OFF THE BENCH:
Lamond Murray (if healthy great asset off bench)
Menk Bateer (IR)

This trade may not be too beneficial for the Raps, since you lose ever savvy-vet Antonio Davis and the ever-improving Mo Pete. But to look at the bright side, this trade really doesn't affect the team outlook at all. Deke may fill the void defensively at the center spot and is like Antonio at the offensive end; Kerry Kittles is definitely pretty overrated and I still believe Mo Pete is better than him. He can still score and play D though, and that's what counts. They haven't really addressed their point guard situation though and AW doesn't fit the bill. Milt Palacio and Rick Brunson are NBDL prototype guards. They should have at least swiped a guard like Zoran Planinic out of NJ's hands. They need a general upgrade at all positions and a true center, at least a backup one. Can Jerome Moiso fit the bill--or is he the next Samaki Walker? Otherwise I have to say, they have an extremely young team with Vince as their leader and Michael Curry and Deke as the vets, they may be a playoff team. They've got the right mix and this trade might just work. Lamond Murray off the bench is extreme when he's healthy and Jerome Williams provides interior D and explosiveness. They have a right mix, so I look forward to them playing well next year.
