I think we should cut ties with Odom, Hill, and Billups this offseason, look for new and promising prospects, maybe get a really good backup big in the draft.
Yep I hate to say it but too old.
I was rather dissapointed in Billups this season. He has been out of the lineup more than he has been in. Hill has been a non factor as well, and while Odom can be an asset he hardly is worth the 8 million per year we are paying him.
This offseason we need to cut ties with Hill, Hollins, Turiaf, and Green. We need to resign Odom for the veterans minimum (this will save us 6-7 million and if he doesnt want that let him walk). We need to give Matt Barnes a better contract (perhaps 2 or 3 mill per year for two years).
As much as people may dissagree with me we also need to move Billups into the coaching staff and let it be known that his playing days are over. I love the guy, but hes done as a player. Still, we cant deny the guy has a knck for coahing and calming the players, so i want to retain him and eventually groom him as a potential coach or assistant coach.
The next move we need to make is to revisit the Trevor Ariza for Caron Butler trade. Ariza is younger, can play better D, and seems to just have more in the tank than Butler.
We need to also draft for positions we are weak at like the SG position. No more guys in their late thirties we need to make sure we are staying athletic.
Why cut Green? He is the ideal third string SG and we only pay him the vet min. You are not going to get much better value at the vet min if at all. In my opinion he is a steal at that price. Undecided about Turiaf and Hollins. Its not easy to find quality backup bigs for the vet min. I think they have done a sufficient job. I mean what the heck do you expect from vet min players? I know Barnes got paid the vet min but we lucked out with him. He is worth more even though he needs to calm down with the techs.
