I can't find an ideal off-season post or any of that. If it is somewhere, let me know and I'll move my comments to there.
Anyways, I was thinking about what I think would be a great off-season at this point and what I would like to see happen.
And this is going to be for the whole team.
First, I hope they add Alvin Gentry and Nate McMillan to the Coaching staff. I would make McMillan the Assistant Coach (the one who takes over when MDA is ejected or whatever). Nate runs defense. Gentry and MDA run offense. You can add other assistants and what not, but I would think those two would be the biggest and most helpful additions.
Next, to go with the rumor of Pau for a lottery pick, I would be fine with the idea....if you could do it obviously, of trading Pau to the Pelicans for Eric Gordon and their lotto pick. In the trade machine, ESPN's, it said that you could add Robin Lopez to the deal and it would work, which I think would be nice because that is another Center and PF type player that can help us off the bench, plus with Pau coming in and Anthony Davis there, I think they would be OK without "Sideshow" Robin Lopez. Eric Gordon would be nice too to work with Dwight and play for Kobe if Kobe doesn't heal in time. With Eric Gordon you cold move Kobe to SF and then I was thinking with the Pelicans pick, you get Cody Zeller. He seemed like a good rebounder and what not, give him a chance to fight for the starting PF Spot
Then I would try and sign Odom, Tony Allen, and if possible Nate Robinson. I would also try and get Barnes back if I could. I think all of those guys would be great. Odom could start or Zeller could start and that would be nice to see, then you have Clark and Hill off the bench and what not.
I think the only downside to all this, as far as a dream in my case, is that getting Gordon would mess up the 2014 plan a bit, wouldn't it. But maybe it wouldn't mess it up too bad that we couldn't get others to go with Dwight and Gordon.
With Gordon and Dwight, we got some young talent that might make some cool highlight reels, and maybe Clark, Zeller, and Hill could add to those. Odom would be back and we all have seen that it wasn't great, though not entirely bad, to let him go. Barnes was helpful and maybe would be great with MDA since he was kind of a dud with Mike Brown.
I think that is a great off-season and one i would hope for and would like to see. Guess we have to wait and find out.
What do you guys think? What would you want?
