The Mavs were top 10 in offensive stats but but bottom 5 in defensive stats

Instead of dreaming of Howard (Which I rather have CP3) I want a defensive center here and be like the Pacers and Grizzlies where defense wins you games

So my offseason need will be Pekovic of Bynum

Tyson Chandler was injury prone before being a Mav. So I believe we can keep Pek or Bynum healthy.

We have the best training staff in NBA (Used for the USA Olympics, not Suns)

What about you all? Be realistic

Felton
Shump
Iggy
Melo
Chandler

Well the Pistons have a ton of cap space, so you know what that means. If Iggy opts out Dumars will probably offer him a ton of money. And we will most likely be able to get Shabazz if we want him in the draft.


Knight
Shabazz
Iggy
Monroe
Drummond

BOS gets: G Eric Bledsoe, C DeAndre Jordan, F Grant Hill, 1st round pick
LAC gets: F/C Kevin Garnett, F Brandon Bass

Hill has to be included to make the money work. If KG is willing to come back and play for the Clippers, I think that trade would be great for both sides.

You guys were talking about Rondo in the past... think there would still be any interest in him and if so what do you think would be a reasonable offer from a DET perspective.

If Mavs start the season WITHOUT any of the following I will be happy (and in this order):

Brandon Jennings
Overspending
Josh Smith

I think it is realistic to pull that off. There are plenty of FA that should be available for appropriate prices.

PS - it is unrealistic to think we will make a good choice with the 13th pick so just expect that to be terrible.

The Rockets need three things: a reliable No. 2 scorer, a low post scoring option and improved defense. Dwight Howard helps in all areas, but if Houston can't make that happen, I think they should wait a while until someone comes around who can. I have no desire to overpay for Jefferson, Millsap or Smith. I'd even be okay with the Rockets getting Dwight and playing both he and Asik on the floor at the same time.

I don't get why people keep saying this. Dwight and Asik on the floor together would be terrible. Absolutely no space to drive the ball at all. Offense would suck.

I would have thought that, too, except Greg Smith was essentially the Rockets starting PF at the end of the season and he has no more range at the 4 than Dwight Howard would have. That being said, I think if Houston does add Dwight, the best course of action would be to turn around and trade Asik for a comparably starting PF. If the Rockets ended up trading Asik to the Lakers in a sign-and-trade, though, they could feasibly have enough cap to add someone like David West or Paul Millsap with their remaining cap space.

mightybosstone

You wouldn't also amnesty Artest? I actually think the best move would be to amnesty Kobe, but if the guy is legitimately determined to come back this season for a couple of months, you have to make one of your all-time franchise guys happy.

IndyRealist
05-25-2013, 10:03 PM
In no particular order, the Pacers need:

* To figure out the PF position. Our starter, backup, and 3rd stringer (David West, Tyler Hansbrough, Jeff Pendergraph) are all free agents.
* Backup PG. DJ Augustin isn't the answer, though he's been decent.
* A defensive minded combo forward. The combination of Sam Young and Gerald Green aren't cutting it.

The 2nd and 3rd points could both be solved by Danny Granger coming back healthy. Whether he starts or comes off the bench, that allows us to play Lance Stephenson as backup PG. Granger could also serve as a 3rd PF in a pinch, as he has an underrated post game.

DTownSkitzo

-Draft Shabazz or Bennett for SF
-Overpay Iggy or Mayo for SG
-Sign Earl Clark (hopefully) or someone else as a backup big

-Hire Brian Shaw as head coach
-Andre Drummond develops a post move or 2 because he plans to meet with Hakeem

I think we'll re-sign West for sure. Having Granger back will be nice. I would love having Jarret Jack back here, but I'm guessing he'll want a decent amount of money, also a big possibility he re-signs with GS. We could also use another wing scorer to put next to Granger on the bench (assuming Granger comes off the bench.) I really hope we can find a steal in the draft.

Clippers are giving up too much. They could find better deals to package Bledsoe in.

Every team wants Dwight Howard and Chris Paul. If you end up with Monta Ellis and Andrew Bynum you will just be ridiculed because they are likely to ask for similar money but have none of the star attraction or the same on court production.

Clippers are giving up too much. They could find better deals to package Bledsoe in.

They might be able to find a younger player that can play longer, but there isn't a guy that's going to be available through trade that would have as great an impact on the 2013-14 Clippers team as KG. And Bledsoe is an RFA next offseason and S&Ts with that can be tricky so this is probably the year they have to trade him. They can get a younger player like Eric Gordon who isn't as good as KG now but has a long shelf life. Or they can take the older guy in KG, get a good year out of him and then have cap space the following offseason to add a 3rd star to CP3 and Blake. If they think Gordon or any young guy they can get is worth having on the books long term as the 3rd star, then they should go that route. Otherwise, they should take the greater short term improvement with no long term commitment.

I think all the needs on the Clips can realistically be addressed through trades, draft and MLE.

We need a starting SG who can defend and hit 3's. We also need a similar SF who can defend and hit the 3. Then lastly we an upgrade at center probably. Although if we can get one of the Van Gundy's in here to coach I'd give DeAndre 1 more year to prove himself under a better bigman coach.

Clippers have 3 starting lineup holes and a huge coaching decision to make. If they can address the 3 starting lineup spots decently and hire a top tier coach then we can talk about NBA finals next year.

Trade Bledsoe+DJ for Afflalo+Vujevic. Draft a SG like Allen Crabbe. Use MLE to get Paul Pierce.

Paul
Afflalo
Pierce
Griffin
Vujevic

6th man: Crawford

You are no fan.

True fans don't root for loses.

We can trade Turner and Thad for expiring contracts and first rounders this year, heck I'd even consider trading Jrue for expiring contracts and a top 10 pick this year and an unprotected pick first rounder next year....we can end up with 3 first rounders between 11 - 20 this year (and maybe a top 10 this year and a potential lottery pick next year in trading Jrue). Have $11 million to sign a SG or F/C and then (for the very last thing see if we can get a cap friendly 1 year deal) we sign Bynum and hope he can actually stay healthy and earn a max deal.

The draft this year isn't so bad, it just doesn't have the superstar....I think this is a draft with a bunch of good starters and you can build a core this year. I'm all for completely cleaning house and starting over but I would rather be the 8th seed, young, and getting better then root for loses. Look at the Pacers and Memphis, you don't need a top 3 pick to become good. You just have to know how to draft.

Kjthunder
05-27-2013, 09:24 AM
Thunder- Dont want to go into luxury tax so cant sign any FAs for over 4 million a year, Dream would be to amnesty Perk but i doubt they do that. So via draft, get Gorgei Dieng/Olynyk at #12 or trade up and grab Len. Then at #29 draft Sergei Karasov/Isaiah Caanan(eventual replacement for Jackson once he goes FA)/ or Jamaal Franklin. And lastly at #32 draft Jeff Whitey/Reggie Bullock/Glen Rice Jr/or Ryan Kelly.

But most likely we will draft a good player at #12 then a couple of stash picks with #29 and 32. So get a servicable big in the draft and actually GIVE playing time to Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones and let them develop! Id prefer a depth chart of this next season:

Russ/Jackson/Caanan
Thabo/Lamb/Liggins
Durant/Jones
Ibaka/Collison
Dieng/Perkins/Thabeet

We tried that it didnt work. I have had enough 8th seeds. Lets do what actual good teams do not the ok teams you mentioned. Lets get a real superstar in the draft. Then build around him.
