What I like most about Amir is that he doesn't need the ball to be effective, and there just isn't enough of that on this team. I just don't see this team having an effective offense having 4 or 5 starters that need touches regularly on offense. If Boozer could be swapped for Bargs without including Demar than we would have 5 capable scorers in the starting lineup. Who takes all the shots? How does the ball move to keep everyone satisfied? Rudy will need his touches, and so will JV if we want him to continue to develop. I think many agree that Lowry would be more effective having a greater offensive role, and Boozer would be a go to guy in the post, thus Demar kinda gets wasted. There wouldnt be much opportunity for him offensively, at the very least. So, if we moved Demar to facilitate a Millsap type acquisition, then we would just be moving the touches and shots from the SG to the PF. Of course, it's arguable whether this move would allow for an adjustment that would benefit the whole team. Personally I don't see it because this team doesnt play a system of offense that facilitates ball movement and good shot selection, and adding a scoring PF isn;t going to change that. Also, I'd rather have an intangible type player next to JV rather than a player that demands the ball, because I want JV to become a go to post up player that demands the ball himself. I have no issues with experiencing any associated growing pains related to JV's development next season.
Furthermore, I'd like to see 2 intangible type players in the starting lineup. I'd move Demar to the bench, and have a SG that can shoot and play d to start. Demar would be a potent force off the bench, and I'd envision him getting 28+ minutes in that role.
I really feel the team needs to learn to use the talent, skills, and ability that this roster has before any "big" changes should be made. Playing an appropriate system that isn't ISO heavy, I can see this team making the playoffs as is. We were only 4 wins from Milwaukee's abysmal 8th seeded record this year. 38 wins may not be enough next year (I would bet on that), but I think this team is capable of winning more. And if you move Bargs for anything serviceable, we would be even better again.
I'd like to keep Amir as a starter, make some minor acquisitions in the off season, and see if BC and DC can keep their jobs next year.
