a chill deadline, maybe Varejao

Although the route management elected to go roster-wise last winter was not to my liking exactly, it was very sensible and -obvious statement omitted-. So this year we do not have any weaknesses that can be easily addressed, unless -you know what, no need to expound upon obvious statement-. So we are in a great position macrofinancially with about 16+ months left before salary cap heaven. Let's not tamper by trying to add a 'star' especially if there is a rookie already in place that is likely to match or exceed his performance WHILE STILL ON ROOKIE SCALE. I am not concerned about the 1. We have a starter with, feel free to quote: dimers, shakems, and jiznay. We have a backup in his prime who is strong, quick, and confident, and if he doesn't come back, we can get another worthwhile backup as easily as we got him. I am not concerned about the 2. We have a starter who is like Reggie Miller with defense. We have a backup who is athletic, versatile, and not the horrible shooter many players his type are. I am not concerned about the 3. Have any of you guys ever played against someone with a 38" standing vertical jump? That is video game level stuff. I played a Puerto Rican young man with at least 43" max but he's 5'7". We have an athletic, good-shooting backup who is injured, and a playoff- experienced backup who will be gone after said 16+ months, probably retired. At that point we will be able to pick our backup 3 freely. I am not concerned about the 4. We have a starter who averages 17-21 points 9-11 rebounds and 3-4 assists every season. Oh, but his defense, they say, it's horrible, they say. Well guess what, the only complete 4 in the league is in LA and he's not going Townwards in a trade! We have a backup who can score midrange and around the hoop and rebound, and we have another backup who actually is the 'athletic shotblocking type' we just don't play him. And if said benchrider/sendownee doesn't suffice, there are plenty of the Speights/BWright type around the league available for the equivalent of about 2 Jenkinses. And Anthony Randolph for example I have not heard called untouchable. As far as the 5 position, -obvious statement omitted- other obvious statement omitted-, and we have a rookie who may be very useful these next 4 seasons. Let's remember the Spurs won championships starting centers like Nazr Mohammed and Rasho Nesterovic, hardly All-Stars.So for us going into the playoffs I think the only kind of trade that would make sense is for a good defender of 5s and 4s such as Anderson Varejao. Since he's injured until late March they'll probably take Landry and Rush. Or we could give them Tyler and Jenkins also and get Casspi back too. We would play Jefferson only at the 2 and that would allow Omri some minutes and we'll have his rookie rights. Since Cleveland is not going to the playoffs they can wait on Rush patiently and he'll fit in great on that perimeter with Gee and Waiters next year. Sounds good for both teams, huh? Landry, injured Rush, Tyler, Jenkins for injured Varejao and Casspi. That would be my trade this season and I would wait until the deadline week to do it in order to maximize Our Landry's worth.
