so all the talk has made me think of reasonable moves danny could pull off..
STEP 1. they trade sheed (plus a future pick) to g.s for a. morrow in a sign and trade.. morrow gets a 4 year 18 million, golden state gets the cap spot. and a pick out of a player most likely movin on anyway in morrow
freeing up to use the MLE to get a center.
STEP 2. talk to shaq, brad miller, big Z, haywood.. get one of them using a 2 year deal full MLE.. cant see haywood taking that, but the others may like the 2nd year being offered. they finish they're career in boston due to the lock out. and maybe with a ring or another irng in shaq's case. miller gets my vote, very smart passer, wont mind coming off the bench when perk is ready to play, also and more important wont clog the paint for rondo, bradley, ta to drive to the hoop.
STEP 3. resign Tony Allen only cause of his D. sign him to a 3 year 12 million
STEP 4. use the LLE on ronnie brewer of memphis, they didnt offer him a contract so he isnt restricted...which is the most important thing. he'll be healthy by the break ala leon powe for the cavs. so that is basically the trade deadline deal they make. have bradley, brewer, morrow, TA as the young back court to play with rondo in the future. also brewer is big enough to play sf. and danny liked him in utah, tried to get him before he was delt to memphis. and they could resign him for longer in the rebuilding stages of this team.
STEP 5 offer the vet minimum to a big guy who may have the last chance to win = joe smith, theo ratliff, juwan howard, adonal foyle. my vote is juwan howard, he wont want big min when perk is ready so he wont be a distraction come playoff time, also filled in very well when portland went down with injuries to oden, pryzbilla etc. so he can be a help to young bigs and still produce rebounds and solid d on howard, shaq, duncan, bynum if asked.
so the line up would be=
STARTING= Rondo, Ray, PP, KG, Miller
bench of= Bradley, TA, Morrow, Davis, Jawon Howard
the last 3 spots go to Harangody, Semih Erden, Art Para.. . here comes the d league for art and luke!!
and finally perk and brewer rehab till the all star break letting them become 100 % healthy instead of rushing them back..
