I think BC should try to buy low on an SF. Wilson Chandler should be a good pick up. Decent contract and under club control for a number of years. We have the piece(s) to get it done.
Chandler wanted to get signed with a 9mil/year contract last season so we passed on him. James Johnson was decent for us last season and it now in the doghouse with the Kings

But BC sure loves to have a PG combo and it never seemed to work out. Jose has always been the one who stayed, and now it looks like Lowry may be the one pouting coming off the bench.

It does suck that Barbosa only netted us a 2nd rounder after all the hype with his expiring contract from BC

I would have taken a 2nd rounder straight up for Turkoglu so overall it doesn't bother me. That's about right for an expiring (barbosa) anyway, plus BC didn't want to add money to our cap situation, which in turn went to Landry Fields. lol

And we traded Barbosa for the second round pick that led to Tomislav Zubcic. He's the last hope.

Good thing we passed up on him at that time. He was asking for way too much money. Massai brought him down a few notches.

If BC was smart he would've dealt LB for a longer deal/contract and a first round pick. He didn't want to take on any salary at all and in that case the 2nd round pick was really all that was out there.

Lowry and Bargnani for a stud 3..... or the draft picks to get it done.
+1
Look at Fields' contract vs. Anderson's... It was one of the worst in BC's era.

We should have done that. Cavs did something similar in taking in Luke Walton's contract though Sessions was a bit more valuable at the time. They got a pick for taking back Walton as well. Eventually packaged that pick and another one to move up to draft Zeller.
