-I did not know to much about Morris Almond before we signed him. After reading some scouting reports on him, and seeing some highlights, the kid can flat out play. Talk about a nice 2 gaurd to have on our team. Now I dont expect him to start or produce like Hughes does. But the potential is there, walsh and dantoni can do a lot with this and make this a great investment. 6'6 with a 7'0 wingspan, good enough atheltic ability, great shooter to be on the wing in dantonis system. Limit his turnovers and we may have a great SG of the future.
-Jaon Kidd...I would never say no to having Kidd as our PG. If they can get him at a decent price that wont kill us for next years FA than great. I still would rather have Ramon Sessions as our PG, he may cost more than Kidd because more team are interested in him. But our PG situation should be adressed this year. Steve Nah would be good but him and Kidd are both on there way out. Sessions is an up and coming star.
-Eddy Curry and Jared Jeffries. PLEASE LEAVE.
-Jordan Hill. Hey I think this kid can be a great player. How is he not like Amare Stoudimire when he was drafted, Amare out of HS was so raw, a lot of atheltic ability, ok jump shot. Now look at him. Jordan Hill is very athletic but has a mid range game unlike Amare did in year 1. So lets see if he can end up a stud.
-Tony Douglas-Ben gordon is 6'3 and I think he is doing fine. Tony Douglas will be a good backup. The ACC defender of the year, ask Levance Fields on Pitt what Douglas is like when he held him to 2 points. I think he is our Eddie House, small 2 gaurd who can shoot lights out and play great defense.
-Nate and Dlee-Looks like they may be here, more so Lee. Nate we can do a S n T most likely.
-Danilo Gallinari-Excited to see what he could do, reminds me exactly of Hedou Turkaglou, I think Danilio will make himself comfortable on the wing with his great shot, give him some explosion and injury free and he will be a good player.
-Darko-It is never bad to have a 7'0 tall backup center. Lets see what he can do in the system. Low risk high reward gamble.
My ideal roster for 2009..
PG: RAMON SESSIONS/Chris Duhon
SG:Larry Hughes/Nate/ Tony Douglas/Morris Almond
SF:Danilo Galinari/Wilson Chandelar.
PF: David Lee/Al Harrington
My Ideal roster for 2010
PG: Ramon Sessions
SG:Morris Almond/Tony Douglas
SF: Lebron James/ Danilo Galinari
C: Jordan Hill
The reason I have No bosh in 2010, is I would ratrher have Lee and Sessions or Lee and Kidd who would cost the same as Bosh would.
Just some thoughts for everyone...
those rosters are not championship caliber.

Nate one-year $4mil offer and Kidd signed for 3yrs@$5mil, 2009 lineup would be:
Smith (Cardinal, JHill)
Hughes (Nate, Almond, Douglas)
Kidd (Duhon, Lowry)
Id bet this lineup would whooop that weak 5 you have
2010, we'd have money for bron and bosh
I didnt want to speculate too much on possible trades, but yes I do want to move curry and jeffries. I would love to get Josh Smith. Imagine him and lebron running wild in dantonis system with a good PG. I do think we can get TMAC but it will take a lot. I would say Eddy Curry+Larry Hughes+Cuttino Mobley for Tmac. and Nate Robinson+Jeffries+Wilson Chandelar for Josh Smith possibly david lee instead of nate with the S and T? Imagine...
PG: Kidd? whoever we sign
PF: Josh Smith
C: Jordan Hill
^^^^ that frontcourt would be athletic and fun to watch but not tuff enough to win a championship.
