I'm not a fan of the Sonics at all, but I know that they have some tremendous upside. Considering what these 2 teams can draft next season, I think the Sonics and the Blazers are the 2 teams with the biggest upsides in the league.
SG: Durant or Green
SF: Green or Durant
Durant has been playing the two in SL so I see him starting there next season
Also, I don't see the Sonics bringing Green off the bench considering this dude was basically traded for Ray Allen, plus if I was a GM I wouldn't want to interfere with a top 5 picks development by bringing him off the bench.
I'm not sure Green could ever play the two since he pretty much can't shoot.

The Sonics should draft Roy Hibbert next summer. He would provide the Sonics with the inside presence that the Sonics really need. And also, with Hibbert, the Sonics have themselves a very large starting line-up that would create a lot of matchup problems for the opposing team
C- Roy Hibbert 7'2"
F- Chris Wilcox 6'10"
F- Jeff Green 6'8"
G- Kevin Durang 6'9"

we'll keep an eye on hibbert this year-- thanks
dont be surprised if swift has a breakout year though
I love Hibbert, too. He could reunite with former Georgetown teammate Jeff Green and would give Seattle a nice inside-out combo with him and Durant.
Our team are not heavily favored to make it in the NBA playoffs because of the tough Western Conference. But i predict that in less than 2 years another major acquisition the following year and Durant/Green having an NBA Experience will greatly improve our chance to be a solid team in the future.
Yeah Sonics could use a Roy Hibbert type (sorry, can't keep stressing my love for him enough). Maybe a Derrick Rose or Eric Gordon will fall to Seattle next year, too. Next year's draft class intrigues me, and it should be where Seattle strikes gold.
Wally has 2 years left inc this year. I dont see much point in moving him now being as no-one will be offering anything decent.
on topic, my 5 would start thus:
Rid (if he's starts badly he's gone. Put West in)
Durant (let him chuck away)
Green (we're going to get pounded so get him some tick)
Wilcox (same as rid, sub collison)
Thomas (only vet, good interior D, footwork. petro maybe)
