summer 2011
 
with all the hype goin on this summer and the pacers coming out and saying that there not making moves til after free agency... what are some trades/ free agent pick ups you want to happen during the summer of 2011?

Don't really see Krstic as physically imposing necessarily. You mean THIS summer as far as trades go? If we wait until next summer it's nothing but capspace, Murphy, Foster, Ford, Dunleavy, Tinsley are all off the books so obviously can't be traded.

The 2011 FA class isn't anything special, some nice pieces, but nothing that'll take you from 35 wins to 50 wins or anything. To get a guy to come here I think we'd have to overpay and that'd be terrible. So trading is the only real scenario I see.

I really haven't thought about it a ton, but Murphy for Hinrich straight up is a deal I'd be very happy with. Then maybe a package of expirings and a future pick for Andre Iguodala, but I'm afraid Philly'd want to package a garbage contract with him (and Iggy's deal isn't exactly below market) and I don't know about that. But let's just pretend and say he can be had for expirings and pick/s, Hinrich/Iguodala/Danny/Hansbrough (draft pick, Udoh?)/Hibbert is infinitely better than anything we've seen in years. I really don't think something like that is outside the realm of possibility. Which means it'll never happen.

Anyway, I don't think any of them are getting traded. I really don't. I think they're all allowed to expire, Bird, Morway, and O'Brien are gone, and the team is sold. So we've got just under 12 months or so to come up with what, ~$400mm? I got a hundred on it.

kristic doesn't belong in the same sentence as perkins. 2 totally different players. perkins is a true center while kristic is a 7' jumpshooter.

Nenad is still physical just that's not what he prides his game on, unlike perkins.

well we'll have a ton of money to spend along with 2 drafts in between then so hopefully we can get a pg.
