I've been thinking really hard about a lot of options we could pursue. There are many possibilities here, and many different roster line-ups we could come up with. But in my opinion, this could be the golden roster, and the best possible scenario over-all.
1. Make trade for Mayo
2.Trade Brandon Rush and 2nd round pick to anyone, for ANYTHING
3. Amnesty James Posey
4. Waive A.J. Price
5. Sign Carl Landry and Hilton Armstrong
6. Sign Michael Redd(preferred 1 year deal so he can prove his worth to the league)
The reason we trade brandon rush and amnesty James Posey will merely be for roster space, and a little more cap room to pick up Landry and Redd. At the same time, we get a decent sized center in Hilton Armstrong who could be a nice back-up in case one of our centers goes out with an injury.
If we went through with this, our line-up would look like:
Collison / Hill / Stephenson
Mayo / George / Redd / Hill / Stephenson / Jones
Granger / George / Jones / Redd
West / Hansbrough / Landry / Pendergraph
Hibbert / Foster / Armstrong
Our roster would be set at 15 with this line-up. Obviously some concerns are apparent, including the fact that we’d be short at the SF position, which could put a damper on our defensive abilities towards players like Lebron James, Melo, and Kevin Durant who all play at that position. Never the less, I still think we’d perform excellent with this line-up. Let's not forget, that by waiving price, we would be giving lance a little more room to improve, especially at the point guard position. Larry has faith in him, so it's time to put him out their on the court to see how he reacts.
What do you guys think? Is this a reasonable roster that you would like to have? Or more realistically, is it a roster that we have a chance to attain?
