Samuel Dalembert possibly traded to the CATS

At 17 from looking at Mock's we could still get T-Will, Earl Clark, Henderson or Blair. More Likely Earl Clark, but you never know with the quacky drafts.

I'm really not sold on anyone near the top of this draft so trading our pick down or completely out wouldn't bother me. I think there are some value picks for LB's system later in the draft but I just think trading the pick down in order to get rid of Nazr's contract and obtain a difference maker like Dalembert who could really help us against Boston and Orlando really makes no difference.

I'm all for dumping our picks in a trade.

The reason I like the swapping picks is, most mock's expect one of the three to be at 17. We could still get our guy at 17, plus getting rid of Nzar and Vlad would be great. It give us two 14 and 10 center's in the east, built around the guards and forwards we have we could easily win 45 + games.

Lineup would look like this.

Felton Augustine Singeltary

Bell (Henderson, Twill), Jefferson

Wallace, Martin, Diaw

Diaw, Ajinca, Howard

Okafor, Dal, Diop

Full 15 with Ajinca and Jefferson probably getting some good mins in Dleague.

That looks pretty good on paper if you ask me.

That trade would be great for us. Losing Vlad would kind of suck, but we get rid of Nazr and his big ass contract. Also, we obtain a legitimate big man down low, allowing Okafor to move to his natural position of PF.

We need a good big man to help Anjica develop I think.

either that or someone to train him like LA and the Magic are doing with Howard and Bynum. Maybe that's what you were talking about too though.

I'm just thinking I'd rather have a Tim Duncan in there setting an example for Anjica every night instead of a Primo Brezec. I'd hope the coaching staff had someone focused on bringing him along physically.

I doubt we exchange 12 for 17 unless T-Will goes at 11

Besides I'm not high on Mek/Dalembert or Diop/Dalembert talk about an offensively offensive frontcourt

I am all for it

Dalembert is a double double guy and you are forgetting the load money that we get rid of in nazr's and radman's contracts but mainly nazr's.

The salary dump is the only brightside imo

I don't think Williams, Henderson or Clark make it to 17

thats why we just worked out James Johnson and Derrick Brown today..

if T.Will is gone, make the trade with the Sixers and get Dalembert and take Johnson at 17, hopefully.. if Clark falls to 17, i would be extremely happy.. if we get T.Will or Henderson at 12, i will be happy.. but if we have to hang onto Nazrs contract, i wont be happy
