Default Ok draft over, now who do we want from via Trade or Free agency

List your free agents or trade. Let's try to keep it realistic.

Trade:
Trenton Hassel for J.R. Smith

Eddie Griffin for Brevin Night
OR
sign free agent Speedy Claxton

sign free agent Nick Van Exel

sign free agent Melvin Ely

trade Marco Jaric for Chris Wilcox or Nick Collison

LINEUP:
PG: Brevin Night or Speedy Claxton, Randy Foye
SG: Rashad McCants, JR Smith,
SF: RickyD, Justin Reed
PF: KG, Chris Wilcox or Nick Collison
C: Melvin Ely, Mark Blount

I know it's still no automatic Western Conference Champion. The only way they are back in the hunt for Championship is to either trade for AI (which it sounds like Boston has the inside track) or Trade Kevin Garnett to Bulls and start all over.

Are you nuts? Hassell for JR Smith? Hassell is the kind of player you want, which is the complete opposite of JR Smith on a rebuilding team.

And there's no way in hell Seattle would trade WILCOX(ROFLMAO) or Collison for Jaric, realistic, c'mon.

We have to trade KG. Our rebuilding is about to happen and KG doesn not have to be here for it. But when you trade him, put Blount with him.

TRADE: Kevin Garnett + Mark Blount

for

Luol Deng, Andres Nocioni, Tyson Chandler

Then trade Ricky D with Hudson for Theo Ratliff

Then with the MLE sign someone like Melvin Ely with the MLE.

PG- Randy Foye | Marko Jaric
SG- Trenton Hassell | Rashad McCants
SF- Luol Deng | Justin Reed
PF- Andres Nocioni | Melvin Ely
C- Tyson Chandler | Theo Ratliff

I like it. Do you?

I think it's realistic too.

I think we should make a push to sign Joel Pryzbilla.

Trenton Hassell is a liability offensively. If the Wolves get enough scoring around him, that's okay. But right now, they do not. I think the T-Wolves should try to get Al Harrington (how, I'm not quite sure). Harrington is young, and can play on both ends of the floor. The problem with the Wolves, however, is that they have too much dead weight on their roster. Blount makes a lot of money and he sucks. As do Hudson, and Eddie "New Anthony Peeler" Griffin. I don't think they should trade anymore 1st round draft picks for about ten years. If the Wolves can't pull off a big move like getting Harrington, they may as well just trade KG and rebuild.
