O yea...and then there's Earl Barron...who always plays well for us and never seems to get a shot at maintaining a roster spot.

I really thought about this. I dont think they are going to add another big. My sneaky suspicion is they are going to play Amare as Chandlers back up. They will play Melo at PF/SF, Bargs at PF/C, Stat at PF/C.

I really think they will add another SG combo type.

Can the front office convince Woody to play the kids? Or will Woody be Woody?

All I have to say is "Haddadi, we like to party, we don't cause trouble, we don't bother nobody"

Yeah nobody wants to think of amare or Kenyon Martin as centers, but you can't play 2 of them or chandler together with Carmelo. The center rotation is chandler/amare/Kmart whether you like it or not. Good news is the only c's in the east that could expose their lack of size are hibbert, Lopez, and if everything turns out for him- Bynum.

The bigger worry than who they play at backup center is how Woodson uses his gaurds. The danger is weakening the team by playi g 2 pg's way too much. Works good in reg season but setting yourself up for failure at the end

will Woodson play Barron or Haddadi? Nope. Do both will be irrelevant baring catastrophic injuries.

There's a lot of players, barring injury, that won't get any burn. That being said, 1. we are a very injury prone team. 2. It makes no sense to employ a bum regardless of his projected usage rate. End of the day, as a GM, you should be trying to make every roster spot count theoretically...especially when you have a 100 million dollar player that can't play more than 20 consecutive games without getting hurt.

Playing Amare at center probably works mainly since he wont play more than 20 minutes. i wouldnt be opposed to that.

i'd rather them leave that last spot open and see what shakes around the league, but if they use it it's on a min deal, so a cut wont be costly....as if I'm spending the dough.

I think we have 1 or 2 roster spots left. (I think it's 1). That last one HAS to be a big man. We have absolutely no shot blocking. We probably won't get any at this point but at least get someone who looks the part. I wouldn't mind bringing back Earl Barron. I also hear we are in talks with Ivan Johnson, though I'm sure us signing Tyler doesn't exactly make us more appealing.
Holy crap wroten for 2nd and cash- a young pg w this team would have been a great move

He got traded for a conditional 2nd round pick. In other words, he was given away lol The pick is top 50 protected lol. Nah but in all seriousness, Wroten is ok. He just cannot shoot a lick. He was horrible in Summer League and didn't appear to improve at all. I'll pass.

Philly could do that deal without involving us.

Not to say the Knicks wouldnt...I think they would....I would too.

The trade exception doesnt mean much, the Knicks wouldnt use it as they are lining up everything for that 2015 free agent class.

Entirely hypothetical but do you pull the trigger?

Andrea Bargnani & Iman Shumpert for Josh Smith
