    Although this is clearly "gray area" when it comes to adding Players in the Offseason, I want to bring over Stanko to have him fill out the Frontcourt rotation.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    That is what I was saying instead of focusing on FA I would be looking for trades.

    Being under the cap means you don't have to match the other teams salary.

    I.E. we could trade for Mayo and they would get back a trade exception.

    Realistically, what are the chances the Hawks actually let Crawford walk this off-season? I am undecided if the Pacers should really pursuit him this off-season. Yes he'd contribute to the team, but is he worth spending 6-9 million a year on and hes already in his 30s?

    Ha, as soon as I saw your name I knew you were going to say you wanted to add Barea to the wishlish.

    Would he actually do well here or is he just looking good tonight? I don't pay attention to Dallas.

    He is unrestricted and the Mavs still have to worry about signing Butler and Chandler.

    Barea would be a very nice addition.

    Earl Clark is a prospect that I like. He'll be an unrestricted free agent. I think the Pacers have showed interest in him before. Since moving to the Magic he's seriously bulked up, he looks like an NBA PF now.

    http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/...-gm-otis-smith

    Earl Clark finds new life with Orlando Magic
    May 04, 2011|By Zach McCann, Orlando Sentinel

    Earl Clark is thankful the Phoenix Suns agreed to trade him to the Orlando Magic as part of the six-player, blockbuster deal in mid-December.

    The move to Orlando might have saved his NBA career.

    Earlier this year, when the Suns declined to pick up Clark's $2 million option to keep him for the 2011-12 season — making him a free agent this summer — Clark took it personally and wondered what his NBA future would entail.

    He barely played in Phoenix, had a reputation as a not-so-hard worker and was stuck between forward positions. It appeared Clark would be competing to make an NBA squad from the end of a bench on a new team next season.

    But that all changed in December when the Suns sent Clark to the Magic in the deal that brought Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson to Orlando.

    The fresh start rejuvenated Clark, a second-year player out of Louisville.

    At the suggestion of the Magic's coaching staff, he added 10 pounds of muscle within two months of arriving in Orlando. Knowing he needed to improve offensively, he went through extra shooting drills after practices and after games. He studied lots and lots of film with Magic assistants.

    Those assertions of poor work ethic? The Magic didn't see it.

    "It's been a good experience for me, coming to a team that accepted me with open arms," said Clark, 23. "I just look forward to staying here and building it with the team."

    Clark, an unrestricted free agent, will gauge interest from other teams this summer, although he did say "I don't want to play anywhere else." Magic GM Otis Smith said he likes Clark but the two sides have not begun talks on a new contract.

    Clark has the potential to be a legitimate forward, at either spot. He now weighs almost 250 pounds and his wingspan is 7 feet, 2 inches, second on the Magic to only Dwight Howard's 7-foot-5 reach. But even with that size, Clark is still quick and athletic enough to defend opposing threes.

    Clark demonstrated his defensive ability at times this year, helping limit Kevin Durant and LeBron James to sub-par performances during the regular season. Magic coach Stan Van Gundy has said several times he believes Clark can be a "special" defender in the NBA.

    "His potential as a defensive player and as a defensive impact guy is unlimited," Van Gundy said, "if he can get down some better team defensive principles and focus and if he can truly understand that his route to being a special player in this league lies at the defensive end."

    Clark's offensive skills are still raw and he doesn't always seem to grasp the team's defensive scheme. That's what kept him on the bench in this year's playoffs.

    But with a little hard work, Clark thinks he can play next season — for some team.

    "If I come in and do what I'm supposed to do, I don't see why I'm not going to crack the rotation and play a lot of minutes," Clark said.

    This summer, Clark plans to work with Magic strength and conditioning coach Joe Rogowski, watch a lot of film, improve his jumper and make sure he knows Orlando's plays and system heading into training camp next year.

    "I want to be a great overall player, not just one-dimensional," Clark said.

