so upcoming FAs:
Meeks (team option)
Good thing is, Metta, Pau, have 2 more years. So they can be traded next year to a team that is trying to rebuild, since they will also have expiring contracts.
There's some good FAs that are gonna be available this year. It would be possible to trade Pau and Metta, and be able to sign somebody like Josh Smith.
Also, a lot of other good roll players and starters at the guard position.
We have to keep Dwight obviously and I'd like us to keep Clark. We can keep Meeks if we can't get another shooter on the market for the mini-mid level (Kyle Korver, I'm looking at you). Otherwise, we're kind of f**ked. Mitch would have to make something happen with Pau and/or MWPs contracts if he wants to change this roster. Also, Nash is looking like he might be done in the sense that his problems aren't going to go away. Retirement might be on the horizon for him.
MWP has a player option for $7 mill or so next year. We should tell him that we'll amnesty him if he takes the option, that way we can resign him for the veterans minimum (I don't think anyone is giving him more than that...really no one should).
Ya, we do have to keep Howard now. Clark would be okay to keep if he can come cheap, he's way to inconsistent to make anything above 3-4 mil. As far as Meeks goes, we can surely upgrade him, he was also very inconsistent from 3pt and looked lost on defense half the time.
We can pick up some good guards this year, guys like Jarret Jack, DJ Augstine, Stuckey, Devin Harris, Aaron Brooks. Brandon Jennings should be at the top of the list for any team looking for a starting PG as well. Mayo, Tony Allen, Kevin Martin, also won't be to expensive they are all upgrades over any of our bench players.
