With the team we have now...we are on a 5 game win streak.
Why rush to sign so many other guys, especially who are expensive? If it ain't broke, why fix it?
While this doesn't mean we are a team capable of 82-0 or even necessarily a 50 win team...I think the way the team is constituted...it is a playoff team (in the East) and even a .500 team
Look how the team has improved, with the coaching staff and especially D-Will as a leadership catalyst.
While it is fun to look at potential pickups, in my opinion, they are not smart maneuvers.
I think we need to make medium signings, and leave flexibility for 2012.
This doesn't mean do nothing and leave all our space, but leave some of it, so we can be flexible to make a trade and then easily sign a max contract.
I personally, like the idea of signing AK47 as a starting 3. I think it's a good fit. From there, we can find a backup SG and backup PF either in the draft or by signing someone for CHEAP (less than 3 million a year).
Why pay even 5mill for a backup SG when we have morrow, and we like to play 2 PG's in the backcourt. It also seems like Gaines can also guard the 2 and thus play the backup 2 position for us.
In terms of PF. Humphries has shown he can start. He is a good fit and only getting more impressive. Petro is a decent backup C (especially defensively). We can also play outlaw or AK47 at the 4. Therefore why waste money on a PF?
I think with AK47 and a couple rookies. This Nets could win 45-50 games. And set themselves up to sign a nice FA piece in 2012. Reminder, D-Will just joined us, and our team is young and able to improve.
