- Eddie Jones – (free agent) – Sign and trade
- Gary Payton – (retirement?) - Retire

- Michael Doleac – (free agent) – Resign/sign and trade

- Earl Barron – (free agent) – Not resign

Trade targets:
- Rashard Lewis
- Ron Artest
- Earl Watson
- Luke Ridnour
- Sebastian Telfair
- Brevin Knight
- Kenyon Dooling
- Corey Maggete
- Stromile Swift

Free agent market:
- Mo Williams
- Rashard Lewis
- Gerald Wallace
- Mike Bibby
- Jerry Stackhouse
- DeShawn Stevenson
- Steve Blake
- Smush Parker
- Matt Carrol

Draft:
- Acie Law – first round
- Javaris Crittenton – first round
- DeVon Hardin – second round
- Jared Dudley – second round
- Aaron Gray – second round
- Marc Gasol – second round
- Brandon Rush
- Nick Young
- Josh McRoberts
- Jason Smith
- Gabe Pruitt
- Derrick Byars
- Jason Smith

Needs:
- Point guard
- Small forward/forward
- Backup center
- Get younger
- Get more athletic
- Get better defensively

Dream lineup:
PG: Mo Williams
SG: Dwyane Wade
SF: Artest, Lewis or Maggete
PF: Swift
C: Shaq

Bench:
PG: Javaris, Law/Quinn
SG: Deshawn Stevenson/Jones
SF: Wright or Pietrus/Matt Caroll
PF: DeVon Hardin/Simien
C: Zoe/Doleac
I know it won’t happen, but maybe something is possible.

Possible offseason action:
- Pietrus for Walker
- Williams/Kapono & Wright/Haslem/Walker for Lewis/Artest
- Doleac & Posey for Artest
- Sign free agent Mo Williams
- Posey and 1st round draft pick for Corey Maggete
- Sign free agent Matt Carrol
- Posey or Wright and second round pick for Stromile Swift

Just a couple of ideas…
