We've been struggling with the current roster... there's good depth but it's not properly balanced. I got to thinking about creating the ideal team... a team that can contend this year and many years down the road. I think we tend to fall into the trap of thinking only our players are the right solution... aren't there better players available that can be obtained to fit our core roster? Here's the "dream" scenario that I'd like to see happen: Prince is re-signed A trade of Arroyo, Glynny(signed for filler), Hunter, Amir or Jmax to Atlanta (Joe keeps the player with highest ceiling). We receive Harrington and Delk(expiring) Atlanta will lose both players anyways...they'll except prospects in return Delk is a very good defender with excellent range. Harrington eventually becomes our starting post up SF. He's a good defender. Delk's expiring money is used to help sign Ben & Prince. This year: C- Ben, Darko, Davis PF- Sheed, Dice, Darko, Jmax or A.J. SF- Harrington, Prince, Delfino, Dupree, Jmax or A.J. SG- Rip, Prince, Evans PG- Billups, Delk/Acker 2006/07 We hold Harrington's rights and exceed other offers roughly 7M starting. We trade DD's expiring contract for a prospect. Minny goes on a serious slide and KG finally reaches his patience limit We trade Rip & Sheed for KG (it's a dream right?) Dupree is not resigned Prince becomes our starting gaurd... giving us another ball handler to use CB off the ball more... he also gives us a height mismatch at SG. We become a great post up team C- Ben, Darko, KG PF- KG, Darko, Dice, Jmax or A.J. SF- Harrington, Delfino, Jmax or A.J. SG- Prince, Evans, Delfino PG- Billups, Acker, MLE PG Eventually (In a couple years) Darko becomes our starting Center and Ben backs up the PF/C position Young... battle tested and built for the future This thread is intended to see who has a good solution.... If you're interested put your GM hat on and think in "a better box". How would you like to see the roster shaped for the future?
