Default SF?

So, the raps have made some decent additions. 4 rotation players have been added: Fields, Lowry, JonasV + Ross. Acy is a possible/probable 5/6th big.

At SF there is JJ, LKZ, Fields (although he's more of a SG) and Ross (although I think he'd look much better at SG). With more depth at SG, DD doesn't look so safe. DD also is going to want an extension soon enough. So, should the raps make a 2 for 1 deal or 3 for 1 deal to get a decent starting SF?

I think one of Amir or ED will be dealt. one of Jose or JB will not be here next season. JJ and DD could be dealt as well. What type of SF could DD, JJ and ED fetch (for example)?

As Jimmy McMillan says, let the debate begin! (well, it was not really him and this is not a debate but I just wanted to be dramatic).

(Also: SNL: GOP 2012 Undeclared Candidates Debate | Video Cafe - the let the debate begin is near the end of the video clip)

1. Iggy

2. Gay / somewhat impossible

3. Fields will start which isnt to bad IMO. Derozan/Ross can play aswell in a rotation. Derozan's bulking up which is good, he needs some meet on him, so does ross

I guess my question is, is it realistic to say that the 76ers are willing to trade Iggy? They barely made the playoffs last year due to a collapse but during they did well. Not to mention they're in our division...

I haven't seen any sources or tweets since before/during the finals ish saying there was a possibility of him being traded.

That being said I like the way Iggy fits in here more than Gay, especially with Lowry so whatever it takes to get him of Demar, Caldy, Ed, Amir, JJ, Kleiza I am so down with it.
(I'd love to hang on to Derozan but to get someone good you need to give up something good).

I have a feeling that JJ, Kleiza, and either Ed or Amir will be traded. we've been eyeing Gay for some time now, so maybe something big will happen this off season?

Will be looking at something along the lines of

SG - DD/Ross (alternating role)
SF - Fields/JJ (alternating role)

with the current roster the way it is, its not a bad idea startign fields,

he is a glue guy, plus the fact that andrea and derozan like to score te ball so it make it a more balanced starting unit

Man this is an awesome position to be in!

We have Jose,JJ,Demar,Kleiza,Ed,Amir as trading chips. I really don't want to lose Demar.. so I'd think Jose+ one of Amir/Ed would be sufficient for a starting SF.. Gay/Iggy/Batum please BC!! we know you read these forums

Lowry and Iggy would make us a very good defensively on the perimeter. Also like AK47. The Raps aren't exactly the sultans of swat - Kirilenko could bolster our rim protection (yes, I still think he's capable of blocking shots and guarding 3s. And the ability to play the 4 is a bonus. Plus, his distance shooting has steadily improved over the last couple seasons). Rush ain't a bad option either - good shooter, defender that should come cheap.

maybe Granger? I know Indy values him greatly but I know they'd love to play George at his preferred position. Granger + Bargs = a lot of offense. Lowry, Ross, and JonasV just have to focus on their strengths. a combination of Jose, DD, JJ and ED would be the pieces that would have to be involved (at the very least 2 of them), maybe JB too in a S+T.

Iggy would be ideal though but is harder to attain (arguably). Definitely a giant depth for starter move could be made to get him here.

Batum has agreed to a deal with the T-Wolves.

I can't see BC trading away DeRozan. He's too high on him. He always says something positive about him and talks about him being a future part of the organization. If they do end up trading for an SF, I think Ross is more likely to go.

best way now to improve the team is through trade, the pieces have aren't that bad, all those guys can player, there all good role players that any team could use, a team going for a championship, or playoffs

If we do a Rudy Gay trade wish we could get Tony Allen with him. His defensive prowess combined with Casey's defensive schemes would make for a solid backcourt with Lowry. But don't see Memphis including the NBA All-defensive first team Allen. We already have DeRozan/Fields/Ross as well.

James Johnson is the same, or even better as him, he shoots threes, James get to the rim, and is a better prospect.
