SF Rashard Lewis, Desmond Mason,
PF Stromile Swift, Vladimir Radmonavich, Vitaly Potapenko
C Jerome James, Vitaly Potapenko, Predrag Drobnjak

I like this trade for both teams. Seattle has an abundance of outside scoring and no inside prescence (if they resign Rashard Lewis), and Memphis has a logjam at PF. Also, Seattle has like 4 Centers and no real PFs, so it solves two problems. I think this trade helps out both teams, but as a Memphis fan I obviously made it with Memphis in mind. If this trade went down I think Memphis would be able to make the playoffs next year, with a very deep team. I think if Desmond Mason develops into the player everyone wants him to be then Seattle could be in a very good position after this trade. I'd love to hear everybody's opinions.

I wouldn't do it in on Memphis' side though. They lose a potential GREAT PF in Swift, and a nice SG in Dickerson.
