If it were possible, I think Danny needs to start tyring to find "2 for 1" takers to trim our roster. For example, If we could give up Bass and Crawford to get one expiring contract, or package a pick with a players to make something happen.
Somehow I'd like to see us have these guys as our core:
Rondo, AB, Green, Sully, Olynk, Iverson, Melo, Brooks, and either Toni Mitchell or Gigi (Italian SF).
After that I would look to keep Lee until a great deal comes along. Shav is cheap, and deserves a shot to beat out Melo. Pressy is worth a quick look only because of position.
Please dump White, Joseph, Crawford, Bass, Bogans for anything resembling a pick or warm body (in a two or three for one described above). Problem is, if someone comes back it puts us in need of ridding someone else.
That leaves Wallace and Hump. Wallace could be showcased for the first half in the proper style. Humphries as an expiring might have to be held on to until the break.
We could store Iverson, Pressy and Melo in the D-league to accomodate for who we might get back in 2 for 1 deals.
Do you think GS (in need of a PF and SG depth) would take Lee and Bass for Bierdrens and filler/pick? Not that this would be great, but thats the only kind of deal I think might be possible. This was just an example... fill in your own.
Any thoughts on combinations that would work in this scenario...or are there other ways to go?
