Default The Free Agents we NEED

Now obviously we can't have them all, but these guys would really put us at the next level.

Rashard Lewis - SF - We're probably one of only a couple of teams that could give him what he wants, plus a few perks. He would give us a more guaranteed scorer and a generally known all-star/star.

Mickael Pietrus - SG - I haven't seen much of this guy, but from what I have seen and heard, he'd be a nice addition. He's aggressive and strong. He's most comparable to Gerald Wallace, but his game isn't as refined.

Anderson Varejao - PF - If we drafted Noah and got Varejao, the Bobcats would have quite a few "Hair Nights" at the arena. Besides that, he's aggressive and runs the floor. He's a good rebounder and can play a lot of minutes.

Michael Finley - SF - He's a veteran. He's got a lot of experience and can not only mentor, but can perform in the clutch.

Question Re: The Free Agents we NEED

Which players would/should be dropped from the current roster to make room for whichever veterans/draftees the team will sign?

Othella Harrington may possibly be cut because of age/uselessness. Ryan Hollins may spend another full year in the D-League. And it's very possible that Brevin Knight or Jeff McInnis could be released or traded. Definitely not both, but one or the other. Probably McInnis. Also Sean May and Primoz Brezec could be used as trade bait because of the large number of big men available in the draft.

Personally I don't see May or Brezec having much, if any, trade value. But that remains to be seen. What about the Andersons--where do they fit into next season's picture?

I was going to say that Alan Anderson's chances of staying are slim, but I didn't want to rush into that because he was cut and signed the same year, and I didn't see that happening again this year, but I could be wrong.

DA means a lot to this team. He plays valuable minutes at both guard positions, and he's a veteran and a mentor.

I wouldnt mind adding Pietrus. The guy is an athletic freak, and we could sign him cheap. I wouldnt mind adding Lewis, but in the long run were going to have to resign our core ( Okafor, Felton, Wallace ) and their going to want pretty big time contracts, and Bob Johnson hasnt proven to me yet that hes willing to spend.
