    With the Spurs owning many expiring contracts, the spurs front office may question the " 2010 plan" because of many teams having cap space for the summer of Le'Bron.

    With that the Spurs may not want to waste another year with 66 percent of the big 3 slowly deteriorating as Manu and Tim will ride off into the sunset after the year 2012 or maybe sooner. Therefore the FO may push all in ASAP instead of waiting and gambling on signing a big name free agent 2010, which may be very unlikely.

    If we are able to sign a capable athletic back up such as Carney/ Moon/ Barnes/ Jones with the LLE. And sign Sheed with the MLE. I think it would make the most sense to package up Mason/ Bonner/ Oberto/ Bowen to Milwaukee for Richard Jefferson.
    They were on the cusp on trading Richard Jefferson to the Blazers for Raef LaFrentz and Travis Outlaw for financial reasons. That makes me believe this could be a realistic possibility.

    I'm for it.

    Defensive wing, can slash to the basket and make the occasional open three. Good character guy.

    Has Spur written all over him.


    Ownership and the FO probobly won't let it happen.

    I think he'd be a great pickup, especially for Bonner+Fin+KT.

    That'd be more of a fantasy than a dream. Bring it on!

    Too good to be true. I know the expiring contracts would be attractive but it's hard to believe that a combination of Oberto, Finley, Bonner, Thomas, Bowen, picks, cash, whatever could get it done.

    i don't know what the spurs can offer. portland could give the bucks travis outlaw, someone full of talent and length at SF. with vaughn leaving, spurs' only promising player, george hill, will be needed.

    It should get it done if the Bucks aren't a playoff team next season. Another posibility is, if Manu continues with the pattern of this last season (injured and not at his level), to use his expiring contract.

    The only chance the Spurs have is if the Bucks are looking for a straight salary dump. If that is the case there are plenty of options.

    RJ is almost the perfect fit for Spurs' SF spot.

    Bucks will have some luxury tax troubles next year. Spurs with Bowen and Oberto partially guaranteed contracts have the ability to make an offer that will allow Bucks to save money as soon as next year.

    Providing Spurs are ready to say goodbye to the 2010 plan and Bucks are ready to nearly salary dump him, it could be interesting.

    A trade like Oberto+Bowen+Thomas+picks for Jefferson would be great for SA.

    Re-sign Bowen and put Finley in the trash and Spurs have a great perimeter rotation:

    PG : Parker/Hill
    SG : Ginobili/Mason
    SF : Jefferson/Bowen

    After that, you spend the MLE on bigs and

    That is pretty much my ideal scenario that I outlined. If the Spurs could get Richard Jefferson, then it would mean the Bucks are looking for straight salary dump and really have no interest in Hill. So you can do Mason+Bowen+Oberto (which works) for RJ.

    Then you could go after Sheed.

    Sheed/Duncan/RJ/Manu/TP
    KT/Ian or Bonner/Bowen (bought out)/Mason/Hill

    Redd is a chucker who just came off tearing his ACL and is very very limited defensively.

    That's our problem we have too many players outside our big 3 that can do that and that only even if they didn't fall against the mavs.

    Jefferson hasn't been a good defender in 2 years, but he CAN play D, he's shown it in the past..he's also a slasher that we need..

    Redd doesn't fit here..

    KT/Gist/Hairston/Manu/Hill/Bowen/Bonner

    I hope Ian, Hill, Gist, and Hairston prove they deserve to be in Pop's 9-man rotation come the '10 playoffs.

    We have to remember that trade targets like this and "the 2010 plan" aren't necessarily mutually exclusive. Many of us have suggested that "the 2010 plan" is in fact a plan to build up expiring contracts and take a sure-thing trade for a star rather than risk dealing with the 2010 free agent market.

    Still rather have Outlaw, but Jefferson's going to get to the line A LOT, though his jumper's still a bit inconsistent. Very athletic too. Would be a good teammate and is very compe ive.
