    Toronto and Amir Johnson have already agreed in principle to a new contract...I believe it is like 4 years, $34 million or something like that. Something huge for him.

    I would love to get either Horford or Landry, though. I believe either of them would be great next to Hibbert down low.

    Yeah, I like Horford a lot but with his restricted FA, I'm matching anything if I'm Atlanta.

    I don't disagree about them matching anything he is offered. I would too if I were them, but what kind of cap situation are they going to be looking at with Smith, Williams, Johnson, and Horford making as much as they do. Somebody's gotta give, so either Josh Smith is traded or Horford they let go or they pay the LT for the first two years of Horford's deal. Depends on the owner to be honest. They still need a real center and they have a glut of wings. I could also see them trying to trade Marvin Williams who is an excellent defender and has a seemingly reasonable contract.

    For this team? I actually like AK47 the best, and we likely wouldn't have to grossly overpay to get him.

    I would go after Horford. We would have to throw a lot of money (which we'll have in 2011) to pry him away from ATL. The Hawks have spent a lot of money on Johnson and Smith, so I dont know how much theyre willing to pay Horford.

    I would offer Horford something in the ball park of 5 years $55 million...I dont think ATL would be able to match that

    Depends really on how extreme the changes in the next CBA will be.

    If the Kings keep Landry, doesn't that make Jason Thompson expendable? They drafted Cousins/Whiteside and traded for Dalembert (though I know it was mainly because he's expiring). He somewhat fits the "4 with Roy/5 with Tyler" bill.

    It will take the max to get Horford. Every team in the NBA would be lining up to get Horford at $55 million over 5 years.

    I think either Thompson or Landry would be expendable, but they look like they might have a good rotation if Cousins and Whiteside pan out.

    PF: Landry/Thompson
    C: Cousins/Whiteside

    I would take and start either Thompson or Landry.

    Yeah, he's pretty frail, but for the likely cost and fit for the team, I like him the best of the bunch. I wouldn't be opposed to us trading Murphy+filler for him this year to give him a test run. He doesn't shoot well enough for Obie's system, but he does some Josh Smith types of things. Good athlete, good at roaming around and blocking shots and poking his arms into passing lanes for steals.

    I like Kirilenko also. He's also much better as a PF than as an SF like Utah plays him. Interesting comparison to Josh Smith, though. Kirilenko is incredibly sound fundamentally and has a nice traditional post game. He goes about things totally differently than Smith, but the effect is about the same.

    Landry is unrestricted, so Sac can match the offer, but he can choose wherever he ends up...

    The maximum under the current CBA for a player under 6 years is $9 million or 25% of the salary cap, whichever is greater, the latter being $14.5 mill. What the rules will be after the next CBA, who knows? But it will prolly be similar.

    With Landry's ties to the area, he might choose the Pacers, especially if the offer is right...

    So what would you offer if you're the Pacers?

    Landry would be a great pick up. He's a good player and would fit with RoyRoy well. And, obviously, having a hometown boy that's actually worth a darn would be great PR (unlike drafting Gordon Hayward would've been ). I don't know what kind of $$ he's going to be after, but we'll certainly have the cap space to sign him, especially considering the "home team advantage" that we might have.

    If our lineup could look like this:

    Mystical PG of the future
    Rush/George
    Granger
    Landry
    Hibbert

    I think we'd certainly be looking at a young, promising, 7th seed team, and likely better than that if we could find a real coach to go with it.

    having spoken to Andrew bogut last summer in the off season i asked who he would want as a pf and the one player who he said he would want is no other than Carl Landry and this is before even Landry sort of made a name for him self. he mentioned that Carl plays so hard and bangs so hard and that he really makes the game difficult or easier if he was on your team, so ever since then i have been paying closer attention to him and realize that Houston made a big mistake in trading him . i would love the pacers to pik him and i think he would make a huge difference sort of like dale.d with a better shot

    Yes, I'm aware of that. But it's irrelevant. Eric Gordon woulda been a
    'hometown boy'. Landry is not.

    Sorry, I'm NOT a Purdue fan (though I'd say the same if he was an
    ex-IU Player).

    I didn't know he was from Milwaukee, just that he went to Purdue. I guess I assumed he was from Indiana as well.

    OK, so we don't have a "home team advantage" to sign him, unless he really liked his time at Purdue. But, he'd still be a great PR move because people know he went to Purdue, and he's a darn good player.

    Thanks for correcting me on that, btw.
