    Default Mayo & Thabeet

    Should we be targeting these guys? Maybe Brewer and Sheldon Williams get it done. Mayo could be our offense off the bench. Thabeet our stopper down low. Giving up Moz made us so small.

    I like them going after Mayo. Not sure abt Thabeet. Mayo would be a really good fit now.

    Stop, plz. Youre starting to make too good sense.

    Perfrct trade to explore. Go for both. Thabeet makes sense for us to take a flyer on, and may makes getting mayo even easier. Thabeet did his ball @uconn, return to these parts could do him good.

    Mayo lets us go truly small/explosive,

    Billups (.400 3 range)
    Mayo (.400 3 range)
    Fields
    Melo
    Amare

    If mda will go small often, we may as well make it as truly effective as possible.

    Billups
    Fields
    Melo
    Amare
    Thabeet/Turiaf
    6th Mayo

    Douglas, Williams bench

    Daré i say, in theory...a truly BIG 5man rotation brewing.

    Thabeet?

    LMAO

    Mayo is not as good as he thinks he is, which turns him into a headcase.

    Bottom line: No thank you!

    I'd like us to get Dalembert for the playoffs.

    No thanks on Thabeet.

    Yes maybe on Mayo (depending on the price).

    You gotta think Thabeet can do as much as Moz did if not more. Mayo is more than a decent role player. He could be 6th man of the year on this team. I think adding both is worth the gamble...

    ^DFDH has a good point. I don't think these players would be all that effective. We need some size and we need a back up PG that can run a decent picknroll.

    Sure you may want BETTER players, but are they available? For cheap? We've traded almost all of our pieces worth anything. If you can get these to guys for anything on our roster you got to do it.

    Dont get me wrong Jordan would be great, but can we realistically get him right now...

    I'm not giving up Brewer, the guy is perfect off the bench.

    Hell no. Thabeet is not a basketball player. He still needs to learn so many aspects of the game that he probably would never be an NBA caliber player. Best case scenario is Thabeet becoming a late bloomer a la Kwame Brown. Couldn't solve nothing.

    About Mayo, now Rudy Gay is down for at least 4 weeks (if not the rest of the season) Memphis will not trade him. They're chasing the playoffs and need a scorer badly.

    Of course we realistically can't get him. Not after relinquishing almost all our quality assets.

    We need to pray Kaman stays put, and that the Clips..are The Clips...And let him go to us for a MLE type deal.

    Granted, I was begging for us to trade for him over a year ago. But id be joyously stunned if he comes here now.

    Thabeet/Mayo would be a coup if the price were right (maybe it now isn't). Mayo would be like N8 for us, except superior in almost every way. Take a flyer on Thabeet, pray for Jordan, ink Glen Davis, powermove in draft for Jimmers.

    And go to war, refining here and there. A Big Three is a fantasy at this point (barring a guy like Jordan or Mayo ascending, or us drafting a stud this year).

    Billups-Jimmers
    Fields-Mayo
    Melo-Williams
    Amare-Turiaf
    Davis-Thabeet

    That could be a legit contender. Even after Billups goes.

    Thabust is a stiff & he has a longterm contract we can't afford to take on. Not worth the hassle.

    Mayo wouldn't be a bad option but we have nothing to offer in a trade other than maybe a Corey Brewer & Toney Douglas package.

    Thabeet only has a 2 year contract meaning he'd be gone during the cp3/dwill summer.
