I could understand buying him out if you had a shot at Deron Williams or Gordon or Hibbert or maybe even Batum.

    Doesn't make any sense to me. But do have fun with the joyride that is Young. Probably the only player in this league that could manage to convince himself that he was better at creating his own shot than Chris Paul.
    Cutting Brand makes room for the young guys, as you just stated in your post. No point in having Brand when the 76ers love Moultrie and want him to get PT from day one. Plus they may go after Humphries or Ilyasova, but I personally hope not. Maybe Ilyasova, but just not a fan of Humphries. I'd prefer to just roll with Moultrie who's a terrific athlete and rebounder.

    As for Brand, I have a feeling we're targeting Kris Humphries or Ilyasova.
    That's why I like Young a little more. Young is a better stand still shooter, but the main difference between the two is that Lou is better at driving to the basket.

    Humphries is someone who can bring a good inside presence. Ilyasova I don't know much about, but I wouldn't mind bringing him in.

    Humphries is a tough, gritty player down low. But for 10 mil a year, no thanks.

    Exactly, way too much money for that kind of guy. Maybe bring in a guy like Ilyasova. How much would he be worth?

    He'd probably ask about the same, and to be honest, I think I'd do it. I like Ilyasova. Terrific rebounder. Terrific shooter. Can run the floor. Good athlete. Good finisher in the paint on pick and roll, cuts, etc. Very solid post defender, though not much of a shot blocker. Just not a whole lot of negatives about his game. We'd still need to get a shotblocker at center though. Wonder if the staff has any interest in Javale McGee who'd be a perfect fit. Doubt Collins would want to put up with his stupidity though, then again they did just sign Nick Young.

    From the few Bucks games that I saw last year, he was a solid all around player. I play fantasy basketball, and he was great on my team for most of the season lol.

    I guess I've just never understood this half in half out attitude that so many NBA teams seem content employing. What's the point in striving to field a team that maybe can win a playoff series?

    Hopefully not us. He made $8 million last year and had his best season of his career, so not that far off.

    Looks like we traded an undisclosed future draft pick for Dorrell Wright. Depending on the pick, it's a good deal since Wright only has one year left. Good luck in L.A. or wherever Mr. Iguodala.
