Thoughts about trade/draft/free agency

I’ve been thinking about the off-season and draft very seriously for the past few days. Here is what I would do at the moment.

1st Option - Joakim Noah for Byron Mullens, Nenad Krstic (or Nick Collison), the 21st draft pick, and the 32nd draft pick. If successful (highly unlikely) then draft the best perimeter shooter available with the 26th draft pick. Trade or stash the 51st draft pick.

If unsuccessful, then offer various combinations of D. J. White, Kyle Weaver, Nenad Krstic, Byron Mullens, Nick Collison, 21st draft pick, 26th draft pick, 32nd draft pick, and 51st draft pick to move up in the draft for one of the following players.

2nd Option – The projected 13th pick Daniel Orton (or Udoh if available) for (any combo of White, Weaver, Krstic, Mullens, Collison), the 21st draft pick, and the 26th draft pick. Then draft a perimeter shooter with the 32nd pick. Trade or stash the 51st draft pick.

3rd Option – The projected 14th pick Hassan Whiteside for (any combo of White, Weaver, Krstic, Mullens), the 21st draft pick, and the 32nd draft pick. Draft a perimeter shooter with the 26th pick. Trade or stash the 51st draft pick.

4th Option – The projected 18th pick Larry Sanders for (White and/or Weaver), the 21st draft pick, and the 32nd draft pick. Draft a perimeter shooter with the 26th pick.

5th Option – If Orton, Udoh, Whiteside, or Sanders are available at the 21st pick, draft in that sequence. Draft Seraphin if he is available with the 26th pick. Draft a perimeter shooter with the 32nd draft pick. Trade or stash the 51st draft pick.

6th Option – Draft Kevin Seraphin with the 21st draft pick. Trade D. J. White, Kyle Weaver (and possibly Krstic), and the 26th draft pick for Javale McGee. Draft the best perimeter shooter with the 32nd pick. Trade or stash the 51st draft pick.

7th Option - Draft Kevin Seraphin with the 21st draft pick. See what trades are available for the 26th draft pick and D. J. White. The following guys have miss substantial time due to injuries, but they are still worth considering: Robin Lopez, Marreese Speights, and Anthony Randolph. Draft the best perimeter shooter with the 32nd pick. Trade or stash the 51st draft pick.

8th Option - Draft Kevin Seraphin with the 21st draft pick. Draft the best perimeter shooter with the 26th pick. Reach down for Jerome Jordan or Jarvis Varnado with the 32nd draft pick. Trade or stash the 51st draft pick.

9th Option - Draft Solomon Alabi with the 21st draft pick. Draft a perimeter shooter with the 26th draft pick. Trade or stash the 32nd & 51st draft picks.

10th Option – Draft the best guard or small forward available with the 21st draft pick. Trade or stash the 26th, 32nd, 51st draft picks. Sign David Lee or Luis Scola during free agency.

11th Option - Draft the best guard or small forward available with the 21st draft pick. Trade or stash the 26th, 32nd, 51st draft picks. Sign Hakim Warrick or Udonis Haslem during free agency.

12th Option - Draft the best guard or small forward available with the 21st draft pick. Trade or stash the 26th, 32nd, 51st draft picks. Sign Ian Mahinmi during free agency.

Of course this is all subject to change.
