This is a conservative plan focused in keeping Pek next year.
1. No Batum, neither Iggy.
2. Sign Roy, Shved, Steamer, Tolliver.
- They get a backup PG and a smile and some extra cap.
- We get another pass first PG that can take care of the team while Rubio recovers. Calderon is on his last year of contract so it won't be an issue next year to get max cap for Pek - if needed.
4. Get Courtney Lee(5M). I have no idea what to offer here because it will depend on DH final trade.
Why I don't like it: we don't get a top 25 SF .
Why I like this: we get a top pass first PG like Rubio. If Roy and Shved have issues at SG we can use CLee there. And next year we can have enough salary cap to keep Pek even maxed (I think Portland will go after him if they don't get McGee or any other starting Center, and many other teams too).
G - Rubio/Calderon/Ridnour/MLee/Roy/Shved/Ellington
F - Love/Budinger/Williams/CLee/Tolliver
C - Pek/Steamer
It is far from perfect but I think it is another way to improve the team this year and next year.
