With about 38.5 mil to spend. I hope we use it wisely.<o></o>
The realistic senario that might unfold.<o></o>
Bosh - 16.5 mil<o></o>
Gay - 12 mil <o></o>
Lee - 10 mil<o></o>
not sure if lebron comes here, but i think bosh will. if Lebron doesnt, we would have a nice lineup before adding vet min contracts and draft picks. <o></o>
secure baron as our first big off the bench<o></o>
draft a defensive center like varnado or sign sean williams to a min<o></o>
draft a pure sg with defensive awareness.. llike vasquez ..we really dont have a true one<o></o>
sign shaun <st1lace w:st="on">livingston</st1lace> or randy foye <o></o>
<st1lace w:st="on">douglas</st1lace><o></o>
chandler, walker, baron<o></o>
i hope we dont use curry's contract on a larger long term one like okafor we would have too much commited for the next 4 years and we could use that to resign our own players like gallo, chandler in a couple of years. id only do it if we can secure collinson in the process but id rather get back peja and give NOH cash to sweeten it. doubt it though...<o></o>
i would only want to use curry's contract on a player like monta ellis. even if we had to include td or chandler.<o></o>
ellis - 11 mil<o></o>
gay - 12 mil<o></o>
gallo - 3.3 mil<o></o>
lee - 10 mil<o></o>
bosh 16.5<o></o>
total 53 mil<o></o>
foye - 2 mil<o></o>
walker - 1 mil<o></o>
chandler - 2.1 mil<o></o>
varnado - 800 k<o></o>
baron - 1.3 mil<o></o>
vasquez - 800k<o></o>
total 8 mil<o></o>
overal about a 61 million dollar team<o></o>
i think this is very doable for donnie.<o></o>
