sign ron artest from free agency
draft either beasley, rose, mayo with the second pick
and you have a solid lineup with artest who is a traditional SF
the only thing else i would do is try everything to get T-MAC, i head houson may look to move him and if so we must go aafter him i think

[url=http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=1708~250~617~2027&teams=13~13~11~11&te=&cash=[/url]LO + Luke for Dunleavy + Foster[/url]
Why the Pacers do it: They shed Foster's K and move Dunleavy, a player they say is available, according to THIS ARTICLE. Excerpt:
"The Pacers have been actively shopping O'Neal since the start of the regular season. According to NBA front-office sources, Indiana offered O'Neal to virtually every team at the February trading deadline. The response was lukewarm, with teams being scared off by the two years and $44 million remaining on O'Neal's contract.
O'Neal may just be the first domino to fall in Indiana. Sources say Indiana was willing to trade everyone but small forward Danny Granger at the deadline. "They made it clear they were willing to blow it up," a Western Conference executive said. Contrary to reports, front-office sources say the Pacers have been shopping forward Mike Dunleavy -- who is owed $29.3 million over the next three seasons -- while showing some reluctance to part with center Jeff Foster, who is considered a favorite of coach JimO'Brien. "
LO was already covetted by the Pacers last year, and he could slide right into the starting 4 position in their new, uptempo offense. He'd be a very good fit alongside Granger. Luke would also do well in their offense, giving their 2nd unit a playmaker.
Why the Lakers do it: We bring in a versatile, long, DEAD-EYE shooting SF in Dunleavy, who also averaged over 1spg last year. Numbers last year: 19ppg, 5rpg, 1spg, .5bpg, 3.5apg and [b]42% from 3-point land[/g]. He is versatile enough to play SG as well, giving us an SG/SF rotation of Kobe/Dunleavy/Ariza/Vlad. I LIKE that mixture of length, scoring, and defense on the outside. He's also a good passer and has a "high bball IQ". Sure he was a bit turnover prone last season, but he VERY much improved his shot consistency over prior years. Hell, he improved from 30% in 06-07 while with GS & Indy to 43% last year! His versatility is centered around his outside shooting ability, good rebounder, and pretty good decision maker/court vision, unlike Lamar, who's better going to the hoop and more natural at the PF in the East.
Foster would bring bench REBOUNDING, toughness and post defense. His $5.5M ALSO comes off the books next year, so we can just let him walk, OR trade him MID-SEASON for an asset, or perhaps parlay him into a trade for Ron-Ron (If Sac signs/trades).
We also, of course, get rid of Luke's contract.
Last, but not least, Dun could rub it in his pop's face when we beat down the Clips ;)
EDIT: Do you think they'd go for it if we swapped our #58 pick for their #17? Probably not, but who knows lol.
