Not all of them...not JO or Peja, but the following seem possible:

Anthony Johnson
Croshere
Stephen Jackson

I doubt Johnson is moved. He proved he can be a solid starter for them. I mean he torched Kidd for 40.

I could see them moving Tinsley though.

Thoughts on Fred Jones? He's a good defender, but I don't know if he plays the point at all. More of a 2-3 guy.

He's an interesting prospect. He's a SG, but could be a PG in the triangle. It might take a year or so to convert him. He's a good slasher, good defender, has some nice hops, and is quick. But I'm not sure I'd entrust him with all the responsibilities of a PG. Assuming we got him, I'd rather have Kobe, Odom, or gulp...Luke (if he still has to start) bring the ball up the court, then hand it off to Freddy and let him set up the plays.

I agree with that assessment. He is pretty quick, tough on D. And his FT% shows that he can shoot...he'd sure get some open 3pt attempts. Wonder what Indiana is looking for in a trade.

^ Well, he's a FA, but has a restricted contract. So, we could either try to outbid them or make them a trade offer.

Yeah. If we made them an offer, I assume they'd make the qualifying offer to make him restricted and re-sign him. Another nice thing is that he has a good deal of playoff experience. 30-something games. Compared to 7 for Smush or Sasha.

I wouldn't mind taking s.Jackson off their hands. He gives us a legit second option scorer and get hit a big shot at the end of the game. Plus gives us championship experience being a member of the 03 Spurs.

WE wouldn't even have to give up Mihm to get him we could do either

A. Cook
Sasha
A.Mckie

for

s.Jackson

B.

Sasha
A.McKie
Smush
Wafer.

for

S.Jackson
Strikemode14 is the greatest.

I wouldnt mind AJ. Hes a good level headed point guard. I dont know where the heck he got his jumpshot from but its improved a whole lot this season.

Also wouldnt mind Croshere but his contract is too bad.

Don't see why they'd do A, but if they did...I'd even do Cook and whatever for Jones.
