    He is an upgrade over Young, he can play D and make shots but he also makes low basketball IQ plays at times, I like him but I would try to get somebody else, they should look to make a trade or something.
    I agree, but who would we trade/trade for? I think it's clear we are keeping Hill, George, West, Hibbert together. Then our bench is not very enticing if we're looking for a legit replacement while Danny is gone.

    I guess I could see us trading a core piece later on in the season if we are really, really struggling.

    If that happens then you can assume big things in the offseason. Donnie doesn't really make moves in the middle of the year. Plus, just don't know who you'd be able to get that would make a noticeable enough difference to make it worth breaking up one of the most promising cores in the NBA.

    If we really go into the tank, I could see us trading D.West and his expiring to another team for either a draft pick, another young player, etc.

    I just like the fact that the Pacers are looking.

    How's about JaJuan Johnson? Obviously he's more of a 4 but he's got range on his shot and seemed like actually might be able to score at a reasonable clip, even in the NBA.

    A little surprised at the # of Delonte West suggestions in the thread. I'm usually the last person to insist on "high-character players" but Delonte is, to put it harshly, a little insane.

    Uh, what about the Jalen Rose trade too? Walsh has made mid season deals on more than one occasion in his career.

    Micheal Pietrus at the time of the Murphy, Dunlevy and Diogu trade was a player Walsh and Bird asked for but the Warriors were intrigued by his upside. That said Walsh and Pritchard checking on him comes as no surprise.

    Wasn't Josh Howard one of the FA options that KP/Walsh were looking at during this offseason?

    He has always had some off-court issues....but if it was a great concern...would KP/Walsh have looked into him in the first place?

    Josh Howard never seemed to me to be a solid scorer, but more of an athlete, all around player. We have enough of those.

    Maybe we can trade Ian and get a guy like Dahntay Jones from the Mavs. I think he'd look good in the Blue n Gold.

    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    If we sign Delonte, I think it should be to purely whisper sweet nothings into Lebron's ear in the playoffs

    would fit the bill nicely. Get it done KP!

    Edit: he played well in NY when Walsh was there.

    I'd rather give Terrence Williams a try......I know there there is some issue with him...but I'd love to have a Playmaker like him on the Team.

    Wilson Chandler has played worse than Gerald Green has thus far this season.

    After considering what's out there, I think Lance breaking out is our best chance.

    I agree.

    I think if we start Lance and tell him "here's your chance to show you can be a starter" we would get some good Lance (ala Bobcats) and some bad Lance, but it'd be nice to see what he'd be able to do when given the same opportunities that Paul has been given.

    Would it be cheaper to just get him courtside seats for the playoffs?
