I Ran Into Ted Leonsis and We Talked Draft, Coaching, Trading Deadline

Just kidding

But I liked SpecialSauce’s post about how Golden State is a likely trade partner for us before the trade deadline. We desperately need shooters and they desperately want a center.

However, I disagreed with his idea of trading McGee for Monta Ellis. Monta is a ball dominant undersized two guard who would essentially add a slightly more talented Nick Young to the team.

So I thought I’d give my idea for a trade with them and include my idea for an offseason plan.


Javale McGee

Jordon Crawford

Mo Evans


Klay Thompson

Dorell Wright

Keep in mind we would have to wait till Mo Evans is allowed to be traded in order to make this deal and by then Ronny Turiaf should be nearing full health. This would allow Turiaf to hold down the fort at Center until the offseason.

Starting Lineup till offseason:

PG John Wall, Shelvin Mack

SG Nick Young, Klay Thompson

SF Dorell Wright, Chris Singleton, Rashard Lewis

PF Trevor Booker, Jan Vesely, Baltche

C Turiaf, Seraphin

Even though we would be left severely undersized by this trade it would give Wall plenty of catch and shoot players for him to kick the ball out to. And who knows maybe we could trade for another big or sign a player like Joel Pryzbilla to help out.


Fire Randy Wittman and Ernie Grunfeld and make a run at Brian Shaw and some G.M. (I don’t know any G.M.’s)

Then in the offseason I would cut Lewis, let Nick Young walk and amnesty that one PF whose name shall not be said.

Then I would target Landry Fields because he is a good character, solid starter who can catch and shoot, rebound, and is an unrestricted free agent.

Secondly we could sign Jeff Green because he’s unrestricted and there seems to be a mutual interest with him and DC.

Then I would make a run at Omer Asik and/or Ian Mahinmi to play center since both are unrestricted free agents who can play D and have potential.

However, I have to admit I’m practically assuming we could get a guy like Anthony Davis, or Drummond in the draft. If not we could target someone like Sullinger or Robinson to play PF. I’m not even going to guess who we could get with our second round picks.

That would leave us with this lineup going into next season:

John Wall-Shelvin Mack

Landry Fields-Klay Thompson

Dorell Wright-Jeff Green

Anthony Davis (dreaming?)- Booker T.-Jan Vesely

Omer Asik- Ian Mahinmi (or resign Turiaf)- Kevin "has no talent" Seraphin

What do you think? Do you think GS would make the trade? Could we possibly get another 1st round pick in the deal? Would we have to include any of our 2nd round picks? You tell me.

I tried to be realistic and I think I generally was except for maybe the Davis pick.
