Well I know Adelman said he was going to try to get some bigger guards, I heard we have a chance at getting Mike Miller, Michael Redd, or Ron Artest. Shane Battier, Chuck Hayes, and Luther Head, and Bobby Jackson are the names that have been floating around as far as getting traded. I also heard were getting Gerald Green back. This Offseason should be interesting.
McCants would be an intersting player to get. 14.9pp in 26.9mpg but i doubt Timberwolves will let him go. I think they will try to build around the trio Jefferson-McCants-Foye.
One thing that bugs the hell out of me is scoring. we dont have another person outside yao and t-mac that dribble and create their own shots especially somebody off the bench. We need a third person that can score on their own. Ive been looking at Corey Maggette and J.R. Smith. Michael Redd or Mike Miller would also be intersting.
PG: Rafer Alston and 1st round draft pick
G: J.R. Smith and Steven Hunter
Denver might feel like they are losing too much by letting go of J.R. Smith but they are desperate for a point guard. They can score the ball, but they cant manage their leads or play defense, but thats a different story i cant help em on dat.
Houston gets instant offense off the bench. Smith is also dangerous frombeyond the arch. Steven Hunter's should make the deal work but also, he is a 7'0 feet tall. he should make a decent backup for Yao.
Trade Scenerios. Keep in my mind, the team were trading for has to be interested in what we are giving and the salary has to work. Also that I am neither a GM or agent so, Im just trying :)
Feel free to criticize, comment, or adjust the trades
For Ron Artest
F: Shane Battier
G: Bobby Jackson
F: Luis Scola (attract the Kings)
F: Ron Artest
F/C: Shelden Williams (backup center)
For Corey Maggette
G: Rafer Alston (need point guard)
F: Luis Scola (attract clippers because of potential)
G: Luther Head
1st round pick
F: Corey Maggette (He is their offense so i dont know how the clips will feel about the trade. Really it matters if corey wants out.)
For Mike Miller
F: Luis Scola
G: Bobby Jackson (makes the trade work and he is an expiring contract)
1st round pick
F: Mike Miller
For Michael Redd if we dont trade T-mac, this is assuming Buck just want to rebuild without Redd.
G: Bobby Jackson (last year of contract)
F: Luis Scola (potential, attact Bucks)
1st round draft pick
a third team would have to get involved because the i dont think the contracts would match up. I had Battier up there but come to think of it, we might be giving up too much with battier. any thoughts?
G: Michael Redd (positive: pure shooter, should get alot of shots from Yao and T-mac) (negative: we now have 3 stars, 3 injury prone stars)
... Kinda off the top of the dome, really hard to put thougt into it when your not sure what other teams feel about your players and their players value.

I really want Artest because he is the only person that we can involve Battier in a deal with, not that i want battier gone but it is going to be hard to get someone like Artest with just Expirers. Artest can defend the best player on the other team and create for himself, he is a headcase but we got people like Yao and Tmac who are chilled guys, should fine.
Now if we get mccants on top of that barring injury we should make the finals
Man if only things turned out the way we wanted....
I was just saying, instead of giving up Bobby Jackson, Luis Scola, and a 1st round pick, that right there works.
yeah but thats why i suggested a third team involved or an alternate solution because we cant get rid of battier... but its true, the main concern if we do this trade is that we end up with 3 injury prone superstars.
