How good do you think Mihm will be when/if he comes back? I am curious to know if he will be a viable player or if his recovery will never be 100%.

excellent question. I'm hoping he gets back to his previous level, which would make him a good backup.

I'm a Lakers GM --- I do the following:
Sign Mihm and Walton
Trade Kwame, Cook, 2 second rounders for J. O'neil (maybe 1 first, 1 second).
Get L.O. healthy - whatever means possible.

Starting Lineup:
Farmar
Bryant
Odom
O'Neil
Bynum

Bench:
Walton
Evans
Radman
Mihm
Shammond
Sasha

Minimize the rotation to 8 men when it comes to playoff time.

nice effort, but unless the Pacers are looking for an expiring contract (cap relief), then I don't think they will accept our scrubs. I think other teams could provide better deals (esp Boston).

No, Grant is off the books and not a factor for the off season.

[quote=gts]Ok what I'd like to do is start a thread for off season moves,

Ok, we are right there for the salary cap so if we dump a salary we are on the FA market.
So I say:
1) trade Odom and Cook to a team like Charlotte or Atlanta in exchange for their 1st rounder.
2) Sign R. Lewis to a multiyear contract around 14 M (we get the second scorer, finally).
3) Draft a good PF with Atlanta/Charlotte pick, this year there are plenty of them
4) Go after a Phil-like PG on the market, as Watson. Maybe in a sign and trade with Walton, or in exchange for Radmanovic+our 1st round pick

So we could have:

Watson/Farmar
Kobe/Evans
Lewis/Walton (or Radmanovic)
Charlotte Pick /Turiaf
Kwame/Bynum/Mihm

This team seems better to me.

What we need is a defensive stopper - someone that can stop penetration from the guards. We score enough points, just can't play defense.

What IF we put a package for a sign n trade for Chauncey? Would he be enough to put this team over the top if the trade did not include Odom?

Chauncey
Kobe
Odom
Walton
Bynum

Bench
Farmar
Turiaf
Mihm
and who is left over from the deal.

chauncey will be hard to come by, he's going to probably get a huge contract to stay in detroit... i'd love to have him but his payday has arrived and he's going to be looking for it...

excellent thoughts. Except I don't think we can draft anyone (unless its a top 2 pick) that will be as good as Odom is right now. Secondly, I don't think we can simply dump salary...not that easy...teams are required to be within 25% of each other (or is it 15%). Anyway, all we will have is the MLE to work with.

how about this?
Kwame & Cook
for
Jamal Crawford & Channing Frye

Knicks get much desired salary cap relief and they get rid of two superfluous players with 3/4 years remaining.

I suppose this deal would depends on how badly the Knicks want relief.

Eddie Jones will be available for the MLE, he'd give the team a veteran presence off the bench, he's not a slacker, he and Kobe get along, he plays defense and can hit the outside shot with regularity

I bet he can be had for less than that. I think he will go to a legit contender to finish his career with a ring.

We don't have the cap flexibility to do anything significant in FA and to get anything of value via trade we will have to give up something of value.

I like the idea of landing JO, but we will need to give up LO to get the salaries to match and Indiana to agree.

LO, Kwame, and Cook for JO and Tinsley.

Resign Luke and Mihm if healthy (if not try for Magloire in FA)

Line Up

PG: Tinsley/Farmar
SG: Kobe/Sasha/Evans
SF: Luke/Evans/Vrad
PF: JO/Turiaf
C: Bynum/Mihm or Magloire
