We have 8 players guaranteed for next season. Lillard, Mathews, Barton, Batum, Claver, Aldridge, Freeland and Leonard. Combining around: 43,25M
Lots of young players and lots of potential to develop, so we need to add experience to the roster. In those 8, only 1 has more then 4 years of experience in the nba, Lamarcus Aldridge! And 5 of the others are rookies!
So my sugestion is add quality and experience... A team needs more then star players! The way i see it, we dont need more star players, we already have Lillard and Aldridge.
So assuming we wont have the 1st round pick, i present My 2013/2014 Roster (I would let Hickson go along with Pavlovic, Jeffries, E. Will, Nolan and Babbit, resign Maynor and get Morrow, Brand and Dalembert) This would give us a very good ofenssive wing (Morrow) and 2 bigs (Brand and Dalembert) that can score, rebound and defend. And some money left for a a couple vets...
Cap Limit: 60M
PG: Lillard / (E. Maynor:3,35M) / ( vet PG)
SG: Mathews / (A.Morrow: 3M) / Barton
SF: Batum / Claver/ (vet SF)
PF: Aldridge / (E.Brand: 3M) / Freeland
C: (S. Dalembert: 6M) / Leonard
I think this would make us a top4 team inthe West!!!!
What do you think blazers fans?
