A route to trading up, and more.




1. We trade with Chicago.

We also get the 20th pick and they get all three of our second rounders to beef up their bench cheap.

Chicago gets luxury tax relief (they have never, ever paid luxury tax).

We get some tough veterans closer to Aldridge's age.

After that, Chiacgo looks like

Rose/Teague/vet min

Matthews/Butler/2nd round pick

Batum/Butler/2nd round pick

Boozer/Gibson/2nd round pick

Noah/Gibson/vet min

We look like

Lillard/Maynor

Hinrich/Hamilton/Barton

Deng/Claver/Barton

LMA/Freeland

Leonard/Freeland

Trade Claver, the 10th and 20th round pick to Phoenix for the 4th pick and their second round pick.

Draft Oladipo.

Draft the Best Big Available (BBA)

Don't bother re-signing Maynor. Bring over da greek.

Lillard/Hinrich

Oladipo/Hamilton/Barton

Deng/Papanikolau/Barton

LMA/Freeland

Leonard/BBA

Sign Jermaine O Neal.

Lillard/Hinrich

Oladipo/Hamilton/Barton

Deng/Papanikolau/Barton

LMA/Freeland/BBA

Leonard/O Neal/BBA

Sign Dejuan Blair

Lillard/Hinrich

Oladipo/Hamilton/Barton

Deng/Papanikolau/Barton

LMA/Blair/Freeland

Leonard/O Neal/BBA

Cut Ric Hamilton, sign JJ Reddick

Lillard/Hinrich/Reddick

Oladipo/Reddick/Barton

Deng/Papanikolau/Barton

LMA/Blair/Freeland

Leonard/O Neal/BBA

Resign Luke Babbitt and Elliot Williams, just because, as 14th and 15th men.

Get LMA to play some minutes at C.

If it doesn't work, get what you can for Aldridge and Deng at the trade deadline and rebuild around Lillard, Oladipo + the free agency class of 2014.