    They have 7 guys signed for 65 million. Factor in the NBA Darft and filling out the roster they will be around 70 million without signing Crawford. I am sure they would love to have him back but unless he takes a big pay cut then I just don't see them paying the LT for him.

    I think he is worth it but I would look at other options like a trade for another sg who can get his own shot and close games out.

    I think we could get Earl pretty cheap but I would want a guy like Hayes over him.

    Don't see us having anything the Lakers want other than Granger and that's a maybe.

    They want to get back to contender status, I expect the only way Pau is traded is for a superstar like Howard, or a superstar point guard

    We could definitely get in and snatch Gasol or Odom in a 3 team deal with the 3rd team looking for salary cap relief. If the Magic look to trade Howard, I could see us getting involved.

    Ideally, I'd like to see two of the following players on our team next year:

    Andre Igoudala- Posey, BRush, tpe, +1st rd pick
    Tyson Chandler-free agent
    Jason Richardson- free agent
    David West-ETO
    Lamar Odom-Posey, Lance, 2 future 1sts

    Trade for Jarrett Jack (S&T McRoberts + AJ Price)

    Ideally, this is the team I'd like to see next season:

    Collison/Jack
    George/Richardson
    Granger/Jones
    West/Hansbrough
    Hibbert/Foster

    I don't think it's too far out of reach. Thoughts?

    If you're referring to the Odom and Igoudala trades, they are both proposals. I didn't mean for them to be combined. I'd rather not trade our future picks, but I couldn't care less about this years..

    I think I'd be happy with Nene, Landry and Mayo.

    Sign Nene and Landry. Trade 1st for Mayo

    I think those 3 make our team better, and still leave us with some flexibility to see what 2012 brings.

    PG: Collison, Price, Stephenson
    SG: George, Mayo (or vice versa), Rush
    SF: Granger, Dahntay Jones
    PF: Hansbrough, Landry, Posey
    C: Nene, Hibbert, Foster

    I really like the depth of that team is Hibbert is willing to come off the bench. You could say play Nene at the PF spot, but I prefer this. Hibbert can be big threat in 2nd unit, and Foster can get spot energy minutes in case of foul trouble.

    Hansbrough and Landry and hold down the PF spot, moving Nene or Foster there if needed.

    Similar wings swapping out Dunleavy for Mayo, and the same PG rotation.

    A few players can still be traded or released to make room for more moves, like backup PG if Price and Stephenson don't plan out.

    Not a bad team, and it continues to allow for future moves, while making the roster better.

    The way things are shaping up in Orlando and New Orleans, I'm at the point where I say save our capspace for 2012 unless something too-good-to-pass-up comes our way (doubtful).

    Signing either Chris Paul or Dwight Howard by themselves would likely be neigh impossible, but if we're in a position where we have the money to sign them both, I can see it happening. The incentive of them teaming up to form their own super-duo, with a solid supporting cast to boot, might be enough to bring them here.
    Dwight Howard will somehow end up as a Laker with Kobe I believe. Lakers may try to obtain him this summer via S/T.

    The way Mayo is playing right now, there is absolutely no way we're getting him for that kind of package. I'm betting OJ will not be traded this offseason.

    It would probably be in a three team trade, but I'd do it if we could keep Danny and Paul. It would cost at least DC, Roy and a future 1st, I guess.
    Then beg Chandler to come here as a FA knowing he'd pair with Gasol on the frontline, draft Reggie Jackson, and you have a gem of a team.

    Jackson - George - Granger - Gasol - Chandler

    Yeah I know, wishful thinking. But isn't this thread serving this purpose?

    I don't know much about Nene. Could he be the PF that we need (Dale Davis type) or is he strictly a center?

    What are his strengths and weakness.

    I didn't think this needed its own thread but all we are talking about are SG's and I think PF is a stronger need at this time.

    If not Nene who should we be looking at.

    Resign Foster & McBob to cost effective contracts and sign Landry. Trade Collison, Rush, and our first to Minnesota for their lottery first and draft Irving. we have our 2 stars and solid backups everywhere.
