Got a terrific small forward prospect in Eddie Griffin from the Nets, while also clearing more cap room by ridding themselves of two of their first-round picks. Even if they don't sign Chris Webber or Antonio Davis, they're well-stocked on the perimeter.

Strengths: Backcourt: Steve Francis and Cuttino Mobley.

Weaknesses: Small forward, interior defense and shot blocking, Olajuwon?
