    Default BesT Possibe Move For NexT YeaR

    PG: Jose Calderon
    SG: DeMar DeRozan
    SF: Upgrade in the offseason
    PF: Amir Johnson
    C: Ed Davis

    Keep: Reggie Evans, James Johnson ...
    Trade: Leandro Barbosa, Sonny Weems, Linas Kleiza (doubt its possible) and Andrea Bargnani (I am Italian and a HUGE fan but we can not win with him as a starter ... if we can get a 1st round pick or a good young player make it happen).

    The rest are cheap players that we can do whatever with.

    We will have a decent draft pick this year and with those moves we would have some cash to spend.

    People keep saying Ed and Amir are too short to play center. These are the top 5 rebounding centers in the league:
    1) Dwight Howard 6'11
    2) Emeka Okafor 6'10
    3) Al Jefferson 6'10
    4) Al Horford 6'10
    5) David Lee 6'9

    Ed Davis is 6'10
    Amir Johnson 6'9

    Please explain yourself now ...

    That is just Awful.
    Did you even watch the game tonight ?
    Did you see how redundant is Amir's game with respect to Ed ?
    Did you see how manhandled Amir was due to his size when matching up in the center position ?
    Why do you want to force Amir into C when his natural position is PF and he is clearly too undersized for center position which will create match up issues with us ?


    We need to MOVE Amir since we got Ed now and use the money we are paying him and ... to get a decent SF and move James Johnson to bench where he belongs.

    Amir isn't 100% right now.

    Amir and Ed are both way to light to play center but I agree with your who to keep list. I'd look at either getting another pick to take a guy like Valciunas or Kanter or try to sign Marc Gasol.

    Ed Davis is 215 pounds and will fill into his frame ... you think Barg will ever be able to reb better??? If Ed hits the weight room and eats the right foods there is no reason he can't get to 250 pounds.

    Best possible move is to get lucky and draft Kyrie Irving. Then, it would be to move Calderon along with some of our other players for either a SF or defensive Centre. It would also be nice to sign Marc Gasol but I don't think Memphis will let him go. If there's a decent deal on the table for Andrea, trade him too.

    The best possible move to help us next year would be for Bill Simmons to be hired as our new GM. Tell me that wouldn't be awesome?

    Why would you move Amir who will be a great player coming off the bench when this team gets good in a few years, his energy and leadership is more of what this team needs. and Johnson will go to the bench, but for now he should be on the court because he has been one of there better players over the last few weeks.
