Option 1:
PG: Randy Foye, Sebastian Telfair
SG: Mike Miller, Rashad McCants
SF: Ryan Gomes, Corey Brewer, Rodney Carney
PF: Kevin Love, Craig Smith, Brian Cardinal
C: Al Jefferson, Jason Collins, Calvin Booth, Chris Richards

Pros- Good 3pt shooting team, strong in the post, good passing from PF position, decent 2nd unit, more capspace in 2009 and 2010, has Nikola Pekovic developing in Europe
Cons- Entire foward rotation is mostly undersized, franchise player is being played out of position, Love-Jefferson combination looks shaky defensively on paper, Miller not known as a defender either



Option 2:
PG: Randy Foye, Mario Chalmers, Marko Jaric
SG: OJ Mayo, Rashad McCants, Greg Buckner
SF: Ryan Gomes, Corey Brewer, Rodney Carney
PF: Al Jefferson, Craig Smith, Antione Walker
C: DeAndre Jordan, Calvin Booth, Chris Richards

Pros- Good 3pt shooting, nice size overall, good 2nd unit, balanced roster with both rookies and veterans, alot of potential, good defenders in the guard positions, Jordan should be a good helpside defender
Cons- Untested; rookies at 2 starting positions, Jordan doesn't have the offensive skills to start, too many players several would need to be bought out, Foye and Mayo skillwise may overlap, not enough minutes to keep veterans happy and continue to develop youth
(Pretty sure this will be my team on NBA 2k9)


As a fan I would rather support the 2nd team but when analysing it the first team has a much more balanced and experienced overall team.

The 2nd option is shaky because we would never know if we would take Chalmers/Jordan with the picks. Also, the Memphis trade got us much healthier financially (swapping Jaric for Cardinal, getting rid of Buckners deal) and we finally got a 9million player worth his deal (Mike Miller).

I support what we have now.

In regards to Jordan and Chalmers, that is purely just what I would have drafted (or maybe replaced Chalmers with CDR). It would have given us a 7 footer who, while he doesn't possess much offence would only be needed to play defence and a great backup PG who continues the trend of surrounding Jefferson with 3pt shooters to space the floor. But I agree what we have now is more healthy financially
