No JJ and Hedo means we'll need to sign a wing for MLE (crawford?) and we can sign t-mac/bogans/stevenson/pietrus/bill walker for the vet min.
    It all depends on if Nelson opts out or not.
    I'd imagine trading JJ for a second rounder would be doable. JJ is a bargain at 6 million for one year.

    The rest is ambitious, but not gonna happen.

    If we let Orton, Anderson, Clark (he would have to chose to leave), Wafer, Smith, Liggins, and Nelson go then trade JJ and Hedo for literally no salary (very, very unlikely) it would leave us with only Howard, Davis, Richardson 1, Richardson 2, Duhon and Harper. They'd make about 40 million. That would give us just enough to sign a max player. We'd then have the MLE to use on one or two players, and the minimum contracts. It would be an interesting team.

    But again, that's just not going to happen.

    im not expecting it to happen. Im just hoping it does.
    Hedo's contract is not that bad anymore. He has 11 mill due next season and a partially guaranteed contract the season after.

    Dwill/duhon
    crawford/jrich/stevenson
    qrich/crawford/pietrus
    Baby/Clark
    Howard/orton

    this team could be very dangerous.

    Well, your pants should feel safe, because I'd put the odds of that happening at about 0.5%


    Maybe I'm being too pessimistic, but I'm not getting my hopes up at all. It's never that easy...and as Magic fans we should know by now not to expect super stars to want to flock there in today's NBA

    I know bro im dreaming,I wish it could happen but no team in their right mind would take on Turk even with our 1rd pick,we would have a better chance talking Turk into retirement.

    To be honest I don't want to trade JJ, unless it's for a deal we can't refuse, but I like how he's grown on our team. He's easily my fav Magic player on our current team. Though at this point he's one of the only ones that have any trade value.

    As far as our free agents

    Restricted

    Ryan Anderson - I can see somone signing him to a high contract just to see if we match it. I wouldn't over pay for the guy but I do want to keep him on our team.

    DeAndre Liggins - haven't seen much of enough of him to have any opinion good/bad on him. If the FO thinks he's worth developing and we can sign him cheap then why not

    Unrestricted

    Earl Clark - I don't know how I feel about the guy. He has no jump shot, his offense as a hole is below average but he puts stats up in catagories most of our other starters don't, rebounds, blocks, steals, ect. He's a scrappy guy. I wouldn't use an MLE on him, I don't even know if I would use half our MLE on him. Though he is young, in any case if we lost him I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

    Jameer Nelson - Personally I like Jameer, I know he's not a fan fav but at least we know what to expect from him. Ideally I always thought he would be a great 6th man off the bench. He's unrestricted so I don't know what kind of contract he expects at this point in his career.

    Daniel Orton - I would like to give him another countract, he's extrememly young and raw. Could be something good for us in a couple years, we signed him knowing he was a project and I would hate to see us bail out on him while he's still young. Big men are not very cheap to sign, even if there not very good so I would def offer him a contract.

    I think Big Baby was our best player in the playoffs,I say we let Ryan walk and sign OJ Mayo.

    Jameer,Duhon
    Mayo,Redick
    Turk,Jrich
    Baby,Clark
    Dwight,Orton

    I like Mayo as well but I don't see how he would fit on our team. I mean he's a slasher and that's good but we're already loaded at the sg with JJ, J Rich and von Wafer, is Mayo THAT much better then what we have?
