Free agency : Players you want/Players you don't

Still though, either throwing money at him, or a sign-and-trade will be required.

 

I know this isn't a popular opinion but I would be fine with giving 12 mil a year to Hayward and/or giving up anything not named Kemba, MKG, or Al to get him through a sign-and-trade. This even includes the coveted Detroit pick as well Zeller and Biz. I'm not saying I would give ALL that up by any means, but the Detroit pick alone would do it. And that's assuming 12 mil a year wouldn't get it done to straight up sign him.

 

This is my opinion because I think Hayward gets us to the next level far more than any other player that is seemingly available (and realistic) would. I also am not convinced the Detroit pick is going to even be a top 16 pick next year.

Gay is far from a "team saver," in fact I'd argue he's the opposite.

Hayward is still probably the most interesting to me, though I'm not in love with him either. As was mentioned, I could see the Jazz moving him if they can acquire Wiggins or Parker somehow.

Deng is also interesting, and another veteran could certainly help, we'd probably have to move MKG to the two but that's something I wish we would've experimented with already.

Y'all are way too quick to give up on Gordon Hayward. He doesn't want to keep losing in Utah, as evidenced by his recent interviews. They are also really happy with Alec Burks and their young big men. If they can walk away from the draft with Wiggins or Parker they will have a replacement for Hayward. This is also the same team that let BOTH Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap walk as Unrestricted Free Agents instead of trading them at the deadline last season. They're also a pretty classy organization. If Hayward says he wants out I don't think they will fight him by matching his offer sheet.

Hayward would probably cost the pistons pick and 12-15 a year.

As for adding a Sf like Deng.

MKG could probably play the two defensively, but I'm not sure about offensively, it hurts his best attribute on offense and that's his speed and first step.

MKG is the lynchpin for this defense and why it plays so well. Moving him might hurt The overal defense a bit.

I'm not sure if I would love that or hate it. But we have cap room that we'll never use, so eventually we are going to have to give it to someone.

Where is this notion that Hayward is a good shooter coming from. His shooting %'s (both two and three point shots) is worse then Hendo's.

If you want a shooter you have to grab Stephenson (no matter how Russell Westbrookesque he is). Stephenson nearly shoots 50% from the field, that's what we need.

Even with a very down year, Hayward is a career 36.5% shooter from 3. Even with his greatest year statistically on a very low volume, Hendo is a career 30.0% shooter from 3. We need guys who can shoot 3's. Let MKG and Big Al work in the paint.

Carmelo is a cancer. There's a reason he has never won anything.
