Assuming that we want to blow it up- No KG, trade PP if possible- This is the possible trade pick trades we should try to get. We can actually still do this without really needing to blow it all up
1. Get the 10 pick for NO
I saw a rumor that NO wants to trade the #10 pick but we need to take the salaries of either Ariza and/or Okafor. I believe and hope we can get the 10 pick for the 21+22 maybe throw in JJJ and a 2nd and we take either or both the guys
10pick, Ariza/ Okafor – 21,22, JJJ, 2nd rounder
If we really need to or if a great guy fell to 10, I don’t mind trading a future 1st rounder for the 10 pick. Why? We will still be a playoff team next year. If we don’t, we will have a teens pick next year anyway. With a deep draft this year I don’t mind the gamble. We could get any of the following with the 10pick:
Austin Rivers( Yes im a big fan of Rivers. Future star in the making)
We need a young star to grow and those don’t grow with the 21st and 22nd picks
Next trade and my line ups after the break
2. Trade Avery Bradley + few first? 2nd? Cash? Anything for the 4th/ 6th pick
A great player WILL fall at 4. Whether it be the future center we need(Andre Drummond), the next student of KG(Thomas Robinson- he could drop), someone with a great work ethic, leader, future allstar, defensive minded G/F( MKG- hey it could happen) , or our next SF after Pierce(Harrison Barnes) or replace AB with a better shooter, more star potential with Brad Beal but I don’t see the hype in him. I think he’ll be ok but what do I know?
We can hopefully secure anyone of our positions in need. SG, SF,PF, or C can be answered with the 4th, and maybe the 6th.
This is less likely but if we really are going to blow it up, we should do this. Even if we need to trade PP( I hate the idea).
The Cavs may want a vet(PP) and a defensive minded SG( AB) to pair with kyrie irving and trade the 4th to us. Portland is a bit harder to trade with as AB may not be a need to them. We should sell high on AB. I believe he can be a great player but all star? Only if his shooting gets better.
Our lineup could end up like this:
PG: Rondo, Moore
SG: Austin Rivers( yes please)/ Beal/ free agent- bring back ray?
SF: PP( if not traded)/ Ariza/ Green
PF: KG( if not retired, he’s not going anywhere else)/ Thomas Robinson?/ bass
C: Andre Drummond? /Steamboat/ Wilcox
Ya its confusing. Really depends on that 4th pick. But my dream scenario is this:
PG: Rondo, Moore, West
SG: Rivers, Allen
SF: PP, Green, Ariza
PF: KG, Bass
C: Okafor, Steamboat, Wilcox
Not a bad team. It could actually contend for a championship next year.
Rondo will be a year better. Rivers hopefully will pan out and become the 4th scorer/ future star. Ariza is overpaid but can guard LeBron and hit 3s( well I hope he can), Okafor is an OKAY center. Overpaid but okay. Maybe he can become the next Tyson Chandler. Haha. KG is still KG and Bass is back to where he belongs. On the Beach. We bring back West.
My blow up lineup is weird.
I can’t pick which I want more or what I would like to select with the 4th pick. Im not a big fan of big man because I believe you just need a big man that can semi block shots, rebound and defend. You don’t need a star center. But I believe you need a star wing.
PG: Rondo, Moore, West
SG: Rivers( I WANT HIM), Allen? Mayo? Lou Williams?
SF: Barnes/MKG( the ones I want) Ariza, Green
PF: KG?/ Bass/ Beasley?/Ilyasova
C: Okafor/ Steamboat/ Wilcox
PG,SG and SF is set for the future. Yes we lack big man. We do. But we just need to find rebounders and shotblockers. Hell look at OKC and the Heat. They don’t have a lot of good big man but they are in the finals. We need great/ star wings to be in contention. Hopefully with the money we safe up we can get a quality big man in the future through free agency. Thoughts?
