In multi-player trades, you should also consider who you will need to drop to add the extra player. If the drop is = to the 3rd player in the trade, you are really trading 2 for 2 and should review the trade realizing that it is really a 2 for 2 trade. That is why, almost always but not in every trade, the team getting the fewest players has the better side of the trade. Most often, the extra players will only sit on the bench.

In your case, the trade really looks like Rice and Bowe for Lynch and Jones. Would you make that trade? I probably would. Lynch is only a slight downgrade to Rice and Jones is a huge upgrade to Bowe. If you want McGahee take him or you could hang onto Pierce and hope for a Rice injury.
