Players that need a fresh start!

Andrea Bargnani- with DeRozen and Davis as the new core of this team, and Raps frustrated with his play, Bargs is most likely be moved. Look for teams with a legit center to be interested as Bargs can stretch the floor out.

Johnny Flynn- With Rubio rumoring to come over and flynn having struggled, and been injury prone, He will probably be traded, perhaps to a team in need of a backup pg, or team with veteran pg who can help him transition to a starter.

Rip and Prince- with new owners coming in, its gonna be time to blow this team up,Prince will be a free agent and most likely leave on his own while Rip will probably have to get a buyout(if possible), and move to a team as an veteran scorer.

Brendon Jennings- in an earlier post I stated the buck are looking to trade him expect him to land on a contendor if so.Rumors are lakers are interested to replace fisher

Iggy- He has stated he wants to win, so sixers will most likely try to move him, this will free up spots for evan turner and also Thad Young. Iggy will fit in well with a team that has scorers, and that is not a dominent scorer but a great athlete who plays defense and a little bit of everything

Monta Ellis- GS will have to once in for all decide who they will keep Ellis or Curry, I think they pick Curry as he is younger and more a distributer. Monta will be perfect for a team with a need with a spark of offense, He might be a great sixth man/starter for a team

Omri Casspi- has stated publicly about his frustrations about his role on the kings, Even though the kings will most likely not move him, I think he needs a fresh start.

TOL23

I was but he played pretty well in the playoffs and it seems like the Grizz like him again. He does need a fresh start with another team but I dont see it happening anytime soon unless the right deal comes along

OJ Mayo has "sixth man"

OJ Mayo has "sixth man" written all over him. He really isn't big enough to start at 2. And I am not sure he is fast enough to start at point. Don't know what else he wants. His strengths are being maximized (but yeah he should probalby play around 30 minutes a night including some at point guard with Tony Allen playing around 20-25 minutes a night) and he is on a young and promising contender. I am not sure he is a starter on a great team. Does he want to be a first option chucker on a bad team?

He is also a rather streaky shooter who was in a bad shooting slump for most of the year. But he had a really good playoffs and should fit in nicely next year.

Last year the trade on the table was OJ for Josh McRoberts straight up. McRoberts doesn't even start, so I am not sure how much value he has, though I do think his value went up.

OJ would be a great sixth man on the Bulls (could play behind either Bogans or Rose) but I would want a combination of Taj Gibson, Asik, the 28th pick, and the 30th pick. If they wouldn't trade Gibson or Asik (which they probably won't want to trade) then I would want the 28th pick, the 30th pick, the 44th pick, and CJ Watson (a fairly decent backup point guard).

The Bulls need to look at getting Rip Hamilton. They need a guy who can actually score.

Jrswish

Jr smith
He has the talent to be one of the top SG's in the league.
He just needs some direction and better basketball iq.
He has everything physically ( 3 point range , defense, slashing ability , handle and playmaking).
I feel he knees to be on a team with strict coaching and a veteran sg to help mold jr.
A team like San Antonio would be a great fit popovich and Manu would only help.
He could also just go on a team for slot of minutes like Phoenix and put up big numbers.

Bargs on Indiana playing PF

Bargs on Indiana playing PF next to Hibbert would be a nightmare to defend.

I have to disagree on

I have to disagree on Jennings. Everybody in Milwaukee loves the guy. Hes the first guy in a while that has shown flashes of being a potential superstar. That potential has slipped some after struggling with his shooting and consistency, but they pretty much have given him free reign in the offense since hes been here, something he wouldnt have been able to do anywhere else with how inefficient he has been. You could tell he didnt have the same explosiveness and quickness as he did his rookie year. I wanna see what him and Bogut can do finally 100% healthy next year. Too early to give up on someone theyve had so much faith in.

Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams

Joe is not a true #1, he needs to go somewhere else to a team that wants him even though they know he is not a true #1.

Marvin Williams because he needs a last chance before they just label him Kwame Brown's little brother.

Johnny Flynn- With Rubio

Johnny Flynn- With Rubio rumoring to come over and flynn having struggled, and been injury prone, He will probably be traded, perhaps to a team in need of a backup pg, or team with veteran pg who can help him transition to a starter.

I don't think Flynn should leave, because if Rubio does not pan out the team is still his. Will Rubio come in from Day 1 and start will be the question. Flynn has a young core around him that have showed promise.

