If we get Dwight, who could/would you want us to trade for during the season?

    Yes I know not another freaking Dwight post but seriously I've been sitting over here in OZ and following this whole saga like crazy and it got me thinking, it's inevitable something is going to happen now that the nets are out of the picture whether it be Bynum or Dwight. Depending on when the trade/s go down we need to put other pieces around him otherwise this whole thing will be a bust, and I'm sure there a few players out there who are on crappy teams that would love to play with Dwight "pause" so who would you want and realistically think we could get? Or we could go in the other direction and say if Dwight doesn't resign by February or we don't have a championship caliber team around him we can just flip him to the nets around the trade deadline...

    I'd try and see if we have enough ammo to try and get Josh Smith. If not, we need to go after a playmaker in the backcourt.

    I wouldn't worry about getting anyone except some expiring contracts.

    Free up cap space get ready to bid on CP3's services. If you can convince CP3 to come play with Dwight, you got a chance to beat the Heat.

    Next year, both Josh Smith and Al Jefferson will be unrestricted. If some of our young, promising power forwards are involved in the trade, I would target these 2. I would prefer Big Al.

    Assuming the trade for Howard goes through; the names that are mentioned all have low free throw percentages (Josh Smith/Iguodala) with Parsons already on the lineup. It's going to be interesting, especially since Scola is rumored to be amnestied, and the Rockets have put importance on free throws.

    These names sound nice in the same sentence: Dwight, Monta Ellis, and Josh Smith.

    Josh Smith would be the 1st choice. Then I'd just wait for the next Allstar caliber player to demand a trade. It shouldnt be long...

    We need some veterans players to help our youths... McHale is complaining about that... "I don't know who will be this guy, Parsons?"

    With D-wright going to Philly. Iguodala is certainly available now.
