Hey guys check out my Roster/ages for next season:
RW22 / Nate26 / Ivey 26
JH21 / Cook23
KD22 / Pietrus28 / Lat Will21
Ibaka21 / R Anderson22 / Colli30
Perk25 / Naz33 / Cole Ald22
Why: Starting team is obvious young and talented I think everybody agrees on that plus Perk can resign for about 7 per year and RW like Rondo's contract (no contenders team will have cap to match that with new CBA coming) plus Harden will defend better and Ibaka(scored 3pts in all star weekend) and Perk can score too I dont think there are only 3 scoring options in the starting 5 and with that ages they will be better and better and better.
Reserves: first of all none of the subs will make more then 3/4 mil per year we have to resign Naz (veteran contract next years) and Cook around 3mil year same contract for Pietrus(Free Agent) Nate and Ryan And, then Collison and Cole for 2 mil Ivey and Latavious for 1 mil.
This contracts will make our team not too expensive for the new CBA.
Reserves - why this guys: I read in this forum worries about 2nd unit scoring but check this Nate Cook Pietrus Ryan Anderson can easily score 10 points each per game and dont have problems playing less minutes then the starters.
Think about this new guys: Pietrus can defend guys like Lebron Kobe better the Sefo(with similar contract) and score more then Sefo any night plus he has been in the finals so one more experient playoff guy oh and can play both 2 or 3 spots. Ryan Anderson: a score punch from the bench can strech the floor for KD RW penetrations still young and nice price.
In some games when needed defense (to substitute Ibaka) I put Collison instead of Anderson and in the 5 spot when trouble fauls hits on Perk/Naz, about Latav and Cole they can be the guys playing between first team and D League.
Here is my trades for the summer (add draft picks for Orlando because they dont have it and Phoenix will have a replacement for Steve Nash in Maynor/Aaron Brooks)
In my view this team can be fighthing for the rings for many years (exept Naz) and we dont need any Draft Picks for years to come either.
Wait for your thoughts.
