While we wait for the Posey chip to fall I'm wondering about who Ernie would target in a trade. THinking in terms of a 2/3 who can defend and knock down and open jump shot.
Trent Hassell, John Salmons, Hakim Warrick, Jared Jeffries, Thabo Sefolosha, and Des Mason are my shortlist. Salmons makes too much for too long though. Warrick is more of a 3/4 than 2/3 and doens't add anything from 3. Hassell contributed to good playoff teams before Minnesota pulled the plug.
Jeffries had a horrid year in NY. Ernie was right not to match Isaiah's full MLE offer. Yet somehow here I am pondering an Etan for Jeffries deal that would save NY 6Mil in 2010.
Thabo Sefolosha is more of a 2 than a 3. He's the cheapest option, which makes him valuable to his own team and less likely to get moved in the guard shuffle in Chicago.
Mason is available. He isn't going to see much time in Milwaukee behind Richard Jefferson, Jow Alexander and Mbah a Moute.
