    Default Amnesty Amir Johnson and Pick up Elton Brand

    Amir Johnson is just crap and bad contract we should get rid of.


    In the case for Elton, he is 33 yrs and getting old but giving him 20 min a game he can provide relief for Barg. In addition, Elton can put up 10-14 pts and grab six rebounds on night to night basic. Where Amir is great for two games next 10, he is now where to be found.

    Brand > Amir no doubt, I don't think anyone would argue that. The problem with this is that Brand would be likely asking for far too much money and would be backing up Bargs. Chances are he isn't ready to be a backup yet. If by some stroke of God he settled for a reasonable salary and was ok with being the first guy off the bench, this would be great. Not gonna happen.

    Amir has been on the team for the last 3 yrs he has done nothing to earn that kind of money.

    Just look at the stat and compare the two

    Will likely need to add a bit more to that response if you actually want people to take you serious around here ... just a suggestion.

    I'd be curious as to what you think a 33 year old Elton Brand can do on the floor, that a 24 year old Amir couldn't? Considering neither would be starting.

    Elton Brand may be a veteran, but giving up a young, athletic power forward who does the same things, plus shot blocking is highly unlikely. Amir is a high motor player, he runs the floor, sets good screens, blocks shots, rebounds, and can actually make the odd jumper, and odd drive to the hoop.

    I like Brand, but at this point, if we had to get rid of the log jam at power forward, it would be via trades, and acquiring more assets used as trade chips and so on and so on. Brand is no sure fire signing, and amnestying a solid rotational big is not too bright. Sure money is cleared up for more moves, but free agency this free agency class isn't too strong.

    I am not interested in amnestying Amir, however picking up Brand may not be a bad idea. Perhaps relinguishing the Q offer to Bayless was made in an effort to keep our options open. I do not think we are finished making moves yet and another asset is another asset. i don't think we have anything to lose by putting in a bid. But my guess is he lands in Dallas

    With him getting paid by Philly, the amount we pay won't matter, just where he wants to go (assuming he clears waivers). Am I correct in this? He would be a good pickup though, could help teach professionalism.

    We need scorer Elton can do that and Amir the crap cannot do that for us. Move Ed to center to help JV and trade Linas or JJ to get true SF.

    starting lineup

    PG Lowry, Jose
    SG DD, TR
    SF ?, Laudry ---- Linas or JJ trade both
    PF Barg, Elton,ACY
    C JV, ED, Mr Gray

    This a real playoff team

    He goes to the highest bidder. (I believe it is a sealed bid) The team must have cap space, so their will be limited teams available to put a bid in.

    Amir taking passes from Jose will be a major part of the second unit. Amir will earn his paycheck. No need to amnesty his contract...it ain't that bad.
