Warriors  (38.5 million left to spend)

PG  Curry
SG (though likely 6th man before this is done) Bledsoe
SF Gallinari
PF Landry
C  M. Gasol

Like this team offensively, worried about your wings when playing a superstar SF and SG. I'm not sure CUrry, Bledsoe and Gallo can hang tight with Superstar wings. Marc Gasol to the rescue?

($13 Million left to spend, it's going to be tight)

PG - Andre Iguodala (not a PG but starting as a PG)
SG - Joe Johnson    (scorer, closer, cap eater, just like a Hummer gulps gas)
SF - Luol Deng      (LeBron/KD/Melo annoy-er)
PF - Elton Brand    (old man strength FTW)
C  - Joakim Noah    (defensive anchor, coolest guy on the team)

Complete and total lock down, inside and out.


A lot of weapons but no one to efficiently run them.

Iggy and JJ were effective Point Forwards during their careers, I'm pretty sure they can run things.

Oh, I agree that I need a wing stopper or two.


But there are plenty of them available.

Pretty darn good. I like Monta in that role, even if he hates it dearly.

Dynamite defensive team and rebounding unit but I think you are really going to struggle to score efficiently. Probably be one of the weaker offensive teams in the league.

I still think you would be better off going small with Deng at PF, Iggy at SF and JJ at SG with a proper point guard leading the way. Someone like Jeff Teague was who I was imagining in this role. I think you will gain more offensively than you will concede defensively and rebounding wise. Make you a better team.

Unfortunately, with Teague just getting picked, I am not sure there are many cheap starting quality PGs left on the draft board. Might be tricky.

I think Elton Brand is a very good backup big man at this stage in his career and his ability to play both PF and C gives you good lineup flexibility. Whatever role you decide on for him, I don't think he can be relied on for more than 20-25 minutes a night.

3 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 block, 2 steals, 1 turnover in 29 minutes. Sure, he didn't shoot well, but look at that line, im pretty sure contributed enough.

Warriors  (38.5 million left to spend)

PG  Curry
SG (though likely 6th man before this is done) Bledsoe
SF Gallinari
PF Landry
C  M. Gasol

The Warriors are in very good shape.

Plenty of talent left at SG to fill that final starting spot with a quality player.

I would keep Carl Landry in a bench role. I think he gets exploited, his weakness defensively and in terms of rebounding, as a starter. I think he is best off as a 25-28mpg backup PF.

So I would look to bring in a starting PF. Either a PF/C who can slide to center when M.Gasol goes to the bench and play alongside C.Landry. Or a 20mpg part time starting PF who is a stronger defender/rebounder than Landry is.

E.Bledsoe and C.Landry would give you two of the best bench in the leagues. A great starting place for a dominant bench unit.

66.2 Points/game for the starters. Sure, it's pretty low but I think there are  help coming their way. Defensively, they can probably hold the opponent to 65, and that's good enough for us.

I have the Rockets tentative starting line-up in place:

Manu/Harden/W. Chandler/Nene/Hawes.

Any thoughts on what I should prioritize from here.  About $25 mil left to spend.

Pick 2 Team: Rockets (McHale)
PG M. Chalmers ($4 mil) SG J. Harden ($5.8 mil) SF W. Chandler ($5.9) PF Nene ($13) C S. Hawes ($6.5) 6th man: Ginobli ($14.1) 7th man: Marv Williams ($8.3) Enforcers: F. Ezeli ($1), C. Hayes ($5.5) Bench Marksman: A. Morrow ($4) Young Gun: R. Jackson ($1.2) Greybeard: P. Prigioni ($.5) Towel-Waver: Mike Scott ($.5)

Pretty solid 2-5.  Not sure Ginobili can defend the PG position.  I'd definitely go for a real PG.  You might consider starting Manu at the 2, Harden at the 3 and bringing Chandler off the bench.  Just my two cents.

I dunno, but it appears Tristan Thompson is the one guy that doesn't fit. I would trade him for a vet PF, and another guy.

It's kind of hard to run a team with such diverse ages since by the time T2 is mature enough to be a star, the rest will be too old

Love the team, but wasn't crazy about the Hawes pick.
