Re: If you were hired as the new GM of the raps...
Over pay 2 players and pick the young players you really want with them.
Nash and Batum. Both in sign and trades to clear out the salaries of Calderon, kleiza, and Amir
First you use the cap space and derozen + jj to s&t for Batum at 5 years 60+ mill
Calderon + Amir johnson to Phoenix
Nash + amare + j Lin + l fields to Toronto
Bargnani + kleiza + c frye + Childress to ny
Phoenix takes this to clear all contracts in 1 swoop
Portland wants to keep Batum but for 12+ per year they'd be thrilled with derozen and James Johnson in place of him
Ny needs to get a big that fits between Carmelo and chandler so much it's worth taking the contracts on
How could you not want this roster?
