Marion's minutes have to go somewhere as Shaq will probably only play 25 minutes/game. The Suns are going to miss his perimeter defense. I guess they could play Tucker, but they also have the KT and Jones trade exceptions. The ATL pick is going to be in the middle of the first round, so why not trade it to get a final piece. Luxury tax be damned.
The Warriors are in contention (so this deal probably wouldn't happen), but what about Mickael Pietrus
. His contract is expiring and he's only playing 17 minutes/game. He's behind Azubuike and Barnes.
Thabo Sefolosha (2 yrs/3.7M + option/qualifying offer): Pipe dream, but he is ninth on the team in minutes. Are they still high on him?
(2 years/3.5M+qualifying offer)
Desmond Mason (2 years/10.3M)
Ron Artest (2 years/16.2M)
