Other than a trade.

I would sign Flynn with the mini MLE 2 years
& then bring back Barbosa with the MLE 2 years


Lowry/Jose/Flynn
DeRozan/Barbosa/Ross
Feilds/Klieza/Anderson
AB/Davis/Acy
JV/GreyAmir

what's the point of being ''gm's'' if we can't do any trades? sign whoever you want, don't care too much about our 3rd pg (uzoh, lucas, flynn all are fine)

Oh and one more thing Barbosa.. why? don't we want to give playing time to Ross?

We have little to no money to sign anyone, so whatever. IMO we need to make a trade for a SF. Other than that i don't really care. Re-sign Gray, one of Flynn or Lucas and call it a day.

But if i could i would trade Amir/Calderon/Pick for a SF.....don't know who.

We don't have the MLE, having used cap space. We are using most if not all of the mini-MLE (or Room MLE) on Gray.

We pretty much only have the minimum to offer, so people should frame their suggestions on minimum salary players.

Also, we already are bringing in Lucas III, so we have only one open roster slot, and BC has traditionally left that one open throughout the year for trade flexibility. So I doubt we see any more moves - the roster is complete.

unless there's a trade, which is possible. in 2009 he made the belinelli move in august i believe. but you're probably right.

people maybe dont get that were still rebuilding. Stand pat, thats what I do, suss out Derozan, ross fields.... see what they got, see what Davis has, again, next year some serious dudes come off the books around the league. Calderon is gone then, still have amnesty (i believe), can target another star to go with whats here now. Progress

agreed, I just wish BC isn't forced into anything by his lack of contract to force something to squeak into the playoffs. not making it might be best for this team. being a 14 pick in the lotto and losing it to houston is a best case scenario. we also see jonas beast it up near the end of the year, DD turn into vince, ross into tmac, and Bargnani into dirk, lowry into billups, and sign a lebron type SF and we go from no playoffs to championship!

What's going on with Matt Barnes? I heard that he was still unsigned. If he came cheap he might be a solid vet to have and could play the 3 spot.

EDIT: Ugh. Well if we can only offer the vet minimum I doubt he's a possibility.

I would bring back Magloire, and then sign a 3rd string small forward for the vet min. Someone like Mo Evans? Or even bring T-Mac in to play in a bench role.

If all else fails, I hear that Rasual Butler guy is pretty good...

Doubt he gets more, the main problem is pt, we have none for him. He'd be our third Sf and he won't come here for that.

The team is already done pretty much, barring a trade. Saying that, and the fact that I'm sure to get lampooned for this suggestion, but I think if we are missing anything it's a good scoring big off the bench and a bonafide sixth-man and the only remaining free agent available that could suit those needs is Andray Blatche. Though boneheaded he's proven that he can put up okay numbers and has some actual offensive talent. Going through the ordeal of being amnestied and then being passed on waivers I think would do the dual purpose of lowering his cost and lighting a fire under him since if he's ever going to make it in the NBA now would be his chance. Plus Coach Casey might be able to work something into that head of his.

Lowry/Calderon/Lucas III
DeRozan/Ross/Fields
Fields/Kleiza/Acy
Bargnani/Blatche/Davis
Valanciunas/Blatche/Johnson/Gray

If it doesn't work out, we can just give the minutes back to Amir and Ed. If it does work out, they become trade bait. Either way I think this is a prime example of a player who just needs a change of scenery and to play with motivated players and a strong-willed coach to be successful. Why not take a waiver?

Why not thuriaf ?

he is a high motor guy, even prone injury, with the minimum he could be a solid guy on practice for JV to go after.

or Magz.
solid presence, experience huslter under the rim, excellent to practice with for JV.
