    Default Is it possible to get Emeka Okafor,Kirk Hinrich and Leandro Barbosa?

    I do not think we need another Star player on our team. Those players are exactly what we need. Is it possible to get the three of them?Lets assume we traded Varejao,Pavlovic,Wally,Damon,Dwayne or maybe Big Ben.

    Our lineup

    Z
    Okafor
    Lebron
    Barbosa
    Hinrich

    Big Ben/Hickson
    Joe Smith
    Devin
    Gibson
    West

    No chance in hell..I highly doubt we get any of them...

    Okafor is main guy in Charlotte, Chicago won't help us, and I haven't heard of us being interested in Barbosa.

    We'll probably sign a lower tier guy and hope to pull off a trade.

    Going in the trade ideas threads makes me laugh. You people actually think were going to get 3 starters for our lineup. Getting one would be a great off-season for us, 2 would be amazing. 3, just stop.

    No its not possible. No way we get all 3 of them. mybe 1. I would love barbosa, and He's on the block. But there going to want talent in return, not expirings.

    Really? How many championship teams lately have one star on their squad?

    Personally I think okafor would be perfect, and he might not be a star, but he is close. barbosa in a starting lineup could put up 20 points and become a star also, but barbosa is not the type of play mb likes. I do see him alot since i live in phoenix, and i absolutely love his game next to Lebron, but like I said, to short and would be our starting sg here.

    Not sure why hindrich, he isnt enough better than west and would be our 48th combo guard on this squad. (I know barbosa is a comb0 guard too, but his explosiveness would be special on this team)

    you mean besides the Spurs?

    (i love both Parker and Manu, but neither have been 'stars' when they've won titles, they're above average/very good players... though Manu took everything up a notch last year)

    that being said, though I like all 3 players, I only want Okefor or Hinrich if there's another deal for a scorer (like adding Redd and Hinrich or Redd and Okafor)

    I'm only so-so on Barbosa. I'm not sure it's a good sign that he's on the block while Steve Nash is getting older

    You can always try acquiring talented players through Osmosis. That should never be an under rated method.
