What bout howard for Lopez/gerald wallace

Lopez
Gasol
Wallace
Kobe
Nash

Could even trade gasol for SF and PG and move wallace to the PF(clark/hill would fill out rotation)

for me its a no brianer some buisness has to be done with the Jazz. they have too many bigs and Paul Milsap could be a great fit next to Howard. he can score from the outside, rebound, works very hard. and with him a deal to bring mo williams to be our sixth man of the bench will be great.

how you gona get either one? when BOTH are FA's to be and we CANT do a S&T for them due to the new restriction that kicks in this off-season that prevent teams that are $4mill over luxury threshold from receiving players that require a S&T.

both have earned contracts in the $5MM range but MAYBE one of them would be willing to take less and settle for the mMLE.

The one thing this offseason can bring us is solid bench players at a good price. We won't be finding any JR Swish or Jamal Crawfords (unless Nate would sign) but we can round out our bench nicely.

Realistic? No. Not next year. He'd have to demand his way here somehow and that could take years since we don't have many assets that other teams want.

Realistically I think his best shot at coming here would be to sign a 1-2 year deal with the Clippers, then come here in FA next season or in 2015.

But with his shaky injury history, I think it's unlikely he leaves the Clippers and their guaranteed money.

I'm hoping with Harrison Barnes emergence this playoffs, GSW might consider Rush expendable, he could be our starting 3.

I was thinking about this, but they have so many bigs...what would they want with Pau?

Right now they only have Favors and Kanter. Kanter is still a back up, but they might be ready to start Favors. Milsap and Jefferson are off the books. They absolutely are re-signing one. We can't get either via free-agency, so the only way would be through sign and trade.

Like I said, don't know where Gasol fits. If they want cap space, they're better of letting Milsap walk and re-sign Jefferson and start Favors.

But they might have some interest in Nash. They don't really have a point guard on the books (Jamaal Tinsley)....Nash could work with their bigs.

WE CANNOT DO SIGN AND TRADES FOR INCOMING PLAYERS IF WE ARE OVER THE CAP. WE ARE OVER THE CAP. IF THEY ARE A FA THIS OFFSEASON WE CAN'T SIGN AND TRADE FOR THEM.

God no. Gerald Wallace might have the worst contract in the league.

grantland had an interesting piece on who's the new age shane battier. a few guys on that list i would target, who i don't think are ridiculous to obtain.

1) dorrell wright
2) quincy pondexter
3) jae crowder
4) jeff taylor

none of then exactly light up the nets, except for wright, but they could come cheap. pondexter is still under contract, not sure a bout the others.

3 of the 4 are willing defenders, they all shoot in the 30% for 3's, and might be cheap alternatives.

Luxury cap, to be more precise, which is at $70M. But thank you for reminding everyone.

Anyone else think that Denver might be looking to move a few guys since they A.) Got bounced in the 1st round again, B.) They need to resign Iggy/Brewer, which will put them in luxury tax territory and C.) Because they will have too many role players on fat contracts.....

Denver needs a star player. A star starter. You know what I mean?

Denver has so many pieces.. They could put together an offer we can't refuse for Pau & still be contenders after the trade.

Really have no interest in any BIGTIME Stars to pair with Dwight that are NOT NAMED:

1) Kevin Love

2) Kyrie Irving

3) Stephon Curry

4) John Wall

5) LeBron James

Chandler ... yeah why not

Fournier would be an interesting deal "tweener" too ( not sure it is the right word)
