It's not like I have a clue about being a General manager, but i'm going to throw out some ideas about what the orlando magic need to do this offseason to produce the most dominant team in the NBA and bring home a championship.  The Cavs will still be a threat if Lebron resigns with them.  The Hawks will also be a threat if Johnson returns.  The Celtics are old, but they are not a bad team. 

If Orlando wants to win a title, this is what I think they need to do.

Trade for Chris Paul.  Carter/Nelson for Paul/Posey.

We would take on 21,000,000 in salary and give New Orleans 24 million.

That takes care of our point guard position.

For shooting guard, I would resign J.J Redick and make him the starter.

When he gets a good chunk of playing time, he does pretty well.  If he was a starter, it wouldn't be crazy if he averages 12-15 points per game.  That takes care of the shooting guard position.

I would make Lewis to the small foward since he is not a true power forward.

For a power forward, I would make a move for Carlos Boozer giving him roughly 15 million a year. If that doesn't work out, I would try to get Al Harrington who would probably come 4 million dollars a year cheaper.

Resign Williams.  Don't resign Johnson or Barnes.

Starting Lineup.  PG - Paul   SG - Redick   SF - Lewis    PF - Boozer  C - Howard

Bench.  PG - Williams   SG - Rookie  SF - Pietrus   SF - Posey  PF - Anderson  PF - Bass  C - Gortat

Their payroll would be around 95 million with Boozer.  Around 90 million with Harrington.  Give me some ideas.  Submit your feedback
