Any Adelman players out there for the Rockets?

    I hope he tries to go after Mike Bibby. Since he has Kings connections, maybe he can try to work a deal to get Kenny Thomas or Shareef on this team.

    I haven't calculated any numbers, but would a Rafer + Juwan + 2007 1st Round Pick for Kenny T. + Bibby work?

    Anyone else we can go after to light a fire under this dismal offense?

    I havnt done the maths either but ive certainly done the logic and that proposal makes absolutely no sense for the Kings. Even if Bibby wanted out why would they trade with us and get 2 old players and a late first rounder. If Bibby was to want out they would be in a rebuild phase and i wouldnt even rebuild my local team with rafer and juwan. :D :D

    You are not gonna be able to add Bibby AND Thomas. Be realistic. I think Rafer+Juwan+Sura add up for Bibby, but even if we throw in a first rounder, they'll never accept that

    I do not think Sac would want to keep Bibby, since now he is playing out of their system and overpaid. I believe they would love to get rid of him. Heck, they really want him to opt out his contract. But with all said, not until we throw in Battier, there will be no deal ;)

    If they wanted to get rid of him, they wouldnt trade him for the only deal the rockets could offer (skip+howard+sura) because only Sura's is an expiring contract. They might as well keep a valuable player like Bibby around rahter than have scrubs like howard and alston for a longer period of time

    No. He has 2 more years @ $28m.


    Corliss is a FA. He'll be 34 in December but is low mileage and can still score in the low block. Worth a vet minimum if you're trying to build a deep team. And clearly more attainable than Bibby. ;)

    Checked hoopshype.com and they said Bibby is under payroll until 2008/09.

    http://www.hoopshype.com/salaries/sacramento.htm

    I didn't get this "Bibby Fever", his performance is descending yet earning Juwan Howard + shane Battier money. Ron Artest is the only player I want from Kings if necessary and I do not believe they will let him go easily.

    I am fine with Rafer as our PG starter and I would rather develop VSpan as our backup PG instead of looking for a replacement. I might even switch TMac to play PG while Rafer as backup if we were really that desperate to upgrade this position. Then we can look for a decent SG and PF. I would settle for Mike James as our SG. I don't know who's the best option as our PF though.

    here's what i would consider a good offer for bibby. look at the iverson trade as a measuring point:

    miller, smith, 2 first round picks = iverson

    rafer, juwon, sura, 2 first round picks = bibby

    miller is better than rafer. their ending contracts were larger than ours. but the sixers didn't even get a lotto pick out of the deal. plus iverson is WAY better than bibby so i think this offer is just about right.

    of course we would have to try to take one of thier pf's off thier hands if we're giving them another unathletic long term contract pf.

    In the draft, Glen "Big Baby" Davis is about as much an Adelman post player as they come. Not particularly quick, no defense to speak of, but an exceptional passer, very high basketball IQ, decent shot, runs the floor well, and can put the ball on the floor.

    Mentioned this already in a different thread but Howard for Vladimir Radmanovic. Radman had such a bad first year in LA that we could likely also pry away their second rounder or a player like Vujacic or Turiaf as well.

    He's on a tolerable longterm deal at a tolerable amount of $5-6 million a year and fits the bill of a young, athletic PF that has size and can shoot from downtown. Granted, he has his weaknesses on the defensive end and he's a career underachiever, but Adelman has had great success coaching players of his mold. It's not an idea i'm crazy about but i'd be willing to roll the dice with it if all other more attractive trade proposals fell through.

    Lakers would never do that. There are better players out there that they could get for Radmanovic than Howard. Howard = no trade value until next year (expiring contract).

    Because that's all we will ever get with our salary cap problems. Each year a couple thousand people we'll get excited over the next over the hill scrub or never-has-been we sign. I can hear it now:

    If Yao stays healthy
    If T-Mac stays healthy
    If Rafer can learn to shoot
    If Spanoulis can learn to shoot
    If Luther can play defense
    If Juwon can hit that 10 foot jumper
    If Novak can rebound and play defense
    If Wells can lose 50 pounds and show up
    If we can sign Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett, and Kobe Bryant.

    Realistic optimism is admirable. Blind optimism is stupid.

    I think his abilities are a better fit than Luther's, especially with Adelman coming in.

    Reddick can be for the Rockets what Jon Barry was for the Kings, a shooter off the bench to stretch the defense.
