And I think Larry Bird should make this deal.
Two shooters. One free agent to be. And possibly the next great NBA center not named Greg Oden.

When you get pared down to 15, you'll be 4 moves--including draft picks--away from contending in the East. Which puts you in the play-offs in 2008-09. After that, who knows?
