A potential trade I was looking at would be to ship Murph (10.1 mil), TInsley (6.8 mil), and our Round 2 pick to Chicago for Hinrich (10 mil), Tim Thomas (6 Mil), and the 16 pick in the first round (approx 1.6 mil). The draft doesn't really show me a PF worth taking a shot on at 13 so I figured we could take the best available player at 13 and then draft a PF at 16. These two picks could look something like Terrance Williams at 13 and then Dejuan Blair, Earl Clark, or James Johnson at 16 depending on who is available. We would then need to sign a low salary big or two to plug into the roster. With these picks the roster would look something like this.
Guards- Ford, Hinrich, Diener
Wings- Granger, Rush, Williams, Thomas
Bigs- Hibbert, Blair, McRoberts, veteran signings
I know Murph was our second best player last year, but I think this is prime time to trade him while he still has value. Hinrich could fill the void of Jack leaving, Thomas is a respectable guy to throw out there for 10 minutes a night in a run and gun offense, and we would finally get rid of Tinsley eating cap space. It would also save us a little cash. The only downfall is that it would leave us a little shallow at PF and Center so we would have to sign some veterans that could eat up minutes. It would also force us to play Granger at PF with Rush at the 3 along with one of the guards. Let me know what you think.
