...trying to get AL JEFFERSON.

Best post moves since Hakeem.

He automatically helps you against Orlando because he can defend Dwight Howard one on one, and Howard has to defend him. He's also more affordable than Chris Bosh, and he's more of a banger inside than Bosh who prefers to shoot 15 footers.

This is probably a realistic option if you pursue him.

A player like Jefferson is a MUST for this team which is in the same Division as Orlando (D. Howard), but if the team wants Chris Paul, then try to work out some kind of multi-team deal to land both Paul and Jefferson.

How would you make that happen (Jackson is expendable, only Wallace is untouchable)?

What are the scenarios...e.g., a sign and trade of Felton?

Paul would be great, but still wouldn't solve the interior problems. The impact of Jefferson (6'10, 265 lb, 25 years old) would be monumental for this team.

I doubt Minny wants anymore PGs, plus the Bobs would be taking on way too much salary in Jefferson and would have to throw in Diaw or someone with a similar contract.

It won't happen.

I agree that PG is the position that needs to be upgraded most, but not sure that the Bobs have the assets/cap space to pull anything off.

The PG position does not need upgrading the most.

The Bobcats SUCK inside. If you have any conceptual skills whatsoever, what you notice in that YouTube clip is the amount of times other teams are trying to DOUBLE TEAM Jefferson. That's his biggest benefit if you want to open up an offense. Against Orlando, it forces Dwight Howard to stay home and concentrate more on "HIS MAN", which allows other players to get to the basket more easily.

"MULTI-TEAM" deal does not imply that Felton would have to go to Minnesota or New Orleans. Multi- means more than one, not exactly three.