Brendon Jennings- in an earlier post I stated the buck are looking to trade him expect him to land on a contendor if so.Rumors are lakers are interested to replace fisher

By all means why does he need to go anywhere? He is a starting PG on a team he took to the playoffs in his rookie year. Not to mention he is the #1 option.

Monta Ellis- GS will have to once in for all decide who they will keep Ellis or Curry, I think they pick Curry as he is younger and more a distributer. Monta will be perfect for a team with a need with a spark of offense, He might be a great sixth man/starter for a team

Monta needs to stay put because this is his team also. Just because Curry came in everyone thinks the team should be Curry's to take over. I can guarantee that if Monta were gone they would be in the Top 5 of the Lottery.

Flynn- Always mentioned in trade rumors from twolves, they have been searching for a trade for a while

Jennings- Recent reports have said they basically gave up on him and willing to trade him.

Monta- I somewhat agree, Hes been there a while, I picked him because he should at least be on a winning team, Hes always snubbed from all stars, he deserves one.

Just because I mentioned people doesnt mean I want them gone, This comes from specualtion on what I have read or and how I think they will max thier potential. Flynn would be better on another team, Jennings, I want him on the Bucks, and Monta, want him on a winning team.

Basterdinabasket

Where we're you at when I posted the bucks interest in trading him. I said he can be a potential allstar and everyone kept saying he was a average player at best.

@Akoo- marvin williams puts up decent number I would never put him and kwame in the same category. Hes not a allstar or anything but he is a pretty good player who contributes. Joe Johnson isnt going anywhere he just sign a max contract, Hawks are stupid for giving him one when hes getting up there in age.

Jsmove- Maybe Offensive, but defensive that would be horrible, Bargs needs a defensive center next to him.

J.r. smith could be an allstar if he was given more a chance to be, He gets a lot of heat for bad performances, He might be traded or sign somewhere else.

bargs defense isnt half as

bargs defense isnt half as bad as you make it out to be... with another big that can help him defensively in ed davis he should be fine...

as far as rip and tayshaun go, they needed to be out of detroit 2 years ago (at least rip anyways)... this team has some good up and coming players at both of their positions (gordon, daye, jerebko) and wouldnt need to find replacements for them... however, their biggest concerns are at the point and center positions... stuckey just isnt a point guard and who knows how much longer ben wallace will play...

I think Rudy Fernandez should

I think Rudy Fernandez should be on this list too. With the right team I think he would be quite a useful role player.

At the start of this season

At the start of this season Roy HIbbert showed signs of being a defensive beast, he was in top 5 in blocks and just a huge presence in the post. Sure he lost a bit of consistency after being pissed around by O'Brien but i think with a fresh start and hopefully Frank Vogel in charge he can get back to playing really good D so i guy like Bargnani would fit in perfectly.

Bargnani defense is better

Bargnani defense is better than a lot of people making it out to be, but his rebounding and mentality is a big concern.

He definitely do not have the mentality to be a 1st option let alone for a franchise player. He is usually very calm and cool, and he doesn't seem to have any fire. He doesn't seem to care about winning or losing. He isn't a lazy guy, but he just doesn't have the heart and fire to play to his full potential.

He would be a very good 3rd option and a legit offensive big man. If he can play with a big man who plays in the post with fire and hustle, he would look much better. He defends slow big man well with his size and length, but he doesn't box out on rebound and try to avoid contact.

His biggest weakness is his rebounding, he just doesn't have the hunger for it.

Unfortunately, the Raptors is

Unfortunately, the Raptors is full of PFs like Ed Davis and Amir Johnson (at some point, I hoped that Amir can fill the post player spot, but he doesn't really have the strength for it.)

The Raptors need a legit defensive C who would hustle and work hard to defend the paint. That's why I hope they would draft Bismack Biyombo. Although Bismack does not have the fundamental yet (that's why he isn't as good a rebounder as he is supposed to be), but he appears to have the work ethic, toughness, and fire to develop into a very good defensive force.

I would be fine with Jonas Valanciunas, but I see the Cavs taking him at #4.

I agree with you 100% if he returns to the raps next season it will interesting to see how he will perform as the star player with one year under his belt

On Monta Ellis

Being a GS fan, I always try to avoid the Monta-Curry debates. Thing is, you have to give up something to get something. If Monta was 65-67, he would be a keeper. Thing is, he isnt. 63 combo guard come out every year. The fact that GS hired Jerry West makes me think Monta will be traded now more then ever because Jerry West once said that the problem of the small backcourt in GS wasnt Curry. a 63 PG is a good thing to have. Its having a 63 SG in Monta thats the problem...paraphrasing what Jerry West said.
