We're getting Randolph we have too many forwards no defense and the plan has flopped.

I'd say we go for the S&T, and then focus on Melo next season.

Arar'e is all about health. He's either great or another McDyess.

Nope, Amare is a top 5 PF in the league. He's a good starting point and the S/T with Lee is going to help a lot. A PG is still a major concern.

Take the GSW sign and trade deal.

Sign Felton. Keep the capspace open for next year.

Houston has our pick next season too and we have no picks. We have to build a win now team despite those guys and the only way we can beat them is building defensively.

Exactly, this is no big suprise. No reason to panic.


And Randolph will be a nice addition......Especially when we risk losing out on getting anything for Lee....

Amare still has clout with other players, especially Western Conference players.

With a super team in Miami, there's a good chance that other great players like Melo and Parker will want to team up now to topple Goliath.

We're going to need Amare to recruit.
