its hard to re-build in 2 - 3 years considering that we have some players with long-term contracts that wont be easy to move, like JO, Tins, and Murphy.
I agree with you that Noc cant play 2, but he can play at the 3 and 4 (like Artest) and his defense is amazing..he can bring that hard nosed defense back that we once had when we were considered an elite team
I dont think theres any team in the league that would want Murphy considering his contract. Hes making about $10 mill a season. Heres an option for a complete turn around, remember we got to get young guys to give them a year or 2 to get gain chemistry with one another.
Trade Tinsley, Dunleavy and Williams for Hinrich, Nocioni and Sefolosha.
Trade JO to Portland for Frye, LaFrentz (expirer), and Przybilla http://www.realgm.com/src_checktrade...radeid=4565038
... Portland wants to add experience to their young lineup and get willing to deal http://www.realgm.com/src_wiretap_ar...heel_and_deal/
With our pick in the draft we could add another big man like Love or Jordan...
That could leave us with...
not a bad young line up. This kind of team could go deep in the East, and picking up a solid C in the draft like Love could put Frye back to his PF spot and Diogu off the bench. This is all wishful thinking on my part, I dont see Bird being all that active in the offseason. Its just his nature, and having an owner as a CEO and chairman always make them think of money first....... that lineup would be bad, nice young team you can build on
