I thought about it and alot of plans (including some of my last plans) make no sense at all. All this makes sense adn could happen if Donnie would pull his head out of his ass.
Briong in Marquis as the starter BUT move him to the bench next year (if you get him a multi year deal) because we could have a shot at Joe Johnson, the best SG in the NBA behind Wade, Kobe, and Roy.
Now this year,
trade Stackhouse for a Center that can get you double doubles, play solid D, and give you the work ethic. Dalembert is great gets rebounds and plays D but his work ethic is not so great. Chandler great on everything but he might be a little too injury prone. Kaman is good too. gets you double doubles but once again, injury prone. That leaves us with Emeka Okafor. Young, gets double doubles almost every night, plays D, no history of being injured a lot, and is the guy who can go out and get his 15 and 10 and then one night gets you 35 and 15. Stack for Okafor. Damp has a 16 mill expiring so save hi (hate him) for next offseason and turn it into gold. Im not sure if we can get the same value for him this year. Someone research that and get back at me. Get Roddy B Ahmad Nivins and Shan Foster on the team. If you have to trade JET or Howard to get a younger player with same type of talent do so.
With the rest of your MLE resign Bass and try to pick up a cheap role player who can be your 8th man. Maybe Grant Hill for a 2 year deal??
Lineup looks like
Nivins (PF) like his upside
We gotta make something happen this offseason and get a big player (preferabley Joe Johnson ) in FA cuz we dont have a 1st rder next year and it is actually supposed to be a strong draft next year. One guy we could use isJarvis Varnardo from Miss St I think. He is a center.
