    Signing Deron Washington to a guaranteed contract. Hmm...

    C: K. Brown, ???
    PF: C. Villanueva, J. Maxiel
    SF: T. Prince, A. Daye, W. Sharpe, D. Washington
    SG: R. Hamilton, B. Gordon, A. Afflalo
    PG: R. Stuckey, W. Bynum

    Looking at our depth at the three and two...it doesn't make much sense that we signed D. Washington to our pro roster...does it!? It could be the big Hamilton for Bosh trade, but I'm going to go ahead and guess that its the Kwame/Max/Sharpe or Afflalo or Deron for Chandler.

    C: T. Chandler, ???
    PF: C. Villanueva, ???
    SF: T. Prince, A. Daye
    SG: R. Hamilton, B. Gordon
    PG: R. Stuckey, W. Bynum

    still gonna need some front-court help, but man, that could be a nice little squad couldn't it?

    It makes sense! This is going to get very interesting, no doubt. What Chandler gives up on offense he can surely help defensively with his rebounding and shot blocking.

    This is what Mlive article actually discussed - signing these small contracts for the trade purposes. Joe is trying as he knows that the current roster has no chance to make any noise in the playoffs.

    According to the Need4Sheed website:
    " I’ve been informed that there is a 30 day waiting period when you sign a second-round pick before that player can be traded.”

    If that's true then we have to wait some before we see anything happening.

    We don't have to do all that to get Chandler. We are $4M under the cap all we have to send New Orleans in salary to get Chandler is $7.85M, we already have more than that in Max+Kwame=$9.1M; unless of course Joe is trying to accomodate Antonio McDyess also. Upfront we'd have Chandler/CharlieV/Dyess.

    that'd make sense as well...as the alleged max/kwame 4 tyson trade would leave us really short on bigs!!

    C: T. Chandler, A. McDyess
    PF: C. Villanueva, A. McDyess
    SF: T. Prince, A. Daye, W. Sharpe
    SG: R. Hamilton, B. Gordon, A. Afflalo
    PG: R. Stuckey, W. Bynum

    Way to go out on a limb with that prediction.

    Unless we're keeping Keeping Brown & trading Max and signing Washington to fill the gap for us to get Chandler. We'd be rignt at the cap. I think we should then trade Rip. for a Center, role players. I want Villanueva & Gordon to be starters next year.

    I still would love to do a 3 team trade with New York & Houston. Rip, draft rights to Summers & Eddy Curry to Houston, Tracy Mcgrady to New York, Joey Dorsey, Wilson Chandler & Houston 1st round pick. New York would save the money, Houston would have a whole team again & We'd get a 1st rounder, good young small forward, a power forward with amir's upside :) & capspace.
