    Tayshaun Prince, Ronald Murray, Amir Johnson & 2008 1st round pick for Pau Gasol & Hakim Warrick. I'd throw in a 2nd round pick in if it would get it done. Don't we have 3 2nd round picks this year? Ours, Timberwolves and the Raptors?


    Billups/Stuckey/Hunter
    Rip/Afflalo
    Herrmann/Hayes/Warrick
    Sheed/Maxiell
    Gasol/Dice/Brezec/Samb

    That is sort of intriguing.

    We would be taking on a huge contract for a long period of time with Gasol. $13.7 + 15.0 + 16.5 + 17.8. If it doesn't work out, we'll be screwed for a while. I'd probably put Warrick ahead of Hayes too.

    In your scenario, it would probably make sense to pickup Mejia to fill the 15th spot rather than CWEbb. That would give more insurance at the swing-man/ guard position.

    If it didn't work out we have a great player to trade.

    The dollars appear pretty close. The proposed trade certainly is interesting. Gasol is only 27. I would go for it.

    :hoops:

    Except that if it didn't work out, it would probably be because of Gasol. Either through weak defense or injury.

    These 28-31 year olds seem to be the key though. Experienced enough, yet not on the decline.


    What about this though. Why would they want Tay when they have Gay?

    Here's my cold-blooded, heartless trade idea...

    Dyess($6.4) + Hunter($2.25) + Bresec($2.75) + Murray($1.9) + Herrmann($1.9) = $15.2

    for

    Mo Williams($7.75) + Bogut($5.0) + Villeneuva($2.72) = $15.5


    Milwaukee would shed $18.3 in salary next year.

    We'd pick up a great backup PG and a nice true C.

    Billups/Rip/Tay/Sheed/ Bogut

    Williams/Afflalo/Hayes/ Maxiell/ Webber

    Stuckey/ Mejia/ Johnson/ Villenueva/ Samb


    Even our 3rd unit would be good.


    Pure fantasy I think. Even if Milwaukee would go for it, the Pistons couldn't dump Dyess and Hunter, right?

    How about Dyess and expiring contracts for Ben Wallace?

    Chicago would get cap relief and improve their team chemistry. We'd get rebounding, shot blocking and improved interior defense.


    Of course we'd have to fire Flip in order for that to happen. Hmmmm...another good reason to do the trade.

    I think dumping Dyess would be great, but Milwaukee wouldn't trade a bunch of youngins' for a bunch of oldies, ball hogs, and slow-footed players (obviously, Hunter is not one of the slow-footed guys)

    I just figured that they don't care about this year and might want to have $18M in spending money next year.

    The real problem with my proposal is that all those guys are producing for them under reasonably priced contracts. Their players have real value AND trade value.

    It's tough being a GM!

    First of all, excellent trade.

    2nd. couldn't we remove Lindsey and Villaneuva from the equation, and maybe sweeten with a pick? Then we could slide sheed down to 4 a little more of just play Amir a little more.


    C. Or They might cut Hermann or Lindsey if we wanted him back.

    Yeah, that would probably be better. Trading Lindsey was probably the most unrealistic aspect anyway.

    And although Vill is good, I realized that we really couldn't fit him in.

    Really, I was just aiming to find a way to get a playoff ready PG and C while reducing roster spots.

    Losing Dyess doesn't bother me if we get a real C and slide Sheed to the 4 spot. Also, if we can trade for a PG like Williams, then I'm cool with putting Stuckey on ice for a year.


    Bogut's passing ability would be a great match for our big 4.

    Boguts game is a lot like Webbers, except he may be getting a little better over time, and not worse. And he's certainly a little more nimble.

    Plus he's a legit C, unlike webber who is a cruiserweight masquerading as a heavyweight.

    Webbers a better jumpshooter, but would be less likely to accept a secondary role, and for the love of god do we ever not need another 30 year old + jumpshooter????

    I'd be total insanity to pay Ben what he is owed, and he isn't even the same player as 06' let alone 04'.

    The way Walter Herrmann bothered Dirk, I could see a Western Conference contender interested in a trade for Wally.

    But Jarvis is a very nice guy and I can see many Western Conference mothers interested in such a son in law.:)

    That's a good point.

    But if he was truly able to bother Dirk, then is he able to bother anyone else? If that is the case, maybe we should keep him.

    Are there any other slow, white, 7 foot tall jump shooters out there that we need to stop? We already held Bargnani to 0 points, so we don't need much more help there. Hmmm.

    And he's getting pretty good at blocking shots, and would get a boatload better with Sheed beside him.
