    You forgot John Crotty. ed:

    I wouldn't mind having....

    Jamal Crawford [doubt it]
    Chris Andersen
    Quentin Richardson [doubt it]
    Stromile Swift
    Rafer Aston [great energy and offense]
    Trenton Hassell [I wanted him last offseason]
    Fred Hoiberg [two Freddies! Whoo!]
    Brent Barry [after an offseason filled with rumours of us trading Ronnie for him]
    Hedo Turkoglu [if only to keep him from hitting game-tying threes on us]

    And any of the option players, minus Horry and Potapenko.

    According to that Orlando article http://www.floridatoday.com/!NEWSROOM/sportstoryS0602MAGIC.htm

    "Golden State is about to lose center Erick Dampier in free agency..."

    Could you imagine Dampier here again!!! That would be a formidable frontline.

    He'll probably go to somewhere that can afford him, but its nice to dream.

    Oh lord , I hope Unclebuck doesn't see your Dampier comment

    I don't think damps is all that , Jeff Foster is Fine , He just needs to fine tune his game alittle , I think Jeff Could Be Better than Rik Smits if he works at it. , our biggest needs are SG , Backup PG

    I'm fine with AJ in backup PG.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Yeah, I'm happy with Jeff. I wouldn't mind having another big body [somebody like Pollard, but somebody who plays], but strengthening the guard positions is the priority.

    He's not too bad. I'd like somebody who can get the offense moving a little more, so there's not as much of a dropoff when Tins goes out. Maybe AJ can get better at that, he did a decent job this series.

    And I really, really want Jamison to play more.

    In any case...

    Blount is on the extended list.... I forgot about him because I always confuse him with the other guy named Blount who used to play basketball (cory?)..

    True. I am not convinced Brewer is any good.

    The other Blount was Cory.

    I'd like to see Brewer get more time, because whenever he played this season, he played with a kind of energy and hustle that guys like Darrell Armstrong and Haywoode Workman used to play with.

    True, but I can't see any other teams being interested enough for him to leave. I predict he'll be on our training camp team, and make the roster again this year.

    Man, I just hate the fact that we're talking about this. Blah!!!! I guess it's that time of year though. Not trying to hijack, just sad that we're back to this point in the season. Oh well at least it's June this time.

    Bob Sura
    Marquis Daniels
    Rodney White
    Damon Jones
    Brent Barry
    Etan Thomas

    Any of these guys would be OK by me.

    I've been a big fan of Andersen's since he came into the league, he is my favorite non-Pacer, so of course, it will never happen.

    I wouldn't mind getting Stepania from the Blazers either.

    Actually priorities are:

    1. SG
    2. Improve C if available
    3. PG

    These could change if a large trade were made, wiping ouit depth at SF, for example. In that case we would probably be satisfying a need at SG or C and thus would have to immediately shift attention to plugging the hole left at SF.

    I would too - and then by the mid-season trading deadline look to see if Foster has improved his jumper...b/c that is what we need. If not...maybe look for a C who has that shot in his repetoire.
