Probably it for trades, huh?

I was just looking at SJax and Gerald Wallace being available and realizing that now we have a million SFs, and little to offer in any kinds of trades at the deadline. It makes the Gilbert trade hurt more to look at it from this perspective. It also made me think, "Hey, let's go pick on Michael Jordan!" Alas, we probably can't do that. Others have explained this better than I could, but it is clear that the Lewis means there's not a whole lot of moves we can make other than getting ping pong balls for the next two years.

Look at our cap, we're up against it still, and will be for the next two years if I'm reading this right. We have a completely untradeable guy in Lewis (while Gilbert would be tradeable pretty much forever barring injury). We don't want to part with Wall, McGee, Blatche or Young. Trading Booker would get rid of our only player with a mean streak who rebounds.

I guess that means Josh Howard (our only leader, sigh) would be the only hope for a nice trade before the deadline to get some picks? When do the picks come into play in Ted's "plan?" I mean, other than losing enough to get a lottery pick...

So I'm wondering who the trade chips are now that Gilbert is gone. We all agree this isn't the team we will have for years to come with John Wall. If you had to make a hard decision, what youngster would you trade to get a pick or a real, honest to goodness PF who can rebound?

I'm guessing there would be Kirk, with his expiring contract, JHo if he can showcase himself over the next month ... and ... that's it.
