We're at the same page. I'd only keep Delonte instead of Ian but in case we'd aquire an elder center, keeping Ian is clearly more important, or Wright would be playing a heavy load of minutes every game. So no.
Also it would be a dream to keep one out of the pair Marion/Carter. Might not happen that we're able to stick to one of them.
However, I'm all in for giving up a lot of quality, to gain even more quality, through youth, in the long run.
The more you think about trade scenarios or whom you could add to our roster, I'll find more and more guys who could be fitting well. Not the big names but better or rising players. There are many options, especially with that cap space. It might be difficult to rebuild, yes but I'd say that there are interesting choices swirling around like you have posted.
Just like the Lakers tried by reaching out for Paul, I think our main focus should be the playmaker, then the hunt for our big man. You can go for an elder, younger, promising, quiter, louder, talented, fallen, someone easy to deal with to a difficult character... it's crazy to pick the right one from that pool.
Whomever we're adding and moving, anybody ever thought about how to replace Dirk in a few years? I think yes but what are you exactly thinking?
Should we let Wright learn from Dirk and let him grow in his shadow, taking off some minutes from Dirk meanwhile or do you think he's not planned and seen as solid replacement after #41's retirement? I'd like to see Dirk in a Garnett/Duncan like role on the team in 2 seasons, in case he want's to hang on some more time in the NBA, play on as long as you're healthy and having fun! He can still peak every now and then like those two players mentioned. And if he's still better than that, just let him ball.
