Default tradee scenarios

just though i'd throw some out there with guys like gasol the block..

Pau Gasol, Stromile Swift, Dahnty Jones, Alexander Johnson, 2nd round pick in 07

for

1st round pick in 07, Charlie Villanueva, Dan Gadzuric,
Brian Skinner, Ruben Patterson, Ersan Ilyasova

Bucks would look like

pg - Williams, Boykins, Greer
sg - Redd, Bell
sf - (Simmons), Jones, Hodge
pf - Gasol, Johnson, Markota
C - Bogut, Swift

Griz would have

pg - Atkins, Stoudamire
sg - Gay, Lowry
sf - Miller, Patterson, Ilyasova
pf - Villanueva, Warrick, Cardinal
c - Gadzuric, Skinner

I really do think both teams lookk better although the Bucks have a thin bench but could go 9 deep w/o playing Markota, Hodge or Grier much. plus add Simmons to that next season and we would compete to have the best starting 5 in the league

Do you work for Jerry West or something? You just gave the Grizzlies about three times as much as any other team would be willing to give for Gasol.

Take out Ilyasova, Patterson, or the 1st rounder (least likely) and it wouldn't be a bad deal for the Bucks.

I'm just look at it as.. this season isn't working out, next year we have some more cap space to sign someone or bring back Mo Williams and Bell with a starting five of

williams, redd, simmons, gasol, bogut

how could we not make the playoffs

then

gadzuric, ilyasova, bell, boykins

off the bench

& if the Bucks somehow stole Billups in free agency, i would say championship

We don't need Gasol to make the playoffs. We would have made them easily this year if we just stayed healthy. We'll make the playoffs easily next year as well, as long as we stay slightly smart this summer, and add two more adequate defenders (one through the draft, and one with a small MLE type contract).

Also your dream lineup of Billups/Redd/Simmons/Gasol/Bogut would be pretty great in the east, but still not the favorite for the championship I think. Tough to say, and it would be an ENORMOUS gamble to take, considering how much money it would take to steal Billups. That would be three max contracts, plus Simmons who isn't exactly cheap. Luxury tax for sure.

EDIT: Come to think of it, I don't know if I think signing Billups in that scenario is even technically possible. I doubt it is.
