figured that title would get peoples attention, but anyway, this is a follow up to my last thread, everyone one was saying no ostertag, so an alternative would be this

Trade Sacramento's first rounder, DeClerq and Buechler to Indiana for Austin Croshere.

Sign Brian Skinner.

Then the depth chart would look like this

C Mohammed, Oyedeji
PF Croshere, Skinner, Hunter
SF Hill, Humphrey, McKey
SG McGrady, Piatkowski
PG Vaughn, Armstrong

This team is small, but fits the eastern conference, and the league is driven by power forwards anyway. Even being smaller, the team is a good rebounding team.

I still like the Ostertag plan better, but this would work too. This is more of a Doc Rivers team.

I don't know who posted it here first, but Grant Hill is still the biggest off-season acquisition of this summer. Hill won't be back at the top of his game, but expect 18pts, 7rbs, 7asts. Then in the playoffs his production will go up like Jason Kidd's did this season.

stupid huh

Well indiana isn't stupid, but they need to unload his salary, so they can resign O'neal, Harrington, and Miller, next summer, possibly Foster too. They have unlimited talent on their roster, they are not looking to get equal talent in return, just to unload his guaranteed salary, so they can go elsewhere with the money. Getting a first rounder, and equal salary to expire in 2003, yes they would do it.

I think they'll go out their way to get him off, if they expect to sign those guys, and Artest

i dont think that croshere would help us in getting TD or Jermaine cuz his contract is realy big and it would jsut bein the way. and plus, crosher sucks.. he's overrated and only did good in the playoffs that year.

He doesnt suck, Hes a role player

He played behind Harrington, Artest, Bender, O'neal and Foster. Not enough time for everyone to play, so someone had to get screwed. He sure doesnt suck, but hes nothing more than a role player

What do you think Gabe got rid of Bo Outlaw and Brendan Haywood for? Cap room. He isn't going to waste it all on Austin Croshere.

yes he does suck. he tore it up during the playoffs. then he got his fatty contract and stunk it up (the overachiever disease). everyone billed him as "great potential and blah blah blah" and couldnt live up to the expectations so he basically died and became sucky

What are you people talking about? Since when are the Magic going to go out and sign Eric Piatkowski and Derrick McKey, and trade for Nazr Mohammed (for what, Mike Miller?) and Austin Croshere? Why would the Magic want ANY of these guys? Have you looked at the contracts of Croshere and Nazr? TOTALLY UNDESIRABLE CONTRACTS! These two guys are NOT good NBA players! Piatkowski is a good shooter--but so what? And DERRICK McKEY? Are you kidding me?
