Kidd/Cunningham/randy foye/(Shumpert)
Jr smith
RyanAnderson or illyasova/ j Jeffries
Chandler/Camby or krstic.

Would the money be there to sign Anderson/illyasova for 10m ish and foye/Camby? You already know that would make a better team

No one is gonna touch Amare awful contract, but then again i thought Joe Johnson wouldn't move either.

Trading Amare doesn't really open up any noteworthy cap the most 5-6 mil.

Right now we have roughly a 65 million payroll, and about 10 million in cap holds.

Taking 20 mil for Amare off that, and the team still will be sitting at 55 mil, 3 mil under the cap.

I like the guys you mentioned, but there just no way.

I will say one thing about sign and trades, they are about to be a thing of the past.

I forget which season it kicks in, possibly the 13-14 season, there will be no more sign and trades, so team will have to have cap space or exceptions to sign free agents.
