    Default Sleeper Targets

    I think I, and many of the other posters here, are of the mindset that this team is likely not going to acquire an established superstar/all-star type player through any sort of traditional avenues.

    If we're going to take that next step, I'm of the belief that we need to pull something like the Harden trade (whether that's a trade or signing) and get a statistical darling who explodes when given a chance to shine in a more prominent role.

    Who are some players around the league that might fit the bill, and also would be attainable either via trade or free agency?

    although Chris Kaman would be a fantastic backup center

    there have been a lot of these conversations lately, they always end up at

    Al Horford - not going anywhere

    Paul Millsap - perfect fit

    Jeff Green - great guy people generally uncertain

    Those aren't sleepers.

    How about,

    John Henson

    Brandon Wright

    Rudy Golbert

    You REALLY like this guy. I'm normally wary of tweeners, but he intrigues me too. Haven't seen a lot of him, but his numbers look great. How's his defense?

    Nick Batum in 2016.

    He is course past the sleeper status but will be available in 2016. A good plan B if KD is unavailable.

    I think Harrison Barnes has a few more gears in him

    Rudy Gobert will likely stay in Utah but that would free up one of Favors or Kanter

    BWright for 2Pat would be the only deal that makes sense for both sides. Would you do it?

    I think Ersan can still be good as well in the right environment; could do 2Pats work admirably I bet.

    Every time he gets the ball on offence he is going to shoot. Which is fine on the Magic, but I don't think he would be good on a playoff team where he isn't a primary or even secondary option. This is just from what I've seen and I try to follow the magic for dipo and the rookies

    Also, i'm not sure about getting a prospect mid-season. I'd say unless there is a possibility which is too good to pass up, the Raps should stand pat.
