(First time FanPoster, Longtime Lurker)
With the season wrapping up and a possibly exciting free agency ahead of us, you are given the keys and the checkbook and told to make us a contender in the west. Who do you sign?
I think I would target Tyreke Evans or OJ Mayo as my big signing (leaning towards Tyreke). I would sit both him and Wes down and say look you both are starting quality and going to get similar minutes but one of you needs to take your talents to the bench and benefit the team by being our stud 6th man. I think Wes wouldn't have a problem with this if it helps get wins and a chance at winning 6th man of the year could be added motivation. Two ball handlers and shot creators in Lillard and Evans could be dangerous.
I don't give Maynor the QO but take my chances bringing him back on a smaller 2 year deal.
If Hickson for some reason isn't offered big money, then I bring him back otherwise bye bye JJ and I sign Earl Clark as my backup PF.
At center I bring in Jermain O'Neal on a small, short term deal leaving me with a vet presence and future flexibility. I would start JO but have Meyers getting the majority of minutes.
I fill out the rest of the bench with a shooter (insert your choice here) Anthony Morrow, Martell, etc.. And also bring E-Will back on a cheap deal.
I draft BPA and use my two 2nd rounders to snag Withey.
Evans (Matthews, Ewill)
Batum (Claver, Morrow or Martell)
LA ( Hickson or Earl Clark, Freeland)
O'neal (Leonard, Withey)
