    I'd love Larry Sanders, but I doubt he ever gives his all to the game again. He's too much into finding himself and smoking weed.

    I really think someone like Ekpe Udoh from the euro league would be a good pickup. I made a post about him earlier, but you should check out his game.

    Morey would be wise to retain Smoove for one more season at least. For rebounding, rim protection and ball handling alone. Never mind that Anderson and D-mo are not reliable to play for an entire season.

    I also would not be opposed to bring bringing Smith back as a 3rd string center.

    We might be able to get into this chase for Rubio and Dieng, might, if Minnesota has any sort of interest in our younger players. Although you would think Sacramento would come along begging for Rubio and have a better offer.

    Sacramento. What a joke-as franchise.

    What about Boban? Is he worth a 10x3 and, are the Spurs ok in matching this offer sheet?

    The roster as it stands right now is as follows:

    P.G. - Patrick Beverley - 27 - (6-1) / Gary Patyon II ------ 23 - (6-3)
    S.G. - James Harden --- 26 - (6-5) / Eric Gordon ---------- 27 - (6-4)
    S.F. - Trevor Ariza ----- 31 - (6-8) / Corey Brewer -------- 30 - (6-9)
    P.F. - Ryan Anderson -- 28 - (6-10) / Michael Beasley ----- 27 - (6-10)
    ..C. - Clint Capela ------ 22 - (6-10) / ?? Montrezl Harrell - 22 - (6-8)

    Additional Depth:
    S.G. - Andrew Goudelock - 27 - (6-3)
    S.G./S.F. - KJ McDaniels -- 23 - (6-6)
    S.F./P.F. - Sam Dekker --- 22 - (6-9)
    P.F./C. - Chinanu Onuaku - 19 - (6-10)


    I think we have some decent assets to move.

    Don't tie up big money on a scrub. This proven backup probably still has his jersey.

    I'm really starting to think there must be a move for a center and/or a pg...those two spots seem pretty weak right now...

    The fact that Cole Aldrich wa signed to such a reasonable Deal when we have a pretty glaring need leads me to believe the same thing.

    Why would Pau choose Minny?
    A cold small city that probably doesn't have an opera I guess and too many things to do compared to what he's used to.
    No chance for rings only small kids around.
    And Thibs? lol he wasn't even his favourite.
