If you were General Manager of this team, what would you do?

Send a PM to YouAreTheGMContest with the steps you would take to transform this current roster into a championship contender.

The length of your plan (in words) doesn't really matter. We're looking for realistic trades, a solid understanding of

You could type five pages, but if your plan centers around trading Brian Cook for Dwight Howard, your chances of winning will be slim.

Oh so what's the grand prize?

Great idea.

I think there should be a limit on the number of moves though.

First you have to keep kobe for the season.
Next make sure there will be no injuries.
And i feel with this team you don't have to make a drastic trade just maybe a small one that will give us a good veteren to surround kobe.
We need chemistry and I have a hunch that this team will be a contender

Good stuff

We had something just like this over at TheLakersNation.com a few months back and it worked out great! Good way to see how what fans would do with this team. (The same fans that bash Kupchak)

What if someone takes an already existing idea and tweaks it? Seems a bit dishonest...might make people wait till the last minute to submit ideas?

To answer questions . . .

nicehair, you can enter only once. One entry per person. We prefer you come up with a plan and stick with it. Edits mean we would have to go back and re-read constantly.

You said drawing, but isn't it to the winner?

My bad, I just copied the format from the last contest. Prize goes to the best entry.

Also, championship contender now or in the future?

A championship contender right now, around this current team. Keep in mind, this doesn't necessarily mean sacrificing the future if you can be creative about it.

What if someone takes an already existing idea and tweaks it? Seems a bit dishonest...might make people wait till the last minute to submit ideas?
Hmmm . . . there will be a lot of similarity in the first place considering the amount of tradeable assets this team has, but you definitely make a valid point.

Unless you guys would be comfortable PMing your entries intead and posting in this thread for confirmation that you've entered.

Let me know.

For the NBA Salaries page it doesn't show yearly salary, just the total amount of the contract.

Ah, I see. For some reason I thought it was over due to the main topic being locked.
