By only going your route, you destory your cap space where if there is a quality guy for a great price in FA, you screw yourself. All your money is tied up in toxic player that you wont be able to move. You want to go Cleveland's route in how they are rebuilding. Money is not an issue for them. We have to look at our situation. We dont have the Richest owner in the game so we cant just spend money any which way we want to. But even Cleveland was smart about there trade.
They took on 10 mil to get a top 7 pick in the draft. You want to take on 15+ mil to get a late teens pick. So yeah, you are getting assets but at what cost.
I really hope that Boston rumor comes to fruition as that could help us land in the Quincy Miller range. I know it's the Clippers' pick (not the Celtics), but if we bag that up with our 2nd round pick on draft night, move into the teens with our 2nd pick, and we could walk away with Davis and Miller out of this draft. :drool:
Jamal Crawford, Blazers
Potential suitors: Timberwolves, Bobcats
It's obvious that Crawford and Nate McMillan aren't working. Nobody really thought they would, but the lack of money available elsewhere for Crawford made a two-year deal with Portland for $10 million the only contract worth signing. Now, though, the Blazers are looking to cut their losses. Initially, a deal with Minnesota, which coveted Crawford initially, seemed like a no-brainer, with the Blazers re-patriating Luke Ridnour to Oregon. But Ricky Rubio's season-ending ACL tear Friday has made that potential deal much less likely, with the Wolves needing to hold onto their veteran point guard. So, now, according to a source, there's a chance Crawford winds up with the Bobcats in a potential deal for guard D.J. Augustin. Augustin has played just fine this season, but he's expendable now that Kemba Walker is there.
With TJ Ford retiring from Spurs, there is a reasonable chance to trade DJ to San Antonio for their 1st. Would be a late rounder, but still can get something decent for DJA rather than lose him for nothing.

although the Spurs love their draft picks they always draft well and I don't really think taking on Jefferson is worth probably the 27th pick
actually now I come to think of it T-time and Reggie Williams for Richard Jefferson and a draft pick
