OK, the starters are set.

PG- Damon
SG- DA
C- Theo
PF- Zach
SF- SAR

As to reserves, no doubt Miles is gone as we can't & won't sign him for the $$ he deserves. We also have a couple of draft picks at this point. I would project our primay reserves to be:

PG- Cook
SG- Quintel
C- DD (or Stephy if DD is history)
PF- DD or Patterson
SF- Patterson

Obviously we're one good backup frontcourt player away.

Is this a team that can win big? I say yes EXCEPT for the fact Damon won't lead us anywhere. If we can move him and obtain a real NBA PG then we have a chance to be a very good team. Woods will be better, Zach's defense can only improve.

But PG is our serious weakness.

The reason I don't think so is that Theo & SAR are making big dollars. When we resign Zach it will also be for big $$. Damon is still killing us with his salary so resiging Miles runs counter to the management objectives. Also, Miles knows that he will be a backup only and often playing less than 8 mpg. No way he'll stand for that.

Bottom line- he won't want to be here and we can't afford him. Note this- unless we trade SAR, Miles will NOT be a Blazer next year.
