Free Agency or Trade Deadline?

With the trade deadline coming up, Kahn has a big decision to make. Will he use the expiring contracts and assets to add more legitimate pieces or let them expire and use the salary cap space in the summer? The more I think about it, the more I like using the $20 million in expiring contracts at the trade deadline. Players like Andris Biedrins, Andre Iguodala, Samuel Dalembert, Kevin Martin, and Rudy Gay could be available. Of course I would only want to add these players at the right price.

Trades I would consider:

Iguodala and Dalembert for Cardinal, Wilkins, Blount, and either CHA or UTA 1st

Martin for Flynn, Gomes, and Pavlovic (maybe throw in Pekovic if need be)

Biedrins for Blount and either CHA or UTA 1st

Gay for Flynn

Ideally I would do the Iguodala, Dalembert, and Martin trades. End up with a lineup of

Dalembert/Jefferson
Jefferson/Love
Iguodala/Brewer
Martin/Ellington
Sessions/?????

This opens up what we could do in the draft so much. We could target Hassan Whiteside. Give him a year to work with all of this roster and have him be the starting center when Dalembert's contract expires. We could draft someone that doesn't need to be able to create for themselves. Someone like Wes Johnson that can do everything but dribble. Eventually Rubio would come over and have a lot of weapons to play around with and move Sessions back to the bench.

What would you rather do?
