    Well I was thinking today of some guys we could possibly trade for and ill list some guys I think that could be possible and would be nice pickups.

    Tracy McGrady - Here me out on this one first. Okay yes he has been injured quite a bit but he has a load of talent still and is still at superstar status and he only has one year on his contract so if he doesnt work out you will have cap room for next season...it really can be a win-win situation. Either he stays healthy and plays good and helps us or he gets injured again and we let him walk and we have cap room again next season.

    Tyson Chandler - Its no secret NO wants to dump this guy. He isnt a great low post player on offense but he is a rebounding machine and a very good shot blocker. Would be a nice defensive presence to have.

    Amare Stoudamire - PHX is in rebuild mode now and have been rumored to be trading Amare. HE would be a HUGE pickup. Seems like PHX want to get younger and not sure what all we could offer but maybe a package with Rip and Tay plus a 1st could do the deal.

    Chris Bosh - I feel he will get traded soon might not be this offseason but atleast by the trade deadline. Bosh is set to become a FA next season and he has expressed no interest in returning so it would be a smart move to dump Bosh and pickup something instead of letting him walk...to me keeping Amir and using him in a trade for Bosh or Stoudamire would have made better since than just dumping him.

    David Lee - Although he is a RFA thier is a good chance he becomes part of a sign and trade deal. Would be relatively cheaper than Boozer and put up similar numbers to Boozer last season.

    Chris Kaman - Sounds like LAC will be dumping a big guy and it seems like Kaman is the guy they may trade. They have a log jam in the front court right now. Would be a decent C to pickup and would start for us.

    If I forgot anyone feel free to list them and we can discuss him too.

    Please...no McGrady. We already went through the AI ordeal.

    I'd rather re-sign Allen Iverson and include a "no practice clause" in his contract than trade anything for T-Mac.

    T-mac is out for 20-30 games next season, Tyson is a good pick up, Amar'e is even better but PHX will want Daye, Kaman sucks, I think Bosh is your best bet.

    Is he available? He'd be a solid backup at C.

    Well, they do have Oden. If Oden has a normal year this year, then it is tough to bench one of those guys.

    Big P was a career backup. I am not sure he has enough to be a starter though. He's rebounding and blocking shots, but he's never done anything on the offensive end.

    McGrady is a taller version of Iverson with injuries.

    Bosh: Someone worth building around. It would be nice to pick up Bosh...

    Kaman: An upgrade over anyone we have down low...unless Kwame exercises his player option....lol

    Considering the fact that we just drafted the second coming of Tay and we can replace Rip through free agency, I'd say go for it. What do we have to lose. We need a premier big to build around.

    That would be nice..

    Would be hard for Utah to retain Milsap and Memo if Boozer doesn't opt-out.
