why would anyone want either boozer or west in our team?....want to see how players decline after their prime?
Of course every player slows down with age but surely you dont expect that if the Raps acquire either of these two next season, that from 15/9 and 18/8 theyll decline to 5/5 within the next 2 or 3 seasons, or are you? If yes then you do have a point. But IMO, highly unlikely.
And the good thing is these two are playing between 31-33 mins this season, which gives their next teams a bit of a break since their not as heavy minute guys as they used to be.

Hmm, so if we were to sign and trade for Landry and we gave up a package built around Bargnani, we would have to take on a contract like Biedrins too? I would not really be against something like that seeing that his last season with that contract is 2013-2014, and he is a 9 mil expiring contract. And, for that one season, he would back up JV...or maybe back up Gray...
Landry as a backup 4, yeah i wouldn't mind. But as a starter? NO WAY!
First Johnson and now Landry. Is Bryan trying to fill a team with similar names?
I bet he will offer him Kleiza money. 4 years / 18.8M is what Kleiza got. Landry will be looking for a long term deal for that kind of money.. and Bryan won't hesitate.
Again, if they're going after Landry, it's likely because they can't acquire someone they'd prefer as a target. Sometimes that's a blessing in disguise with BC.
Honestly. If any of you were Golden State Warriors. Would you not want to play for them? Maybe he is a cash stingy player? But honestly there are few better places to be at the moment. BTW I'd love him here either backing up Johnson or being backed up by him. Don't care
Well, there are not really a lot of options:
Josh Smith, David West, Paul Milsap, Boris Diaw, J.J. Hickson & Carl Landry
I think Carl Landry is a 3rd big off the bench but I would say he's more offensively skilled than Amir. Whereas, Amir is a better defender and rim presence.
Rebounding wise, I think it's a wash.
If we sign him for the MLE, that would be a good signing relative to the Kleiza & Kapono signing. He would be a veteran piece that we can use.
But my preference remains in signing David West, via sign and trade.

I just feel that our rebounding wont improve with Carl Landry.
The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!
Shot charts for he and Boozer.....
Landry clearly has less usage...but he finishes a lot near the basket, where th bulk of his attempts are. He is also pretty efficient in the midrange areas as a decent shooter.
Rebounding per 36 numbers for a bunch of PFs some of whom might be moving
Amir (for fun) 9.4
Gasol 8.6 (and very hard to know without seeing him play again how effective he'll be next season)
I believe he can be signed and traded but it would be for no more than 120% of his previous salary ($4.8M starting per year).
89. Can a free agent be signed and immediately traded?
There is a rule that allows teams to re-sign their own free agents for trading purposes, called the sign-and-trade rule. Under this rule the player is re-signed and immediately traded to another team. This is done by adding a clause to the contract stipulating that the contract is null and void if the trade to the specific team is not completed within 48 hours. To qualify for a sign-and-trade, all of the following must be true:
The player must re-sign with his prior team -- a team cannot include another team's free agent in a sign-and-trade.
The player must finish the preceding season with that team (deals are no longer allowed that sign-and-trade players who are out of the league, such as the sign-and-trade that sent Keith Van Horn from Dallas to New Jersey as part of the Jason Kidd trade in 2008).
The player cannot be a restricted free agent who has signed an offer sheet with another team (see question number 43).
Starting in 2013-14, the team receiving the player cannot be above the "apron" ($4 million above the tax level) after the trade1, 2.
Starting in 2013-14, the team cannot receive a player in a sign-and-trade if they have used the Taxpayer Mid-Level exception (see question number 25) that season.1
The trade must be completed prior to the first game of the regular season (sign-and-trades are not allowed once the season begins).
The player cannot be signed using the Non-Taxpayer Mid-Level exception, the Taxpayer Mid-Level exception, or any exception that cannot be used to offer a three-year contract (see question number 25).25.
NON-BIRD EXCEPTION -- This is also a component of the Veteran Free Agent exception. Its name is somewhat of a misnomer, since Non-Bird really is a form of Bird rights. Players who qualify for this exception are called "Non-Qualifying Veteran Free Agents" in the CBA. They are veteran free agents who are neither Qualifying Veteran Free Agents nor Early Qualifying Veteran Free Agents, and include the following:
Players who finished the season with a given team, who have played no more than one season without clearing waivers or changing teams as a free agent.
Players who were Early Bird free agents, but whose team renounced its right to use the Early Bird exception to re-sign the player.
Players who were to be Larry Bird or Early Bird free agents, were playing on one-year contracts, and were traded mid-season.
This exception allows a team to re-sign its own free agent to a salary starting at up to 120% of his salary in the previous season2 (not over the maximum salary, of course), 120% of the minimum salary, or the amount needed to tender a qualifying offer (if the player is a restricted free agent -- see question number 43), whichever is greater. Raises are limited to 4.5% of the salary in the first year of the contract, and contracts are limited to four seasons when this exception is used.
A partial season counts as a full season for the tenure calculation related to Bird rights. If a team signs another team's free agent to a rest-of-season contract mid-way through the season, then at the end of that season the player is a non-Bird free agent.
Starting January 10 of each season, this exception begins to reduce in value. See question number 26 for details.

Ah yes, it seems you're right. I totally forgot about the non-bird exception.
So then the next question would be matching salary. Something like Landry + Rush for Bargnani might work. And Rush takes the role of injured-for-pretty-much-the-whole-season wing player, which will be left vacant after we amnesty Kleiza. But you never know, maybe Rush gets healthy, in which case he's a tolerable one year contract.
My guess is that the Warriors value their massive 2014 cap space to much too take on a big contract that runs to summer of 2015. But you never know.

I wouldn't mind Landry but I want us to pursue elton brand as well. He's the type of veteran big we need
