There's no way we can have Payton plus a gud PF n keep Horry or George guys,remember the salary cap,since it looks like Payton will come with the ML,we will have to do a trade to get P.J.Brown,the ideal PF for me,defense,rebounds,blocks,a hard n strong player.Howard is not that kind of player that we really need.
Hopefully we will resign Horry n then we will trade him.
I have no clue about the center we might get to replace O'Neal,i guess a veteran with the minimum contract,hopefully a guy better than S.Samake.
We could also use the $1.2 million exception if we get a PF via trade.
We will what happens very soon
