Some really good names in there, and attainable good names :D But we're not going to get something for nothing, unfortunately, it's going to take Al, Ron, etc.

And Brent Barry, Seattle, who can play PG and SG. A free agent who is an excellent perimeter shooter and decent passer.

Here's my top-11, and what I think we'd have to give up to get them. And Im not even gonna mention JO because he's untouchable in my book.

Joe Johnson Phoenix Suns - Harrington or Bender +filler could get him
Richard Hamilton Detroit Pistons - Probably nothing but theres others I likemore so its ok.
Allen Iverson Philadelphia 76ers - Nothing short of Artest , I wouldnt do it so there goes AI.
Jason Richardson Golden State Warriors - Harrington or Bender +filler could get him
Quentin Richardson Los Angeles Clippers - Harrington or Bender could get him, or via FA
Bonzi Wells Memphis Grizzlies - Harrington or Bender should be enough
Ray Allen Seattle SuperSonics - Probably nothing short of Artest....maybe Harrington+others
Kobe Bryant Los Angeles Lakers - Unattainable
Tracy McGrady Orlando Magic - Almost certain he'd be unattainable without giving up Artest...though if we could somehow get him without giving up either of them I'd be ecstatic and we'd be unbeatable
Paul Pierce Boston Celtics - Not sure if we could get him without giving up Artest...I definantly wouldn't trade Artest for him though
Michael Redd Milwaukee Bucks - Would be tough to get him without giving up Artest...but I could see Harrington or Bender + a little more getting him...would LOVE that....as a matter of fact Redd is the best attainable SG we could maybe get without giving up Artest...and he'd fit in PEREFECTLY with this team..

I think two years ago it may have been possible to get Redd for Harrington but now he's almost untouchable as far as Milwaukee is concerned. It would take more than Al + bits to get him. They might ask for Artest in fact.

Allen or Redd would be the best fit in my book (not considering what it would take to get them). Wells also (in that he can slash, get to the line and has some absolutely lights out games from the outside), but I'm not sure how I feel about him as far as team chemistry goes.

Joe Johnson is an intriguing one though. Might be worth taking a chance on if the asking price isn't ridiculously high. Word is Phoenix has decided that Barbosa is more of a SG than PG so who knows? Maybe they believe he is their future at the 2 (although they'd be fools to not make a pitch to a certain Laker).

This is all hypothetical of course ;)

There's no way to get Redd for Harrington even if it were possible...salaries are too f'ed up.

Here's an interesting trade I worked out using RealGM trade checker:
Indiana trades:
SG Fred Jones
SF Al Harrington
Indiana receives:
SG Joe Johnson
PG Howard Eisley
I know Pheonix is trying desperately to save up cash to get Kobe and I think this could help....they get 2 nice young players..if they get rid of Marion, Harrington could start...or he could backup both Marion and Stoudemire..and they get rid of Eisleys contract which is HORRIBLE...but woul dbe ok on the Pacers because JJ's contract is nice and offsets it...plus Eisley could be an effective backup for Jamaal so it wouldnt be a complete waste.
