Rest Nash with Orlando, plan for future

 

We got to rest nash in Orlando. We don't have great chances to win (unless howard gets to Techs and Van Gundy starts with Turk and Earl Clark at 4 and 5 as a result).

Just let Brooks start and see what he can do. Lopez and Warrick are terrible together, while Gortat and Warrick aren't so bad. Perhaps this is because Lopez doesn't have the rebounding-machine power (that Gortat dpes) to cover for Warrick's, ahem, below All-Star caliber defense. Gortat also seems to help Warrick offensively more, too.

If we rest Nash for 5 days, he will likely be able to score 10 more points during the rest of the season. This will give us enough offense to overcome Frye's absence until he returns.

On the off season, trade Lopez for a top 10 1st round pick (not many good Centers out there this draft), draft Jimmer Freddette (or Brandon Knight), also draft Trey Thompkins with the other pick (Kevin Love 2.0,) and get one really good PF (Kevin Love, Al Horford, Luis Scola, or David West). Combined with Aldridge 2.0 (Frye), the Suns would be unstoppable next season.

Oh, and then Gortat can be starting center, and Siler can relieve him for 4-5 minute spurts, as our high-octane version of Bynum--speeding up our half court offense, and leaving the opponents, reeling, discomboblulated, and with big men foul trouble). Maximizes the efficiency of both centers, and everyone is happy.
