    Hey MMJD. I haven't been around either lately. Trying to catch up on all the news.
    I like trading for Calderon, but your starting 5 I don't like so much. None of those guys can create their own offense, which puts a lot of pressure on PG play. Teams would figure out pretty quickly that if you can shut down the PG, you shut down the offense. Calderon would see plenty of double-teams to get the ball out of his hands and then who creates after that?
    Rip is a TO machine handling the ball. Marion can't do a thing 1-on-1. Camby is a jump-shooter and Maxiell is not consistent enough.

    So while I'm really high on Calderon, I think we still need some other guys who can get their own as well. I haven't taken any time to think of some trades yet. I'll have a look.

    I think its the girl that has been 'doctored', not the photo.

    What if we just traded Sheeds minutes with Amirs brain and Lindsey's diet pills and Rips legs. Then you got something!!! (maniacal cackle...)

    There is no point to even talking about Calderon, Toronto has already said they will match any deal for him. B.C. view him as his new Nash and I don't neccessarily think he is wrong.

    I'd also ask for right to swap 1st or 2nd rounders next year.

    Going with the idiot Drew Sharp's theme.

    Balkman and his insane energy can backup Tay.

    NYK does this just to get halfway out of cap hell.

    This also helps clear out out our Glut of 4's.

    I would be all for this if Joe could pull it off. I don't think Randolph would be the ideal candidate to bring in but if we could get Lee with him, I'd take the deal.

    I'd want either Brand or Camby.
    Camby can give us the defense that we need and the boards.

    Kaman would be a great pick-up. Central Michigans own! Last year was a break-out year for him.......expect more to come!

    Kaman would be a great adition to the roster,clippers are watching one PG,we offer him one all star CB in exchangue. Our team keep the core intact tradind ona valuated player(for present) and we have a 25 years player who give boards and points in the zone.
    We keep motivated Mcdyess as sixth man,tay is not necesary to sacrifice for a big man.
    We could trade Sheed for one draft pick + one PG behind Stuckey or SF behind Tay.(This seasson Tay is the player with more minutes,in boston series his energy would be better if he had one stuckey/affalo(level player) behind.
