It sounds like the starters smoke but we are weak on the bench. C and PF are OK but we have PG--BK 0 offense: Mobley or Eric SG; and 0000 at SF. After a 3rd rethink, Q won't work because he has 0 offense. We have some change left but we need a strong SF or swing man no matter what it takes or we're screwing ourselves. (don't you miss Corey?) ....

Well we have Jordan and TT for C/PF (both) not sure we have a back-up SF. SG mobley or Gordon. PG Knight and Taylor. We just need some at SF or someone who can play both SG/SF. ....

Vujacic sounds like a good fit- the guy can even play the point. But the Lakers will likely match the offer we give him though. Of course there's Azubuike, Q Ross, Matt Barnes, Livingston, Ryan Gomes, Carlos Defino, JR Smith.... ....

Matt Barnes is instant offense, Azibuike has talent and can really shoot the ball. Q, well he pretty much only plays defense, so he'd be a good option IF we can get some other scoring help. Delfino would be good to have and JR Smith is probably more trouble than he's worth if he's gonna be a backup. I dont know enough about Gomes and who knows about Livingston's return. ....

^^Gomes is a tough kid at 6'7" and 250". He's a good rebounder and a good shooter- he is a restricted FA so Minny may match. http://www.nba.com/playerfile/ryan_gomes/career_stats.html ....

Ryan Gomes would be great. He's like an undersized 4 with speed. I would bet the TWolves own't match now that they have KLove. ....

Gomes is a great fit. JR Smith is lights out when he gets hot. Barnes is another hustle & flow guy. Can't lose with any of these guys. If my calculations are correct, we have approx. 4 million left plus the MLE. That's still about 9 + million left to fill out the roster. NOT BAD!!!!!!! ....

No, I'm not sniffing glue but the wine.... What about D. Miles? How's his knee? Maybe he's learned he ain't the best. Would he come off the bench? Will we bang our heads again? ....

good post D-League...WE NEED THREES!!! i happened to have Coach D's e-mail and last year or so I e-mailed him saying we need threes and should go after the likes of jumaine jones or somebody...he never e-mails back..LOL...but i know it's his e-mail, since i type the e-mail addy, and his full name pops up on my outlook when I receive a "read receipt" hehehe But yes, we need 3's!! we are very well rounded now, but adding a "sharp" shooter....

Here's the list, per espn.com....let's see who will fit in our $3M range...we need THREES....who do you guys like?? Group I: Restricted free agents Only six first-round draft picks from the 2004 draft were signed to extensions last fall. That means some serious young talent is available this summer. These players' restricted status makes it likely they'll stay with their current teams, but at least they'll be in play: Smith1. Josh Smith, Hawks: Smith has been the hottest restricted free agent, drawing interest....

Here is my filtered list from my previous Topic Post, where I wanted to see who were available as RFAs that we should consider going after to solidfy our bench: Ricky Davis: he hasn't been mentioned yet, but he torches us all the time...a new fresh team/atmosphere just might motivate him, and we might be able to afford him... Sasha Vujacic: like I said, we need THREES....the rest of our areas are pretty well rounded, except for 3's and could use a....

I know...I'm not a big fan of Ricky, but potential is so great...we could always bury him at the bench, like Miami did, if he acts up, but he could be real good too, with the change of scenerry...plus, he seems to be relatively cheap.... ....

Sasha would be nice, aside from Davis and Gordan a little extra 3 point shooter would'nt hurt, but I don't know if the Lakes are going to try and sign him( or whatever) Ricky Davis, I think he'd fit nicely with the clips, IF we could get him though. I like delonte west as well, but Michael Finlay would also help Gordan( maybe even thortan) mature in terms of skill so who knows. ....

My list (in no particular order): Eddie House! Matt Barnes! Josh Childress! Barbossa! Did you guys forget about this guy? He is apparently on the trade block, and remember that potential deal we had to get him. He would be a great sixth man, instant offense, and somewhat can run the point. I like him a lot and think he would fit great with our team. I don't know if you guys read that article about Phoenix interested in Shaun, but we could do....

Azubuike and Gomes are both guys I like, but also both seem likely to draw matching offers from their current teams. What about Jarvis Hayes? He can play the two or three, and he's solid from three point range. Two guys I hope we steer clear of are JR Smith and Ricky Davis. Both are cut from the same cloth... it's a really nice pattern but the seams are all f**ked up or something. Loose....

Ach! Thanks Miquel, I missed the Hayes signing, sorry about that. Hmmm... ok here's an idea that's out there. How about JJ Redick? He's nothing but a bench guy at Orlando, and a DEEP bench guy at that, SVG and he just don't seem to hit it off, but we KNOW he can shoot. Or... Keyon Dooling? He's obviously unhappy with their (Orlando's) initial offer, maybe he'd appreciate a change of venue? ....

We have money left to get Iggy? That would be sweet! I say no to Ricky Davis, JR Smith, Sasha. I don't really think we need anymore three's. Were not a team built around the three and Baron, TT, Gordon, and Al will take enough per game already. ....

With $2m in cap space, we can absorb Redick's contract through trade (I haven't read anything of the Magic buying him out, though stranger things have happened). He could be worth a chance. If he doesn't work out, we could just let him walk at the end of the season. Not my first choice, but perhaps worth considering. A veteran 2/3 would be better. ....

i think we need to sign a scorer at the 2-3, a good swingman off the bench who can shoot. i don't know exactly who, but that spot needs to be filled. i heard michael wilbon on pti talkin about gettin iggy still, but that doesnt seem to make sense since we got camby. also, what bothers me is that we offered marcus williams a contract over ross, taylor a contract over livingston, and i think we also gave fazekas one....
