I think in a package with Doris expiring we could probably get some asset and maybe another 2012 first...but I think it would have to be close to the dead-line if there is a season...which there might not be...
...and frankly that might have more value....Hammer and Diop don't have that much longer on their contracts...I'd rather bring assets in that ship those contracts out for nothing or very little...maybe Eddie and his contract gets us even better asset and 1st....but either is probably possible...

dnb...we can hope for one amnesty...but even so...it's not that long (Diops contract) anymore...and I'm tired of garbage-in-garbage-out...if we get assets in lets keep them until we can do something positive...not just a contract dump...or at least that's what I'd like to do...
Maybe this is obvious, but if we get an amnesty dump, do we take Diop over Maggette?
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
Maggs will make 10 million more over the next 3 years...he's gave 67 games, 21mpg, and 12 ppg last season...I think with a good rookie pick we could do better for a lot less....
Diop gives very little but 10 mil is 10 mil...and in the right circumstance he gives youy six fouls...
Diop and Maggs are both only on the roster for another two years. The only player on the roster for longer than two years is Tyrus.
We're having pretty much the same discussion on RGM and I think you'd have to go with Diop mainly because we have 4-5 guys already on the roster who can play the 5 spot and only one (maybe 2 if you count Hammer) who can play the SF. You also have to think we're going to be relying on Maggs to make up for a sizeable chunk of Jack's production so cutting him means we have no guys other than a rookie who excel at scoring the ball. You also have to consider that Maggs will have more value on the trade market this time next year as a productive expiring that vet teams would love to pick up for his scoring punch.
We're definitely in a bind, that's for sure. If we can sign a couple of wings (Dante doesn't count) then I'll change my stance.
Aside from the obvious size differences, does anybody else see a little bit of D Wade in Kemba?
Remember how D Wade literally WILLED a decent Marquette team into the Final Four? Anyone rememeber that triple double he had against Kentucky? Drives to the lane, not afraid to take the last shot, can distribute.
Size wise, people want to compare Kemba to AI, but I see a lot of D Wade intangibles.
And like what was said before, if he can get half the separation as he did on that ankle shattering crossover, holy shit look out.
STARTING AT FOOOORWARD...6'8"..Tyr......wait...Dom..who the fuck?
