Forgot to mention this is for this upcoming unrestricted FA

 

PG

Devin Harris - 6'3 - Hawks

DJ Augustine - 6'0

 

SG

Nick Young - 6'7 (Roots in LA, good fit) - 76ers

JJ Redick - 6'4 - Bucks

OJ Mayo - 6'4 - Mavs

 

SF

Wesley Johnson - 6'7 - Suns

Kyle Korver - 6'7 - Hawks

 

PF

JJ Hickson - 6'9 - Blazers

Marreese Speights - 6'10 - Cavs

 

Out of these guys and if we do not retain Earl Clark

 

I really hope to see Speights (hes a very servicable big that doesn't mind coming off the bench.

 

Wesley Johnson I was always a big fan of, he's Athletic wing that can def replace Clark.

 

or

 

Korver - He's from Socal I believe, he wants to be part of a contending team...vet min?

 

I really want Nick Young, he has good size and he'd be perfect in this system....though Redick and Mayo would fit (but I believe they want too much)

 

Devin Harris only at the right price, he fits our needs as a backup PG (unless Steve Blake keeps at pace)

Reddick did horrible after being traded. Can he turn it around?

LeBron James will NOT leave the Miami Heat.

I like Speights over Hill just due to the fact that Hill has had a bad injury history.

 

Redick i know he can turn it around, he would be a great fit, but its not likely we can meet his salary demands.

 

Im thinking Lakers will amnesty Metta, we probably won't resign clark because he'll pull an ariza and want too much

Redick went to a team that chucks more shots than anyone else in the NBA (ranked 1st in FGA), but misses so many, they are ALSO ranked bottom three in the league in FG% (28th).

 

I'm pretty convinced that, if the Bucks didn't have Larry Sanders, they'd be a 25-win team, instead of 38-44 and in the playoffs.

Hickson and Harris.  I like Redick but I think defense and athleticism are bigger needs for this team than outside shooting.

Calling it right now:

Andrew Wiggins will be better than LeBron James.

Redick would be a major upgrade over Meeks. He doesnt get the open shots tat meeks gets too. Though not sure how we could get him being over the cap. He wont take min and not sure if we have any exceptions to use. Same with korver. Guy will want at least 5.

 

Maybe we can get lucky and one guy will take min but idk. Last season we were looking great and everyone was thinking we would be a contender for sure and we could only land jamison for min. I just dont think it will change much unless we make a deep push into playoffs like conference finals.

Honestly we need an athletic SF over anything else. But none of those names cut it. (No, I don't consider Earl Clark as a long term solution at SF)

Why Matt Barnes? I won't let his one decent year with the Clippers erase the disappointments I saw from him while he was a Laker.

JJ Hickson. 

Out of all those free agents posted, he stands out from all of them, imo.


 

Trade for Austin Rivers, say, Hill & Johnson.

I'm not a Matt Barnes fan boy by any means, but on a vet. minimum contract, give me him instead of Ebanks.
