Default what we need to do

What we need to do is just get rid of a few people so we can clear up some playing time for out young people. I wouldn't mind just throwing away miles, and lafrentze because they are just hogging a bunch of cash and are totaly useless to the team at this point. I personally don't care if don't get anything for miles, maybe a draft pick and a throw in guy that won't get any playing time.

I think to get rid of those big contracts with many years left, you have to add on a young player or draft picks. No one would want to trade an expiring contract for a longer one, so incentive in the deal is important.

lol yeah the worst team in the league has the best site by far, how does that work? I know they have massive contracts and all but there has to be some team that is looking for a two massive contracts and lack of talent?

Well I thought that was what Portland was doing this offseason by making all those trades, and we can all expect at least 1 more to be made either before or during the season. Randolph and D-Miles have issues and I don't think too many teams in the league are big on DMiles so trading him is going to be tough (unless Isiah's foolishness gets the best of him again).

Well I'll take the harsh line here. The only 3 players I'm sold on in the team are Jack, Roy and Prz. Randolph I'm giving a last chance after his summer workouts. Everyone else can go. Martell is expandable with Roy here, I don't think he'll amount to anything but a good outside shooter. Miles is a lost cause, Outlaw doesn't have the brains, Aldridge is too soft, Magloire is a bum who won't give a **** about this team.

Trade them, Miles, Aldridge, Webster, Magloire and Outlaw can be had for a star SF. That should be able to get someone nice in return. At wors play Martell at SF.

PG:Jack
SG:Roy

SF:Randolph
C:Prz
