my guess is this...DD, AB, Davis and V are locks...Barbosa is probably signed...rest are warm bodies at this point
If they are going to make a good trade or two, then they will have to give up more than just one of those warm bodies.

Nobody currently on the roster is a lock. Valanciunas, as a legit C with great potential, and picked with the current coach's input, is about the only sure bet for landing on the roster next year guaranteed.

In a throw away year, I'm happy for the guys to get rewarded with the occasional win, but there won't be many.
+1 we've always struggled getting to the line. and the only one close to being good at crunch time is DeRo.

Yeah, I think we can safely say that many of our players will be back next year, but for the few that will not, it could be anyone. So everyone has a good chance of returning, but everyone has a shot at not coming back too.

Likely back/staying- Derozan, Val, 2 of or our 3 PF's + 2012 pick

On the bubble- JJ, Bayless, Jose, Magloire, Kleiza, Forbes

Likely gone- Barbosa, Carter, Butler, Alabi, Gray,


As a guess I would say we'll have 8 or so of the players back. My list right now is Val, Derozan, Amir, Bargs, 2012 pick, Bayless, Kleiza,JJ.

I'd say 12 wins is pretty reasonable and we'd still land in the lottery.

I think Philly, New jersey (barring Dwight), Washington, Charlotte, Detroit, Cleveland, Milwaukee and us are going to have relatively homogeneous win totals.

Philly is better than those other teams, especially the Wiz and the Nets.

Milwaukee is better than the rest as well. Windex nailed it.

We'll see what happens with injuries. There could be others. Phoenix might join that group in a hurry.

I'd say we win 12-15 games, 7-9 is pretty ridiculous, I firmly believe we'll hit double digits.

Philly looks wayyyy better than you give them credit for. They have two legit PG's in Lou Williams and Jrue Holiday, to go with 4 solid players in Brand, Iguodala, Thad Young and Evan Turner. They are like us but better.

Before this win, this list has Raps at #15 in the league.

#15th in the league is horrible for tank nation. Oh yeah, but I forgot were in the east, so that's like 5th place in the conference. Not bad.
