It's a good point in the season to step back and take a look. What do we have? What do we need to get rid of? What do we need? What we have?: #1) A. Drummond. Couldn't be more pleased with him. Looks like a "Franchise"-type player to me that we can build around (remember, it sort of takes two to win an NBA championship now). I think he'll be the best true center in the league next to Dwight in a few seasons (Bynum's not gonna last much longer). A+ asset we've got right here. #2) G. Monroe. I like Greg. But, honestly, I think he's a little overrated. He gets a lot of points and rebounds, but, IMO, it's really just because someone on our team is inevitably going to. Still, he could be a starting 4 alongside Drummond on a championship team. Probably shouldn't be expected to be more than your #4 scorer though. #3) B. Knight. I'm pretty "meh" on Knight. There are flashes of brilliance. But, obviously, so so many things he needs to improve upon. Being optimistic, I'd say that he could be the starting 1 / #5 scorer on a championship team.. but that is being optimistic. #4) R. Stuckey. Hasn't improved one bit since his rookie season, and perhaps has even regressed a little bit. Starting to get up there in age a little bit too now, and has a big contract. The potential - and thus trade value - is gone. Still, good enough to be the first guard off the bench on a championship team, and a combo-guard at that. #5) K. Singler. Probably never going to be talented enough to be a starter on a championship team (on one without 3 super-stars at least). But he's talented enough, and the right kind of player, to come off the bench and be a role guy on a championship team. #6) J. Jerebko. I don't know what he's done to get in Frank's doghouse, but I hope that he'll be able to get out of it, and - like Singler - I too think that he's talented enough, and the right kind of player, to come off the bench and be a role guy on a championship team. That's it for what we've got that we can move ahead with, IMO. Now, getting into.. What we need to get rid of?: #1) T. Prince. I hope we can find a contender willing to take on his contract. I've felt this way about Prince for a long time now. I think he's a horrible team-leader. I think he holds us back. I hate his on-court demeanor. I hate the level of energy he brings to the court. I hate the lack of work he puts in (weight room?) in the off-season. I don't care if he was the 5th best player on our championship team, and neither should anyone else. I want him gone. Out of here. Free up more PT for players that might actually be able to get a championship here. Bring in a better veteran leader, or leaders. [FONT=Calibri][FONT=Calibri][FONT=Calibri][FONT=Calibri][FONT=Calibri][FONT=Calibri]#2) C. Villanueva. Again, hate his on-court demeanor. The level of energ[FONT=Calibri]y he brings to the court. The lack of hard work in the off-season. I want him out of here ASAP. Amnest[FONT=Calibri]y him. Unlike Ta[FONT=Calibri]y, he can't even pla[FONT=Calibri]y D or contribute offensivel[FONT=Calibri]y.[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][/FONT] #3) A. Daye. See Villanueva. Only difference, let him walk as a FA. #4) C. Maggette. I don't think we brought him in here to be a long-term piece. Nor do I think he is a long-term piece. Let him walk as a FA. That being said, I'd rather have him here than the aforementioned three. #5) J. Maxiel. I like the effort / intangibles that Max brings. I just don't think he's much of a player. Not very good on D. Not good enough on O to make up for it. #6) W. Bynum. Same deal as Max. Like his effort. Game's not enough. Let him walk as a FA. #7 / #8) K. English / K. Middleton. Who knows. Who cares. Might end up being good enough to make the team. Might not. It doesn't really matter.
