Next Season Possibilities


We already have many important pieces, if we want to be a contending team.

We improved a lot with Maynor´s arrival, and he helped the other´s to improve to.

So the way I See it, If we fill the gaps correctly, we can easly become a Top team next year. Because until a few weeks ago, we just didnt have a bench...

1st I would keep 8 players

PG: Lillard

SG: Mathews / Barton

SF: Batum / Claver

PF: Aldridge / Freeland

C: Leonard

2nd thing to take care of is the backup point guard, i think everyone agrees that having Maynor made a huge diference to us, so we should keep Maynor, if we dont we may target DJ. Augustin or W. Bynum. Paying up to 3/3,5m.

Then, We need to think in at least 2 diferent scenarios...

1st Scenario: Keep Hickson (around 8m) and get a defensive minded Center and a scoring SG/SF, combining around 5/5,5m.

(Example 1: SG/SF: James Jones /C: Jermaine O´Neal)

(Example 2: SG/SF: Jodie Meeks /C: Chris Andersen)

or

2nd Scenario: Let Hickson go, and get a Center that plays good D and also Score, a PF similar to Hickson, SG/SF to score of the bench and eventually a defensive minded guard. This 4 combining around 13/13,5m.

(Example 1: SG/SF: Dorrel Wright/ PF: Elton Brand / C: Samuel Dalembert)

(Example 2: SG/SF: Martell Webster / PF: Dejuan Blair / C: Chris Kaman)

+ Def guard(Ronnie Brewer / Willie Green)

PS: In both cases we shoud add 1/2 more vets with a room exception if needed. And there is a guy i would keep a eye on, Chris Copeland from the Knicks would add some offensive power!

What do you people think? Do you have other realistic sugestions?
