Trade Ajinca and Asik for cap space.

Trade Ajinca and Frazier for Spencer Dinwiddie and Joe Harris
Trade Asik to the Pacers for their non-guaranteeds: Christmas, Young, and Niang

Let Cunningham opt out.
Stretch Poindexter

Re-sign Holiday
Draft: Josh Hart
Sign: Anthony Brown

Holiday/Dinwiddie/Moore
Hart/Crawford/Harris
Hill/Brown/Toupane

Here's an article from M. McNammara on Bourbon Street Shots, presenting some great options for if Holiday signs elsewhere:

Pels are in bind if he leaves. The timing thing is crucial.

Plan B (or A)

1) Convince Milos Teodosic or Thomas Heurtel to sign.
2) Sign and trade Holiday for Carmelo Anthony (convincing Anthony)
3) Hire Ettore Messina
4) Sign Anthony Randolph and Tyler Honeycutt

Teodosic or Heurtel/Dinwiddie/Jerrells
Moore/Crawford
Anthony/Hill/Honeycutt
Davis/Randolph
Cousins/Diallo/Christmas

Great for marketing.
High scoring.

No idea what to do with Jrue.

I'd probably retain him to be on the safe side and then trade him at the deadline if he's flopping.

Yeah, I think it's smart to definitely keep him.

Keeping Holiday is smart.
Not wise to go over18 million a year to keep the 3rd best player on the team.

I think it's tougher to lose an asset for nothing than to overpay, particularly if you are going to be over the cap anyway. If they pay him a little less, does that give them much cap space to sign someone? It's very hard to sign FA's that are difference makers anyway. Even a bigger contract is probably tradeable if need be. They need continuity to try and keep Cousins.

Demps was scouting Thomas Heurtel in Istanbul last weekend.

He'll be watching Anthony Randolph later in this week.
At least he's looking in the right places.

Holiday
Randolph

Cousins

or

Heurtel
Thornwell
Randolph

Turn Ajinca into a first round pick and draft Sindarius Thorwell

Sign Epke Udoh to replace Ajinca.
Sign Derrick Brown to replace Cunningham

Heurtel, Ragland or Jerrells, and Frazier can hold down the point for now.

Heurtel/Ragland/Frazier
Thornwell/Moore/Crawford
Randolph/Hill
Davis/Diallo
Cousins/Udoh

When your bigs can pass, other players can dominate the post at times: see Randolph and Thornwell
Beat teams down with defense and dominate the paint.

Davis/Diallo
Cousins/Ajinca

Darius Miller
