This may all be moot tomorrow, but what the heck. Let's try and play catchup here. Assume the offer KP is going to make tonight is to Hedo, and that he accepts (obviously won't be official yet, but that's just academic). Where does that leave our lineup. My assumption is that Hedo gets about half his minutes each game at PF - so there's our backup to LMA right there. Let's see:
PG: Blake 24, Bayless 18, Roy 6
SG: Roy 28, Rudy 20
SF: Hedo 16, Batum 20, Rudy 12
PF: LMA 34, Hedo 14
C: Greg 30, Joel 18
Totals - 9 man rotation:
First off, Hedo pretty much eats up all our capspace, so any other additions must come through trade or minimum contracts.
But second, notice who's missing? Martell and Travis. Obviously you can sub Martell in for Batum if you like, but either way we have 2 extra pieces who should be used in a trade rather than letting them wilt on the bench. Or 1 extra piece if Martell isn't ready to go come fall. So, is the plan then to use Blake, Travis and either Martell or Batum as trade bait for a new PG, either in a straight up trade or a sign and trade? It would seem to make sense to me. That's going to be 8.7 to 12.5 million outgoing salary - enough to bring in almost anyone we could want, assuming we can find a willing trade partner.
So, if Hedo's the guy come 12:01, hopefully this post helps illustrate the logical next step.
