Re: Peja Stojakovic's contract
Peja and Pondexter for Iguodala? Maybe throw in a 2011 2nd and/or 2012 first? even cash. Ideally you could deal Okafor and QP for him, but probalby unlikely. They do have identical contracts pretty much though.
You put Peja's expiring deal to use and you appease Chris Paul. Pondexter looks nice, but he's only going to do so much. In Williams' running offense, Iguodala would look great.
Why does Philly do it though right? Well,they have 2 guys who need the ball to be effective who are the future of the franchise and like Iguodala, they are not shooters. They get out of 40 million worth of Iggy's contract, put a shooter next to those guys in Peja, turn the franchise over to Turner and Holliday and Pondexter helps replace Iggy's athelticism at the 3, but he doesn't need the ball to be effective. Throw in draft considerations and maybe the cash and I don't see how its a bad deal. They need to move on from Iguodala and NO couldn't possibly need him more.
Thornton Wright (they miss Rasual Butler badly IMO, as a backup SG who can actually shoot)
Follow it up by trying to sign Roger Mason and pick up a backup C like Josh Boone or Etan Thomas.
If they can't pull off Iggy, try to go for Rudy Fernandez and TMac, plus the backup C.
