1. With the 11th overall pick (see trade below with Golden State), select BPA - likely candidates include Jan Vesely, Marcus Morris, and Kawhi Leonard.

a) Three-team trade:
Toronto trades Bargnani (Golden State), Calderon (CHA), and the #3 overall selection (Golden State) for Ellis (GS), Biedrins (GS), and GS's #11 overall selection (assuming the lottery falls according to the final standings).

Golden State trades Ellis (TOR), Biedrins (TOR), and #11 overall pick (TOR) for Bargnani (TOR), Diaw (CHA), and #3 overall pick (TOR).

Charlotte trades Diaw (GS) for Calderon (TOR).

NOTE: Diaw has a player option for 2011-12, and I don't see him opting out with the current labour situation not to mention that he won't earn $8M on his new deal.

b) Three-team trade:
Toronto trades Barbosa to Memphis and Weems (S&T) to Dallas for Caron Butler (S&T from Dallas).

Dallas trades Caron Butler (S&T) to Toronto and a future first-round pick to Memphis for Mayo (MEM) and Weems (TOR).

Memphis trades Mayo to Dallas for Barbosa (from TOR) and a future first-round pick from Dallas.

c) Re-sign Ajinca to a two-year contract.

3. Fire Triano, who is better suited as an assistant head coach. Hire Brian Shaw, if he's not retained by the Lakers, to be the head coach.


PG - Ellis/Bayless
SG - DeRozan/Kleiza
SF - Butler/Johnson/first-round selection
PF - Davis/Johnson/Dorsey
C - Biedrins/Ajinca/Alabi
