Default and what if we don't trade ?

with our roster :
1st unit:
Lowry/DD/JJ-Fields/Bargs/Gray-Amir (depends opponant center)

2nd unit:
calderon/Fields-ross/JJ-Kleiza/Amir-Davis/JV

our second unit will our best weapon at scoring, because with JV in the middle, three will rain soon enough with 3*3s shooter outside.

our first will be more a punch onen with many attack inside and going out for jump shooter (dd-lowry-barg) or 3s(lowry-barg-fields)

with acy, magz and uzoh (for example) as our 13-15 men.

a little too young, but they are the much coachable at this stage. before they become star(system whom want to impose what they want)

we will have capspace next season before resigning our rookie contract (JJ, DD).
also if the team doesn't reach out, you have the deadline trades too improve or get more capspace. but not this summer.

what do you think about this one ?
trade or keep our young core (with lowry) ???

No need to trade just for the sake of trading, but if we do get something like Iggy/Gay/Batum and the deal is reasonable than we have to do it!

If we miss out on the Big 3 (Gay, Iggy, Batum), I think we should turn our attention towards Caron Butler. Good, solid veteran 3 that plays defense and scores the ball. Wouldn't mind giving him a look in a trade scenario.

i'd rather keep jose and have him expire next season, giving us space in a very loaded FA class. i have always been a fan of butler, but I don't believe he's worth killing flexibility. whats his contract like? how many years, how much?

2 years left on about 8 million per. Basically what Jose is making. I posted a scenario in the Trade Thread about swapping Jose for Butler, but I don't know if the Clippers would go for a straight 1 for 1 swap.

Too old and not that good
Better hold still, we have a few assets and cap space, there's bound for someone to become available at the deadline or next summer

If Philly is not playoff bound in February, we may be able to get iggy cheaper than now.

No need to rush to make it to the playoffs. A nice 9th or 10th place finish would be a good stepping stone to future success, and not chasing a SF now to get to the playoffs would allow us to hoard some cap room and sign a solid one next off-season.

With the amount of forwards on this team I would say something is coming. I just don't see Colangelo being done quite yet.

i think he will make a move, only by fact he didn't sign the rookie contract, which allow him to trade them right now. 2 rookies + Calderon + amir or davis (17-20M) that give us some asset to trade and some contract to absorb.
that lives us with lowry/DD/Fields/JJ/Bargs/Gray/JV; that should be our core, with the one we bring.

but what i mean with my question, is i'm fine with our curent roster, if that shoud stay like it is.

Caron Butler stinks.

We'd end up paying top dollar to watch him break his legs and ride the pine all year. No thanks, I'll pass.

I think you have the wrong Butler. I said Caron, not Rasual.

roster is good even too deep. many players deserve minutes, some will be disappointed
but we do need at least first round exit. too many years since last appearance andtoo many moves with future promise were made

Caron butler is crap. He's not aging well and he doesn't provide much punch anymore. Jose expiring contract is so much better than old man butler and his broken down body.

with the addition of JV this yea, the likelihood that amir's head will be in the game more consistently, and the attempt to make ed the focal point of the summer league i don't think gray will be in the rotation as often as he was last year
