Thabo
Deng
Brand
Noah

Gooden
Tyrus
Nocioni

That is a pretty solid team with a great bench....what do you think?

Brand still has the option of opting out of his contract, so we might even be able to sign him as a FA. If he doesn't opt out, I think it would take Hinrich and Deng to get him, since Maggette will almost certainly be opting out of his contract, and they will need a replacement. My only concern is that Brand left once for more money, and I don't know if we will give him a lucrative long-term deal even if he shows he is completely recovered from his injury and back to his old self. I guess it's worth a shot, as he will probably come cheaper than most other all-star caliber big men.
