    Amir (Brand is gone) Bayless S&T 5 million range (Williams is gone) James Johnson (Expiring) rights to Zubcic, 2013 second round pick should just about cover getting him here. With the drafting of Harkless and signing of Wright... It looks like Philly is trying to take one step back in order to take two more forward. We have the perfect collection of assets to get him. Fields as a 6th man would make my heart happy

    With Lou Williams gone and no backup PG (unless you want to count Xavier Silas), Bayless to Philly looks interesting.

    If our defense improved last year with what we had, I can only imagine how good we would be with Lowry and Iggy.

    Damn, we would have a lot of run outs.

    Yannis Koutroupis ‏@YannisHW

    Karl said he wanted to get Hamilton more time last year, but they had to win every game late and he didn't feel comfortable with him yet.

    Just spoke with Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl, he's really focusing on Jordan Hamilton here in Las Vegas.

    Denver Wings:

    Afflalo
    Gallinari
    Brewer
    Hamilton
    Quincy Miller
    Wilson Chandler


    I wonder if any are attainable?

    Denver already has Andre Miller as their backup PG to Lawson. Not sure if they would be interested in Jose. But we could swap PG's:

    Jose+Amir for Miller+Chandler?

    The bird-man is on his way out (they are thinking of amnestying him due to his off court issues). Amir could play center and is a serviceable big. Hate to see him go, but I'd swap him for Chandler.

    I said it in another thread but if Ed Davis has truly fixed his shot Amir Johnson is now expendable

    Denver has no use for Calderon:

    Starter: Lawson
    Backup: Miller (just signed for 3 years and $15M)

    I disagree

    it might be worth absorbing Calderon and the eventual cap space in order to secure someone like JJ and Amir Johnson.

    Deal might look like Miller and Chandler &TPE for Calderon JJ and Amir

    Denver gets 12m in expiring deals and great bench big

    We get 2 way wing player and one of the smartest PGs in the league (who is old enough to accept the backup role but could also start in a pinch)

    Miller just resigned with Denver two or three days ago for 3 years (didn't know that until Matt pointed it out). Not sure he can be traded now for at least 3 months. I could be wrong about that. Regardless, I doubt Denver would move him after they just resigned him.

    They'd rather have Miller than Calderon as their backup and aren't about to trade rotation player(s) or Calderon to play 3rd string. They also have no use for Amir; they have Mozgov/McGee at C and Faried/Harrington at PF. Amir would be another 3rd string player.

    He can be traded on December 15th.

    Given that Calderon is going from one situation where he is not ecstatic about backing up starter, I'm not sure how Denver would appeal to him either.

    I disagree from the Denver perspective.

    I don't think JJ is better than the starters and 2nd stringers they already have.

    I don't think Amir is that valuable with the combination of Faried and Harrington.

    I think they are happy with Miller as backup PG.

    These are just my opinions of course - take it for what it is worth.

    However, if the Raptors take back Chris Andersen suddenly something might happen with Chandler even if it is not Calderon who is heading out.

    ANdersen has been on the trade block for the last year and has $4.5M and $4.8M remaining this year and next.

    I believe Chandler's and Andersen's salary would fit in to a TPE created by a Calderon deal.

    SF would get filled but then backup PG is the new glaring hole.

    Don't think BC would be interested in Andersen (unless if he has some kind of a buyout that could make him a UFA):

    That situation is unfortunate with how the media originally reported it. I thought, "Ahhhh man, kiddie porn? You sick idiot."

    But then it turns out, apparently, the issue was a young girl and her mother tried to extort him.

    More than 24 hours after Chris "Birdman" Andersen's home was searched and property seized in an ongoing Internet crimes case against children, the Denver Nugget's legal team is suggesting he's the victim of extortion, The Denver Post and The Associated Press reported.

    Douglas County (Colo.) Sheriff's Office Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigators seized property from Andersen's home in Larkspur, about 40 miles south of Denver, on Thursday.

    But Colin Bresee, an attorney for Andersen, said in a statement that professional athletes are "routinely targeted," and that the media has speculated Andersen is a suspect rather than a victim.

    In the statement, Bresee suggested that a woman from California has attempted to get items of value from the 33-year-old basketball player, and that the woman's mother wrote in an email that she wanted him "to pay for everything on her Amazon wish list, 5K for her bedding stuff and her victoria secret wish list."

    Deputies did say they have been investigating Andersen since February 2012 on a referral from a California law-enforcement agency. The unit investigating Andersen covers child pornography, Internet luring and child predators.

    The statement:

    "A female fan in 2010 mailed Mr. Andersen multiple letters and included several photos in which she was scantily clad. Chris and this woman communicated with each other and in 2011, this woman, who represented herself as 21 years of age, flew to Colorado, showing her required identification. After leaving Colorado, she became upset at his lack of interest. In 2012, she threatened to retaliate if he did not provide financial remuneration."

    The statement ends, "Mr. Andersen has been fully cooperative with the authorities. The investigation is expected to take three weeks. We're confident it will show that Chris did not engage in any criminal conduct."

    I also forgot about their 1st round draft pick this year: Fournier.


    So that is 7 SG/SF's with 6 having guaranteed contracts.
