robert swift is good. he's just been injured and never got back to his original form. collison is naturally a PF but does well at the center position. kurt thomas, i guarantee wont be there after his contract ends. johan petro is the real disappointment for them. more of a defensive specialist, but even then not reliable. POB could be there 2nd center while kurt thomas is there and they could slide collison over to his natural PF position.



agreed about swift. He is good. But he's still a project centre. Oh and you forgot about Sene who they drafted just last year. U think they want 4 young centres?


good points. well pob is still good as an expirer....and honestly id give up on sene or try to trade him within the next couple years. or try to trade petro as he might be good in a place like new york if curry gets traded.

Honestly, I'm not sure Chris Wilcox is worth Croshere, Obryant and Azu. His stats really aren't that impressive for giving up this many players (mainly Azu). I also enjoy watching these guys play, and would not be willing to give that up for Wilcox. Might just be me, though...
This is my incredibly intelligent signature line. Clever eh?

a scoring rebounder...averaging about 13 and 8 in seattle...in our system roughly translates to 15 and 10. maybe more points since he's a legit scoring option in the post.

Yeah, I'd LOVE to add him... even more than any other name out there (except Artest, of course)... It's just that I don't see a single reason why Seattle would make this move. Not unless a first round pick is involved.

$6.5 million this year and 6.75 the next. A free agent after that. It's not a bad deal for a player like him. Shouldn't be a problem to re-sign our guys, much less if we trade a first rounder (as we'd save that salary).

maybe or maybe not this info may be true, with Dallas unloading the farm today, they now need a shooter and defender that they lost in the trade.

yeah, I think there is a good chance that Dallas will try to get MP at this point. Maybe for a pick and cash...

After trading two picks to NJ in the Kidd deal?. I doubt they'd surrender more than a second...

How about a trade for Wilcox and Thomas?

Use the trade exception for Thomas and then obtain Wilcox for POB, Croshere and Error France.

Oviously Seattle would be looking for a pick - I'd let them have the Warriors 1st rounder for this year.

That trade would give the Warriors some serious front court depth and variety.

My depth chart:

BD / CJW
ME / KA / MB
SJ / AH / MB
CWi / CWe / BW
AB / KT / KP

I would imagine that SJ might play some 2 and be on the floor at the same time as AH at the 3 if the Warriors wanted to go big.

no way seattle will give BOTH of their starting big men to us.

welcome to the board! :hello2:

I don't know about that. If we throw a first round their way, it might happen. Remember, they're already tanking the season, and still have Collison at PF and lots of young centers to play. The key for them would be to get expirers AND picks.

Thanks for the welcome.

Sure it'd be unusual for them to give both players up, but I don't see either player in Seattle's future.

Seattle's PF spot is going to be occupied by a combination of Collison, Green and maybe Durant (even though the last two are really SF).

What remains less certain is its future plans for center - none of Swift, Sene and Petro have made an impact; perhaps they'd really welcome the chance to see what POB can do over the last 25 games of the season.

Seattle will also have the opportunity for a big man with their own high draft pick (although they may be thinking PG as well).

yeah...durant wont be able to guard the PF position until he learns to play defense. i really dont see seattle giving us both of their starting big men, even with their young centers or even if we send a first rounder their way. they are a really yougn team...the only way i see us getting ONE of their bigs is by sending expirers. im sure sometime within the next 3 years theyre gonna look to sign someone of allstar calibur to play alongside durant while he is still cheap.

Well, I think they'll try to build via draft more than signings. Other than his pick, they also have two more first rounders from Phoenix (from the Kurt Thomas trade) and seems like they're interested in acquiring more.

Of course they'll soon have the cap to sign a big free agent... but not next year.
