PG-Baron Davis, Toney Douglas, Mike Bibby
SG-Landry Fields, Iman Shumpert
SF-Carmelo Anthony, Bill Walker, Ronaldo Balkman
PF-Amare Stoudemire, Josh Harrellson
C-Tyson Chandler, Jared Jeffries, Jerome Jordan
Would like to sign James Posey if possible.
I could see Shumpert unseating Fields to become the starting guard.
Sucks that Shawne Williams decided to sign with the Nets. He was a nice, versatile player off the bench and likely would have been our best bench player for the front court. Harrelson and Jordan are big bodies and could potentially be serviceable, but they're both unknowns right now. I don't hate Bill Walker, he's pretty athletic and can shoot. Not a bad bench option. I can't stand Jared Jeffries, but it still looks as if he'll see significant minutes. Balkman is god awful, I hope he never sees the floor.
As far Baron, definitely a much needed signing and he's still a real quality player when healthy. In terms of his back injury, it sounds as if the reports of his condition pre-amnesty were a bit exaggerated. Reports prior to the amnesty were that it would keep him out 8-10 weeks, but now it's sounding like it's going to be more like 4 weeks, maybe 6 at the max. A healthy Baron with the weapons already in place in the frontcourt could be a very good fit. He's going to get to operate in one-on-one situations at all times and he'll thrive in that. I think Bibby will also see minimal minutes, which is good, because I don't think he really has anything left in the tank.
