It'll take max contract offers to get both. About 16.4m each, or 32.8m total. If we amnesty Villanueva, we'll be sitting with about 31.4m in cap space; just 1.4m short. I'm guessing that the cap will increase 1.4m on its own, and that we wouldn't have to do anything to make this happen. If it doesn't, moving V. Kravstov (1.5m salary) would be enough...though I'd much rather move Stuckey or Jerebko, if possible. After adding these two, we could go over the cap to sign our birds-right player J. Calderon. C: G. Monroe(16min).....A. Drummond(32min) PF: J. Smith(32min).....G. Monroe(16min) SF: A. Iguodala(32min).....K. Singler(16min) SG: B. Knight(16min).....K. Singler(16min).....Stuckey(16min) PG: J. Calderon(32min).....B. Knight(16min) Reserves: 1st Rd. Pick(?), J. Jerebko, V. Kravtsov, K. English/K. Middleton/2nd Rd. Pick(?)/other resignees/MLE/LLE(?) Total Minutes: Monroe(32min-C/PF), Smith(32min-PF), Iguodala(32min-SF), Calderon(32min-PG), Drummond(32min-C), Knight(32min-SG/PG), Singler(32min-SF/SG), Stuckey(16min-SG) Thoughts? It sucks giving big long contracts to Smith(27), Iguodala(29) and Calderon(31). It sucks giving max contracts to borderline top-25 players in Smith and Iguodala. But, seriously, who else are we going to get!? When are we going to get them!? The rotations work. The minutes work. The team works. That's a team that's going to (at least) get to the ECF in this weak league several times over the duration of those contracts. That's a great team.. Jose Calderon's as great a floor-general as you could hope for. He's a basketball genius. His IQ's off the charts. He's a coach on the court. He's a great team leader. He runs the fast break like an all-star. He distributes the ball like few can. He knocks down outside shots with the best of them. He's one of the best FT shooters in the league, great for closing games. And while he's not a great defender, he does give excellent effort on that end. I think he's still got 3 or 4 (or more) prime seasons left in him.. Josh Smith is a borderline top-25 NBA player. Few big men can run the court - with Calderon - like him. He's an excellent inside scorer. And he's one of the best defensive players in the league ~ A great matchup on LeBron. Andre Iguodala is a borderline top-25 NBA player. He can run the court - with Calderon - as well. He's an excellent all-around scorer. And he too is one of the best defensive players in the league ~ Another great matchup on LeBron. Greg Monroe probably is a top-25 NBA player. He's not the fast-break athlete that Smith, Iggy or Calderon is, but he brings a much needed, fundamental game to the court for when things slow down. Andre Drummond will, in all likelihood, probably be a top-10 NBA player in 2 or 3 seasons; and the game's best big man. No true big man in the league can run the court quite like him. He's going to become an above average (at least) inside scorer. He's already becoming one of the league's best interior defenders. Brandon Knight's not a top-anything. But I like what I've seen out of him as a two-guard thus far. And he's a good enough of a point guard to give Calderon a break here and there. Still very, very young. His outside shot is improving. He's getting more comfortable taking it to the hole. He's improving as a defender. He's an incredible athlete. He'll be perfect running alongside Calderon. And he appears to be quite a natural making decisions with the ball on the break.. Kyle Singler's not a top-anything either. But he is a very sound all-around player who's great in a fast-paced offense, and who won't hurt you on defense. Stuckey's Stuckey. 16 minutes or less a game is perfect for him. He can keep focused for that long (though, I'd love to trade him). Throw in a lotto pick!!
