What do you think will happen?
I'd take those questions seperately, since what I'd like to happen probably won't happen.
Here is my video game plan that probably wouldn't work:
Trade Barbosa to Lakers (they have a TPE) at the trade deadline for the Mavs 2012 1st round pick
Bayless (S&T) + Ed Davis to Memphis for O.J. Mayo (S&T)
Use cap space for lopsided trade during this offseason:
Demar + 2013 1st rounder for Iguodala
Iggy has a jumpshot now. He's willing to share the rock and he plays defense. I know some people think he lacks leadership, but the upside to his game is worth giving Casey a chance to handle him.
Sign George Hill to an offer sheet and steal him from the Pacers. He's not really sexy, but he plays defense and can hit a shot. And, if B.C. overpays a little, he might just be able to steal him. Maybe send the Pacers the 2012 Mavs pick in order to get them to let Hill go. Hill might work really well next to a playmaking SF like Iggy.
Draft BPA with 2012 pick (this summer)
To accomplish this plan, it might be necessary to amnesty someone. Not necessarily Jose; maybe Kleiza. Depends if there is any other filler sent to Philly.

*and 2012 pick to go where needed
As for what I think will happen, maybe we get a good pick in 2012 and then we strike out pretty bad in the FA market. I'm not that hopeful.
