Default What are your "Team Needs"???

What are your team needs heading into the draft and free agency???

Not asking for speculation or trade ideas. Just things you need (ie. low post scoring PF/C)

Heat needs Acie Law and Paul Gasol (as a miracle trade obviously )

Miami offseason action

The Roster:
- Dwyane Wade – $12.46M – Key player
- Shaquille O’Neal - $20.0M – Key player
- Jason Williams - $8.94M – Trade or keep
- Jason Kapono – (free agent) – Sign and trade/sign
- Udonis Haslem - $6.05M – Trade with more athletic forward or keep

- Alonzo Mourning – $2.76M – (retirement?)
- James Posey – (free agent) – Sign and trade
- Eddie Jones – (free agent) – Sign and trade
- Gary Payton – (retirement?) - Retire
- Dorell Wright - $1.7M – Trade (good trade chip)
- Antoine Walker - $8.55M - Trade
- Michael Doleac – (free agent) – Resign/sign and trade

- Earl Barron – (free agent) – Not resign
- Chris Quinn – (free agent) – Not resign
- Wayne Simien - $998K – Keep if not trade

Trade targets:
- Rashard Lewis
- Ron Artest
- Earl Watson
- Luke Ridnour
- Sebastian Telfair
- Brevin Knight
- Kenyon Dooling
- Corey Maggete
- Stromile Swift

Free agent market:
- Mo Williams
- Rashard Lewis
- Gerald Wallace
- Mike Bibby
- Jerry Stackhouse
- DeShawn Stevenson
- Steve Blake
- Smush Parker
- Matt Carrol

Draft:
- Acie Law – first round
- Javaris Crittenton – first round
- DeVon Hardin – second round
- Jared Dudley – second round
- Aaron Gray – second round
- Marc Gasol – second round
- Brandon Rush
- Nick Young
- Josh McRoberts
- Jason Smith
- Gabe Pruitt
- Derrick Byars
- Jason Smith

Needs:
- Point guard
- Small forward/forward
- Backup center
- Get younger
- Get more athletic
- Get better defensively

Dream lineup:
PG: Mo Williams
SG: Dwyane Wade
SF: Artest, Lewis or Maggete
PF: Swift
C: Shaq

Bench:
PG: Javaris, Law/Quinn
SG: Deshawn Stevenson/Jones
SF: Wright or Pietrus/Matt Caroll
PF: DeVon Hardin/Simien
C: Zoe/Doleac
I know it won’t happen, but maybe something is possible.

Possible offseason action:
- Pietrus for Walker
- Williams/Kapono & Wright/Haslem/Walker for Lewis/Artest
- Doleac & Posey for Artest
- Sign free agent Mo Williams
- Posey and 1st round draft pick for Corey Maggete
- Sign free agent Matt Carrol
- Posey or Wright and second round pick for Stromile Swift

Just a couple of ideas…

Default Re: What are your "Team Needs"???

I like the "dream" lineup but I would prefer keeping more players then adding new ones out of loyalty.
I say out of Jason Kapono, Eddie Jones, and James Posey try to keep two for the minimum amount spent. I would love to keep all three since they all have good qualities but there wouldn't be enough minutes to go around. I say let go of Kapono. Even though he's deadly from three, he's only capable of hitting an open jumper. He's too slow to create his own shot or play tight D. Both Eddie and Posey can hit the three with some consistency, also they are both more atheletic than Kapono.

Have Shaq and Udonis at the frontcourt. Unfortunately I doubt we'll be able to trade Walker away. His contract for the season is around 8 mil and he's not playing like an 8 mil baller. No team is gonna want to pay that much money for not so much talent. He's not helping by only shooting 27%ish last year and shooting under .500 from FT. I say we should chase after Artest or Lewis if we can but I sort of doubt we'll get them unless one of them has a mindset of going to Miami.

As for a guard, I would prefer AC Law over Javaris but we'll all see how that'll turn out. Either way, Riley's not replacing Jason Williams with a rookie until at least mid-season or so unless our injury-prone guard goes down. So I think..

C Shaq
PF Udonis
SF Artest/Lewis(Best situation) or Eddie Jones/James Posey
SG Wade
PG Jason Williams(whose mins will go down as season progresses)

Key Bench:
Eddie Jones and or James Posey
Javaris Crittenton/AC Law
Antione Walker
Alonzo Mourning

If we're lucky enough to get AC Law and he progesses ridiculous at Chris Paul pace then hopefully he'll be a starting factor in the playoffs. Either way, we definitely have a favorable shot to win the East as long as we have a healthy Wade and Shaq playing good basketball.

Default Re: What are your "Team Needs"???

we should try to trade antoine walker, jason kapono, jason williams and our first round draft pick for yao ming

then our lineup could look something like this:

pg - gary payton
sg - dwyane wade
sf - james posey
pf - yao ming
c - shaquille o'neal

with yao and shaq guarding the paint, we would be the number one defensive team in the league. we would also be unstoppable on the offensive end.

The Heat have signed Penny Hardaway, Devin Green, and Smush Parker so far in the off season. Still need to get more young blood in.
