Fantasy Land (Smith and Howard)
« on: January 30, 2013, 10:23:15 AM »
In this my imaginary world where everything I want to happen, happens Boston is able to trade for Josh Smith and dump enough salary to land Dwight Howard in free agency this summer, thus giving Boston a roster centered around the 3 friends of Rondo, Smith, and Howard.  How does that happen?  Like this.

Trade 1 - Green, Bass, Lee, 2014 & 2016 1st, 2014 2nds to Atlanta for Smith, Korver, Petro
Trade 2 - Pierce to LAC, Odom to BOS, Butler & LAC 1st to CLE
Trade 3 - Garnett to HOU for Delfino, Aldrich, Jones
Trade 4 - Terry to IND for Augustin

Boston lineup rest of year

PG - Augustin, Barbosa
SG - Bradley
SF - Korver, Delfino
PF - Smith, Sullinger, Jones
C - Odom, Wilcox, Aldrich, Melo, Petro, Collins

So the team is awful and gets a very high pick this summer (here's hoping for Ben McLemore, Shabazz Muhammad, etc.)  Drop off Odom, Korver, Petro, Collins, Wilcox, and Barbosa (and Aldrich if you don't want to re-sign him) this summer, leaving just Rondo, Bradley, Delfino, Sullinger, Jones with plenty of room to re-sign Smith and bring in Howard and some other mid-road free agent (like say Budinger). 

Thus in the ideal world, Boston in 2013-4 will be

PG - Rondo (12M), Vet Min (1M)
SG - Bradley (2.5M), Ben McLemore (4.5M)
SF - Budinger (6M), Delfino (3M)
PF - Smith (15M), Sullinger (1.3M), Jones (1.5M)
C - Howard (15M), Melo (1.3M)

Puts the team right about the cap. Again this is my imaginary made up fantasy world where all of the trades happen, Boston gets McLemore in the draft, and Smith and Howard want to play with Rondo in Boston (and thus sign similar contracts).

Teams would just sit in a zone against us because no one would be able to shoot the ball. We could sure play D and cause turnovers and hopefully get out and run, but in a halfcourt offense we would be pretty brutal to watch.

Budinger is a pretty good shooter and McLemore isn't bad at it.  But yeah, that would be a weakness, but is one you could fill with shooters off the bench.
