Default 5 realistic players you'd like BC to target this summer

Name 5 realistic players that you would like Colangelo to go after this summer. Obviously he can't get them all but a couple of them would be nice.

Some players already mentioned:

Nash, Dragic, Lowry, Iggy, Gordon, Ilyasova, Batum, Mayo, C. Lee, Asik

that's more than five jeffy

Batum IMO is not realistic, We'd have to give up our team for portland to say yes, if they even do.

PG is a position in need of young talent. Does not have to be starter talent since jose's sitll here, but he can be moved around easily if wanted to. So dragic, lowry, are the obvious choices. Bledsoe and augustin are two player's i'd like to target as well, though i'm in the dark about their contracts.

The thing about this team is, we have so many possibly great-good starters on this team, I really don't know what position to fill as it could/would be detriment to that position's player's development.

say we bring in WC, I believe it stunts JJ's development, and we can'/shouldn't get rid of kleiza with Val coming over.

PF we're more than set, with a piece needing to be moved.

center, resign gray, have val come over. maybe get a 3rd C but unnessecary imo.

SG DD is a dark horse, so we should sign a vet this season to back him up and if he goes up in flames look for a sg at the deadline next year.

That wasn't my list, thought that was pretty obvious.... just players that have been mentioned . Secondly, Batum is a RFA so we wouldn't have to give Portland anything, just overpay and outbid. Which i think is unrealistic but some might think otherwise.

Lowry, Gordon, Iguodala, Nash.

Ideally, as a pipedream, Lowry and Gordon would be it. If we could get 1 of them I'd be ecstatic. Getting 2 then I'd stop hating on BC altogether.

Judging by his last 2 peformances, patty mills for backup PG and if we cant pick up our nash's, dragic's or tyreke's i would have no problem putting him in the starting... But im an australian so i could be biased but last 2 peformances are

27pts 5 asts 2 reb 1stl 32 mins
34pts 12asts 5reb 1stl 1 blk 42 mins

But ideally
1. Nash
2. Dragic
3. Tyreke
4. Iggy
5. Mills

I'd add George Hill to the list, if BC gets a playmaking wing like Iggy. Hill is a solid defender and can nail an outside shot while playing off the ball. He's not one of my top choices for a future point guard, since his playmaking ability is lacking somewhat, but he might work okay alongside a point forward like Iggy.

I'm hoping BC looks beyond American players.

Maybe Ioannis Bourousis? The center position would be set for years.

Alexey Shved as SG? I don't know much about him, but some of the Euro RF members were talking about him in the Pekovic thread.

Assuming that deron does not come...and we are probabaly better off without.

First choice/consolation - subtraction;

Back up PG; Dragic/West or Brooks - Bayless
SG; Draft pick/Lee - Anderson
SF; Draft pick/Batum (probably not realistic)- Klieza (we could be screwed at SF if we don't get Barnes).... Grant Hill?
PF; Illyasova/J. Hill - A. Johnson
C; Nothing - Gray/Magloire

Bench; Budinger, Need a C (whoever is cheap) - I see Bargs playing C and JV backing up, and both at 4 and 5 occassionally.

I would be willing to give up my first born to see BC get Lowry and Gordon. I just can't see Portland (Batum) or NOH (Gordon) letting either of those guys get away without matching. It would take an insane offer for Batum, and I'm not sure NOH wouldn't match a near max for Gordon.

i'd love to see lowry at PG - defense, playmaking, knock-down shooting.

rondo would be a nice get but given the stage the celtics are at on the curve they'll be looking for a haul, and i think he's going to get overvalued.

in general i'm looking forward to this offseason, i think we're going to be looking at a very different squad next year.
