    Our starting lineup is great. 
    We do need acquire depth to become a elite TEAM. No question our starting lineup can score.

    Dominique Jones is on the market.... he played great in Sl, would you guys consider getting him.  This thread is too discuss players you think would improve our bench.

    I think first of all the return of Ronnie Price will really pull our bench together. Price, Leonard, Sasha, Barton and Freeland . We're at 15 guys now so there's no roster spot as of yet. Don't know Jones game at all so couldn't judge his value. Unsigned free agents are not an impressive bunch now. Guys who are available and unsigned are Josh Howard, Kenyon Martin, Mike Bibby, Baron Davis, of those Martin has defensive skills but I don't think any of them add much. Our last 3 guys on the bench are not going to see much court time so they won't affect games much. Preseason we didn't really see the bench we are going to use regular season. Smith, Babbit, Claver are bottom of the bench now. Both Jeffries and Freeland can play the 4

    Can Kenyon play center ? And where's is head at ? What teams if any are remaining who have an incomplete roster ? Id trade a few guys to make room for Kenyon. Im grasping here but, if it were possible to trade lets say Babbitt,Nolan and Jeffries away for some future picks, clear up some room and sign Kenyon, id much rather see him starting with L.A., so that Hickson could spark the bench. Then we'd have a more formidable second unti in my opinion. Price,Barton or Sasha at the two,Sasha or Clave at the three,Hickson or Freeland at the four, and Leonard at the pivot. Olshey brought Kenyon to the Clippers so maybe their relationship is cool. Miami won last year without a real center.Joel Anthony? You're kidding right ?  They played together, moved Bosh to the five at times.

    Kenyon can play center but he's not much offensive power, rebounds well and quickly fouls out of games. He's also a bit of a head case..get's techs pretty often. Another unsigned free agent is Michael Redd..another aging vet who can really shoot but that's about it. Problem is these guys all want to get paid more than market value.

    Forgot about Price- I also think he will help us a lot.

    Pieturs, Josh Howard might be good pickups. Even tho Howard is a nut lol

    Philly has a lot of wing players. If we can snag NIck Young or Thaddeus Young that would help.....also they have 3 centers.....

    Nick Young and Kwame Brown for Joel Freeland, Nolan Smith, Future First and second round picks would be great for this team ....

    Hickson will likely move to the sixth man role eventually, once Leonard can show consistency at the 5. The biggest part there is avoiding foul trouble, which he did impressively vs the lakers big front line last night.

    I liked Hickson in the Starting 5...
    Leonard is gonna take a while in my opinion. 

    I didnt know Micheal Redd was a free agent...he might bring a spark but then again he is 33.
    I really like our starting lineup. I think Claver, Nolan, Babbit, maybe even Freeland should be used to acquire a spark for our bench.

    Wish we would get Jeff Green, or Thaddues Young

    If we can swing Babbitt and Smith for Thadeus, do it immediately. Throw in one of the two Greek picks to sweeten the pot. Eddie Curry just became available. He is a big body. Actually he has slimmed down considerably. He had a damned decent offensive game at once upon a time, and really helped Dallas pound the Lakers on the inside.

    I was really impressed by Curry. He has great post moves and can rebound, might be a good menotr to our bigs. Defense is a big problem for him tho

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

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
