Analyzing our roster. From players we absolutely must get rid of, to players we could win with. #1) Brandon Jennings. He MUST go. A) He is terrible, terrible, terrible on defense. B) He takes too many stupid shots. C) He turns the ball over too much. D) He is stupid, and not at all the coach on the floor you need your PG to be. E) He is selfish. Cares 1000x more about himself, his stats, his agenda than the team, winning. F) He is a terrible leader, locker room cancer, and a bad influence on the team-especially the younger players. G) Doesn't strike me as a hard worker, at all. I don't want him starting. I don't want him on my bench. He is ubber-talented, though. He is young. His contract isn't atrocious. And there's no shortage of stupid GM's out there. So, I think we will be able to move him. #2) Charlie Villanueva. He MUST go. A) Again, terrible, terrible, terrible on defense. B) Totally one dimensional on offense-and it's not even a good dimension. C) Locker room cancer, loser, lazy, selfish, doesn't care, bad influence, etc. He's not worth a 4th point. He can go to Europe or sign a league-minimum deal with someone this off-season. #3) Luigi Datome. He MUST go. A) Yet again, terrible, terrible, terrible on defense. B) Again, totally one dimensional on offense-and it's not even a good dimension. C) I don't know that he's a bad dude, but he certainly doesn't bring any substantial winning attributes to the table. D) He's not going to develop into anything. He's under contract for another season. Not an un-trade-able contract. But no one will want him. Perhaps he can be thrown into a deal before walking. #4) Will Bynum. He MUST go. I actually used to love Will. His attitude. But he is A) Terrible on defense. B) He takes a ton of stupid shots. C) He's not smart--he turns the ball over a ton and makes a ton of bad decisions. D) Probably not a bad dude, but he doesn't bring a ton of winner's attributes to the table either. E) He's done developing. Not a horrible contract (one more season) that we couldn't move. But no one will want him. Maybe he can be thrown into a deal before walking after next season. #5) Jonas Jerebko. He should probably go. He used to intrigue me offensively as a potential stretch four. But no. A) He can't guard anyone. B) He's weak on the boards. C) His offensive game hasn't progressed, at all. It might even be regressing. D) Seems like an okay dude. But he's obviously not working very hard in the off-season. Pretty bad contract for one more season. No one will want him, I don't think--could be wrong? There was interest in him last season? Might be able to be included in a deal before he walks after next season. #6) Rodney Stuckey. He should probably go. I'm abandoning the A-B-C-etc. format. He can't start. He's a PG who can drive. He can't play the 2 or 3 because he can't shoot. He can't be your starting PG because he has no floor sense/intelligence and can't pass. Theoretically, he could be a dude who comes off the bench and gets you some points, almost like a Corliss. But. He still doesn't finish well enough at the rim. He's still a bad defender. He doesn't work hard in the off-seasons. He gets into crap with coaches. Bad attitude. Bad influence. Should probably go. Possibly some value remaining in a sign and trade? #7) Josh Smith. He should probably go. If he would just attack from the perimeter on offense, board, and play hard on D.. he could be a great starter. A great starter. But, he doesn't. And he probably won't. He jacks up stupid shots on O. He doesn't work hard on D. He doesn't listen to coaches. He doesn't seem to give two bleeps. Given his age and contract status, he's in a leadership role on this team--whether he likes it or not. And he's a bad influence. He should probably go. Like Jennings, ubber-talented. Potential to be great if he gets his head right. A bad contract, but not a horrible-horrible one. Plenty of stupid/optimistic GM's out there. He could be moved. #8) Greg Monroe. He should probably go. But not for anything average. He's young, 22. He's got a solid low-post game. He's a solid low-post defender against traditional fours. He's a solid rebounder. Good intangibles kid. The only reason I think he should go is that A) He has a ton of trade value. And B) There could probably be a better fit had in exchange for him. He COULD exist and be fine with 'Dre though. So, like I said--you really need to get something great in exchange for him. Kawai Leonard. Serge Ibaka. Goran Dragic. A really high pick. That's about the baseline of what I'd like to get in return for him. If you can't get it, keep him and roll with it. #9) Chauncey Billups. He's overpaid. I don't think we should pick up the option on his contract. If he wants to play another year though, fine, bring him back as your third point guard/a team leader. If he doesn't, bring him back as an assistant coach. #10) Peyton Siva. Doesn't hurt to keep him. Stash him in the D-League. See if he develops. Not optimistic that he will. Not pessimistic that he won't. #11) Josh Harrellson. I don't mind him--as a third, not second, center. Cheap. Seems fine intangibles-wise. #12) Tony Mitchell. Really love his potential. Stash him in the D-League. See if he develops. #13) Kyle Singler. Not a starter. Not a starter at all. He can't guard most NBA-starting-caliber wings. He doesn't bring enough offensively. He is solid enough on both ends, though. He's smart. Good intangibles-wise. Young. Nothing wrong with keeping him. #14) Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Don't love him. But he's young. He's shown potential as a defender. If he develops as a shooter, he could be a solid bencher, perhaps even a starter. Seems like a solid kid intangibles-wise, too. #15) Andre Drummond. He's the center piece. Any way you look at it, one of the best centers in the NBA--currently. Probably has the potential ~ alongside Anthony Davis ~ to be the best big man in the NBA. Super young. Super talented. A good kid, intangibles-wise. Great rebounder. Pretty great defender--only going to improve. Very raw offensively. Still pretty effective. Potential to be great on that end as well.
