Team Needs for this Offseason: East

East:
Atlanta Hawks: Find out who they want to re-sign: Marvin Williams, Flip Murray or Mike Bibby. Also add depth to the bench (veteran help) and get a point guard.

Boston Celtics: Re-sign Glen Davis or Leon Powe (maybe both). Also sign Eddie House. Find a way to get a first round draft pick to add youth to this team.

Charlotte Bobcats: Figure out what to do with Raymond Felton. Draft a potential player, not always a great college player! Also add a shooting guard. Allen Iverson maybe?

Chicago Bulls: Surround Rose with good role players. Re-sign Gordon and find a way to trade Deng. Need a rebounder off of the bench.

Clevland Cavaliers: Both Ilgauskas and Varejao are free agents. Need to seriously add to their frontline, particularly shooting front court players to spread the floor.

Detroit Pistons: Completely re-build, not "On-the-Go" trade Prince, trade Hamilton, Fire Curry and get young talent. They should trade up in the draft and try to get attractive talent to attract 2010 free agents.

Indiana Pacers: Re-sign Jarrett Jack or Marquis Daniels. They need to add bench post players. Get Mike Dunleavy into playing shape again.

Miami Heat: Do not do anything that will decimate their future. Keep adding young talent to surround Wade. Need post players. Try to extend Wade's contract.

Milwaukee Bucks: Try to re-sign Ramon Sessions, not Charlie Villanueva. This should be a re-building summer. Trade Redd and Jefferson. Try to make Bogut into a formidable center who would attract free agents. Get young defensive talent to support Scott Skiles system.

New Jersey Nets: They need to add a back-up backcourt player. Preferably a shooting guard, if they plan to trade Carter. Add good depth. Need an upgrade at the Power Foward.

New York Knicks: Try to keep David Lee, not Nate Robinson. Lee is a great player who would attract 2010 free agents. Also get many draft picks this year to help build this young team.

Orlando Magic: Find a replacement for Turkoglu if he leaves. Also add a backup center if Foyle and Gortat leave.

Philadelphia 76ers: Add a point guard and a center. Dalembert wants out and same with Miller. Get shooters and a new good coach.

Toronto Raptors: Give Chris Bosh a good sidekick from this years draft. Many good shooting guards available (Derozan, Harden, and Evans).

Washington Wizards: Try to unload the monster contracts of Arenas and Jamison. Pray for a good draft pick at either 1 or 2. Get a new good coach who can develop Javale McGee.

What do you think?

The East needs everything

The East needs everything that will allow the eighth seed to at least have a winning record to make the playoffs. It's embarassing to see the Detriot Pistons make the playoffs with a 39-43 losing record while the Utah Jazz struggled to make the playoffs in the West with 48 wins.

D Hamp I agree with you. I

D Hamp I agree with you. I hope you don't get mad lol. Hubie Brown is pretty basketball savy but there are are better people out there. Also I don't mind how the East was this year because all of the team in the East had a remote chance at the playoffs. It may take a while because there are a lot stupid GM's in the East. Their talent level is on the West level but they lack the ability to form complete teams. Some of West worst teams were comaparable to the East middle teams. Next year if years Gm's are wise, both coasts will have some serious playoff battles. Charlotte, Washington, New York, Indiana could possible be in the playoff next year. I think it is pretty set in the West right now except two great teams may not make it next year.

cavs

so if the cavs need a shootin bigman, either PF or C, and the bucks will probably let charlie v go, than wouldnt it be a good pick up for cleveland to get villanueva, a PF with range... it seems like it could or could not fit because charlie might want to much money and he might want to many shots... but he would sure open the floor for LBJ

Haha, you gotta be crazy to

Haha, you gotta be crazy to think someone would take Gil Zero's ridiculous contract, 6 yrs 111 million for a shoot-first point guard with crazy antics and hasn't played in two years.
In the words of Hubie Brown, " You are Flip Saunders! You must find a way to win with this helter skelter Line-up in a pathetic Southeast Division"

the bulls needs

the bulls need to draft a backup sf and backup pf in the draft. luol deng is one of the better defenders in the league and the only one on the team who can guard paul pierce or any big shooting guard/small forward. salmons is a 2 guard and ben gordon will be a free agent and want big bucks. ben gordan had a 42pts 0reb 1ast 0blk 1stl game in the playoffs. who scores over 40 and can only do two other things to help the team not to mention ray allen went off in the same game and they lost. gordon is overrated and salmons is a better/more efficient scorer at the 2 spot and a way better defender. hinrich is a perfect backup guard for the pg and sg. pg-rose sg-salmons sf-deng pf-thomas c-noah. backup pg/sg hinrich,
backup c miller. i think dejuan blair at 16 will be the perfect pf they need who can score down low. his 7'3'' wingspan makes up for his lack of height and i think hes a perfect fit. i also like sam young at 26 as the backup small forward. i think hes got nba ready game and good backup fit. any thoughts

Villanueva to the Cavs...

Woah I never really thought of Charlie V. going to the Cavs.
Yeah he would seem to be a great fit, especially when he plays well.

Ish y don't we just put LeBron on the Bucks along with Mo Williams and the Cavs were targeting Michael Redd and Richard Jefferson too.

The only thing I saw wrong

The only thing I saw wrong with that is the Bulls. They have 2 rebounding specialists already. They really need a low post presence on offense so that they dont die in the halfcourt like they did in the playoffs this year. Deng will help them get the #4 seed next year.

Too funny...

Charlie V is a nice idea, but wouldn't he require to much money.

D Hamp I doubt dude was

D Hamp I doubt dude was being personal but you do know that putting all that out like that kind of makes you a target and considering most of out discussion can not be proven until the situation happens we are just people opinions and you know how that goes. I disagree and agree with you sometimes but I appreciate your opinions and your commitment to being a fellow b ball fan like myself.
