    That team ranges for a #6 seed at best to a lottery team. Clearly OKC would remain ahead of that team barring numerous injuries, San Antonio also looks likely to remain in the top 4 out west next season, Clippers would be better, Lakers would be better, Memphis is better, Dallas is iffy since I have no idea what they will be able to accomplish this off-season, Utah seems poised to at least contend with that team, as does Houston and Golden State if they can find their SF and some bench players. 

    You team would be fighting with Dallas, Denver, Golden State, Utah and Houston to make the playoffs. 

    Using Hollinger's estimated Wins Added since I did not want to search for actual WARP numbers.
    K. Lowry 5.9 
    N. Smith -.8
    N. Batum 6.1
    E. Williams .6
    L. Babbit .2
    S. Williams -1.5
    L. Aldridge 11.1 
    JJ Hickson 2.1
    C Kaman 3.3
    H. Thabeet .1

    Add in say 3 points for the rookies and you end up with 30.1 wins above replacements and replacement players are good for 10 wins so your team would be on average a 40 win team and would likely vary from 35-45 wins. That is not likely to get it done in the competitive West.

    I don't like the backups at all. Elliot Williams and Joel Freeland is one thing, but we need a point guard and a center. Kyle Lowry is nice, but we need somebody like Steve Nash or Jason Kidd if were going to keep Nolan Smith around so he has somebody with that kind of experience to learn from. As far as the center postition, Chris Kaman? Really? He would waste a ton of our cap space which could definitely be better used elsewhere. Dude only got 6 rebounds and 12 points a game last year. We might as well just make Aldridge a permanent center seeing as he was good for 20 and 8. The only real thing I could see as an upgrade is his 1.5 blocks a game, and even then we could get near that somewhere else.

    i'm not sure they would rule out steve nash if they were drafting a point guard considering he doesnt play more than 35 minutes a game. im getting an idea they have a plan

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
