I'm sitting here bored, watching the draft. I don't want to see the team blown up, but I figured I'd see what I could do.
Here's a trade I just did on TradeChecker and it worked.
PHX's 2009 2nd Round Pick (Our's or GS's)
CLE's 2008 1st Round Pick
CLE's 2009 1st Round Pick
This allows the Suns to rebuild. Smith, Snow and Wally are all off the books after 1 year. Nash and O'Neal would be huge for Cleveland. Then Cleveland's picks could add some depth to the team so when those 3 contracts are up we can sign a star or two to carry the team. This season sign a backup PF/C. Like a Theo Ratliff
. I'm also assuming Grant Hill is gone as well...
This still leaves our team with:
And just for the hell of it, I'll do minutes per game...
Our young core players get minutes:
Amare:38, Barbosa:35, Pick(Augustin?):20, Pick(McGee):20, Strawberry:31, Tucker:18
This team isn't awful. In fact, I could see them possibly making the playoffs with the eighth seed their first year.
