A ton of Options Left

It's alittle dissapointing to see a guy like Nash slip through the cracks, and a ton of people are either dissapointed or glad we didn't get Nash, but there are still a ton of upgrades available on the Market and multiple options the Raps could explore:

Available FA's (upgrades over what we have on the roster):

Shannon Brown, Brandon Bass, Jeff Green, Kirk Heinrich, Ersan Ilyasova, Antawn Jamieson, Chris Kaman, Carl Landry, O.J Mayo, Javale McGee, Ramon Sessions, J.R. Smith, Nick Young, Brandon Roy

Here's my take:

Amnesty either Kleiza or Amir and forget about the Landry Fields offer (provided the reports are true and they never actually agreed).

Throw a ton of cash at the combination of Jeff Green, Ersan Ilyasova and Chris Kaman.

Try and move Derozan and Bayless together to whoever will take them and get whatever you can get back, I'm thinking Denver, Uriji might owes Bryan a favour. looking at Denvers roster I like Corey Brewer, or Jordan Hamilton or maybe even the Birdman depending on circumstances.

So at 5 we have the combo of Valuncunias and Kaman solid veteran leadership and a young rook

at 4 we have Bargs and Ed and maybe Birdman

3 we have Ilyasova, James Johnson and possibly Brewer or Hamilton

Play Jeff Green at 2 with Ross coming off the bench

Keep Uzoh and have Calderon log big minutes.

Now if you don't like my combination of 3 you could really add any 3 from that list provided they fit all together.

Ideally if I were to only add 2 I would go with Ilyasova and Mayo. Mayo would give us an alpha male at 2 which is what we desperatley need and Ilyasova just does everything well.

It's a complete rebuild but still staying really young and allowing us to upgrade at numerous positions.
