I also wonder if something like Jerebko and both 2nds for Marion and Cunningham(10.5 combined salary) woudl get it done. Save them 6 mil, give them 2 cheap picks(could stash one overseas and trade another for a future 2nd if they didn't want them this year) and a useful player in JJ who is probably better than Marion at this point.

Then maybe we grab something like Zeller/Bennett and Caldwell-Pope/Rice/Shabazz, or whatever you prefer.

While I'm sure they'd think about moving Marion's salary I don't think that's necessarily a deal breaker. Marion has been solid for them. They might like to keep him around if they're going to try to make another run. I know he's been in rumors before but he's a lock down guy for them still. I can't see them moving Cunningham. He had a pretty impressive rookie season. He's cheap, produces well, and has some upside.
