    1st thing you would do?

    I am curious because there are a lot of disgruntled fans right now. If you were made GM what is the 1st thing you would do and why?

    1-Fire Sydney Lowe. Bring in Phil Johnson as an assistant. I wasn't crazy about Corbin and I'm still not; but he's the coach for now. But clearly, he desparately needs a superior basketball mind to challenge him
    2-Trade either Jefferson or Millsap and start Favors. I'm convinced Jefferson/Millsap is now even WORSE than Boozer/Okur when it comes to defending the paint while bringing about 75% of the offense that they brought
    3-Bring Foye off the bench for about 12-15mpg. I have every expectation that he'll fail in this spot; but he is not a starting NBA Guard. Not my fault. I didn't sign him.
    4-Start Burks at the 2. Tell him he gets a 16 minute base (8 in the first and 8 in the third) anything more than that is up to him and what he accomplishes.

    #1 Isn't the choice of assistant coaches usually up to the coach? So as the GM this one does not seem to be within your power.

    Most of these are coaches decisions not the GM. Trading Millsap or Jefferson is the only one strictly up to the GM.

    Trade Sap, Kanter and Favors can give us what we will lose with him, try my damndest to get a functional 2 gaurd for him. Basically someone like Foye who isnt 6'2".

    1. Trade Jefferson, even if for nothing in return. [please note this is not me saying he's worthless or that he's terrible, just that I think that's what would be best for the team]
    2. Explore possibility of moving Foye. No biggie if it doesn't happen.
    3. Corbin has to go. As soon as I felt I had a coach lined up I'd make the move. I'd inquire about Phil Johnson's availability. With money saved from moving Jefferson (if he can be dealt to a team with an exception or under the cap), I'd make a substantial offer to Phil Jackson, even if it'd be doubtful he'd accept, I'd make a big enough offer that he'd at least have to think about it. I've always thought Karl Malone would make a terrible coach. I'd bring him in on a quasi interim status if nothing else works out.
    4. Everybody but Favors and Kanter would be available, but moves would be unlikely.
    5. I'm finally on the Rondo bandwagon. If any combo of Jefferson/Burks/Millsap/GSpick/draft picks get him, I make a move.

    We have a lot of free agents and decisions for this offseason but we still have no idea what we have in our young guys. How do we formulate an off-season plan (where we sign several guys to multi-year deals) when we are scompletely ignorant of the capabilities, or lack thereof, of our young guys and the direction we're headed?

    Okay, then fire Corbin. Hire Matt Harpring to run a *****ing offense.

    Milsap or Jefferson? Trade them both. Get 3 bigs in return, preferably Tyler Zeller, Jason Thompson, and Jason Maxiel.

    In February trade Foye to a playoff contender for a future #1 draft pick.

    In February trade Watson or Tinsley to a playoff contender for a future 2nd Round draft pick.

    Change all Saturday night games to dollar beer night.

    Hire Karl Malone to any job in the organization, commentator, towel boy, assistant GM. Just hire him.

    Hire Gordon Chiesa as VP of PR.

    Revamp my draft evaluation model & methods.

    Hire somebody who understands the advance metrics, send them to the sloan conference.

    Find a bunch of Jerry Sloan, Larry Miller, Stockton and Malone quotes about competing, working hard, loving the game, appreciating the fans and such--paint them in the locker rooms, hall ways, bathrooms, practise facilities etc.
    Virtue lies in the struggle, not in the prize.

    From a coaching standpoint, Corbin has already implemented many of my offensive recommendations. As a GM, TANKVILLE!
