    TARGETS:
    Ty Lawson (probably the most expensive in terms of trade value)
    Brandon Jennings (coming off an Achilles, very volatile but talented player)
    Darren Collison (don't know if he is available since Rondo only got one year)
    Eric Bledsoe (is he even available?)
    DJ Augustin
    Mario Chalmers or Shabazz Napier
    Trey Burke
    Jerryd Bayless
    Ricky Rubio
    Tony Wroten
    Evan Fournier
    Luke Ridnour

    Who am I forgetting? Of the list of assets below, what would be the asking price for any of the above?

    ASSETS (obviously just a list of everything we have at our disposal in a potential deal, would not give up all of these for any of the targets):
    Rights to Sam Dekker, Montzrel Harrell (Dekker is expendable with Brewer re-signed, he won't get minutes)
    2015 1st rounder (doubt we deal any firsts beyond that)
    Rights to Llull, Gentile, Todorovic (would prefer to hold onto them)
    Terrence Jones (wouldn't mind using him as a key trade chip after drafting Harrell)
    Clint Capela (would prefer to hold onto him)
    Nick Johnson
    Jason Terry (sign+trade using full bird rights)
    Kostas Papanikalou, Pablo Prigioni nonguaranteed contracts

    What am I forgetting that we would be willing to include in a trade?

    Dorsey and Prigs as filler.


    My personal favorite is Brandon Jennings just because I used to watch him when he played in Europe and I liked him in Milwaukee. Him or Collison are my personal choices as to who we could trade for.

    jennings comes off an achilles not an acl. That makes a huge difference.

    We haven't heard any news about Jackson agreeing with Detroit YET. so we don't even know if he's available

    Add Stuckey in your list. then theres many pgs of other teams available in trades. from the bucks that I'm the most familiar with you can add bayless and mayo.

    I wonder if Bledsoe will go on the block. Phoenix only vociferously denied his availability because they don't want to look stupider right now than they are; but they won't stick around with Bledsoe on the books.

    Hope Dekker balls, because if grant balls in NY then we have a problem. Could've had another pg locked up for cheap or at least use as a trade filler for another PG.

    It's hard to make a trade for solid pg when we don't even have one to put in a trade.

    Rodney Stuckey using part/all of the MLE

    Im sure that Capela, Dekker & Harrell are staying put. Unless it's a superstar.

    I don't think Dekker or Capela are expendable. We need a viable backup center when dwight gets in foul trouble. That's not easy to find and Capela has a very high celing. Also we badly need shooters, and Dekker is that. Signing Brewer does not make Dekker expendable; they have completely different skill-sets.

    Actually you're going to have to include Klay Thompson to make it even

    Rodney Stuckey sucks. Aaron Brooks is a thousand times better.

    We have to beat the Warriors to get out of the west.
    So we need to be able to match up with them.

    Curry/Lawson
    Thompson/Harden
    Iguodala/Brewer
    Barnes/Ariza
    Livingston/Stuckey
    Barbosa/Beverley
    Bogut/Motiejunas
    Ezeli/Howard
    Speights/Jones
    Green/Smith

    We need Smith to resign. We also need both Lawson and the 6'5 Stuckey who can play the 1 or the 2 on this team

    trey burke is a good cheap target but you should know that he plays no defence. His ceiling is backup pg.
