So we need to free up a spot. We could of course buy out Shannon, but we all know that Newble will be shopped agressively this season in an effort to get something to help us before his deal is off our books. For the sake of discussion, and because the possibilities are more attractive, less discuss deals that would involve Newble.

There are three names that are out there all the time who I think we as Cavs fans all agree could help us substantially and fortunately all three are on only 2 year deals. They are:

Andre Miller (9 mil a season for the next two years)
Corey Magette (7.8 million, 8.4 million on a player option)
Ron Artest (7.8 million this year, 8.5 million on a player option for year two

Not to say there is mutual interest from other teams, but all the above guys would all work for a deal that involved Newble and either Damon or Donyell. Are there 2 for 1's out there for productive players that we could do with this combination or Newble/Donyell or Damon who I've excluded?

What about 2 for 1's that involve Newble and Shannon? It would have to bring back one player making between 3.375 million and 5.625 million. That opens up several more possibilities. Who's out there for that amount we would want?

Steve Blake and Damon Stoudamire seem like possibilities here...

i wish we could toss hakim into the mix with damon for newble and shannon. him running the floors and his midrange game would be nice when wanted to run small. not to mention jacobsen has taken a lot of his minutes in memphis. wishful thinking but a boy can dream.

i'm not really that in love with damon stoudamire. i would like to get one of their young assets in addition if we use newble on him. we really do have quite a lot to work with given snow, damon, donyell, and newble's deals.

as for portland, they'll definitely move a guard at some point. sergio hardly gets the time to dazzle. i love his game thus far.

Setting your sights a bit high for what we have to offer I think Midget. Think Juan Dixon.

no sights here b mac. just dreaming and trying to see what's out there in the low end bracket (3.6-5.2). i'm as cynical and skeptical as i always am that it will be one of those three names i listed in the first post, but at least in addition to being talented, they are all playing ahead of guys that pretty average teams want to get more floor time and have been mentioned in trade rumors. that gives me a shred of hope.

I think this is the next step for Ferry as well. Sorry to re-post in two threads, but I think this information belongs in this thread:

Western Conference:

Teams with two open roster spots: Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns.

Teams with one open roster spot: Spurs, Griz, Hornets, Supersonics, Lakers, Kings.


Eastern Conference:

Teams with two open roster spots: Wizards (Larry luvs u)

Teams with one open roster spot: Indiana (not likely), Celtics (ha), New Jersey (hmmm), Bobcats (obviously).

Luke Ridnour might fit the bill.

Dwayne Jones + Shannon Brown for Josh Boone?

They have an open roster spot so this would be possible and this could also give us some immediate cap space with us taking back either a TE or cash...

We get a big, which the Nets have an abundance of, to help out...

Ira Newble + Shannon Brown for Adam Morrison?

Not sure the Bobcats would accept this but we basically swap a couple of disappointing first round picks for a change of scenery...

Shannon Brown + Ira Newble for Brent Barry?

The Spurs get a little younger and more athletic on the wing with Shannon for Barry who isn't playing much as it is...

Ira Newble + Shannon Brown for Rasual Butler?

Just something, without a reason...

Ira Newble + Shannon Brown for Mickael Gelabale?

^ Ditto.

Ira Newble + Shannon Brown for Sasha Vujacic?

^ Ditto.

All the possible scenarios I could think of... With limited teams to trade with, not a lot of possibilities...
