Kurt Thomas / Amir Johnson
 
http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/s...eeAgents-10-11

Kurt will be 38 this year , and for the lack of back up material I think they the Bucks need to sign Thomas again.
The question is even with his age , he showed contending teams he still has juice.
So will he be willing to run with the Bucks or look to join a contender and fear the Bucks ?
-------------------
Hammond had drafted and had high hopes for Amir Johnson , but a trade forced him to send him to Toronto.
Now that Amir is available again - do you think Hammond will go after him ?

------------
As most of you know I am a huge Brandon Bass fan , and feel as if Amir and Brandon could lock in a nice rotation of PF for the Bucks.
Hammond would need to convince Amir to come , and put a guarennteeee that he would not trade him again.
Bass is expendable from the Majic's standpoint.
They acquired him for shoring up their fouls against the CAv's if they meet in the Eastern conference finals.
I think if Hammond could work a trade or even a 3 team trade he could get Bass.

thoughts ....

I think the Amir Johnson/ Sonny Weems give away was one huge blemish on Hammond's personnel moves (albeit overlooked and hidden nicely with Warrick/ Stackhouse). Those two guys can play and they hustle too, I'm still a little ticked we didn't keep them.

If a trade for Bass could be made I'd be intrigued but I have two concerns. 1. If he is available, I'd rather have Patrick Patterson. 2. I feel the Magic would want/LOVE Ilyasova and I just love the guy. His outside scoring potential with his hustle rebounding I don't mind seeing him get decent minutes.

Bell +#37 for Bass.

Bell expires 1 year earlier than the useless Bass (useless for them as i can see) and Bell could play a significant role if they don't re-sign Redick.

Ilyasova - will and always be bench material , playing tweener minutes at PF and SF depending the matchups.
he is young , but his build will never allow him to play full time (starting) at PF. And unfortunately he is to slow to guard starting SF players, unless he allows out side jump shooters to take deep shots , while he guards any infringement into the paint.
I think he has a career with the Bucks , but if down the road the Bucks need a legit starter and need to pull the trigger - he is expendable.
** HE just can't start on any NBA team, because his weakness is glaring as a tweener. (I just can't see him ever putting on 20 pounds , to become his natural self as a PF) All the Bucks need to do is look at Orlando , and see how over priced they paid their go-tee man :oldlol:
